I'm Sensing A Pattern Emerging...

"What's a hate crime, sarge...?"

"It's defined in law, it's acts of violence or hostility directed at people because of who they are or who someone thinks they are."

"So this attack on people outside a gay nightclub was one...?"

Scotland Yard are not currently treating the incident as a homophobic attack.
Detective Sergeant Quinn Cutler said: “This is a particularly vicious and unpleasant incident which has left a number of people with potentially lasting injuries.
“I know that a number of people witnessed this incident and I urge those people to come forward and share their information and/or footage with police.”
Gosh. It's almost as though the police get to decide, not the victim, after all...

But, luckily, in the UK it's the jury that has the final say.
