The Manchester Evening News tells the story of a 14 year old schoolgirl arrested and questioned for 6 hours over a supposed racist remark.
The 14-year-old pupil had refused to take part in a science tutorial with five other students at Harrop Fold High School, Salford, after claiming they didn't speak English.
Her mother said: "She was not being racist. She was in a science lesson and the teacher split them up into discussion groups".
Sounds like a perfectly reasonable request. Pretty pointless having a discussion with people you can not communicate with - I guess it's pretty much like talking to a Labour politician.
"She asked to be taken out of her group because the other five students were Asians and four didn't speak English so there was no point in her being with them. When she pointed this out to the teacher she was accused of being racist".What a lovely teacher. Probably fresh out of the Peoples Socialist Republic University of Indoctrination.
"The matter was referred to the community police officer based at the school and she was taken to the police station and kept in custody for over six hours while they questioned her."Six hours of questioning a 14 year old schoolgirl over an alleged remark that some dippy teacher thought was racist!?! It should be the teacher in the nick for wasting police time. Have the police in Salford got nothing better to do?
Head Dr Antony Edkins said: "An allegation of a serious nature was made concerning a racially motivated remark by one student towards a group of Asian students new to the school and this country."
Doctor Antony Edkins, eh? I wonder what his doctorate is in? I wonder if it has occurred to Dr Edkins that a school that needs a community police officer stationed INSIDE it has probably got a few more important things to worry about without an over-sensitive teacher playing the racist card at the every opportunity. Notice also that the Asian students were "new to the school and this country". I'm sure that this 14 year old schoolgirl is, right now, contemplating the benefits of unrestricted immigration. She'll probably get much more opportunity to do so when she is sent on "diversity" indoctrination - er, I mean training.
This has got to stop.
