In a short video posted online, Devon and Cornwall Police said it’s everyone’s responsibility to report anyone seen to be “hateful” even if their behavior is not criminal. Funny how the video includes short animations that portray “hateful behavior” as a characteristic of white men ONLY.
Caldron Pool The minute-long animation is part of the ‘Zero Tolerance to Hate Crime’ campaign, which was launched with the help of “a representative group of different minority communities, PRIMARILY MUSIMS.
The video shows several white men harassing and physically assaulting Muslims, blacks, and disabled people. According to the video, if you observe or experience any threatening or hateful behaviour, even if it isn’t a crime, you should contact the Stasi police.”
Devon and Cornwall Police define a hate incident is “any non-criminal incident that is “perceived” by the victim or any other person to be motivated by hostility or prejudice.
According to Police, the keyword around hate crime and hate incidents is “perception.” “This is where the victim or another person feels the victim has been targeted because of a protected characteristic based on their: religion; race or ethnicity; sexual orientation or gender reassignment.”
