The convicted employee’s lawyer argued that Facebook post was just “ill-advised” satire, but magistrate decided it was “reckless and irresponsible” and gave the man 2-year good behavior bond.
Nicholas Rabone Hogan, 32, a video editor at the Australian Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) drunkenly posted a threat to murder police in the name of Allah to Facebook and ended up with a 2-year good behavior bond in a Sydney court.
A few weeks ago, Hogan posted the abovementioned threat to Facebook – just a few hours after the funeral of the murdered NSW police accountant Curtis Cheng, according to Newtown local court. The Facebook user’s defense lawyer tried to convince the court that the publication in question was simply “ill-advised” satire and that Hogan dabbled in comedy. However, but the magistrate responded that the offence was serious, imposed the bond and recorded a conviction. Nicholas Rabone Hogan also explained that “this was not intended in any seriousness”, but the magistrate didn’t change its mind.
During the court hearing, it was revealed that the defendant had 10 pints before posting the following words: “I’m going to kill a police officer this morning in the name of Allah.” After he published this threat on his publicly accessible Facebook page, 5 police swarmed on his home and ten officers went in to arrest him. The SBS employee admitted to the post right away and pleaded guilty to using a carriage service to menace, harass or offend. The court, when sentencing Nicholas Rabone Hogan, criticized his purported satire as “reckless and irresponsible”, while both the employee and the company refused to comment on the case.
