UK: Sharia Police urge public to report insults that “hurt feelings” (blasphemy), but aren’t crimes

The more jihad, the more sharia compliance.

Daily acts of jihad terror in the UK compel the police ramp up sharia enforcement. The land of the Magna Carta is D E A D.

POLICE URGE PUBLIC TO REPORT INSULTS THAT HURT FEELINGS, BUT AREN’T CRIMES
The Telegraph, September 12, 2018:

Police force has urged people to report insults which make them feel bad even if they are not crimes.

Under the slogan ‘Hate Hurts’, South Yorkshire Police have called upon members of the public to report incidents they know not to be criminal in order to build up a wider picture of actions which cause distress to people within the community.

Non-crime hate incidents can include offensive or insulting comments made online, in person or in writing, but the campaign has drawn criticism from people who say the police have enough work to do.

The move has come after an incident in Barnsley’s market square involving a woman wielding a foot long kitchen knife, who was heard shouting ‘Kill, Kill, kill’’ by witnesses.

28-year-old Ayaan Ali has been charged with attempted murder, but police have said that since the incident, there has been an increase in Islamophobic outbursts on social media and in the streets of south Yorkshire.

Despite the attack, number of local leaders have questioned the feasibility of the new initiative, particularly in light of squeezed resources.

In May this year, South Yorkshire Police faced a violent crime wave, which saw them deal with five murders in just 13 days, and local officials have questioned the wisdom in using police time to deal with non-criminal actions.

In addition to reporting hate crime, please report non-crime hate incidents, which can include things like offensive or insulting comments, online, in person or in writing. Hate will not be tolerated in South Yorkshire. Report it and put a stop to it #HateHurtsSY

Councillor Robert Bernard said: “How do they propose to investigate incidents that are not crimes? If it’s not a crime then there is no way to investigate it, it should be so obvious.

‘‘I think somebody working in PR or social media has not thought this through. I don’t know where they are going to find the resources from.

‘‘If they don’t have the resources to investigate other things, how are they going to find the resources to investigate these? Fortunately tweeting doesn’t cost anything.’’

South Yorkshire Police has stood by its campaign, with Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts saying: “We record non-crime hate incidents in the same way we record non-crime antisocial behaviour incidents and non-crime domestic abuse incidents, so we can gain a fuller understanding of actions which cause distress to people within our communities.

“By doing this, we aim to support those affected and prevent this behaviour from escalating into crime. One of the basic principles of British policing is that prevention is more effective than detection.

Dr Alan Billings, police and crime commissioner for South Yorkshire, said: ‘‘Acts of hatred cause great damage to our life together. They divide and weaken communities.

‘‘I am totally supportive of the efforts by South Yorkshire Police to protect anyone who is the subject of a hate incident or a hate crime – because that could be any of us.

‘‘The incident in Barnsley town centre on Saturday sparked a lot of rumour and racist language which left some members of our communities feeling vulnerable.
‘‘The Force responded by reiterating a campaign that has been running for some time to ensure that those affected know how and where they can report crimes and incidents should they be targeted.’’
