    “The incident echoed the previous racial attacks on the immigrant communities and the indifferent attitude of the police towards the incidence of violence and attack on the non-white members of the society.” Really? Why do you think this is different from an assault on a person with mental health problems or Downs syndrome are treated by the police? Where is your proof of indifference?

    • Thanks for you comment Donald. The proof of indifference lies in the inability of police to catch the prepertrator who is still at large yet. I wonder if the victim would have been a white and prepetrator non-white. Racism in police ? Mark Duggan, Stephen Lawrence ?
