Didn’t Anton Casey commit sedition?

In “Act against threats to Casey family” (Jan 27), the writer stated that Mr Anton Casey did not commit a crime.

Under the Sedition Act, any action or words that raise discontent or disaffection among citizens or residents, or that promote feelings of ill will and hostility between different races or classes of the population, have a seditious tendency.

Would Mr Casey’s behaviour not be enough to bring him to court? He has been living here for 12 years and should have known what was within his rights. His remarks, which looked down on average earners as being poor, were unacceptable.

If the authorities were generous, they could just revoke his permanent residency without charging him, to deter others from making such remarks.
