Wolf whistling and sexist remarks could become hate crimes in London

Seems to be the new PC norm for Europe.

From Evening Standard: The Metropolitan Police today (Thursday, 12/7) revealed it is speaking with other UK forces to assess whether it is worth cracking down on gender-based hate crimes after a pilot scheme was launched in the East Midlands last year.

The trial, led by Nottinghamshire Police, saw sexist incidents like street harassment, verbal abuse and taking photos without consent recorded as hate crimes, carrying tougher penalties for offenders.

Police chiefs are now considering rolling out the idea elsewhere in the UK, suggesting a harsher stance on everyday sexism could stop it escalating into sexual harassment or assault. Police believe halting misogynistic remarks could go towards lowering serious sexual violence crimes overall.

A Scotland Yard spokesman told the Standard: “We have been speaking to other forces about their experiences of the practicalities of recording gender based hate crime and will use this, along with feedback from our partners, to inform any future changes to MPS policy.”

Earlier this week the National Police Chiefs Council’ head of hate crime told the Commons’ women and equalities committee that the current policing debate surrounds whether to take action on sexism earlier on.

Assistant chief constable Mark Hamilton told MPs: “Issues such as on street behaviour that people feel should be accepted as part of the interaction of daily life actually has a detrimental and damaging impact.

“Sexual harassment of a woman or a girl at a bus stop by a male might be some things that some women feel they are just going to have to accept, that no one’s going to do anything about it.

“The debate in policing now is moving much more to identify those issues in the same way as we would other types of incident or crime, establishing if a crime has been committed or not.  But even if a crime hasn’t been committed the debate now is similar to hate crime incidents. 

Should we be taking action of some variety to address the behaviour before it escalates into a crime and also most importantly to try and restore some confidence to the victim and make them feel that what happened to them is being addressed somewhere.”

Dozens of women reported misogynistic crimes to Nottingham Police in the first few months of the pilot scheme, the force said. Sexist offences were reported at a similar rate to other hate crimes.

A hate crime is considered to be any incident where someone is targeted because of their identity – whether it be race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or an alternative sub-culture like being a goth.

It can take any shape and is not always illegal behaviour, officers say.

  1. And to think of all women do to enhance their bodies with makeup and surgeries, and on to skirts almost showing their butt and tops that cover just the nipples, neckline down to the waist just to get lookers. This is a joke, right?!

  2. Screaming “Allah Ackbar!” and Sura 9:5 around “infidels” is still just “embracing their faith” and no hate crime for a certain group, however.

  3. Not only are, – “The California Girls Learning Early” = on how to Open $Big $Buck financial doors with just a smile,” = “butt” all across America, – they tease & tease & tease until they get a “hit” = then complain-complain-complain till Hooker Lawyer Aldridge entices them to “bust” it wide open & make-a-case” = even 35 years later.. The Claimant’s law should state – “Sex or Harassment” claims must be filed within 90 days or be barred.. Time we all get “behind” laws of proper etiquette & conduct, and then stay “abreast” of these Laws & Regs. = lest we men become victims for being a normal Male creature..

  4. Pretty soon, any interaction between male and female will be a crime, unless you have a written contract. Way to eliminate all mystery between the sexes. Men will be accused of “hate crimes” for daring to approach a women. Any guesses how that will end?

    What stupidity! Meanwhile the horrors of Rotherham and the sex abuse of underage girls by Muzzies was covered up for years by the British authorities.

  9. This is lunacy, driven by globalist feminazis and beta males. They are all programmed and mentally deranged. Human relationships and natural procreation is being hit from all directions. The goal of all is to defy nature and achieve a much reduced world population of compliant zombies, where traditional love and families are extinct.

    Many young people’s relationships are in cyber space only, this conditioning has been ramped up in the last ten years. We are being subjected to genome altering substances in everyday life. More and more “lifelike” robots and AI home companions are being introduced to satisfy sexual and companionship needs. Male sperm counts in developed nations are seeing a drastic decrease. This is all very bad news for the human species. We read that 40% of young people polled would be willing to date a robot. Terrifying.
    William Wordsworth, 1770 – 1850
    The world is too much with us; late and soon,
    Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;
    Little we see in Nature that is ours;
    We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
    This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
    The winds that will be howling at all hours,
    And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers,
    For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
    It moves us not.—Great God! I’d rather be
    A pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
    So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
    Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
    Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
    Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn.
