Not a hate crime?

You have to wonder just what someone from the not white majority part of the UK would have to do to be accused of a hate crime for racist behaviour. You’d think a 4 on 1 attack with the perpetrators screaming kill the white slag and calling the victim a white bitch, pulling a chunk of the victims hair out and leaving them so traumatised they have had to give up work due to flashbacks.


A gang of Muslim girls who repeatedly kicked a young woman in the head walked free from court after a judge heard they were ‘not used to being drunk’ because of their religion.
The group screamed ‘kill the white slag’ while kicks raining in on 22-year-old Rhea Page as she lay motionless on the ground, the court heard.
The attackers – three sisters and their cousin – were told by a judge that normally they would have been sent to jail.
However, he handed the girls – all Somalian Muslims – suspended sentences after hearing that they were not used to alcohol because their religion does not allow it.
Their victim was left with a bald patch after they pulled a chunk out of her hair during the attack on the High Street, Leicester.
Ambaro and Hibo Maxamed, both 24, their sister Ayan, 28, and cousin Ifrah Nur, 28, attacked Rhea, a care worker, as she walked to a taxi rank with her boyfriend after a night out.
The victim, a support worker, was left so traumatised that she lost her job following repeated absences with stress and flashbacks, Leciester Crown Court was told.
The charge – assault occasioning actual bodily harm – carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
James Bide-Thomas, prosecuting, said Ambaro Maxamed, who started the violence, had called Miss Page a ‘white bitch’ during the incident.
The women, who are all Somalian Muslims, were not charged with racial aggravation.

Can anyone see any reason why this wasn’t a racial attack? Can anyone imagine had the roles been reversed that a group of white women doing the same thing wouldn’t have been up on racial aggravation charges as well?

The whole point of justice is that it is supposed to be the same for everyone, that’s why the statue representing justice is blindfolded, yet it’s becoming increasingly obvious that there is a two tier (at least) system in operation and it seems to be based on the colour of your skin/religious persuasion. Anther recent example being here, which looks suspiciously like a race hate crime but will not be investigated as one as the victim is white and we all know that only white people can be racist.

This sort of story and the quite evident differing approaches to depending on the victim will breed more and more resentment in society many of whom in the majority already feel that they are victimised simply for being who they are and that those whose skin colour is different get preferential treatment when dealing with authority. After all, take the case of Emma West, who pleaded not guilty yet  is still in jail on remand for further reports till the new year and her kids in the care of social services for having rant on a tram.Yet what these young women did is far far worse than that and you guessed it, after their arrest were released back into the community on bail.

Something is seriously out of kilter in our society and if it is not put right the resentment will continue to grow until it explodes into violence. You often have politicians and pundits warning against the rise of nationalist groups, todays headline in the Daily Mail is a perfect example of why it’s happening.

Following the disgusting behaviour of the judge in the  attack against the white girl in Leicester by four Somalian girls.

The EDL will be holding a national demo on the 21st of January 2012.

    Your conclusions are just so so right. The whole issue of race has gone so lop sided as to now feed, and some would say correctly, into the hands of so called far right groups, although when you look at some of their policies they are actually on the far left.

    No No No, you don’t understand. Only white people can be racist – didn’t you know that ?

    To me this is even worse than a case of unequal application of the law where race is concerned: remember it was a nebulous “cultural” defence that got them off. Dangerous territory indeed.

    There’s also the fact that the boyfriend was described as “using unreasonable force”. And it was considered a mitigating factor. Excuse me? I don’t know many men who would assume a natural strength advantage against four female attackers….I also can’t help wondering whether he would currently be behind bars if he’d been less drunk and/or a better fighter. If four women tried attacking someone I was with I wouldn’t take any prisoners though I’d very likely end up as one…

      Sums up the whole imbalance in a nutshell. Chances are that like many men he will have been brought up to be courteous and respectful to women. Lot of guys will be extremely reluctant to plant one on a woman simply because we do know our own strength. I suspect alcohol and upbringing caused him to freeze and not respond terribly well to an awful situation.

        It’s fairly clear from the video that this guy was totally off his face. Lucky for him really as he would unquestionably be behind bars by now if he’d done them any decent damage.

        If this had been me, I would not have held back against these creatures. They are not ‘women’ who deserve courtesy or respect. They were behaving like wild animals and as such should expect to be treated as such.

        I would also inevitably have to bear the consequences, but fuck it, I’ve just had enough of this shit now.

    Obviously, evidently we are not all equal under the law and the scales of justice are tilted in favour of ethnic minorities, this is bad law.
    When politicians felt the need to discriminate in favour of one race over another, then, isn’t that a racist act in itself?

    I watched the CCTV (I think if was on the Daily Mail website). If anything the boyfriend showed remarkable restraint!! If that was my partner being REPEATEDLY attacked, then there would have been some ‘ladies’ getting knocked out cold. 😈

    It is and it will. Good post.

    A side issue to this is the appalling message this sends out about personal responsibility. When the hell did choosing to take intoxicants excuse your behaviour while being on them, even if you’re not used to them?

    “Sorry I crashed the car into a queue of people at a bus stop, your honour. I wouldn’t normally have got in the car at all as I was off my dial at the time, but I’m not used to being that drunk.”

    It wouldn’t wash with anyone I know. You chose to drink, you’re responsible for anything you do while drink. It’s that simple.

      David, is this the poor woman who was youtubed on the tram? If so, please let her know that some of us in this country don’t actually think she did anything so wrong that it required her incarceration or the social stasi getting involved. I hope she is able to recover her family and resume her life some time soon.

        I will do so John but it would be great if as many people as possible could write to her to show their support and show TPTB that there are millions who think the same as Emma.

    The Emma West [Tram Woman] issue is an utter disgrace to this country, an event worthy of The USSR under Lenin.

    I’ve personally experienced far worse racism on public transport in my 20 years in London and never from white lips.

    Here is some truth on the story :

    That “ladyk89” person should be ashamed of herself. Along with every self-righteous and judgemental cretin who commented on that video in her condemnation. Even more the threats of violence and rape from black men who posted videos commenting on the video on youtube.

    I don’t approve of insulting people unless they deserve it but my god Ms West was right about something…

    “This country is shit, its f*cking shit”.
