Katie Hopkins was condemned by police for using photo of Muslim volunteers to question whether “Sharia Patrols” would now be part of the West Midlands police force.
The outspoken columnist reacted to a picture taken of Handsworth Community Action Groupmembers with Insp Iftekhar Ahmed outside the area’s police station. The volunteers give up their own time to help the area and, in their own words, “make Handsworth great again.” (HEH)
But the picture was used by Hopkins on Twitter to raise the prospect of “Sharia patrols” on the streets of Birmingham. She wrote:
In a direct reply to Hopkins’s tweet, the West Midlands Force Response Twitter account asked her:
In June last year, Katie upset the West Midlands police with her claim that Birmingham Central Mosque was a “no-go” area for officers.
Sharing the comments with her 775,000 Twitter followers, Hopkins demanded a response from West Midlands Police, with others on social media following suit.
But West Midlands Police retorted:
The statement, which appeared on Hopkins’ account at 8.26am and was quickly pinned to the top, allowing maximum exposure, added: “Only two officers – both who had to be approved and agreed by the Imam/Mosque are allowed to go into the Mosque.
“All officers think this is a disgrace.”They clearly do not want us there to witness many clerics and speakers spreading hate,” said Katie.
The West Midlands police appear to have a Muslim problem..in that they let Muslims get away with murder.
The West Midlands Police are on the news all the time lately due to a huge violent Muslim crime wave sweeping the region.
And for some reason, the West Midlands Police seem to think they can focus on distracted drivers and sitting on the top deck of buses while dropping investigations of burglaries. So between the violent crimethat the police are not dealing with, and drivers being distracted by their phones at traffic lights, lies a burglary issue.
And West Midlands Police don’t seem to understand why those priorities are totally wrong.
