Garda statement describe him as "a male, adult teenager" so we are probably talking 18 or 19, i.e. not a young kid who didn't know any better, so fück him and his abhorrent views.
Mental health shouldnt be used as a crutch to get out of anything...sick of that card being played as many people with mental health issues dont engage in this sort of behaviour or other nasty carry on

Yup. Well, depending on the circumstances. The latter can be bullied because of racism. The former is bullied because of hair colour. One is protected by law, the other is shrugged off as 'life' (not much good telling that to a ginger kid who's being bullied simply because they're ginger).

The young lad, he's a racist dope, but then most racists are dopes anyway. He'll get the full force of the law here, to make an example I reckon.

Yeah but if I didn't write that line which you and another poster are focusing on, I'd have the "You don't know, he could have mental health issues" responses.

Your fight isn't with me buddy. I agree, and I regret posting in this thread in the first place never mind writing that line.

Me too but I doubt he will.
Probably small suspended sentence and bound to the peace.

A edgy kid who didn't realise the real world is not 4chan. He'll probably get a fine for racial hate which is appropriate.

Bit off putting the adults here who want to 'make an example' of him tbh.

Bit off putting some adults here are apologists for this kind of behavior.

Lad, do you have any idea what goes on on 4chan? Or even mainstream sites like youtube and twitter? Let's round up everyone who used a racial slur on the internet?

Drop the white saviour complex and think rationally.

Most of it will probably be starred out.

I know I'm not meant to look at them but these messages still hit me so hard man. This is a child!!! "You are a ****ing monkey", "**** coon monkey ******". Direct message to me from Patrick O'Brien on IG. This kid as a direct line into me & is able to send this without any worry. https://t.co/6noGvmkb4u
Glad O'Brien is being held to account by Ian Wright. Horrible racist language.

You won't be around much longer, so little point engaging with you.

Very light sentence for the young man. I've seen how angry my nephews get when they play video games, but that's no excuse for the vile racism sent to Ian Wright. It does nothing to lessen the idea that there's a real undertone of racism towards minorities in this country. He should have been made an example of.
