Re: Hate crime

Probably wouldn't have met my wife without a wolf whistle, luckily for us she was the one who turned & looked............she's been wolf whistling me since then :-)

With all the sexual harassment cr*p going on in Westminster a wolf whistling debate seems somewhat petty.

Would it be a bit of a come down for a woman if she complained to a guy about it & the response was, "I wasn't doing it at you".

Re: Hate crime

As France is still in a state of emergency, perhaps the powers that be think it will make women feel safer. Perhaps Melanie Onn thinks it will have the same effect in the UK?

But why all of a sudden is there a need for such laws? no one has ever died from being wolf whistled at as far as im aware.

Re: Hate crime

Those people who believe that free speech is alive and well in the UK, may have to think again. The latest so called, hate crimes have been given the full weight of the law so that in 2018, your innermost thoughts, intentional or not, may be construed as hate crime and you can be prosecuted for having "wrong thoughts", even when no actual crime has been committed. Sounds far-fetched?

"If someone does something that isn’t a criminal offence but the victim, or anyone else, believes it was motivated by prejudice or hate, we would class this as a ‘hate incident’. Though what the perpetrator has done may not be against the law, their reasons for doing it are. This means it may be possible to charge them with an offence."

https://www.met.police.uk/advice-and...is-hate-crime/

This makes a mockery of so called free speech. So if you perceive someone “might” have said something that upset you, it can be classed as hate speech! Crime has become subjective. Be afraid. Be very afraid. It is indeed now an offence if you find someone offensive. I find that bone chilling as well as offensive.

Orwell was right. Even if you haven't committed a crime, you may have already committed a crime.

Re: Hate crime

I was once called a white devil & another occasion a white western woman (by a lady of colour) Didn't greatly bother me BUT had I reported to the police no doubt they would have told me to grow up lady ! As far as I can see, so called hate crimes are a one way street !

Many years ago I was in a restaurant in Liberia and the waiter constantly ignored me. Eventually I touched him on the arm as he passed by and said I’d like a menu please.

Next thing the police arrived and the barsteward told them that I’d called him a ni99er. Thank heavens I had top government connections or I’d probably have landed in jail.

Re: Hate crime

All this talk of hate speech reminds me of a time back in Sydney where there is an equivalent of your Spouters Corner by the St Mary’s Cathedral.

A guy on his soap box was ranting racist hate and a little aborigine fella was squatting in the front row listening intently.

All of a sudden the penny dropped and he shouted to a passing mounted policewoman “that man is making racist remarks!”

She turned to him and said in good Ozzie style ‘If ya don’t like it you can farck off”.

I didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry.
