Activist Tommy Robinson Who Speaks Out Against the UK Rape-Gang Epidemic Is Released from Prison
UK activist Tommy Robinson was sentenced to six months in prison in July for three counts of contempt of court.
He was sent back to prison immediately following the conclusion of the hearing.
TGP contributor Cassandra Fairbanks reported at the time that the sentence was highly unusual as contempt of court cases almost always lead to a non-custodial sentence — especially for journalists. Typically, a media outlet or journalist would face a slap on the wrist or light fine. Yet, one of the judges in the case, Dame Victoria Sharp, said that “nothing less than a custodial penalty would reflect the gravity” of the situation.
The judge admitted that they specifically wanted to make an example of Robinson.
Dame Victoria says she wants to make an example out of Tommy. (That's what the Attorney General said — he asked the court to punish citizen journalists.)
