UK Teenager fined for shouting ‘is it a boy or is it a girl?’ at transgender police community support officer

If you are going to be a police officer, you need pretty thick skin. “Live PD” is proof of that. Alas, the UK has turned into a modern day “1984.”

From Yahoo: A teenager has been fined for abusing a transgender police community support officer by yelling: “Is it a boy or is it a girl?”

Declan Armstrong, 19, was ordered to pay £590 at Mold Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday after he was found guilty of making the comments following a trial.

PCSO Conner Freel

Rhian Jackson, prosecuting, said PCSO Connor Freel had been in uniform on foot patrol in Mold, north Wales, in October 2019 when he passed Armstrong, who was with a friend.

She told the court that Armstrong shouted “very loudly, “is it a boy or is it a girl?” and said that when Mr. Freel looked over, Armstrong made the comment loudly again.

Ms. Jackson said: “Due to his transgender, when Connor heard Declan say what he said, it left him feeling upset and embarrassed.”

She read out a statement from Mr. Freel, who was born female and transitioned, which went over his work to raise awareness of transphobic hate crime, including being part of a victim support campaign and television interviews.

He said he knew there could be repercussions by being in the public eye but had wanted to show vulnerable people that being transgender is not something to be hidden. However, he said that after this incident he was reluctant to patrol alone.

“To have something shouted at him that had such personal connotations whilst he was on his own in the middle of a public place, that was rather busy due to market day footfall, did leave him vulnerable, distressed and embarrassed,” Ms. Jackson said.

Armstrong, of Victory Court, Mold, was convicted of a public order offence after a trial but has continued to deny he made the comments, and his defence lawyer Gary Harvey said he “doesn’t hold any prejudice against anyone in society”.

The court was told that Armstrong is a carer for a man he considers his father, was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and suffered from anxiety and depression.

Armstrong has also been given a 12-week curfew besides the £590 he has been ordered to pay.

It will get just as bad here if allowed to. A man in Iowa who was convicted of sexually abusing at least 15 children between the ages of one and 13, will be set free because he now identifies as being a woman, and is no longer considered to be a threat.

Oh yes, Iowa, home of “The Franklin Coverup”. Loads of Satanism going on in those fields.

If the gender-ambiguous snowflake police officer Connor Freel feels “abused” by a teen yelling “Is it a boy or is it a girl?,” then it has no business being a police officer.

How fitting that this miscarriage of justice should take place in a town called Mold. This insanity is spreading. Biden recently announced that “transgender rights” is the civil rights issue of our time. Since when? The only people who care about this are a tiny, tiny minority of mentally ill misfits. No such thing as transgender therefore no such thing as transgender rights. I have to keep repeating that like saying, it’s only a dream. Only it isn’t

Comparing this to dialog between two police officers on an episode of Miami Vice, “You roll some fruit for that shirt, or what? [All Laughing.] As a matter of fact, Stan, your old lady gave me this shirt, and it wasn’t my birthday.”
We’ve come a long way since 1984…

One would think that the embarrassment, along with all the other “repercussions” these perverts are so dreadful of would be enough to persuade them of the error of their delusions.

My 4 year old daughter, in Arbys in Springerville, Arizona 1994-ish: “Look, Daddy! That boy has long hair like a girl!!”

Imagine if she said that today?

1984 was required reading for me in school.

I wonder if it is still required reading, or if it’s been buried since it’s a little too on-the-nose.

Any teachers out there that know?

Animal Farm, 1984, and The Outsiders were the memorable required reading for me. Also the short story The Lottery. (required reading in Canada anyways- I think USA might have different required reading, like To Kill a Mockingbird?)

!984 was required when I was in HS. It was very influential for me. We were told that it depicted Nazi Germany but Orwell was really writing about the Soviet Union and communism. Don’t know if it still is required. Probably not. Here in MA it’s probably some transgender/fluidity crap. And holocaust prop, the Diary of Anne Frank, most of which was written by her father

Yeah, the Diary of Frank Ann. The Holohoax is sort of dull, so that would make excellent forced reading/propaganda for the kiddies trapped in public school hell.

Cursive was part of the curriculum when I was in grade school. We were graded on penmanship. My handwriting was less than excellent which prevented me from getting straight A’s. If not for those C’s in penmanship I could have been somebody. It wasn’t fair! But progressive “education” has fixed that. Now everybody gets a trophy. Educators in those unenlightened times didn’t understand that “penmanship” was inherently sexist, racist, transphobic, and only reinforced the toxic white male patriarchy. We’ve come a long way

Cursive writing is racist!

We read Animal Farm, but none of the other greats by George Orwell (Eric Blair). Mostly the boring ones like Catcher in the Rye (yawn) and Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner by tooter Sammy Coleridge.

This is such insanity, it seems impossible that it’s real. How can a police offer become paralyzed by fear from a person SAYING SOMETHING he doesn’t like? And how can anyone take such people seriously? They aren’t fit to be among normal society and normal society doesn’t deserve such punishment.

Make a wrong, well-meaning comment to one of them, and they act like WE ARE the one’s confused.

Hey, this Tranny should be the “thought police” instead. That’s also a very steep fine….
