Hate crime is defined as any crime that is perceived to be motivated by:
– Sexual orientation
You are probably thinking my god! Those boys that pushed that woman into the canal should be charged for their actions, or the people shouting abuse at people of a different nationality, gender, members of the LGBTQ should be punished for the emotional distress they put upon others? We at LawEd agree, but unfortunately, Ireland does not have any specific legislation to deal with hate crime, so very few people are actually convicted!
We are very much becoming a technologically advanced world, and we actually do not have as much control over our personal data as we might think. Anyone with enough motive can get what they are looking for online.
Some of the ways of being able to stalk online and receive info you probably don’t even realise you’re giving away are:
Here’s a list of the A list celebs that have been doxxed (the ones we are aware of anyway!)
– Kim Kardashian
– Beyonce and her husband JayZ
– Donald Trump
– Lady Gaga
– Britney Spears
– Arnold Schwarzenegger
– Tiger Woods
The moral of this blog post is to watch what you do online, think again before posting, is this something someone out there could use against you? Do you really want the world to know this about you? Here at LawEd, we strive to protect YOU, and doxxing online is something everyone should be aware of, so we can avoid online harassment and stalking.
Hey all, we hope you are enjoying the summer break! Here at LawEd, we wanted to keep you up to date with all things law. Below we have our blog post about Public Order Offences and how they affect you. Have a read!
The list goes on and on, educate yourself further on how even you could potentially be breaking the law! Want to know the do’s and don’t’s while on public grounds? Luckily for you, LawEd is here to help, keep reading!
– Hang around streets with no real motive to do anything: I know you may want to hang with friends for a bit and have nowhere to go, so meeting outside shops and other buildings might seem like a good idea, however, you are more than likely getting in the way of other people that actually want to run their errands! Be mindful of others and plan to meet friends in a more private setting.
– Have one too many before the pub closes: manage your drinks on nights out appropriately! No one likes being a drunken fool when the nights over, in fact, its illegal! Grab your bag of chips and go home! This way you can escape the beer fear and a potential penalty from the guards.
– Deal with the guards in a respectful manner: The guards are there to help you and reduce the risk of crime on the streets. If you happen to come into contact with them, keep a cool head and cooperate – you will make life a lot easier for everyone involved!
– Educate yourself: Know what’s an offence and what isn’t. As a citizen, it is your duty to know how to behave in public at all times, and even if you’re breaking a law you didn’t know existed, you will still be charged! Not knowing is no excuse, so learn the law.
