They must not have any type of free speech laws over there or something.

While Bridget Bardot might be asking for trouble for saying some derogatory remarks I just don’t see how a government can put someone on trial and sentence them to prison for making these remarks.

Prosecutors asked that the Paris court hand the 73-year-old former sex symbol a two-month suspended prison sentence and fine her 15,000 euros ($23,760) for saying the Muslim community was “destroying our country and imposing its acts”.

Since retiring from the film industry in the 1970s, Bardot has become a prominent animal rights activist but she has also courted controversy by denouncing Muslim traditions and immigration from predominantly Muslim countries.

She has been fined four times for inciting racial hatred since 1997, at first 1,500 euros and most recently 5,000.

Ummmm, does anyone think that perhaps the riots in Paris might have had anything to do with that? Or does anyone not remember this?

Remember people. Burning cars and rioting for weeks on end is staple in the religion of peace.

‘m not familiar with laws in France so I don’t know why they felt it was necessary to put a woman on trial for just speaking her mind. Disagree with her, fine, but imprison her? WTF France?
