In Soviet Russia, Computer Blogs You!

Apparently, this guy is a real Yakov:

Russian blogger Savva Terentyev is being charged for inciting hatred toward the authorities for a post that, among other things, labeled the police "uneducated representatives of the animal world."

Terentyev said Wednesday that the charges were a result of a February 2007 posting in which he chastised local authorities for raiding an opposition newspaper.

"They're trash - and those that become cops are simply trash, dumb, uneducated representatives of the animal world," Terentyev wrote. "It would be good if in the center of every town in Russia ... an oven was built, like at Auschwitz, in which ceremonially, every day, and better yet, twice a day ... the infidel cops were burnt. This would be the first step toward cleaning society of these cop-hoodlum scum." (H/T - Wired)

Oh please. The only difference between Terentyev's comments and the comments of dozens of Philadelphia thugs is correct grammar usage. Hell, people write worse things about me in the comments section!

Look, the comments were stupid and insensitive, but what is the point of arresting this moron? The only thing that will be achieved is Terentyev's elevation to cult hero status. Then, when he cannot even go to the store to buy a pack of cigarettes without being mobbed by legions of fans, he'll have to call the police to safely escort him home.

Ironic, huh?
