Christmas in Jail Because of My Potty Mouth

A British woman will spend Christmas behind bars after a racially charged attack on a nightclub bouncer. Widely shared video footage showed 25-year-old Sharna Walker of Worcester being kicked out of The Figure of Eight bar in Birmingham, England, back on May 22. West Midlands Police said she upended furniture before kicking a glass door, which shattered. , she was also seen pushing and spitting at doorman Tristan Price, who hurled racist language at least 10 times, according to police, who said she also used an offensive term for disabled people to refer to Price and his colleagues. District Judge John Bristow's take was: "This truly shocking language has no place in the UK, and any right-thinking member of the community would be utterly repelled by it." He sentenced Walker to serve 14 weeks in jail and pay the equivalent of $662 in compensation to Price. Walker reportedly burst into tears as guards applied handcuffs to her wrists and took her away.
