PC in Britain: Police Often Take the Side of Lawbreakers

DBKP UK PC Roundup

Britain As Hell

Time once again for the DBKP United Kingdom weekly round up, where we explore the zany world of Political Correctness as a way of life.

The British started the week with the Police intimidating another elderly victim. it seems hardly a day can go by without the coppers deciding that criminals are far too dangerous for them, but slapping down the law abiding--and basically defenseless geriatrics--is just too much fun to pass on.

Grandmother arrested on race charges after telling rowdy Asian students to 'go home'

Now I know what you are thinking. Blurting out "Go home!" to a bunch of drunken Muslim thugs (The Koran apparently has multiple interpretations regarding drinking, but only Muslims are allowed to know what, when and how they apply) is criminally racist speech.

Or so the Police thought. The Crime:

After being woken for the third time in one night by a group of drunken and noisy students, Jo Calvert-Mindell was at her wits' end.

The former policewoman got dressed, went outside and shouted at them: 'Why can't you go back to where you come from and make some noise there? I bet your families and neighbours wouldn't put up with it.

She also reported the incident to police, who came and dispersed the eight students.

The 51-year-old grandmother was astonished when four months later she was arrested and accused of being a racist. It turned out that two Asians in the group had complained to the police

In April, Miss Calvert-Mindell, who has never been in trouble with the police before, was charged with using racially aggravated threatening words or behaviour under section 5 of the Public Order Act.

That is right. She wasn't telling them to go back to Pakistan. Just to go home.

But because they were Muslims ("Asian" in Brit PoliCeSpeak), she faced charges. It is important for all to know that freedom of speech is non-existent in Britain, and free thought is is disappearing, as well.

Speaking of Muslims:
Police told to warn criminals before setting canines on them - in case they are FRIGHTENED or ALLERGIC to dog hair

First, a little primer on British PoliCeSpeak. When the Brits talk about Muslims, the only time the word is used is in a positive reference. When it comes to the day-to-day anti-social, Sudden Muslim Grievance Syndrome, terrorism , misogyny, and intolerance that makes this 'religion' such a barrel of laughs, the Brits seem unable to utter the word "Muslim".

From the story:

Being chased by a police dog was never intended to be a pleasant experience.But now handlers are being extra careful to avoid upsetting criminals' sensibilities by giving them advance warning before dogs are set on them. Forces across Britain are being instructed to 'avoid offending' sufferers of cynophobia - the clinical name for a fear of canines - or those allergic to dog hair.The move comes amid fears that suspects whose medical conditions are triggered by dogs may file costly compensation bills against the force which authorised their use during arrests or raids on homes.

So how do we know this is about Muslims, and not the ordinary drug runner or crazy murderer on the run?

Because on July 6, 2008 the British police announced that police dogs would wear shoes when entering Muslim homes.

From Times On Line:

Police sniffer dogs will have to wear bootees when searching the homes of Muslims so as not to cause offence. Where Muslims object, officers will be obliged to use sniffer dogs only in exceptional cases. Where dogs are used, they will have to wear bootees with rubber soles. “We are trying to ensure that police forces are aware of sensitivities that people can have with the dogs to make sure they are not going against any religious or cultural element within people’s homes. It is being addressed and forces are working towards doing it,” Acpo said

But that bit of ass kissing was not good enough. So this week the Brits stooped lower.

Photographing thugs 'is assault', police tell householder snapping proof of anti-social behaviour

A householder who took photographs of hooded teenagers as evidence of their anti-social behaviour says he was told he was breaking the law after they called the police. David Green, 64, and his neighbours had been plagued by the youths from a nearby comprehensive school for months, and was advised by their headmaster to identify them so action could be taken. The youths were aged around 17; he said one threatened to kill him while another called the police on his mobile. And he claimed that a Police Community Support Officer sent to the scene promptly issued a warning that taking pictures of youths without permission was illegal, and could lead to a charge of assault.

Typical yobs

One of Mr Green's pictures shows two hooded teenagers, one making an obscene gesture towards the camera.

What about the thugs that were terrorizing and vandalizing the neighborhood? Don't ask. You could be arrested for anti-social thought. And the story helpfully points out that Mr Green's excessive use of the camera is not an isolated incident.

Last week, the Daily Mail reported that a father was told by a play equipment supervisor he was not allowed to take pictures of his own children on a slide.

British Police are sometimes willing to give a hand.

Police 'put half-naked rape victim in minicab and made her pay fare home'

Police allegedly marched a rape victim who had been found crying in the street at 1am to a cab firm, and then made her pay the fare home....instead of driving her to a hospital or a police station, the officers took her to a taxi firm close to Southwark Tube station. After it was found no one could collect her, the taxi firm agreed to take her home. The woman reported the incident, which took place on 4 July, the next day but investigators fear important forensic evidence may have been lost. A senior source said: 'It should have been clear that she may have been sexually assaulted. To top it off, they put her in a cab with another strange man.' Police think the woman may have been raped by an unlicensed taxi driver who dumped her in the street.

That story needs no comment.

It says everything one need know about British Police.
