Husband/Wife Admit Posting Videos Praising Murder of Lee Rigby

I've actually seen a bunch of people praising the murder of Lee Rigby. He was in the British equivalent of the National Guard so they claim it wasn't murder, just an act of legitimate warfare. This pair's mistake? They made a series of YouTube videos about it and in the UK that is a no-no: no First Amendment:

British Muslim who was friends with one of Fusilier Lee Rigby's murderers has admitted posting sickening videos on YouTube glorifying the brutal killing.

Royal Barnes, 23, from Hackney in east London, and his wife Rebekah Dawson, 22, recorded and uploaded three videos shortly after Drummer Rigby's shocking murder in Woolwich in May 2013.

In one seven-minute video, Barnes hailed the murder as a "brilliant day", while in another posted under his account Musa Real Talks he mocked the outpouring of public grief....

He pleaded guilty to three counts of disseminating a terrorist publication and one of inciting murder during a hearing at the Old Bailey.

His wife, who had insisted on wearing her veil in court, had already admitted disseminating a terrorist publication at a previous hearing and is awaiting sentence.

I'm sure that his stance on murdering soldiers will go over well in Belmarish prison. Let's hope his cell mate "Bubba" is a veteran.
