Here is an interesting thread.

We know that the EDL are made up of violent thugs and career criminals and that some of it’s followers collected convictions like others would collect stamps.

Here we have a thread taken from Facebook where several members of the EDL brag about how easy community service is.

Mark Carlton who made the initial post is in reality Mark Johnson from Thurstonland,Huddersfield and is a known Huddersfield Town Football hooligan.

He recieved a 12 month suspended sentence and 200 hours community service after he led a gang of 9 EDL yobs in a violent attack at an anti-racism concert in Leeds last year.

A man who was at the event with his son was hit in the mouth with a missile thrown by a gang member and had a tooth knocked out.

Also on the thread are Jonathan Foy and Joe Harman, both from Leeds who were also convicted at the same time as Mark Johnson.
