Dog accused of ‘hate crime’ in UK

Astoundingly, a dog has been accused of a "hate crime" after relieving itself outside a home in Britain. Some 2 500 such "hate incidents" were revealed in a 118-page document disclosed under the UK Freedom of Information Act.

    According to the police report, the animal pooped right in front of the residence after which the “victim perceived this to be a racial incident”.

    The fouling dog logged by law enforcement as “racist hate crime” is one among thousands of alleged “hate crimes” reported The Mail on Sunday. In another “hate incident” a “suspect’s dog was barking at victim”.

    Another man claimed that his neighbours were parking only outside his house, “targeting him due to him being black”.

    Thousands of these alleged “hate incidents” were registered by the UK Metropolitan Police in 2015 and 2016. Those include an envelope that had been opened and resealed, one person who felt a bus driver had given them a “racist look” as well as a man telling local library staff he was campaigning for Brexit.

    Another “victim” complained to police about her neighbours after she eavesdropped on them and allegedly heard them talking about her, which she then filed as a “race-hate” incident.

    In a separate complaint, a Muslim school student reported his teacher for “faith-based abuse” after she spoke to him in an “abrupt manner” because he was struggling in a swimming lesson

    One complainant claimed “racial abuse” after he collected a letter from the Post Office addressed to him that had been opened and resealed. In yet another case, a apartment resident reported that a neighbour was “racially abusing” them by “smoking heavily”.

    An angry father called police after his daughter lost a tennis match to complain the defeat was due to a racist umpire. “Informant feels his daughter was subjected to racial discrimination at a tennis match where line calls went against her,” the incident log stated.

    A Tory MP has denounced these “non-crimes” was a waste of police time. “This is part of the reason that police struggle to investigate serious offences such as home burglaries,” said David Davies.

    But the Law Commission, an independent body, said it would review the effectiveness of current hate crime legislation and would soon be adding other “hate” offenses to the list.

    Muslim Home Secretary Sajid Javid announced in October that he was “committed to stamping out this sickening behavior [of racists]” and that “hate crime goes directly against the longstanding British values of unity, tolerance and mutual respect”. He said new measures would include a public awareness campaign will be launched in autumn, designed to educate British society about “hate crimes”.

    Javid added: “Our refreshed action plans set out how we will tackle the root causes of prejudice and racism, support hate crime victims and ensure offenders face the full force of law.”

    British police are forced by law to record ludicrous racial allegations as a “hate incident” even if the incident is not a crime.

    After the news broke of the flood of ridiculous complaints, Scotland Yard withdrew its claim that it has 900 officers dedicated to investigating alleged hate crimes. Earlier, a Metropolitan police chief had tweeted: “We have 900+ specialist officers dedicated to investigating all hate crime.”

    Religious hate crimes have “surged by 40 percent in England and Wales”, according to figures released by the UK government in October.

    The revelations of the nature of these particular “hate crimes” come in the wake of statistics detailed in the Home Office’s annual report which show that 52 percent of religious hate crimes targeted Muslims.

    They also showed that the number of offenses recorded by police rose to an all-time high of 94 098. It is a rise 17 percent on the year before and more than double the number five years ago. More than three-quarters of hate crimes are “racially motivated”, the report said.

    The sharp rise in such alleged transgressions is no doubt due to the uncritical adoption of the notion that feeling hurt or uncomfortable is somehow a result of a crime being committed.

    “Hate crimes” motivated by the victim’s sexual orientation make up only 12 percent, religious hate crimes 9 percent, disability hate crimes 8 percent and transgender hate crimes 2 percent.

    The Home Office noted that “hate crimes” in all categories had increased but conceded that the rise was “largely driven by improvements in police recording”.

    “Today’s shocking revelation of a 40 percent rise in religious hate crime must serve as an urgent call to action,” Marie van der Zyl, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said in a statement posted to Twitter last month.

    “The Jewish community will continue to work in solidarity with Muslims and people of all faiths. We cannot let Britain become a place where a Hijab or a Kippah marks someone out as a target,” she said.

    An extra £1.5 million will be made available to groups to stamp out alleged “prejudice and hatred”, while ministerial roundtables on Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism will be held.
