Police are investigating...Burgary? Assault? Dangerous driving?
...comments posted on social media about asylum seekers staying in temporary accommodation at a York hotel.Hmmm. OK, but maybe they are concerned that they are committing crime and the local population needs protection?
North Yorkshire Police tweeted that ‘hate crime’ would not be tolerated and it was concerned about some social media posts relating to asylum seekers housed in the York area.
“We are looking into the issue and stand committed to stopping hate speech,” it added.Ah. Guess not. What does Priti's office have to say? Will they rein in these maverick so-called police officers?
The Home Office said it took the wellbeing of asylum seekers and the local communities in which they lived extremely seriously.
“On the rare occasions that there are problems (Ed: really..?) in a local area, we will always work closely with the relevant authorities to address the issue,” said a spokesman.
“Hate crime has absolutely no place in our society and we have a zero tolerance approach towards attempts to undermine our tolerance and respect for each other.”What if that 'tolerance and respect' is eroding faster and faster due to the increased perception that the government has no plan, no clue, and no intention whatsoever of halting the influx, though?
That they are slowly draining the coffers even more perniciously than Covid?
But maybe there's no real cause for concern here?
Their comments came as it emerged that two asylum seekers have been arrested on suspicion of affray at the hotel where they are staying.And when the council claims this as a victory, we see how hollow the State's attempt to claim all is normal really is:
A York council official has revealed that the organisation responsible for the asylum seekers’ accommodation was making arrangements to relocate four to alternative locations outside York, staffing levels had been increased at the hotel and police had increased visits to Clifton Moor.More police, more staff, moving them around the country - this is what you do with dangerous troublemakers in prison. Not 'people looking for a better life'. Isn't it?
