Geert Wilders acquitted of "hate" speech

Good news on the free speech front:
... The presiding judge said Mr. Wilders’ remarks were sometimes “hurtful”, “shocking” or “offensive”, but that they were made in the context of a public debate about Muslim integration and multiculturalism, and therefore not a criminal act.... [duh!]
The real question remains - why was he charged in the first place?
