I could threaten to smash a famous celebrities head in on twitter and would most likely get a prison sentence if identified and caught, no matter what i said or did i wouldn't be able to get out of the time for the crime if found guilty.
I could actually smash someone's head in who i do know, and as long as i said the right things not receive any sort of punishment in the form of prison .

'You used a weapon - your foot - we believe it deserves a custodial sentence but you have been shown leniency because you have shown remorse and it was an isolated incident and you have previous good character.'
