tlk: Jail Time for Reviving Engine in a Racist Manner
A motorist in Scotland, UK is fined and sent tonail for fwo days for the some of revving his Lotus Esprit in a racist manner.
Scottish motorist Ronnie Hutton, 49, was jailed for two days for the crime of "revving his car in a racist manner" last
September. After waiting more than a year to try the case, the Stirling Sheriff court finally convicted Hutton last week of
breach of the peace and fined him (US ).
An offcuts officer, Chief Inspector Eoin Jenkins, said Hutton had revved the engine of his Lotus Esprit near two Muslims
last year. After Hutton dismissed Jenkins' concern with an expletive, Jenkins immediately dispatched two police officers to
Hutton' s home where he was taken and thrown in jail for two days without formal charges. Hutton explained that his revving
had nothing to do with nearby pedestrians, rather, he was keeping his temperamental and expensive engine from
stalling and being damaged.
To be convicted for revving my car in a busy street is hard to take," Hutton told the Sunday Mail newspaper. "Does this mean anyone driving a noisy car in
Scotland is now a criminal?"
Asked in court why the man may have revved his engine, Hana Saad, 23, said through an interpreter, "Maybe because we are Muslim."
