Samiul Islam draped a Palestinian flag over his car bonnet before parking up outside the Kantor King Solomon High School - which is a state comprehensive - in Barkingside, east London.
Ten officers in six police cars later swooped on the Bangladeshi student and handed him a £90 fine for causing 'harassment and distress' in breach of a Public Order Act.
For once, I'm not going to complain over police overmanning. I'm just delighted that the Barkingside police aren't capitulating in the face of such blatent provocation like the police in Luton.
Of course, this uppity little shit proclaims himself the victim:
Mr Islam said he was waiting in his car to pick up his siblings from the school when a man and a woman approached him and made offensive comments about Palestine.He described the situation as 'stupid' and 'disgusting', adding: 'How does someone with a flag on their bonnet cause the public a threat?'
'I've been harassed by three members of the public for sitting in my car and using the phone,' he claimed.
'But to them I'm a bigger threat because I have a flag on my bonnet which caused them to call for six other police cars to come.
'There were around 10 officers for what over a flag when they could be out there dealing with real criminals and crimes.'
Breach of public order is a crime. You want to protest about Palestine, Heathrow's over that way. Go protest there.
And they sent so many officers because they know what the likely reaction will be to anyone trying to tell your sort to keep your primitive tribal hatreds under wraps in public...
He also vowed to fight the fine, adding: 'I most certainly am taking it to court. I'm not paying that never. Disgusting behaviour that is.'
You're right there. But it's not the police displaying it, it's you.
