“When approached for shouting whilst under the influence, the accused told police to ‘f*** off’ and called them ‘b*******’. He then began to kick and jump on shop shutters and refused to desist. When transported to Cathcart Police Station, Abdalla racially abused the officers and spat towards a constable….Abdalla will be supervised for a year and will have to complete 100 hours of unpaid work within three months.”
Compare: Britain First’s “leader, Paul Golding, was sentenced to 18 weeks in prison, while deputy, Jayda Fransen, was sentenced to 36 weeks on Wednesday. They had each been found guilty of religiously aggravated harassment at Folkestone magistrate’s court earlier the same day. “These defendants were not merely exercising their right to free speech but were instead aiming religiously aggravated abuse at innocent members of the public,’ the prosecutor told the court.”
So for racial abuse and spitting and more, Abdalla gets community service. For “religious aggravated abuse,” i.e., offensive words, Golding and Fransen got jail terms. This is the cowed and compromised Britain of Theresa May.
“Somali man Sakariye Abdalla avoids jail for racist abuse,” by Jenness Mitchell, Evening Times, March 29, 2018:
A SOMALI man branded a police officer a “white b****” and another a “n***** b****” during a boozy outburst.
Sakariye Abdalla, 40, came to the attention of cops who were on mobile patrol along the city’s Victoria Road one evening.
When approached for shouting whilst under the influence, the accused told police to “f*** off” and called them “b*******”.
He then began to kick and jump on shop shutters and refused to desist.
When transported to Cathcart Police Station, Abdalla racially abused the officers and spat towards a constable. The police applied spit hoods and then dealt with the accused.
At Glasgow Sheriff Court, Abdalla pleaded guilty to acting in an aggressive manner, shouting, swearing and kicking the front metal shutters of a shop in Victoria Road on January 9, 2018. He also admitted uttering racial remarks and attempting to spit on a constable at Cathcart Police Station following his arrest.
Abdalla’s lawyer claimed he was regretful of his actions. The defence agent explained that the accused, who is originally from Somalia, had been in the hostel system for a number of years which led to the rise of a criminal record and issues with alcohol and drugs….
Sheriff Alayne Swanson sentenced the accused, of Aberfeldy Street, to a Community Payback Order as a direct alternative to custody. Abdalla will be supervised for a year and will have to complete 100 hours of unpaid work within three months.
