Reader’s Comment: Identity politics is tarnishing our justice system


In response to Andrew Tettenborn: Police should tackle crime regardless of motive, mudlark2 wrote:

Thank you for highlighting this continuing insult to our sense of what is right and wrong. I had to laugh though when I read this headline in last Sunday’s ‘Observer’, above Catherine Bennett’s column: ‘What sort of judge weighs the victim and not the crime?’ In it, she referred to the lenient suspended sentence given to Mustafa Bashir, who beat his wife with a cricket bat, and criticised the judge involved for evaluating the victim’s status when deciding on the punishment. Yet this is exactly what the police and judiciary do in prosecuting hate crime and it is the inevitable result of the Left’s obsession with identity politics, which is perverting the course of justice and bringing the law into disrepute. Of course, the irony is that had the victim been a man and the perpetrator a female, I’m not sure she would have bothered mentioning it.
