Children as young as 13 may now be hauled off to prison if found guilty of committing a ‘microaggression’, following the introduction of a new anti-bullying law in Canada.

According to the new law, any action deemed to be a “microaggression” will carry a minimum penalty of 50 hours community service, and a maximum penalty of 3 months prison time.

A “microaggression”, in the context of the new law, is defined as ‘any act of aggression that can make somebody feel uncomfortable, offended, bullied, or victimized.’

Whereas in the past a person had to cause actual physical harm (or worse) to find themselves in a prison cell, now, simply saying the wrong thing to the wrong person could see you incarcerated for up to 3 months.

Understandably, there has been a lot of resistance to the new law.

“This is absolutely ridiculous, hasn’t anyone ever heard of free speech? You can’t just go around arresting people for saying something offensive, this isn’t flippin Nazi Germany,” a young man screamed at a camera crew reporting on the topic.

The young mans rant went viral and attracted thousands of comments from self proclaimed ‘Social Justice Warriors’ telling the man to “kill himself” and that he was “a bigoted cry-baby”.

One commenter had this to say: “I just reported your punk ass to the Police. This is exactly the kind of stuff the new law has made illegal. Saying ‘Nazi Germany’ is incredibly insensitive to Jewish people, and quite frankly I think you should be sent to prison.”

Unleashed Reality reached out to local Police to see if a report had been filed against the man, and as it turns out, he is already in police custody and awaiting a trial.

A guilty verdict is to be expected.
