British Schoolgirl Arrested for “Racism”


A 14-year-old British schoolgirl, who had been in the hospital the previous day, was denounced for racism by her teacher, who proceeded to file a police complaint. The young girl was ultimately arrested, fingerprinted, and placed in a jail cell for three and a half hours.

Her offense? She had complained of being placed in a study group with five Urdu-speakers with whom she could not communicate, and asked to change groups.

Her teacher at Harrop Fold High School in Worsley, Greater Manchester, reportedly shouted and screamed at her: “It’s racist, you’re going to get done by the police.”

The girl was placed in isolation, and a complaint of committing a section five racial public order offence was lodged against her by her teacher via the full-time police officer stationed in her school. A week later, the bobbies arrived to take the young lady into custody.

She was ultimately released without charges, and permitted to transfer to a different science class.

The Daily Mail reports:

Headteacher Dr Antony Edkins said: “An allegation of a serious nature was made concerning a racially motivated remark by one student towards a group of Asian students new to the school and new to the country.”

“We aim to ensure a caring and tolerant attitude towards people and pupils of all ethnic backgrounds and will not stand for racism in any form.”

This Comrade has been lucky to have been placed in isolation after all. She could have been sent to re-education camp in Siberia for such reckless bourgeois-like behavior. Well, well; I think she is still young, but she has to understand she should be thankful and apologize to all her comrades for her imperialist-like wrongdoing. Then she could catch up in joining the Fabian Society where she’ll learn more on the virtues of social co-education, or in going in the Indian countryside where she could question herself through the healthy practice of agriculture with our Indian comrade workers. LOL.
