Yesterday, we saw the obligatory round of arrests in the aftermath of the Manchester atrocity - the number is now up to 15, as far away as Sussex - and the (also totally predictable) revelation that this could once again have been prevented.
And also, while these stories were garnering headlines, we saw smaller glimpses into the priorities of the UK Police forces. I won't comment on this, as Fahrenheit211 has said all that needs be said.
And no doubt, some people out there will welcome this action, no matter how utterly ridiculous, because 'racism is bad'.
But it seems that only some racism is bad, in the eyes of the police:
The family of two parents and their five children aged 8 to 15, were playing on the beach when two boys and three girls aged 16 to 18 allegedly ran towards them, hurling stones.
As the attack continued and the parents tried to shelter their children, the family called Kent Police, but the emergency operator advised them that no officers would be dispatched, despite the assailants remaining at the scene.
Instead, they were told that an officer would contact them the following week to “investigate”.That's odd. Or ... is it?
When are we going to wake up, and realise that radical Islam may not be the greatest threat our civilisation faces?
