More Of That Wonderful Diversity...

Chairman of the bench Oliver Haywood heard today the pair knew each other and unemployed Safi had been overheard shouting at the woman by a team of netball players using the park nearby.
Prosecutor Trude Scott said: "The witness said children were around there looking at the couple because it was loud.
"She saw Mr Safi shouting at a lady and she sat down. "He lifted his arm up and hit her on the face.
"She screamed and seemed quite scared."
Mr Haywood heard how the woman had a red mark to her face but refused to make any allegations against Safi.
Defending Safi, John Middlehurst said the victim’s cultural background meant she is regarded as her parents’ possession and it was up to them who she did and did not see.
Mr Middlehurst requested the court did not write to the victim to let her know the outcome of the case.
He said: "If they get a letter referring to this it will create very difficult problems for her - far worse than the problems of this case so far."
The court heard Safi had two previous convictions for affray and the possession of an offensive weapon in 2009.
He was sentenced to a 12 month supervision order and made to pay £85 in costs and £60 in a victim surcharge. The costs were reduced from £350 because of credit given to him for admitting the offence.
Can't we put it towards a one-way ticket back to Afghanistan?

Do we really need anymore of the sort of people who regard women as a possession or as chattel? My own opinion is that we do not.

Cultural issues is the latest name for state cowardice in the face of racial and religious whining and PC behaviour.

The law is the law. And under that law, we are 'supposed' to be equally judged.

Clearly I have been misinformed.
