15 Yr Old Arrested For Burning Koran, No One Arrested For Burning These Bibles

BBC reports a 15 year-old girl was arrested for burning a Koran and posting the video on Facebook. Charges were "suspicion of inciting religious hatred."

Yet searching to see if any arrests have been made for people that burn bibles, the search engine brings nothing of arrests made although there are plenty of results for bible burning.

The 15-year-old, who lives in the West Midlands, allegedly posted the video, filmed two weeks ago on her school premises, on Facebook.

The video was reported to the school and subsequently removed, police said.

Yet a quick look for videos of bible burning brought up the one below, and yet I see nothing of an arrest for inciting religious hatred for burning not one but two bibles and posting the video.

So, it is alright for the man above in the video to burn bibles but a 15 year-old girl gets arrested for burning the Koran?

Anyone else see a problem with this picture? Other than it being the UK?

Personally I don't think anyone should be burning any religious item, it is disrespectful, but it should not be a crime.

PS- The photo at the top of the story was found using Google search for images and the video used is from a Youtube search and I posted both because to make my point about the arrests I had to show the video which shows bibles burning and if I am going to offend, I am going to offend equally.
