British Asylum seekers flee to the USA


Racist who fled hate trial caught in America

From The Jewish Chronicle

A racist who fled the country after being convicted of five charges of publishing racially inflammatory material has been apprehended in America.

Stephen Whittle, 41, of Preston, Lancs, had written five offensive articles under the pen-name Luke O’Farrell, which were published on the internet.

He was convicted last Friday after a seven-week trial at Leeds Crown Court, but neither he nor his co-defendant, Simon Sheppard, of Selby, North Yorkshire, appeared when the hearing resumed on Monday.

Humberside Police, who had mounted the case against Whittle and Sheppard, sent out an all-ports alert. Sheppard, 51, ran the website on which Whittle’s articles appeared.

The pair were detained in Los Angeles where they are believed to have asked for political asylum. They were understood to be awaiting a hearing that would decide whether or not they would be granted asylum or be sent back to Britain.

During the hearing, prosecutor Jonathan Sandiford told the jury that Sheppard and Whittle held what they might regard as fairly extreme views about people who were Jewish, black, Asian, Chinese, Indian and, in reality, anyone who was not white. He said: “People in this country are entitled to be racist and they are entitled to hold unpleasant points of view.

“But what they aren’t entitled to do is publish or distribute written material which is insulting, threatening or abusive and is intended to stir up racial hatred or is likely to do so.”

The court heard that Sheppard’s website attracts 4,000 visitors a day.

Other articles on the same site included one written during the 1960s by the leader of the American Nazi Party, George Lincoln Rockwell.

The court heard that Sheppard was investigated by police following complaints and when his flat was searched in March 2005 police seized a number of computers and found documents entitled “Dumb Niggers, Gloating Jews”, “Make Niggers History”, “Diversity = Death” and “Rockwell, the
Swastika”.

Sheppard has been found guilty of 11 of the 18 counts he faced. The jury failed to agree on seven further charges relating to the possession, publishing and distribution of two pamphlets called “Tales of the Holohoax” and “Don’t Be Sheeple”.

The case was adjourned until July 28 when the prosecution will say whether or not it will seek a retrial.

They will be extradited for sure. The UK has good extradition relations with the U.S. and as the U.K. is deemed a 'safe' Country with no chance of you being discriminated against (unless you are from these shores by heritage.... :D ), their asylum claim will be laughed out of court. And the cherry on top will be they have also virtually guaranteed a permanent bar to re-entering the U.S. due to (imminent) adverse immigration history there.

There's no such thing as free speech in England anymore.

What if, as they do...............

That their 'crime' is not a crime in California ?

Crikey, they wrote an internet site.

What a crime ?

Our lads in Iraq and Afghanistan would love to be bombarded with words from a blogsite instead of bullets.


Who wants to see the site these poor buggers have been given time for ?

I have seen it and it's nothing.

We ex-forces have all seen worse.

Me? The money, the kicks, my mates and HM the Queen - not necessarily in that order. Civil liberties never crossed my radar.


In any case, I think it was the irony of seeking political asylum in a country full of the types of people he despises that was being commented on, not his reasoning.

dunstaggin might have revealed himself here:

http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=102942/start=1520.html

In this one I support the Russians, I have already provided proof that the Zionists started this war in this thread. The main Georgian leaders are mostly jewish/zionists .

Israel wants that oil !

I loved the gall of that idiot Bush spouting about invading democratic countries.

Because Russia's problems are seemingly Zionists, this is why they are losing the propaganda war in the West.

Most of the mass media is controlled by Zionists.

And also why the USA jumps to 'their' aid in two seconds.

In WW 2, it took the yanks how many years to support us ?

The freedom to not be hassled if acting responsibly.

Those fcukwits are part of the problem. The laws are only required because clowns like that and the others on the other fringes forget that you have responsibilities as well rights.

Right, that's me done feeding the troll. Must go and do something more useful.

I hate it when people bring up the Free Speech bollox. Look, if you're going to talk about your Jihad shite, or your Nazi shite, then you're gonna get kicked in. Besides the article already states:

During the hearing, prosecutor Jonathan Sandiford told the jury that Sheppard and Whittle held what they might regard as fairly extreme views about people who were Jewish, black, Asian, Chinese, Indian and, in reality, anyone who was not white. He said: “People in this country are entitled to be racist and they are entitled to hold unpleasant points of view.

“But what they aren’t entitled to do is publish or distribute written material which is insulting, threatening or abusive and is intended to stir up racial hatred or is likely to do so.”
So that's the charge, if you want to get technical.

Some of you guys seem to really want to defend this guy.

Let them stay in Los Angeles, who needs them here?

They can go and stay with Mel Gibson and he can tell them how hard it is for him to get a job these days.

You may have extreme views and want to propagate hatred but don't be surprised if you are disliked by the vast majority.

Well at our allotments there are two Jamaicans. They came to England in 1959 worked as mine faceworkers and after Maggie maggied the mines they got other wqork and have bever been sick or unemployed. For the not so accomplished gardebers like me they wioll always share their produce. Their allotmets have Cross of St George flags flying.

We had last year Kurdsish asylum seekers take an allotment. Guy sat back expecting hois women to do the work. Scrounging useless idle bastard.

My pharmacist is a Muslim she goes out of her way to make sure anyone on a war pension gets home delivery of medicines no repeat prescription probs etc. Lovely person.

So where is rambling old Knockneee going with this ?

I will judge a person by the content of their character and not be influenced by either fecking racist halfwits or just as bad Politically Correct halfwits. Feck em all. That is my freedom of speech.
