Who is Tommy Robinson, and why was he arrested?

In UK he was arrested for reporting on a case and sentence to 13 months.

Was his arrest justified?

Even more interesting is why you believe this is relevant to the US… He was already on a suspended sentence and violated the court order… That’s pretty typical of what happens when you disobey a judge… you get cited for contempt…

What was suspended sentence and violation?

An ethno nationalist who has violated multiple court orders and uses social media to spread anti-Muslim propaganda.

I guess a better question is why some feel a need to defend him.

Does it matter?

He had his day in court and lost… get over it…

No, he is a scum bag… apparently an entitled and stupid one at that… Why did you feel the need start this thread? Because of his views on Islam?

You can lie to yourself and pretend it is perfectly normal to look at an ethno nationalist who peddles in hate and see a victim in need of your support. The rest of us see him for what he is.

There are enough decent people in the world who could actually use a hand.

And now the rest of us have to pay the price for their lack of critical thinking skills.

Too stupid to follow a court order?

Sigh… He is not a US citizen…

So this is what he did?
