i respect double jeopardy and its precident over any one singular case. in the US the only loop hole is is if the defendent bribed a judge or juror ( hence one was never in jeopardy in the first place)so D.J is absolute.i dont know if that clause exists in the U.K but like i said double jeopardy is...

Was she spared a custodial sentence just due to asd though? From what I've read she swung a bag at someone and an ice boot came out of the top of the bag (it was outside Deeside Ice Rink). Sure she shouldn't have been swinging a bag at anyone but she didn't mean to cause serious harm. Sentencing in...

No. The case occurred in the U.K., and I am a U.S. citizen. Even the U.K. has laws against Double Jeopardy (trying someone again after they've been acquitted). Signing this petition would show contempt for the U.K. justice system, and a retrial on the basis of a petition signed by citizens of other...

Please sign this petition. If autistic people are acquitted from court for violent crimes (or any other crime for that matter) for no reason other than their ASD, it makes it many times harder for autistics to be given any kind or respect or trust in broader society. https://www.change.org/p/rt-hon-...

Nobody should be forced to wear anything to indicate their demographic against their wishes. I would sooner go to prison. They may as force people to wear yellow stars.

As for the OP, Autism isn't a mental illness so it shouldn't apply to us.

It would be a diabolical precedence.

Do you believe that the government should "help" people with Aspergers? I find the government trying to "help" any minority offensive. It makes me feel somehow lower. I think it depends on the individual. Apparently some aspies here are fortunate enough to be able to thrive in a...

Usually i complain about the activities of the reactionary lobby but i hope this is an issue that all or at least most parts of the PPR political spectrum can unite around. Theres a notorious figure doing the rounds at the moment by the name of Keri Rivera who is promoting a group called 'CD autism'...

Ultimately, its not Vice's fault that ISIS exists. Were it not for NATO's adventures of 2003 then the lesser of evils would be in office and ISIS would still be a pipe dream among those that the Ba'athist regime kept in check.

I suppose when you come from a country of settler-colonialists it only makes sense to stand with other settler colonialists. Amirite? We witness exactly the same flavour of Israel ass licking here in the planter descendant controlled parts of Ulster. This is a signpost somewhere in Belfast. https://...

Not reporting something doesn't make something go away. Quite the contrary.

If something is truly bad, then impartial journalism can be instrumental in exposing them for what they are.
