Man faces hate crime charge in Scotland over dog’s ‘Nazi salute’

A man has been arrested over an online video that reportedly shows a dog making a Nazi salute.

The 28-year-old, from Coatbridge in North Lanarkshire, faces hate crime charges over the video, Police Scotland said.  

The clip allegedly shows a pug sitting in front of a screen showing footage of Adolf Hitler and appearing to make Nazi salutes.

Officers said the video had been shared online and “caused offence and hurt to many people in our community”.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “A 28-year-old man was arrested on Thursday 28 April in relation to the alleged publication of offensive material online (improper use of electronic communications under the Communications Act 2003).

“A report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.”

DI David Cockburn said: “Posting offensive material online or in any other capacity will not be tolerated and police will act swiftly to tackle hate crimes that are motivated by malice or ill-will because of faith, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability.

“This clip has been shared and viewed online, which ultimately has caused offence and hurt to many people in our community. There is no place for hate crime in Scotland and police take all reports of incidents seriously.”

  1. “There is no place for hate crime in Scotland… unless you’re a jew.”

    Holohoax aside, what about the app. 11 million Germans that were murdered by the allies and the stinking Bolshevik jews AFTER the war was over?

    That constitutes a hate crime in my book.

  2. Poor guy. Charged with a crime, created by a law that asswipe politicians pass when pressured to do so.

    Gotta change things folks. Who’s next to be arrested…..and for what?

  3. OMG, feelings were hurt. I better erase the video I made of my German Shepard dancing to Van Morrison’s ‘brown eyed girl’ someone may be offended.

    I’m offended that there were dancing Israelies cheering on the destruction of the twin towers on 9-11, where can I lodge a complaint? Oh wait….

    1. I had wanted to go to Scotland and ride the whisky trail, I am afraid they just shattered my dream, I will not be visiting Scotland or any part of that God – forsaken area known as Europe. What a bunch of fruitcake pansies.

  4. Those hypocrites try to act like they’re trying to create some kind of utopia in which no one is allowed to offend anyone else (as if it were possible to do so). But the truth is that they only have a problem with the “wrong” people being offended. Their efforts to impose Orwellian speech control are nothing more than their way of pushing a specific social agenda. Speech they agree with is considered legitimate “free speech,” while speech they disagree with is considered criminal.

    May all who wish to control the speech of others end up in ditches!

  5. OMG, Scotland too. What’s this world coming to? Oh, that’s right, a one world utopia.

    People of earth, UNLEASH!

    YOUR life matters.

  6. Oh how the British people wish that the Germans would have prevailed against the Communist Jews and their own ZOG government now.
