80% of hate crimes in Thurrock are racial

Thurrock Gazette: Assistamt Chief Constable Maurice Mason said his force are getting their act together over hate crime Assistamt Chief Constable Maurice Mason said his force are getting their act together over hate crime

FOUR out of five hate crimes in Thurrock are race-related.

New figures show that between October 2012 and September 2013, 243 race crimes were reported to the police.

Total hate crimes were up 28 per cent to 300, compared to 235 a year earlier.

Of those, 13 related to the victim’s sexuality and 17 related to a disability.

Speaking at the latest Thurrock Council meeting, Assistamt Chief Constable Maurice Mason said: “Hate crime is one area when I joined the job I wanted to get under control and it’s an area where we are getting our act together, because we are getting people in diverse communities to have more confidence to report these matters.

“We have officers in the county who work in that field that comb our incident records each day for anything that could be hate crime.

“They then flag it up and prod and poke us until officers are out there dealing with and investigating it.

“If anyone is subject to hate crime, please report it. We have dedicated extra resources to be able to identify and deal with this.”

This tends to happen when immigration rates change the demographic of the population by 1500% over a 10 year period.

Of course they are, that's what happens when you inundate an area with Africans at an alarming rate.

God the globalists spread immigration to change the homogenity of countries to suit their own ends and then get the state to back them up with threats and laws that sound like a school ground argument.

How about Thurrock police solve a few burglaries, robberies, muggings etc. and stop pandering to metro socialist lobby groups that are obsessed with racism and the rights of immigrants as opposed to the rights of the people that pay the police' wages.

Good points earlier, how many black on white crimes are in these figures?
If, as we suspect, it's none, and "extra resources" are going to be dedicated to it, then why are non-whites going to enjoy an order of protection that isn't being afforded to whites?
Second class citizens in our own country? You bet!

Shocking to read that people are being attacked in a hate crime because they are disabled. Nice to see that we've evolved beyond animals picking off the weakest in the herd.

80% of hate crime is not racial. More like 80% of hate crime is against vulnerable disabled people most white people.
Why don't they get their figures correct.

I think its shocking when the police put out statements without any background with the soul aim of grabbing a headline to pander to the wishes of the so called progressives.

They divide populations and make people even more resentful than they already are because people perceive that the police are targeting the white population and branding them as racist. This isn't true for the vast majority of people.

The police and council could do things like stop people that attend black only churches on a Sunday from clogging up roads with their cars and blocking local amenities thereby stopping others from using those amenities.

It would appear that the council and the police once again will bend over backwards to promote one part of the population over the rest.

I am not a local and am here for work reasons only (until later this year) I think the good people of Thurrock should be applauded for their restraint and tolerance when faced with issues caused by huge numbers of foreigners arriving in this area. Thurrock has been flooded with immigrants who compete for jobs housing and health care resources.

Can you imagine a reverse scenario where Thurrock people immigrated to the third world and Eastern Europe at the invite of their politicians and lived in self segregating enclaves?

The indigenous of these countries would be far less accepting than the locals of Thurrock.

The very term ‘hate crime’ is a construct of the failed ideology of multi culturism and political correctness.

None of course as only white people are racist. Where have you been the past fifteen years?

We owe these people as we once had an empire and invented slavery in 1750. They all pay far more in taxes than they take out and those unemployed are victims of institutionalised racism. Thurrock is a far more prosperous place as a result of these people flooding the labour market and driving down wage rates to that of 20 years ago.

Excuse me whilst I take my medication!

The only people committing hate crime are the white leftie hand wringers that obviously hate their own race as these are the people that have allowed Thurrock to be over run with immigration of which in turn is turning the area into a major ghetto. It is a crime these days to be a white hetro tax payer.

That sign really upset me!!
There I was at a loose end and thought to myself I really fancy laundering some money while having my hair weaved at the same time and it turned out I wasn't allowed in the shop due to the colour of my skin.
