Hate Crime

Further to my post on the Ciggy Busters from the Hundreds at Hoo school in Medway, Medway Police have replied with this:

Dear Mr Filthy Engineer

Thank you for your email regarding the Hundred of Hoo Comprehensive School, Kent and "A Betty* Medway." I am a detective sergeant on the Medway hate crime unit, and this has been given to me to investigate further.

I will be making contact with the school in due course, and shall update you once this has been completed.

In the mean time should you wish to contact me directly, my number is 01634 792541.

Yours sincerely

DS 10142 Sallie Baisley

The Hate Crime unit. Mmmmm.

*And why is Betty involved?


  1. Really?
    Have you seen the other responses given by Medway Police so far?
    I've seen two that have said they will take no further action because no members of the public were involved and no complaints have been made.

  2. Well mine seems to be classed as a hate crime, and you know how zealous they are over that.

  3. Yeah, surprising. You mention the words "shirt lifter" and you're nicked. I did think hate crimes against smokers were acceptable though.
    Should be interesting to see what happens.

  4. Well I did put this at the bottom of my Email:

    I am mindfull of Acpo's definition of hate crime: Any incident, which may or may not constitute a criminal offence, which is perceived by the victim or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate.'

  5. Hi FE,

    I hope you are well.

    Can you keep me updated please, I assume that is a genuine reply. I wonder what has motivated them? If someone did the same to minorities or gays in jest I am sure it would be investigated.



  6. I have just been sent an email from a reporter at This Is Kent. He is doing a follow up and wants to talk to me.
    Ive given him my number and I will let you all know what happens.

  7. Dave, I'll keep you updated if I hear anything.

    Bucko. Interesting to see a follow up.

  8. FE - See the Freedom 2 Choose blog. He has already spoken to the same reporter.

  9. Excellent news, FE, let's hope it's pursued all the way - or at least far enough to put the fear of god into these little idiots and their bonkers "teacher"!
