A Maximum of 10 YEARS? Beating up people get less. Killing someone can get you less years.

How the **** do they come up with 10 YEARS as maximum punishment for wearing a silly mask?

Have you ever seen a government fear and hate a face so much?
User avatar #184 - xxhunterxx (06/23/2013) [-]
Who the **** cares, if you run fast enough they can't arrest you and can't identify your face. You're clean.

Sounds like a good reason to wear a mask and riot.
#169 - crazyeyedbioll (06/23/2013) [-]
This encourages the edgy fags to stop being ****** and take off the fawkes mask. which btw every time you buy one to feel all cool and anon you give money to the big corporations you hate.

Which is why I plan on wearing a legitimate gas mask if/when protests and riots break out. Try and tear gas me now, pigs.

Jesus Christ, it's exactly what happened in V for Vendetta...
Well, except this is 10 years in prison instead of a bullet to the chest. But still!

Are you talking about that girl who said she was raped by some guy who was a big part of the high school football team?
User avatar #173 to #166 - frodoswaggins (06/23/2013) [-]
no, he is talking about the chick that got drunk and had sex with 3 different guys... later she told her friend that she felt like a slut... so she went to the police and told them that the 3 guys raped her... long story short the police found out she was lying, the 3 guy got the whole thing cleaned of their record, and she is supposed to be going to jail for 2 years
User avatar #174 to #173 - zorororonoa (06/23/2013) [-]
The police didn't "find out" she ended up confessing. If she felt like keeping the lie going I doubt the authorities would have found out and those guys would have had their lives ruined
User avatar #180 to #174 - frodoswaggins (06/23/2013) [-]
i know i worded it stupidly... "the police found out"... but the reason she confessed is because she wasn't consistent with her information, and the police took notice of it and interregated her about it... then she confessed

On one side I can totally understand that using masks can be interpreted as protecting your identity while comitting a crime. But 10 years is overkill. A hefty fine or maybe something like 3 months would be more suitable.
#156 - infinitereaper (06/22/2013) [-]
This sounds like a good reason to

RIOT!

long story short, **** like this is just going to make it worse.

I sort of get this. The main part of wearing a mask these days is to instill more fear than necessary or to show support for a special group and rarely to actually cover the face. Its unnecessary
User avatar #154 to #150 - wallsbad (06/22/2013) [-]
Well, then tell the police, ATF, CIA, ect, ect, to stop wearing ski masks when dealing with cases. They don't need them. They have nothing to fear.
#158 to #154 - anonymous (06/22/2013) [-]
Are you seriously that stupid. Police officers suffer retaliation from certain criminal groups. I'm talking about having their families kidnapped or killed, that's why they wear masks.
User avatar #160 to #158 - wallsbad (06/23/2013) [-]
Same basic concepts for protesters. They just want to protect themselves. So tell me how that make sense?
#188 to #160 - winternetz (06/23/2013) [-]
protect themselves from getting arrested for committing a crime. the little ******* shouldn't be ******* rioting anyways.
User avatar #189 to #188 - wallsbad (06/23/2013) [-]
Nearly all large scale riots stem from the actions of the police monitoring what usually start as peaceful protests and such. Why shouldn't someone be able to protect themselves and their identity while fighting against something so unjust? People all over the world have lost or never had civil liberties to begin with, and now i'm being told I can't wear a piece of plastic on my safe to keep my identity hidden? Because if an employer is able to identify you at a riot, you can be fired? You'd rather be a mindless drone and bow down before oppression and let it **** you in the ass? This is much more than people protecting themselves. This is just another peg on the ladder to oppression.
#191 to #189 - winternetz (06/23/2013) [-]
also, you have to think about the police p.o.v.. they have to make sure the big crowd of people who are all angry, plus being riled up by the excitement and people shouting, don't escalate things. they are trying to keep the rest of the public and property safe. wearing masks and bringing weapons just makes the police nervous, and for good reasons. there is really only one reason to wear a mask, to conceal your identity. that guy fauxe mask isn't going to stop the bean bags, tear gas and batons anyways.
#190 to #189 - winternetz (06/23/2013) [-]
rioting is dumb as **** , protesting is smart. rioting just makes police shoot you and the people you are trying to convince stop listening to what you are trying to say. the message gets lost.

i have no idea where you live or who you are but i am assuming your idea of oppression is having your parents tell you that you aren't allowed to go out tonight. (either that or you live in canada and your hockey team just lost the stanley cup)
User avatar #192 to #190 - wallsbad (06/23/2013) [-]
Oppression is not being able to have rights and liberties to protect ourselves against tyranny and enemies. Rights are being constantly infringed all over the world. Don't act like just because you feel safe right now doesn't mean people all around you and around the world aren't being affected. Have you even seen what's going on in Brasil and, in general, all over the world? You turn a blind eye because you're too much of a fat introvert and a coward to do anything about it.

And I assure you, my parents, who live four states over, have no say in whether I go out tonight. Cute to assume that, though. Top lels. Maximum kek.
#193 to #192 - winternetz (06/23/2013) [-]
there is a difference in the rioting that happens in developing countries and developed ones, but canada is not a developing ******* country. if you riot in canada, it is because you are some spoiled **** that should get tear gassed. this article is talking about a canadian law. somewhere in a place like brazil where they are actually fighting injustice and tyranny then rioting is is fighting for what is right, not fighting for what you feel you deserve.

you obviously live in america, so don't talk like you are being personally oppressed you stupid **** . if you feel that strongly, join your military and see how wonderful and kind you treat the third world countries.
