If the post is public and gains noteriety and someone makes them aware. It could then be taken to the hate crime department.
I'd love to work in that department, any jobs going?
Must be great having to look through things that are probably not even a hate crime and being paid for it, I bet there's plenty work, never ending in fact.
Oh the joys.
I'm not diluting it, either it's a hate crime or not, if it's not then it's a total waste of tax payers money.
From where I sit the only hatred appears to be for a. People who vote Conservative.
b. People who voted to leave the EU.
Listen to the clip at the top of this page.I agree. Not too clued up on this case however if there has been no crime and especially no complainant i would not be getting asked to speak to someone. Sometimes you would by a complainant to prevent offences however there may be more to this than meets the eye and usually there is.
Listen to the clip at the top of this page.
I was genuinely shocked to hear the head of south yorkshire police telling people on the radio to report non crime hate incidents.... which stretches to just about anything.
I think it's far worse than that.I would be assuming and this is an assumption this would be for intelligence to maybe monitor and piece together any hate related incidents or groups involved in hate and far left/right views maybe? Other than i dont understand it
I think it's far worse than that.
Have you listened to him explaining it
It's seriously worrying stuff. We already have draconian laws that target freedom of speech. When teenage girls are getting brought to court for posting rap lyrics online.... things are bad
Agreed, but I stand by the fact that hatred works both ways and whilst any hate crime is unacceptable it would appear that people's hatred of Brexit voting Tories is acceptable to some.I'm guessing you're a white male Brexit Tory voter then.
You're not for example an ethnic minority or LGBT or a migrant worker... I could go on.
You surely can't deny that there's a rise in hate crime. It's an established statistic.
Yeah. My force dont have people going through youtube videos and facebook posts just looking for crimes. Would be on all day
My issue is that I imagine a lot of people have accepted cautions and other 'lesser' reprimands from the police for this sort of shit, purely due to fear of going to court where it would be dismissed as nonsensical.
