I did a bit of research on so called hate crime a while ago & found that the figures for criminal convictions have actually gone down but reports have gone up & the main reason for the number of reports going up is that it's far easier now to report a "hate crime" online or over the phone, plus, you can report a hate crime even if you aren't the victim. So technically, I could report someone on here for saying "Gas the Jews" & it will be recorded as a hate crime, even though the chances of a conviction are pretty much zero. What a waste of time & resources & it seems like we've now turned offensive speech into a police matter. Fucking Clownworld.
Look okay the overstretched and underfunded police need more people wasting their time constantly every time they get upset by someone saying something they don't agree with, the terrible drunk 999 calls just weren't enough time wasted.
