The Prosecutor is weary?

How does she think Brigitte Bardot feels? "The prosecutor said she was weary of charging Ms Bardot with offences relating to racial hatred and xenophobia." So why doesn't she just STOP?

I suppose believing in freedom of speech is way too...Americain.
A French court has fined former film star Brigitte Bardot 15,000 euros (£12,000) for inciting racial hatred.
Since when is Islam a race? Possibly BBC is leaving something out.

She was prosecuted over a letter published on her website that complained Muslims were "destroying our country by imposing their ways".

It is the fifth time Ms Bardot been convicted over her controversial remarks about Islam and its followers. This is her heaviest fine so far.
France is one of those countries which bien pensants hold up as ever so superior to the ever so provincial les Etats-Unis, dude. Are prosecutions such as this one of the reasons?

The fine - equivalent to $23,000 - related to a letter she wrote in December 2006 to the then Interior Minister, Nicolas Sarkozy...
Prosecuted for expressing her political views to the Interior Minister of France? That is Progressive.
...which was published on her website.
Ah, she posted her petition for redress of grievances where the public could read it. The Gaul of the subje..scratch that: Citoyen.
...in which she deplored the slaughter of animals for the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha.

She demanded that the animals be stunned before being killed.

She said she was "tired of being led by the nose by this population that is destroying us, destroying our country by imposing its acts".
First they came for the animal rightists, but I wasn't an animal rightist...

This rubbish is going on in Canada as well. Just ask
Macleans Magazine, which is in expensive kim chee right now with a so-called Human Rights Commission.

Nothing like commissars to ruin your day.
