Nytt

I kjølvannet av London Bridge-terroren lørdag 3. juni, overrasket Metropolitan Police påfølgende onsdag med å skryte av at de hadde pågrepet 25 mennesker for hatkriminalitet.

 

The Metropolitan Police have arrested 25 people since Saturday’s terror attacks, using hate crime legislation to crack down on words and actions deemed either offensive, or which target people «because of their race, religion, sexual orientation» or disability.

Meldingen syntes uvirkelig. Hadde ikke politiet annet å gjøre enn å slå ned på hva folk sa? Men det tok en stund før det gikk opp for folk at politiet synes det er viktigere å jakte på hatkriminalitet enn jihadister.

Speaking on Thursday, Chief Superintendent Dave Stringer, the head of «Community Engagement» for the Metropolitan Police, said:

Since Saturday evening’s attacks, we have increased the number of officers on the streets and in communities to reassure local people that they are able to go about their daily lives in peace and without fear of harassment or intimidation. Dedicated ward officers have also made contact with their local places of worship to encourage them to report hate crimes and to reassure those who congregate there that the police will take these crimes seriously. The Metropolitan Police has made 25 arrests for hate crime offences since Saturday.

Muslimers ve og vel er det som opptar politiet. Det er noe med perspektivet som blir feil, ut fra hva som har skjedd. Ville politiet brukt like mye ressurser på å beskytte den innfødte befolkningen hvis det var snakk om høyreekstrem terror mot muslimer?

Piers Morgan har forandret seg den senere tid. Han stilte borgermester Sadiq Khan til veggs på spørsmål om prioriteringene. Khan som er blitt rost av mediene for sin håndtering av terroren, hadde ikke mye å si til sitt forsvar.

 

The news comes as London Mayor Sadiq Khan told Piers Morgan in an interview that London’s police did not have enough resources to monitor the jihadists returning to the United Kingdom from Syria and Iraq. He said in an interview Wednesday morning:

I can’t follow 400 people… the Met Police budget, roughly 15-20 per cent comes from me, the Mayor. The rest is funded by central government. If the Met Police budget is being shrunk and reduced, they’ve got to prioritise and use their resources in a sensible, savvy way.

Asked what could be a bigger priority than tracking jihadists in the UK’s capital city, Mr. Khan declined to answer.

Now, however, it seems we are learning of the Met’s priorities. The force boasted on Thursday of the large amount of resources they dedicate to policing hate crime.

Det er her det virkelig tar av. Mens terrortrusselen aldri har vært større og mannskapet er strukket til bristepunktet, velger politikere og pollitiledelse å prioritere hatkriminalitet, dvs det noen måtte finne på å si om eller til muslimer, helst på nett.

All hate crimes are reviewed by a Detective Inspector and the MPS has also increased specialist investigators within the 32 London borough community safety units by 30 per cent, with more than 900 specialist members of staff dedicated to investigating all hate crime and domestic abuse crimes.

900 spesialister som jobber med hatkriminalitet! Det er vanskelig å fri seg fra følelsen av at Storbritannia ikke lenger vet å forsvare seg. Man jakter på feil fiende.

With the average salary of a police officer in London standing at around £38,000, this means the force is dedicating around £35m of resources to hate crime policing.

Politiet samarbeider med en gruppe som kaller seg TELL MAMA, som mottar anmeldelser om hatkriminalitet. Men Telegraph avslørte at de blåser opp tallene og halvparten gjelder hatespeech på nett, som er noe annet enn fysiske angrep.

The Telegraph reported that many of their hate crime claims were exaggerations at best, and that out of the 212 «Islamophobic incidents» reported by Tell MAMA, 57 per cent happened only online, with a further 16 per cent of incidents not being verified. Only eight per cent of incidents involved physical targeting, and no attacks were serious enough to require medical treatment.

The group maintains a blog frequently criticising President Donald Trump, anti-Shariah campaigners such as the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney, and Breitbart.com.

Vi ser samme fenomen som med Antirasistisk senter i Norge: Man er aktivister og mister tillit hos publikum.

Det er tragisk når politiet har slått inn på samme vei, og tror det er meninger og feil holdninger som er farligere enn jihadisme.

The Met Police statement adds: «We have increased the number of hate crime liaison officers who are a single point of contact for all those who need support after reporting a hate crime and we have introduced an Online Hate Crime Hub to tackle hate crime on social media.»

Med et slikt fokus midt i terrorens tidsalder ser det mørkt ut for britene.

Akkurat som det gjør for svenskene.
