Crime commissioner urges victims of hate crime to speak out

Nick Alston has urged victims of hate crime to report offences to the police

Nick Alston has urged victims of hate crime to report offences to the police

First published in News by

ESSEX Police and Crime Commissioner Nick Alston has called on victims of hate crime in Southend to report the offences to police.

Mr Alston made the comments after seeing a play at the Arc Theatre as the guest of Southend Ethnic Minority Forum.

The production followed a family’s anxiety after having their van covered in white paint, as they debate whether or not to call the police for fear of reprisals.

Mr Alston said: “Nick Alston said: "The play by Arc was thought-provoking and highlighted the dilemmas often faced by victims. I understand why victims are sometimes reluctant to report.

“However if we’re to stop hate crime, police must know where and when it’s happening.

"Chief Inspector Matt Bennett attended the event and emphasised the force has a real commitment to responding to and investigating hate crime so the key message of the day was to please report incidents to Essex Police.”

The event, held on April 12, was dubbed ‘An Afternoon with Nick Alston’ and allowed members of the community to pitch their questions to the commissioner.

What does Mr. Alston think about hate crime against caravans - i.e. - said vehicles being set alight on the public highway whilst containing potentially explosive gas canisters? Has he pronounced on that incident yet?

I expect he is interested about the effects hate crime has on people, not some dis-jointed opinion, in regards to a couple of abandoned caravans, you have flung off on a tangent, on this story, and become confused, please try to stay focused to the story per say.

are you and Lastlaugh aka This Year, alter egos? I rather suspect this barmpot has several different aliases of which you are one - but NEVER posts under his real name. Funny that. I stand by my own comments with a signature. Strange how so many of the worst name callers, bigots and maniacs don't do the same. Obviously haven't the courage of their own convictions.

Hatred of travellers. You mean when we tell the TRUTH, that automatically qualifies us as "haters." It just means we say it like it is, something people like you have a problem with, You'd rather hide behind lies just to appease your Leftie mates.

Get real for God's sake.

I tried this once incidentally, reporting hate crime.

Got me absolutely nowhere.

Similarly a friend of mine did the same and got the same result. And I know of others around the country similarly treated.

Most "hate crime" seems to emanate from social networking sites and the police really cannot be bothered to get stuck into malicious communications. Too time consuming.

Likewise with exploding caravans which ARE a hate crime because they were detonated in a public place likely to cause death or injury to the general public. Recklessness as to the consequences of your actions and the impact they might have on others, is even worse than hate. It's indifference.

Emergency services were deployed and the road closed at PUBLIC EXPENSE... and guess who will be paying for their ultimate removal. .. that's right...

Dear God, it's not rocket science.

How about this for a hate crime, some poor 5od dates the wrong girl and because he was not "one of them" (sounds a bit racist to me) he ends up in jail.

Got me absolutely nowhere.

Similarly a friend of mine did the same and got the same result. And I know of others around the country similarly treated.

Most "hate crime" seems to emanate from social networking sites and the police really cannot be bothered to get stuck into malicious communications. Too time consuming.

Likewise with exploding caravans which ARE a hate crime because they were detonated in a public place likely to cause death or injury to the general public. Recklessness as to the consequences of your actions and the impact they might have on others, is even worse than hate. It's indifference.

Emergency services were deployed and the road closed at PUBLIC EXPENSE... and guess who will be paying for their ultimate removal. .. that's right...

Dear God, it's not rocket science.
Kim you are a hate crime in progress..you feel caravans hate the general public and so self-explode?

Now that is weird thinking
We all know what she means.
You speak for 'all' ?

Now that is weird thinking!
I think I do. Her post was quite clear to anyone with a bit of intelligence. Of course, there will always be the one who takes a few words out of context but luckily you are few and far between.

How about this for a hate crime, some poor 5od dates the wrong girl and because he was not "one of them" (sounds a bit racist to me) he ends up in jail.

You think you speak for all...but doesn't the fact you don't speak for me give lie to your claim?

"Likewise with exploding caravans which ARE a hate crime"

Nothing taken out of context...she states exploding caravans are a hate crime..

Link doesnt seem to work..but im sure there is no jailable offense for dating the wrong girl...or not being one of them, a wrong girl, is a crime..try again.
The link works on my computer, maybe your computer is defective. Try it again.

It is possible to be racist against your own kind,as in telling your children 'you can't do that, as that is not how xxxxx behave'. For **** insert the group of your choice.

Seems the judge saw through the drug dealers mitigation and sentenced him accordingly..cant be any complaints I'm sure.

Im not sure what your 'example' is trying to convey..

Im also not sure you can be racist again your own community..but its an interesting thought.

A violent unprovoked crime should be treated seriously and the offender punished severely regardless of race or colour. To treat an otherwise similar case differently because of a racism element is to dilute the importance of the other, which is an insult to the victim of the crime that did not involve a racial element. It says the latter victim is less important.
It's as if the race element is being used as a means of fighting the lessening of seroiuosness with which violence or harassment is being treated by judicial system. A means of cranking the deterrent back up somewhat, in a way that the Guardian reading trendies might conocur, or at least not object.
All in all, a rather sad story.
