Bolton joins forces to combat hate crime

First published in News

BOLTON Council, Bolton at Home, police and voluntary groups and charities joined forces to mark Hate Crime Awareness Week.

Voluntary groups ran information stalls at the University of Bolton, Royal Bolton Hospital and the Mental Health Independent Support Team charity shop in Great Moor Street throughout the week.

They promoted awareness of mental health issues and disabilities and aim to discourage people from committing hate crime.

Today (SAT) Bolton Wanderers Community Trust will be holding a football tournament for 12 to 18 year olds at the Reebok Stadium themed around community cohesion, followed by a workshop for young people to discuss hate crime in the Community Learning Zone.

Youth groups also got involved, with Harmony Youth Project delivering a dance and musical performance themed around hate crime last night (FRI) while Raise the Youth worked with schools to deliver a presentation to tackle the negative connotations associated with the word ‘gay’.

Bolton Clarion Choir will be commissioning an original song about hate crime awareness which will be performed in Bolton town centre today (SAT).

Cllr Derek Burrows, cabinet member for community safety said: “Hate crime is completely unacceptable and we are working with our partners to end it completely.”

Hate crimes and incidents can be experienced by anyone.

Victims and witnesses can report, anonymously if they wish, by calling the police non-emergency number on 101 or online via True Vision at report-it.org.uk.

The trouble with these things is its all about bashing British people. Is it an hate crime when a Black person rapes, robs and murders a British person for fun ?

Like the Muslim women attempted kidnapping of a white woman off the streets for having a lesbian affair with their sister.... why no homophobic or racist charges?

Because it wasn't racially aggravated ... But they did get charged with being homophobic hence why they got such a long sentence... Not every crime where the victims skin is a different colour to the offenders is racially aggravated

There was no Homophobic charge brought to any of them. They shouted you have messed with the wrong Muslims as they committed the crime. Had that been a cry of you have messed with the wrong Christians by christians to a Muslim i think racist charges would have also been brought.

I'd say as I've said numerous times before that when large groups of muslim only men groom and rape white underage girls, then isn't that racially aggrivated crime, in that only one race is targeted by these beasts!

You said, " But they did get charged with being homophobic hence why they got a long sentence.". None of them did get charged with that offence and perhaps you could tell me why their comments saying, "you have picked on the wrong Muslims" while trying to kidnap her and possibly kill her if they had got her into the car isnt incitement to cause Racial hatred. ?

The judge took into consideration the fact it was homophobic and gave them longer terms... A hate crime adds an extra two years onto the term hence why you can't have a racially aggrevated rape or other serious offences because they carry maximum sentences of life
