Arrested for alleged racist insults

"Quilmes defender Leandro Desabato was escorted off the field by police and later arrested after allegedly insulting Sao Paulo striker Grafite with racist remarks [...] Desabato was expected to be charged with racist insults, and could face from one to three years in prison if convicted"

In the US, you can lose your job for that sort of thing, but at least you can't go to jail.

Awesome. If only America was more like this. We wouldn't have nearly the amount of disrespectful and self-righteous bastards we do today.

Nashoba, really.. if America were like this, who do you think would be arrested first? Someone who made a racist comment, or someone who wore a rainbow necklace?

Freedom of speech is a /good/ thing.

by the way, the racist coment was "nigro" or negro in spanish, to a player of brazil.

Note that is very comon in our vocabulary to call negro someone that is not blond white. since we dont have black people in argentina, i guess this never was an issue before.
