Why the fuck would you drop attempted murder charges?

[–]lawnerdcanada 194 points195 points  (82 children)

Evidently he was heavily intoxicated; attempted murder is a specific intent offence, so the Crown may have determined that he was so intoxicated that there was no reasonable prospect of conviction on that charge.

[–]Guitar_of_Orpheus 426 points427 points  (40 children)

"Heavily intoxicated".

He told a police officer while in his van: “I’m going to kill a Muslim. I’m doing it for Britain. This is how I’m going to help the country. You people cannot do anything.”

He doesn't sound that intoxicated and I have no idea how you couldn't prove intent with a statement like that on the record.

When armed officers arrested Zakrocki, they found a Nazi coin in his pocket and a number of flyers for the far-right group Britain First and newspapers at his home in Harrow.

Barry said Zakrocki had been fixated by Muslims and had made donations to Britain First in the past.

This whole fucking thing stinks.

Do you think the UK government is sticking up for britain first Polish hooligans?

[–]Abedeus 43 points44 points  (0 children)

britain first Polish hooligans

As a Polish person - fuck them. They weren't wanted here and I assume they aren't wanted there either.

[–]pissedoffnobody 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Well, a female politician was assassinated by a crazed white nationalist but nobody actually called it that even though that's exactly what it was. Got acknowledged but hardly caused the seismic wave of awareness some hoped it would in exposing how uneducated and ruthless some of these xenophobes are to the degree they'll attack innocent women trying to represent their constituencies, murder them in broad daylight and be unrepentant about depriving a family of a wife and mother, and that person of their life.

The UK government doesn't stick up for them as much as acknowledge them and pretend it's a manageable problem and they're conscious of the danger, but they don't actually fucking do anything but offer their sympathies to the victims of these situations rather than actually fucking do anything to rectify or solve the problems going forward to prevent them from occuring again. Tone deaf plutocrats who will sell the country down the river and then blame the public for it.

[–]ConsoleWarCriminal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They already jail people for racist tweets, I'm not sure what else you want them to do.

[–]BloomEPU 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love how he pretty much said verbatim "I am an islamophobe and I am going to commit a hate crime" and got off with it.

[–]thatswhatshesaidxx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“I’m going to kill a Muslim. I’m doing it for Britain. This is how I’m going to help the country. You people cannot do anything.”

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that statement directly, like 1:1, fit with the definition of terrorism?

[–]Chrisnyfe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He doesn't sound that intoxicated

Those are written words, not an audio recording. You have no idea how he sounded; whether this is a quote or a paraphrase that the arresting officers could make out in his slurs.

That being said, the chance that the excuse "I was drunk when I decided to try murdering someone" could successfully defend the offence is a travesty of justice.

[–]BlatantConservative 58 points59 points  (4 children)

So here in the US, in pretty much every state, voluntary intoxication is not a defense for a crime.

I guess its a defense to premeditated murder, but that just means you would drop it to second or third degree murder or something

[–]lawnerdcanada 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So here in the US, in pretty much every state, voluntary intoxication is not a defense for a crime.

That's a significant overstatement. Many states have enacted statutes which make voluntary intoxication unavailable as a defence even to specific intent crimes, but some have not done so.

[–]XTXm1x6qg7TM 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Does that mean involuntary intoxication is a legal defense for a crime?

[–]joshuawah 40 points41 points  (0 children)

I'm no legal expert but if you could somehow prove you were drugged involuntarily, you could make a case for that

[–]BlatantConservative 20 points21 points  (0 children)

NAL, just from a family of lawyers and I ask a lot of questions and hear my parents talk about cases when we all go drinking together. And I only know Virginia, but if someone spikes your drink with PCP or something and you end up committing a crime, it is a defense.

Note that defense does not necessarily mean that you get off 100 percent, it means that the judge and jury can hear it as a defense and the judge can direct the jury to think of it as a reasonable defense. I'd say 90 percent likely chance of getting a not guilty verdict.

What would probably happen if someone's drink got spiked with PCP and they attacked someone is that the prosecutor would either decline to prosecute or charge them with some relatively minor crime.

[–]IforgotwhatIwasdoing 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Good to know that if I ever plan to murder someone in UK, to get drunk first.

[–]MyLargeFoot 12 points13 points  (17 children)

the Crown may have determined that he was so intoxicated that there was no reasonable prospect of conviction on that charge.

Then what's stopping every murderer from taking a few shots before firing a few shots?

[–]MartinSchou 21 points22 points  (15 children)

Then what's stopping every murderer from taking a few shots before firing a few shots?

The lack of guns in the UK?

[–]IforgotwhatIwasdoing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's probably pretty hard, even if drunk, to claim you didn't intend to shoot those people.

[–]BlueCherryAntiques 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That seems very odd, there would appear to be a whole raft of over potential crimes he could have been charged with if they couldn't make the original one stick. GBH, ABH, Assault, Assault with a deadly weapon, Carrying a concealed weapon etc.

I'm surprised they didn't pursue some other avenues of prosecution.

[–]stevenjd -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

[–]EmperorOmnesDux[S] 9 points10 points  (13 children)

Wow. The UK has a messed up justice system too?

I really hope they're watching him, my heart is aching from the stress.

[–]Deez_N0ots 29 points30 points  (12 children)

Just so you know, the US justice system was practically copied from English common law, the deviations only started after independence.

[–]IforgotwhatIwasdoing 7 points8 points  (0 children)

We are a deviant country.

[–]lawnerdcanada 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At the time of independence, intoxication was not accepted as a defence, even to specific intent crimes, in England. That changed in the US over the course of the 19th century (and has since been reversed by statute in many US states).

[–]zoltan99 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Remind me to get drunk before going and being a human shitstain, so I can get away with it.

[–]Bad-Bone-Being 42 points43 points  (1 child)

He isnt a muslim so its not a terror charge

[–]January423 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Trying your own nationals on terrorism charges would set a bad precedent. Those laws are made for foreigners.

[–]nioki23 163 points164 points  (10 children)

I won't ever understand how trying to kill someone by driving into them is not treated as attempted murder.

[–]pbradley179 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Or at the very least in this case drunk driving

[–]iseeyou1312 3 points4 points  (2 children)

It was. He was sentenced to 32 weeks for dangerous driving, and 6 weeks for drunk driving. Which is about how long you get for attempted murder in the UK anyway.

Regardless, unless the media is leaving out some extremely important details, it seems ludicrous that the prosecution could not convict him of a more serious charge.

[–]Mindflower2 5 points6 points  (1 child)

In 21st century UK, murder is perfectly fine when Neo-Nazis do it.

[–]victormoses 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Didn't kill anyone though did he?

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'm sure he regrets his mistake and will try harder next time.

[–]nothingtoseeherenope 126 points127 points  (14 children)

The Old Bailey heard that Marek Zakrocki, 48, also gave a Nazi salute and shouted “white power” before driving his van at Kamal Ahmed...

Oh great. It's come full circle where assholes go from screaming "Allah Akbar" to "White Power" when doing crazy shit.

[–]Sence 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Only the people who shout those statements before inflicting harm on others don't see the similarities

[–]January423 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fighting fire with fire is a perfectly legitimate option.

[–]escapegoat84 24 points25 points  (9 children)

The day that the Deep Water Horizon spill happened, a guy walked into my local Hastings (when they were still open RIP), yelled WHITE POWER! and then aimed at the nearest black person (a young woman who was a barista in the cafe) and shot his shotgun at her, blowing off 3 of her fingers as she shielded her face from the blast.

He then drove to a local bar and tried to do the same thing, but the doorman confronted him and the guy shot him point blank in the chest. The guy later drove home, and killed himself with a pistol when the police arrived.

This is a thing that has been happening for awhile, it's just no one cares when a stupid nazi murders people on Hitler's birthday.

[–]bruffed 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Hey, your hometown is Wichita Falls!

[–]escapegoat84 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Wouldn't have been paticularly hard to find that out from the details I gave, lol.

[–]bruffed -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I live in Wichita Falls jerk.

[–]27Rench27 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Could you link me to this? I'm not trying to call bullshit, but only losing 3 fingers while shielding your face from a shotgun seems... wrong. Like, was her face completely fine? Did he just miss?

[–]escapegoat84 2 points3 points  (1 child)

She threw her hand up to shield her face when he pointed the gun at her. It probably saved her life, he was using your regular hunting shot so it wasn't like he fired a slug at her. A slug would have probably tumbled through her hand and into her head.

But here is a couple of articles:

[–]January423 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Who the fuck uses birdshot to shoot people? Slugs or 00 is where it's at!

[–]GinsterUnit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

don't think you can get those in England very easily or at all. also we use a different size scale for shotgun ammo, its kinda confusing.

[–]Rafaeliki 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I mean he's a supporter of Britain First and they've already had a guy scream "Britain First" as he murdered an MP.

[–]January423 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Blowback!

[–]PM_ME_YOUR_CUTE_HATS 10 points11 points  (0 children)

They let a terrorist out of prison.

[–]FieldMarshalFry 60 points61 points  (3 children)

when the hell are we going to declare Britain First a terrorist organisation? they regularly advocate for violence against minorities, one of their members murdered a MP on the street screaming "Britain First" and "Freedom for Britain", this knucledragger attempted a terror attack, and they regularly go around terrorising and intimidating the Muslim population of the country!

[–]stevenjd 13 points14 points  (0 children)

when the hell are we going to declare Britain First a terrorist organisation?

There needs to be three more things happen first:

  • Britain First needs to win government;
  • take over the country and ban all other parties;
  • fight and lose a disastrous war;
  • and the UK has to be liberated by military invasion.

Right wing racist movements rarely get treated as terrorists unless they've lost a war.

[–]Kouyate42 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Certainly if I were in charge then BF would have been on the proscription list a long time ago.

[–]vanillacustardslice 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I assume a big part of it is that these organisations serve as a decent way to monitor activity and keep people away from more extreme groups.

[–]Painless8 39 points40 points  (6 children)

Can't he at least be deported? Doesn't sound like a very nice person.

[–]Deez_N0ots 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Yeah can we send him back to the ‘shithole’ country of Hell?

[–]IforgotwhatIwasdoing 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That's Hel to you, sir.

[–]spinarandi 19 points20 points  (3 children)

The court heard he had been drinking heavily that day and had grabbed his wife’s arm and threatened to kill people and then himself. Before driving at Ahmed he had pushed an unknown Asian man and shouted “white power, white power”.

[–]kutuup1989 13 points14 points  (2 children)

He managed to convince someone to marry him?

[–]vanillacustardslice 8 points9 points  (1 child)

It was a white wedding.

[–]lordkickass17 67 points68 points  (33 children)

What are Britain First even trying to do? Islam is a religion. Britain cant ban a religion. These groups will only increase hate towards muslims

[–]Jamessuperfun 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Their whole purpose is hate towards Muslims. Their leader at one point was convicted for breaching a court order to stay out of mosques as he keeps going into them to harass people.

[–]nowherefortherebels 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Fun fact about these cunts: They have the most facebooks likes of any political party in the UK.

[–]lordkickass17 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Most of their likes im guessing were by Trump supporters after he shared those videos. BTW, they are having very less likes in their posts.

[–]nowherefortherebels 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They use underhand tactics to get the likes-for every racist post they'll post about how wrong animal/child abuse is. People see those posts and like the page because of course hurting animals/children is wrong.

[–]Take_Beer 72 points73 points  (25 children)

A lot of countries have banned religions, ban on Scientology being a good example. Britain First, on the other hand, is a terrorist organization. They aren't really interested in a ban on Islam, they want to kill everyone who isn't white and Christian. So wouldn't expect them to go down the legislative path if they were politically active.

[–]Juronell 75 points76 points  (0 children)

Technically, they've banned Scientology by declaring it not a religion.

[–]Shiroi_Kage 19 points20 points  (6 children)

Britain is secular, therefore doesn't ban religions. As for Scientology, there are very good arguments why it's not a religion. In fact, the first time it was declared a religion in any official manner was due to blackmail.

[–]_FinestJellyBeansRaw 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Britain is secular,

CoE is still our national religion iirc

[–]lawnerdcanada 0 points1 point  (14 children)

[–]EmperorOmnesDux[S] 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Russia.

[–]lawnerdcanada 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think you are wrong. Do you have a source indicating that the practice of Scientology is banned in Russia?

[–]Minion_Retired 13 points14 points  (4 children)

[–]lawnerdcanada -1 points0 points  (3 children)

That article lists not a single country where Scientology has been banned.

[–]Minion_Retired 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I never once said it had been banned anywhere. But the Wikipedia link does accurately list places where it is considered a religion and places where it is not.

[–]lawnerdcanada 0 points1 point  (1 child)

First, the comment I responded to was:

A lot of countries have banned religions, ban on Scientology being a good example.

Second, my comment which you responded to was:

What countries have "banned" Scientology?

There is an enormous difference between an organization or practice being banned and a particular organization not receiving recognition as a religion or charity, and in the context of the original comment, the latter - non-recognition - is irrelevant.

[–]Minion_Retired 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It does make mention of the numerous times the supposed religion has been stripped of or not granted the right to call itself a religion. Thus banning Scientology from behaving as one in those countries.

Goodbye.

[–]greenking2000 -1 points0 points  (6 children)

[–]XTXm1x6qg7TM 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Their policies page on their website is good if you're looking for a laugh, they want a US bill of rights system and then in the very next page state they want to ban all Muslims.

[–]pm_your_lifehistory -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Scientology is not a religion. Dont take my word for it ask the founder:

"Scientology 1970 is being planned on a religious organization basis throughout the world. This will not upset in any way the usual activities of any organization. It is entirely a matter for accountants and solicitors."

[–]fellow-human-join-us 20 points21 points  (4 children)

I wonder if the law would act diffently if he said ”I am going to kill a christian” and had isis flyers in his pocket and so on.

[–]Hypnoncatrice 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Probably the same, since its so easy to get murder dropped for various weird reasons and he already served the rest of what he was convicted for on remand.

[–]fellow-human-join-us 1 point2 points  (2 children)

You dont think intelligence offices would be intrested in locking him up?

[–]Hypnoncatrice 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah, because they know who he is now.

[–]tomatopathe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nope. They're watching him, to see who he interacts with

[–]Realdogfood 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Sounds like a regular good guy standing up to those pesky immigrants, i remember the good old UK where there were no muslims, everybody shouted "white power" and beat their wives.

A country full of people like Marek Zakrocki would truly be a blessed place, or perhaps not.

[–]Amanoo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Just a concerned citizen. A moderate right-winger.

[–]4821687 28 points29 points  (15 children)

Marek Zakrocki. Now, that's a very British name...

[–]EmperorOmnesDux[S] 25 points26 points  (14 children)

It's polish.

[–]Dongstoppable 36 points37 points  (11 children)

These people hate immigrants so much they use the fact that this immigrant hates immigrants to justify their hate for immigrants and don't even understand for a second the weird hypocrisy of it.

[–]Abedeus 18 points19 points  (8 children)

What's stupider is that he's a Polish neo-Nazi, basically. Absolute morons like him with no education don't even realize the damage Hitler and his ilk did to our country over half a century ago...

And yeah, he's an immigrant who hates immigrants. That's two layers of stupidity.

[–]Amanoo 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Or to his own country. The Polish suffered greatly under Hitler. They should be some of the last people to be neo-Nazis.

[–]Abedeus 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Well, I did mean "our country" as in "Poland"...

[–]Amanoo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh right. Since it was a story about something that happened in Britain, I assumed you were British. The Nazis did quite a bit if damage there too. Basically, both Brits and Poles shouldn't be Nazis.

[–]Neosantana 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, all five Muslims in Poland are really overrunning the place

[–]Hungry_Lion 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You would think so, but for whatever reason Eastern Europe is rife with Neo-Nazis compared to their Western neighbors.

[–]stevenjd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Or to his own country. The Polish suffered greatly under Hitler. They should be some of the last people to be neo-Nazis.

That's not how it works though. When you hate enough, you don't care how much harm happens to yourself and those you care about, so long as the people you hate suffer worse.

About half of US politics is driven by angry white people voting for people who will enact policies that hurt them a lot, but will hurt blacks even more.

[–]AemonDK 0 points1 point  (1 child)

From what i've seen from the internet, poland has a pretty massive problem with that.

[–]Abedeus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not really helping is the fact that our own government is filled (well, after recent changes a bit less so) with conspiracy lunatics from the ultra-conservative/Catholic martyrdom cult of a ruling party.

[–]Amanoo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This kind of hypocrisy is kind of what I've come to expect from these far right types. They often seem to believe that you don't have to integrate into the country you were born in. You can misbehave as much as you want if you were born there. In my home city, they've even gone around stabbing clerks in the face and throwing molotovs at a mosque, hardly the kind of action you expect from someone who's integrated in western society. I doubt they'd even be able to pass an integration course. But they do expect foreigners to integrate, and even then it's never good enough. It doesn't matter to them whether the foreigner behaves like a serious piece of shit, or like a model citizen. They're never integrated well enough.

I've had it with these people. If you live here, you should act like you belong here. I don't give a damn whether you entered the country through the border, or through your mother's vagina. Act normally, or leave.

[–]Kouyate42 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Apparently this is a thing in other countries. In America it's not unknown for people whose families immigrated to the US in the 20s/30s/40s or whatever to then talk in quite negative manner about recent immigrants. Then the native racists jump on the bandwagon.

[–]freshthrowaway1138 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The best part to come out of this will be that it gives the police someone to keep track of for further violence. Which means they can round up a bunch of Britain First-ers when they attempt a larger violent act.

[–]AdamIIA 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Britain first terrorist*. Oh nevermind, i forgot the uk government and the uk media couldn't care less when It's white people killing muslims.

[–]AlexJonesesGayFrogs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I bet $20 he'll assault or try to kill another Muslim in his lifetime

[–]ArrestMyHairyChest 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]hungry_lobster 3 points4 points  (4 children)

And what happened to our white nationalist terrorist in the US? The Charlottesville guy? Every time I look him up I find articles of him facing trial and that’s it. Why in the fuck are we letting these domestic terrorists get away with this shit?

[–]Martial_Nox 9 points10 points  (3 children)

The Charlottesville guy is facing trial and has been charged with first degree murder. Serious shit. Trials take a while. It isn't like CSI where everything is wrapped up in a week.
