John Terry is racist again or something

John Terry has been fined £220,000 and banned for four games for being racist, in that incident he was found not-guilty of recently.


I don't really understand why he's on trial again because I was pretty sure this thing ended in controversy a few weeks ago but then again I've been on a different continent for most of this month so I have an excuse for not knowing, as opposed to normal times when I just don't pay attention to what I'm reading or being told.  From the BBC:
"The Football Association charged Mr Terry on Friday 27 July 2012 with using abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards Queens Park Rangers' Anton Ferdinand and which included a reference to colour and/or race contrary to FA Rule E3 [2] in relation to the Queens Park Rangers FC versus Chelsea FC fixture at Loftus Road on 23 October 2011."
So let me get this straight - even though a jury finds you not guilty, if you committed the alleged crime in football land it's totally justified for you to be trialled again and again until they get the prosecution get the result they want?  Jeez.  This is like real court for black people.  Which is either ironic or racist.  I can never tell
