Insanity: Dog in London accused of hate crime after pooping outside a home

The UK lost all common sense several years ago.

From Daily Mail: We all know it’s irritating, unsightly and unhygienic, but one case of dog fouling has been logged by police as a racist hate crime.

The incident is among numerous alleged hate crimes uncovered by The Mail on Sunday that critics say are so petty they are undeserving of police time and expense. 

Further examples in a list of more than 2,500 alleged ‘hate incidents’ logged by the Metropolitan Police in 2015 and 2016 include:

  • An envelope that had been opened and resealed;
  • An accident involving a car that bore a Remembrance poppy;
  • A disputed line call in a tennis match;
  • A dead rat found in a garden;
  • And a man telling library staff he was campaigning for Brexit.

Last night, David Davies, Tory MP and former special constable, said the recording of such ‘non-crimes’ was a waste of police time. ‘This is part of the reason that police struggle to investigate serious offences such as home burglaries,’ he said. ‘People need to start thinking more carefully before they call the police.’

The 2,507 hate incidents are revealed in a 118-page document disclosed under Freedom of Information laws.

A description of the dog fouling incident reads: ‘An unknown dog has fouled outside of victim address and victim perceived this to be a racial incident.’ 

Another canine-related case logged as an alleged hate crime says: ‘Suspect’s dog barking at victim.’

On another occasion, a supposed victim of racial abuse reported that he ‘believes a letter addressed to him was opened and then resealed before he had collected it from the Post Office’.

Several of the claims were over parking disputes or car crashes. One entry says: ‘Unknown suspect has reversed into victim’s car causing extensive damage. Victim perceives to be a hate crime as she had a poppy in front of her car.

Another man claimed that his neighbours were parking only outside his house and were ‘targeting him due to him being black’. Disputes between neighbours feature prominently. One entry says: ‘Victim on hearing her neighbours in their house has put her ear up to their door to hear what they are talking about. In a conversation they have referred to her as [redacted] and made remarks of trying to get her moved out.’

Another reads: ‘Witness has had parking issues with her next-door neighbour, their children apparently throw stones and balls over the garden fence. Witness has recently found a dead rat in garden and perceives this to be racist.

On another occasion, a resident in a block of flats reported that a neighbour was racially abusing them by ‘smoking heavily’.

Meanwhile, an angry father called police after his daughter lost a tennis match to complain the defeat was due to a racist umpire. ‘Informant feels his daughter was subjected to racial discrimination at a tennis match where line calls went against her,’ the incident log reads.

Other arguments involved unhappy customers in shops, pubs and on public transport. They include one person who felt a bus driver had given them a ‘racist look’ and a woman thrown out of a pub for being ‘drunk, aggressive and erratic’ who told police she had been targeted ‘because she is Polish’.

In a separate complaint, a pupil struggling in a swimming lesson reported his teacher for ‘faith-based abuse’ for speaking to him in an ‘abrupt manner’.

Current rules mean police have to record any allegation described as motivated by prejudice as a hate incident, even if it is insufficiently serious to be regarded as a crime. And control room staff are required to note down the details even if the informant does not want any action to be taken.

Scotland Yard has withdrawn claims it has 900 officers dedicated to investigating alleged hate crimes.

Met police chiefs were criticised for bragging about the resources during a surge in London murders. One tweet boasted: ‘We have 900+ specialist officers dedicated to investigating all hate crime.’

All references have now been removed after the force admitted that while 900 detectives working with Community Safety and Safeguarding Units in each of London’s boroughs have had hate crime training, they devote most of their time to investigating domestic abuse.

It said: ‘We found a number of tweets gave the impression 900 officers were “dedicated” to the investigation of hate crime… This information was incorrect and at the first opportunity was removed.’

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.

Student who mocked ISIS on Facebook is investigated for "Islamophobia"

islam-religion-of-peace
From The Independent: A student who mocked Isis on Facebook is being investigated over claims his post put “minority students at risk and in a state of panic and fear.”
Robbie Travers, a 21-year-old third-year law student, is being probed by the University of Edinburgh over claims he committed a “hate crime,” even though no criminal investigation by the police has taken place.
The complaint came when he shared a comment after the US Air Force dropped a massive ordnance air blast (MOAB, or “mother of all bombs”) on a network of Isis tunnels in Afghanistan in April.
Mr. Travers wrote on Facebook: “Excellent news that the US administration and Trump ordered an accurate strike on an Isis network of tunnels in Afghanistan. I’m glad we could bring these barbarians a step closer to collecting their 72 virgins”.
Esme Allman, a second-year history student, accused Mr. Travers of “blatant Islamophobia.”
In a complaint to the university seen by The Times, Ms. Allman wrote: “Not only do I believe this behaviour to be in breach of the student code of conduct, but his decision to target the BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) Liberation Group at the University of Edinburgh, and how he has chosen to do so, puts minority students at risk and in a state of panic and fear while attending the University of Edinburgh.”
But Mr. Travers said the complaint against him came in retaliation to him pointing out how Ms. Allman had allegedly referred to black men as “trash,” before adding “all men are trash.”
A spokesman for the university confirmed complains alleging misconduct against Mr. Travers were being investigated, telling the paper: “We are committed to providing an environment in which all members of the university community treat each other with dignity and respect and our code of student conduct sets out clear expectations of behaviour.”

Marine beaten, stabbed by 15-20 Blacks day after Zimmerman verdict

MarineU.S. Marine Lance Corporal Steven X.

Twentynine Palms Base is a United States Marine Corps base adjacent to the city of Twentynine Palms in San Bernardino County, southern California.

Around 2 a.m. on Sunday, July 14, 2013, mere hours after a Florida jury had delivered a verdict of “not guilty” in the trial of George Zimmerman for the second degree murder of Trayvon Martin, a “white” Marine named Steve was beaten and stabbed by a group of black males, numbering 15 to 20, in the 6000 block of Ocotillo Avenue in Twentynine Palms.

Local law enforcement has classified this vicious assault as “gang violence,” but there is every reason to call it an instance of black-on-white “hate crime.”

Why?

Aside from the racial identities of the victim (white) and his attackers (black), here’s the clincher:

The “white” Marine was accompanied by two friends, one white, one black. The white friend was assaulted first, then the thugs attacked the white Marine when he tried to help his friend. Only the black friend was spared: He was neither confronted by nor attacked by the gang of black thugs.

San_Bernardino_CountyMap of California: San Bernardino County is colored red.

Here’s an account of the attack, posted by the Marine’s step-dad on Saiga-12.com, a pay membership forum. The account is republished on The Daily Sheeple. Spelling/grammatical/typing mistakes are those of the step-dad.

On the morning of the 14th (sunday) my step son, a Lance Corporal in the United States Marine Corps , was out with two other friends off base in 29 Palms CA.  One was a Marine the other a Civillian.  Steven and the other Marine are both white, and they’re mutual friend is black.  The three men observed a large group (15-20) African American males walking down the street making a lot of noise, shouting, causing a scene.  Many were carryintg weapons, ie…batons, and at least one tire iron.

The mob notices the three men sitting on the porch smoking and talking and proceeded to make they’re way up the drive.  At this point Steven, the other Marine and they’re civilian friend told them to leave.  The mob attacked the other Marine first.  Steven, seeing his friend being assaulted attempted to intervene.  Stevens black friend also stepped in demanding they stop.  The mob ignored Stevens black friend and attacked Steven instead.  They struck him in the head with a tire iron, punched him repeatedly, kicked him repeatedly and then stabbed him in the right side of his chest.  Once they had him on the ground and unconscious they continued to beat him.  The other Marine was able to get away while Steven was eventually robbed while he lay helpless and unable to defend himself.

The police did arrive along with an ambulance to transport Steven to the Desert Palms hospital where he received multiple stitches, and staples to his chest and head.  It should be noted that the mob that attacked Steven was composed entirely of black men, 15 to 20 of them.  At no time did they attack Stevens black friend.  All this took place Sunday the 14th following the George Zimmerman verdict.

Here are a couple of side notes.  I have talked to the Sheriffs Dept. and have promised on multiple occasions to have a detective call me back.  It has not happened.  My wife was able to speak to a detective Silva who stated he didn’t see this as a hate crime.  Merely gang activity.  It was 20 black men trying to murder a white man who had done nothing to warrant the aggression.  I gave the authorities information on where my sons stolen credit cards were being used and the only response we have gotten was.  ”well, it probably is not the person or persons who committed the assault.”  I am more then a little outraged.  How is this not a hate crime? Why are they trying to sweep this under the rug?  Have we fallen so far that our Service men and women must now fear for they’re own lives on native soil and not be given the treatment and respect deserved?  I wont even go into details on the treatment he received from the hospital or how they treated my wife when she called to ask about the condition of her son.  If i get any more info guys i will let you know.  I hope this helps.  Spread the word.  It appears that whites can not be victims of hate crimes only commit them.

The “Law Enforcement” is this instance is the San Bernardino Sheriffs Dept.

Steven’s step-dad then followed his account with this update:

Here is an update on my son.  After being beaten with a tire iron by a mob of 15 plus black men, stabbed in the chest and kicked unconscious and robbed, the police have absolutely no leads.  Even though his credit/debit card along with his wallet was stolen and is being used at local stores the “detectives” still have nothing.  Zero, zilch and are not returning my or my wife’s calls what so ever.  To say I’m disappointed is an understatement.  i suspect my family will get little or no justice since our son was not a minority.  This fits the criteria for attempted murder along with a hate crime.  This is not in any way acceptable.  The local sheriffs department for 29 palms is not even cooperating with the 29 Palms Provost Marshals Office.

…….

a new update. the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department did not collect any evidence at the scene of the crime. they did not take any photos or take his blood soaked clothing at the hospital. the detective in charge of the case said to my son that unless they solve this case in the next few days it would probably go unsolved. due to the fact that he was going on a month long vacation. We are filing multiple complaints.

Two days after the vicious attack, on July 16, 2013, a local radio station KCDZ 107.7 FM reported that police arrested one man in “a brawl” in Twentynine Palms early Sunday shortly before 2 a.m., in which “an unidentified Marine was seriously injured when he was hit with a tire iron and then possibly stabbed.” The wounded Marine was taken to Desert Hospital in Palm Springs.

The “fight” or “brawl” took place in the 6000 block of Ocotillo Avenue, and involved 20 to 30 people.

“During the course of the investigation, Melvin Peters, 23, of Twentynine Palms was arrested on multiple warrants out of Orange County and for resisting arrest and being drunk and disorderly. According to Sheriff Sergeant James Porter, the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected.”

White Teen Set on Fire in Racial Attack; Media Silent (sort of)


The New American reports: “This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.” So spewed the attackers of Melissa Coon’s 13-year-old son, as they doused him with gasoline and set him alight.  Police, they say, are “investigating” whether this is a hate crime.
The attack on the boy took place on the east side of Kansas City, Missouri. Fox 4 Kansas City provides some (sanitized) details, writing, “The victim is a student at East High School and regularly walks home after class. When he reached his porch, two older teens grabbed him, pinned his arms behind his back and then poured gas from a gas can on the boy. They then set the boy on fire.”
Thankfully, the teen victim had the presence of mind to pull his shirt up over his head and snuff out the flames. He was treated at Children’s Mercy hospital, having suffered first-degree burns to his face and head. And police said they were concerned about possible damage to his eyes and lungs.
The concern, however, isn’t translating into national media coverage — or honest coverage anywhere.
Of course, if you scrutinize the few local outlets reporting the story and cut and paste, you can piece the picture together. The Fox article excerpted above provides only the vaguest hint of the attack’s racial nature by quoting Mrs. Coon as saying that her family was told “it’s a hate crime.” KCTV 5 did a bit better, reporting that the victim was white and the assailants black; however, while they quoted the attackers as stating “This is what you get,” for some reason they omitted the “white boy” part. Then there was KMBC.com, which presented the latter but neglected to explicitly identify the race of the criminals, leaving the reader to wonder if the attackers were self-hating Norwegian immigrants.
Read the rest of the article here.
The media, in their desire to be so PC, purposely leave out the facts/details of stories.  But would you expect anything less?  If Muslims had set this boy on fire, they probably would have changed their names to protect the “innocent until proven guilty”.

A crime is a crime, right? Why is a special definition needed?

Lawyer: Lesbians’ assault on gay man can’t be hate crime

Boston HeraldThree women identified by their lawyers as lesbians were arraigned Friday on a hate crime charge for allegedly beating a gay man at the Forest Hills T station in an unusual case that experts say exposes the law’s flawed logic.
“My guess is that no sane jury would convict them under those circumstances, but what this really demonstrates is the idiocy of the hate-crime legislation,” said civil liberties lawyer Harvey Silverglate. “If you beat someone up, you’re guilty of assault and battery of a human being. Period. The idea of trying to break down human beings into categories is doomed to failure.
Prosecutors and the ACLU of Massachusetts said no matter the defendants’ sexual orientation, they can still face the crime of assault and battery with intent to intimidate, which carries up to a 10-year prison sentence, by using hateful language.  “Someone who is Jewish can be anti-Semitic,” said ACLU staff attorney Sarah Wunsch. “The mere fact that someone is a member of the same class doesn’t mean they could not be motivated by hatred for their very own group.”

Erika Stroud


But Carolyn Euell, 38, mother of two of the defendants, Erika Stroud, 21, of Dorchester and Felicia Stroud, 18, West Roxbury, told reporters the alleged attack “can’t be hateful” because both her daughters are lesbians.
Prosecutor Lindsey Weinstein said the two sisters and one of their domestic partners, Lydia Sanford, also a defendant, viciously beat the man Sunday, repeatedly punching and kicking him after he bumped them with his backpack on a stairwell.

Felicia Stroud


She said the victim, who suffered a broken nose, told cops he believed the attack was “motivated as a crime because of his sexual orientation” since the three women “called him insulting homophobic slurs.”
But attorney Helene Tomlinson, who represented Sanford, told the judge her client is “openly identified as a lesbian … so any homophobic (conduct) is unwarranted.” She said the alleged victim was the aggressor and used racial slurs: “He provoked them.
Felicia Stroud’s attorney, C. Harold Krasnow, said, “They don’t know what his sexual orientation is, just like he doesn’t know what theirs is.”  Krasnow later noted the low bail the judge gave the women, $100 to $500 cash, and suggested the prosecution’s case was weak.
Civil-rights attorney Chester Darling agreed. “No one should go to court. It’s knuckle justice,” he said. “It’s a fair exchange.”
But Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, said prosecutors will have no problem proving the women committed a hate crime, even if they are lesbians.  “The defendants’ particular orientation or alleged orientations have no bearing on our ability to prosecute for allegedly targeting a person who they believe to be different from them,” he said.
Why the need for a special definition of crime?  Isn’t the intent the same – to harm someone or commit an illegal act?  How can you really know the true intent of a crime anyway? Is it really that important to determine their specific motivation (they dislike gay people)?
Crime: An act committed or omitted in violation of a law forbidding or commanding it and for which punishment is imposed upon conviction.
Hate Crime: One that involves threats, harassment, or physical harm and is motivated by prejudice against someone’s race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation or physical or mental disability.
And the mother argues that since her daughters are gay and attacked a gay person this can’t be a hate crime?  Let’s just call it what it is – a crime.  Period.
I understand there are different terms applied to murder and other crimes.  Yet for an assault, isn’t it just enough that you beat someone and call it a crime? If any law expert can provide more insight into this, please feel free to comment.

Obama and the Left Silent On Vicious Racial Assault in McDonald's


Last week, on April 22, two female customers brutally assaulted another customer in a McDonald’s fast food restaurant in Baltimore County, Maryland. The attackers are black. The victim, 22-year-old Chrissy Polis, is white and reportedly a transgender.
McDonald’s employees stood by, doing nothing. Worse still, the video was shot by an employee who can be heard laughing.
Eventually, a good Samaritan stepped in to stop the attack. But the vicious attackers punched her too. Vicki Thoms, 55, told 11 News:

“I think it’s terrible. I think it’s inhumane. When they started really hurting her, to the point where I thought she was going to die, that’s when I decided someone needed to do something. I kept screaming, ‘Stop. Get off of her.’ And they wouldn’t stop. One of the girls said to me, ‘It’s none of your (expletive) business,’ and hit me in the face.”

One of the attackers, 18-year-old Teonna Monae Brown, has been charged with first degree assault and second degree assault. Her co-attacker, 14, is being charged as a juvenile.
Prosecutors said they are “considering” possible hate crime charges “based on sexual orientation.” It’s never a “hate crime” if blacks assault non-blacks! — as the ethnic Chinese community in Oakland, California know only too well. A year ago, two black teenagers brutally attacked and killed a middle-aged Chinese immigrant man, Tian Sheng Yu, at 18th St. and Telegraph Avenue.
Here’s Victor Davis Hanson’s comment:

“The past week a sensationalized video of a transgendered female in extremis went viral on the blogosphere. Two young African-American women beat her senseless at a McDonald’s restaurant. The African-American staff is shown in the clip as mostly passive bystanders to the brutality. Yet I know this nationally viewed abhorrence is not a teachable moment about much of anything. Unlike the Professor Gates mix-up, this public spectacle will not be used by the president to warn us about the wages of incivility or the need for a new racial tolerance and understanding. Nor will there be, among the homosexual community, much of a national Matthew Shepard moment seeking to present the public beating as a symbol of a wider hatred of the sexually ambiguous among us. There is about as much chance of a Hollywood movie about the incident as there is of a sequel to Rendition. At best, we are to accept such violence as inevitable, as the powerless sometimes thrash out against the more privileged classes and races; at worst, these are the tragic wages of prior oppression that must be contextualized and constructed in the proper narrative of the centuries.”
