Don't You Even Read Your Own News..?

Saul Willsher, 45, needed 17 stitches following the brutal attack by two thugs armed with the walking aid in Elmer Approach, Southend.
Saul was resting on a bench with a friend after drinking in nearby East Coast Social when they were approached by the men, who launched their unprovoked attack.
An Essex Police spokesman said: “Police are looking for witnesses following an incident in Southend where a man was attacked with a crutch.
“The victim, a man in his 40s, reported he had been sitting on a bench in Elmer Approach with a friend when they were approached by two men.
“The victim then got into an altercation with one of the men and was hit on the head with a crutch.
“He was taken to hospital to be treated for head injuries.
“The attacker was a black male, 18-19 years-old and wearing a light blue jacket.”
So, 'unprovoked' becomes 'after an altercation' in the same article!

Vicious assault = white indigenous male casting an askew glance at a BME member.
Slight altercation = attempted murder BY BME using any of a multitude of weapons, perpetrated upon a white indigenous male.
