Woman who called transgender woman 'pig in wig' in tweets is convicted - www.dailymail.co.uk

Excerpts from article:

...A mother-of-two who called a transgender woman a 'pig in a wig' has been convicted of sending offensive tweets as protestors assembled outside court.

...Whereas Mr Miller celebrated on the steps of the High Court today, Ms Scottow was found guilty of sending offensive tweets.

...A former officer's 'transphobic' tweets were lawful and police breached his right to freedom of expression by behaving like 'the Stasi' when they turned up at his work to brand it a 'hate incident', a judge has ruled.

...Announcing the court's decision, Mr Justice Julian Knowles said Mr Miller's tweets were 'lawful' and that the effect of the police turning up at Mr Miller's place of work 'because of his political opinions must not be underestimated'.

...The court heard how Ms Scottow, in her police interview, admitted to being 'immature' to Ms Hayden, and knew that her tweets would 'get to Stephanie'.
