British activist Tommy Robinson was arrested Friday morning outside a courthouse for “breach of the peace” for livestreaming the court cases of ten men accused of participating in “child grooming gangs,” aka child rape gangs.
From the Evening Standard:
English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson claimed he was arrested for breach of the peace outside a courthouse in Leeds.
The right wing activist was streaming a Facebook live video outside Leeds Crown Court, where a grooming trial is reportedly underway, on Friday morning.
Robinson, real name Stephen Lennon, can be seen being led towards the back of a police van and searched in footage posted to his Facebook page.
He can be heard saying: “I’m being arrested? I am being arrested…I’m ‘causing a breach of peace’…I’m being arrested for breaching the peace.”
…Officers can be seen leading Mr Robinson into the back of a police van while reading him his rights.

His supporters said they fear that if he’s sent to prison he’ll be killed by Muslim gangs:
Tommy warned us about these rape gangs.
You laughed and called him a racist
Tommy will die in prison at the hands of these gangs.
You will laugh and say it served him right
