Here in America, people have the freedom to be idiots,racist, and bigots. As long as a person does not threaten, or asked for another to be harmed, there should be no crime.

The Tree of Mamre

Reporters on BBC’s Panorama series tracked down and confronted an Internet troll. Here is what they found:

Daren Burton (AKA) Nimrod Severn justifies his activities by saying that Facebook is an open forum, so he can say and do anything he likes. By the same token, since city streets are also public, then he must believe that he has the right to take a dump on the sidewalk in front of someone else’s house if it so pleases him. After all, to him it is not really illegal or immoral if the jail term is nine weeks or less.

What a sad, pathetic individual.
