"Victims say that officers in the borough of Tower Hamlets have ignored or downplayed outbreaks of hate crime, and suppressed evidence implicating Muslims in them, because they fear being accused of racism."
Do read the whole thing, from 2011, it's a litany of failure on the part of the executive arms of the establishment tasked with protecting us from this kind of violence and intimidation and taking radicalisation seriously. Failure mostly as a result of the kind of fear generated by useful idiots like UAF of being accused of racism via disingenuously fuzzing criticism of islam or muslims with racism.
Gilligan has been documenting this for some time now.
UAF types were already at it on twitter yesterday just a couple of hours after the incident already labelling anyone speculating on an islamist connection of being racist. This in spite of the very first reported eyewitness accounts detailing that a white man had just been hacked to death by two black men.
I wanted to call the irony police, but I didn't want to wait 20 minutes.
