Thread. With regards to Kate Scottow I may be getting over excited but I smell some Human Rights Act 1998 Violations. Godness knows I love procedure & am a bit of a legislation nerd.
Scottow was arrested in front of her children and detained for 7hours. She was menstruating and breastfeeding, she had no access to sanitary products & couldn't express her milk. This lead to engorgement and painful mastitis, plus psychological pain of watching child's feeding
time pass and knowing she was not feeding him.
Could this be an Article 3?
Article 3, Prohibition of torture:
No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

1/ I can't express the upset/anger I feel about this verdict. Last year my mother was harassed & stalked by an ex boyfriend after she broke up with him. He had mentally abused her & sexually assaulted her. I had over 150 screenshots of tweet threads he posted
2/ on Twitter revealing her personal information & harassing her. He also maliciously & falsely reported my mum for benefit fraud & others (I don't want to be too detailed). Myself & others reported his tweets. #IStandWithScottow
3/ But Twitter did nothing. I even told them the police were involved. Never received a reply.
The police gave him a warning but they said he had my done anything illegal! And the assault was hard to prove, although they beleived her. #IStandWithScottow

Off to court for Kate Scottow's verdict #IStandWithScottow .

A reminder. This is how this started

Act I: Professor Kathleen Stock tweets about people scheming to get her and other gender critical academics fired
2. Act II: Hayden repeatedly calls Stock a transphobe and a twitter discussion ensues
Act III Hayden calls a black man a hypocrite for his stance in this debate.

Verdict is due tomorrow. Until then here are some court notes on Kate Scottow's case. Thread. #IStandWithScottow
Day 1. The question of persistence is posed, what does it mean? Does it mean 9 tweets over 6 months? Kate didn't tag the claimant in for many of them so it was not intended to be brought to the claimant's attention.
The legislation was not designed to cover public debate of politics. Malicious communications 2003, section 127 was to cover get 650 messages from one person for example. . #IStandWithScottow
