Journalist arrested for filming alleged Muslim rape gang outside court

Activist turned journalist for Rebel Media Tommy Robinson was arrested on the 9th of May at 4.30am at his home. His boss Ezra Levant believes the arrest was in retaliation for a documentary he made about the British police. It certainly seems very odd that they would arrest him at 4.30am in the morning when they could have arrested him outside the courthouse at the time as he filmed in full view of the police. Robinson says in his periscope that he was arrested for recording paedo suspects outside the court.

If you have read Tommy’s book ‘Enemy of the State’ you will know that he has described in detail similar police tactics that have been used to try to silence him in the past.

As I am a subscriber of The Rebel Media I received an e-mail about the arrest from Ezra Levant.

Dear Juana,

This morning in the United Kingdom, just after 4 a.m., the Bedfordshire Police went to our reporter Tommy Robinson’s house, banged on his door, woke up his entire family, arrested Tommy, and took him to jail.

What did he do to deserve such a shocking visit? Why did the police have to come to his home in the dead of night — upsetting his wife and scaring his children?

I’ll tell you what he did, because he was there on Rebel business. Two days ago, Tommy Robinson and two other UK Rebel reporters went to the Canterbury Crown Court, to report on the trial of an alleged Muslim rape gang.

That’s it. That’s all they did. That’s why Tommy was arrested.

See, unlike the mainstream media that prefers to cover up horrific crimes like that, we report them. These four Muslim men are on trial for allegedly gang-raping a 16-year-old girl who wandered into their kebab shop asking for directions.

Tommy and our team went to court to cover the story — and to ask the accused men some questions. That’s what real journalists are supposed to do.

Incredibly, when court officers saw Tommy, they actively worked with the accused men to sneak them out of the court through another door, so we couldn’t film them!

Just whose side are the police on?

Well, we found out at 4 a.m. this morning, didn’t we?

The police claim that Tommy was in “contempt of court” for filming his report outside the courthouse — for “live streaming” some quick comments from his cell phone while standing on the court house steps. But that’s where journalists report on court cases all the time. Tommy didn’t do anything unusual. He didn’t film anyone other than himself. And when a court official asked him to move, he did.

We did our work, and then we left. If Tommy had done anything wrong, why didn’t the police say something, right then and there?

Why would Bedfordshire police, nearly two hours’ drive away from Canterbury, be involved at all?

Why did they raid his home at 4 a.m.?

And why did they only arrest Tommy — and not our cameraman and producer, who were there with him?

Is it because Jon Boutcher, Bedfordshire’s Chief Constable, sees Tommy’s journalism as a threat, and wants to intimidate him? This has happened to Tommy before — time and time again.

But this time, it’s different. Because this time, Tommy’s got friends. Tommy’s got you.

In the e-mail Ezra asks subscribers to sign a petition to the Chief of police and to also help with legal costs as Rebel has hired a leading law firm to represent Tommy.

…We’re doing important journalism that’s in the public interest. That includes telling the truth about the wave of Muslim rape gangs that have exploited thousands of British girls. The British people need to know. And Canadians and Americans need a warning of what’s to come.

We’re going to keep doing our journalism — even if politically correct police chiefs don’t like it.

But for now, we have to save Tommy. He has been there for us — now let’s be there for him.
