Zero Tolerance.

Hurrah an evil racist is brough to book by our McPhersonised police:

When two police officers came to interview Jamie Bauld, a polite, friendly Down’s syndrome boy with a mental age of about 5 [which is enough for him to be nicknamed 'the professor by the police-ed], he welcomed them with a big smile and a handshake. As the officers read him his rights and charged him with assault and racial abuse, he agreed with everything they said, then thanked them for coming to see him.


Jamie, 18, cannot tie his shoelaces or leave home on his own, nor can he understand simple verbal concepts such as whether a door is open or shut. But his parents said that he was charged with attacking a fellow student, an Asian girl who also had special needs.

Christ! Just when you think things can't get any madder...

"“It was,” Mrs Bauld said, “like two five-year-olds having an argument.”"

The incident with her son? Or the behaviour of the police and prosecuters...?
