Like electing a president or prime minister who doesn't care about calling people names.I suspect that the Law of unintended Consequences will come into play and this will end badly.
South Yorkshire Police relentlessly mocked after urging people to report one another for 'offensive or insulting words'
A police force has been slated after telling people to report one another for using “offensive or insulting words”.
South Yorkshire Police was criticised after urging its 166,000 Twitter followers to report “non-criminal hate incidents”.
The force’s account had initially asked people to report hate crimes based on race, religion, sexual orientation and disability.
But in a separate follow-up tweet, it added: “In addition to reporting hate crime, please report non-crime hate incidents, which can include things like offensive or insulting comments, online, in person or in writing. Hate will not be tolerated in South Yorkshire. Report it and put a stop to it.”
Agreed... I would also sign up just for the paycheck whilst studying....Ignoring the stupidity of this, if I was a student there, I signed up - easiest money you can get for doing nothing. Just each week or month full in some fictional occurrences that you handled.
Yep, them non-hate hate crimes giving people criminal recordsYou want PC bullcrap, I'll give you PC bullcrap...
In one area in the UK the police want people to report something if they are offended or insulted. It doesn't have to be a crime or criminal, someone just has to be offended.
How long before they roll this out elsewhere.
Money for doing nothing. Very progressive.Ignoring the stupidity of this, if I was a student there, I signed up - easiest money you can get for doing nothing. Just each week or month full in some fictional occurrences that you handled.
Doesn't work like that... if they gets offended, then they are in the wrong for a micro aggression of getting in the way of my noticing and reporting theirs.Ah but is it? One can't just assume somebody's race and gender. Get that wrong and next thing you're reported for being a bigot....
