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.
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.”
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.
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.”

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.

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”.
Boston Herald: Three 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.”
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.”
