Drunken Nahit Ozarslan racially abused a bus driver before assaulting him and his colleague.
The 40-year-old, who came to Britain from Turkey in 2002, called Paul Matthews a 'white pig', Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard yesterday.Well! This is a turn up for the books, and no mistake!
Jailing Ozarslan for 12 months, Recorder Bal Dhaliwal said: "Mr Matthews was carrying out a public service. You used his skin colour against him. Mr Breward came over to see what the problem was. He was knocked unconscious.
"This was part of ongoing harassment of the bus driver. You were constantly racially abusing him.
"Every individual has a right to carry out their work without any fear of assault, threats or racial abuse."Goodness gracious me! Far be it from me to suggest that, instead of fitting everyone into a designated victim group, justice would be served by treating everyone equally, mind you.
