That troublesome descriptor ‘Asian’ again
This piece was originally going to be a sarcastic ‘tweet’ to West Midlands Police, but I thought this latest use of the descriptor ‘asian’, should be highlighted in more than 140 characters. WMP are currently seeking the brutal attackers of a female care home owner, who beat her up and stole her car.
The WMP press release said:
“Detectives are appealing for information after the owner of a care home was seriously assaulted.
Sue Howard, aged 55, was approached by six to eight young lads (all aged approximately between 15 and 17) outside the Dolphin Fish Bar on Dolphin Lane at the junction with Warwick Road at around 6:55PM on 5th December 2013. They forced her to the ground and then repeatedly kicked her in the head and body until the car keys she was holding snapped off from the fob in her hand.
One of the offenders stole her black Mercedes SLK AMG Sport car and drove off on to Warwick Road, whilst the others fled on foot, leaving Sue lying injured in the street.
She’s disgusted by the offenders and has asked police to release images of her injuries in a bid to encourage anyone who knows the people responsible to break their silence.
Sue describes the moment the offenders approached her: “I saw them running towards me as they pulled up theirs hoods and covered their faces and I locked my car, but they rugby tackled me to the ground and started kicking me in the face. It was very frightening, it was disgusting. The attack was just prior to Christmas which couldn’t have happened at a worse time as everybody is busy preparing and not wishing to be out of action and without their mode of transport. I’ve been the proprietor of Victoria Lodge care home for the elderly for 24 years, I’m a caring person and passionate about my community; all I was doing was picking up an evening meal for the family when it happened. It’s also the mere fact that nobody came to my assistance even though there were others around at the time; I asked people if I could use their phone to call the police but they refused. I’m devastated.”
The offenders are all described as youths aged between 15 and 17; two of the group were noticeably taller and all wore black hooded tops, bottoms and trainers. The thief who took the car is described as Asian and between 16 and 17-years-old.”
Note the description of one of the offenders as ‘asian’. It may well be that one of the suspects is ‘asian’ but it is highly likely that the offender will not be a Sikh, will not be a Hindu, will not be a Jain, Zoroastrian or a Christian who happens to be asian, but will instead more than likely turn out to be one of our Bearded Savage interlopers. Those people who commit more crimes, and especially certain sex crimes than members of other groups.
If this crime doesn’t have at least some bearded savage involvement I’ll be very surprised. It’s brutal, was aimed at a woman and seems right up the savages street.
