‘It is as if they wanted to protect the travellers.’

Yes, it is, isn’t it?

Despite giving mobile phone footage of the fracas to police, Mrs Boland was charged alongside her attacker.

Officers accused the shocked farm owner of fighting back when she should have ‘walked away’.

Walked away and expected the police to act, as they should do? Don’t make me laugh!

And since when were you not allowed self-defence? Even in the People’s Republic of Jockland, they don’t go that far!

She had to wait eight months before the charge was dismissed by magistrates.

The traveller was convicted, and compensation ordered. Will it be paid? Who knows?

Dirty nappies were thrown over her gate, the windows smashed on her horsebox and threats made to ‘kill and eat’ her animals.

The Taiwanese-born mother of three, who came to the UK in 1979, said she had also been subjected to racist abuse, including ‘slant-eyed gestures’.

She was also pressured to sell land to the permanent traveller site next door.

She said one man warned her: ‘If you don’t sell me a piece of your land I will just call in the caravans.’Another allegedly told her: ‘Everyone in England knows you don’t cross gipsies’.

I guess the police didn’t act on the racist abuse because they could claim there was no proof?

As her son told the group to get off their land, a traveller is heard shouting, ‘Chinese pigs’ and ‘Get the f*** out of my country.’

Oh.

Suffolk police said: ‘All allegations of this nature reported to police are proportionately investigated and charging decisions are made based on the evidence gathered.’

One party is continually harrassed, and then attacked. You charge the attackers and the victim. There’s evidence of racist abuse. You ignored it.

‘Proportionality’ and ‘evidence’. You keep using those words. I don’t think they mean what you think they mean.

    The police in our country are out of control of those who pay their wages. I wonder if it is possible to bring charges against the Chief Police Officer for failing to protect people? The ordinary police are getting their orders from somewhere or are they now employing people of low IQ, with a thuggish mentality and a dislike of normal people?

      I just had a go on Twitter at Thames Valley police – they wrote:

      It’s not always easy being a police officer, so a round of applause and cheers like this mean so much.

      Thank you, we are proud to serve

      I replied to their account:

      When you dress up as clowns with rainbow hatbands, simulate sex at Notting Hill for diversity reasons and back any group against your own people, pursue free speech rather than crime, then the attitude towards you is not going to be benign.

    My brother had his Toyota pick-up truck stolen he was told it was at a certain Travellers site the Police refused point blank to go on the the site, it seems they need permission from a senior officer.

      There is a clear perversion of Policing in this country. ” All ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS”. Time for a statue at Trafalgar Square for George Orwell.

    They were on her land, they are obviously in the wrong. They’re generally offensive characters. Really, these are not ‘travellers’ as they’ve stopped.

    Really, I don’t know what she expected. Th police to enforce the law? They don’t do that any more. They are desperately politicised and far too interested in the industry of diversity than law.

      Sadly, some people still cling to a rosy view – ‘Oh, other forces might be like that, but not ours!’ ‘Oh, it’s only a few bad apples!’.

      I used to think that way too.

    Glad you covered this, I meant to H/T you last week but forgot.

    It’s biased PC policing – one law for all has become a fallacy.

    Response to this verdict will drive to be pack magistrates with left PC zealots.

    MrsPcar’s 986 was stolen from drive. Police found it, said “buyer” had a receipt from chap he bought it from in pub. Refused to take further action and reused to reveal name & address – data protection. One plod confirmed “pikeys”.

    Complaints dismissed at all levels and insurers refused to pay as police would not assist.

    We still have keys, logbook, handbook etc.

    We have zero respect for police, cps etc.
