It started a long time ago when policing was infected with the virus of politically correct bias and skin colour, ethnicity, religion and sexual preference started to be among the factors taken into account when determining whether someone should be prosecuted.
This quickly led to situations such as what occurred in Rotherham, Yorkshire, when despite it being common knowledge that hundreds of under age girls were being groomed and sexually abused by gangs of Pakistani, Muslim men, the police and civil authorities chose to turn a blind eye for fear of being branded racist. The pattern was repeated in towns and cities all over Britain.
Stung by criticism of their failure to act in these cases and widely ridiculed for the enthusiasm with which they pursue perpetrators of ‘hate crime’ while, in the interests of multicultualism and diversity, take days to respond to reports of violent crime thus allowing people who might have guns, knives or baseball bats with nails through the end plenty of time to get away, have come over all snowflake and are threatening to prosecute people for making fun of them.
Only one valid response to that really.
