Plod plodding again

One of the bigger stories of the day is this.

 

Woman-making-racist-comme-007

 

Yes, regardless of one’s views on immigration, etc, it was a disgusting spectacle as this mother’s ignorance was on full display for all to see.

But what’s this?

Police launched an investigation after the video was brought to their attention on YouTube and Twitter. A spokesman said: "At present it is not entirely clear which tram stops the offence took place between and when it occurred.

"As a result, we need anyone who witnessed this incident, or with any information that could assist our investigation, to contact us."

What the fuck does Plod need?

Or is it just another case of the police wanting the public to do their work for them?

A woman has been arrested for allegedly making racist comments to other passengers on a packed tram. The incident was filmed and posted online, prompting police to investigate.

‘Allegedly?

They’ve got the woman on video for fuck’s sake.

I despair, I really do.

  1. Freeom of speech

  2. What about the freedom of that little boy?
    What chance does he stand with a mouthy slapper like that for a mother?

  3. Freedom of people not to be able to spell freedom ;)

  4. What worried me a bit (aside from the fact that her bilious rant was pretty sickening) is the whole “justice by social network” thing. People were giving out her address on Facebook, which clearly does nothing to reverse the wrong that she’s already done. She’s either mentally ill, or on drugs… the primary objective should be to get her into therapy and get the kid into a safe situation, not send thugs round her house.

  5. I totally agree, Adrian.

    I’d just like official action to be a little speedier.

    Even the BBC web site talked about her rant being an ‘apparent’ one.

  6. Haha, an “apparent rant”! I got the feeling she was bothered about something, too. Just a hunch… with my excellent people skills, I’m good at spotting things like that… ;)

  7. Just because she is an uneducated bint (SOMEONE has to sweep the streets), does not mean her views, however badly expressed, are wrong.

  8. She may have been under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, she may also have been a bit firghtened of being surrounded by aliens.
    She never, in all that rant, lied.

  9. That, for example, a black person can’t be British? Fuck off.

  10. “Even the BBC web site talked about her rant being an ‘apparent’ one.”

    That, and the ‘alleged’, is purely a legal nicety.

    It seems she’s been held in custody for ‘psychiatric reports’. You wouldn’t automatically get custody if you’d physically assaulted someone!

    Something stinks…

    1. Can you really have a valid understanding of ‘uneducated’?
    2. Why speculate on her vocation whilst you remain unemployed?
    3. Will you receive Federal benefit cheques for yet another decade?
