Rainbow police car to fight "hate crimes"

You just can't make this shit up
  • I guess just enforcing the law equally is not enough any more.  Now police must pander to whatever group has the loudest voice.  If you unlucky enough to belong to a politically invisible group then I guess you are shit out of luck.

(Norfolk Police, United Kingdom)  -  Norfolk & Suffolk Constabularies launch their newest tool to fight hate crime this week, a new Pride car.
Set to take to the road on the week of Norwich Pride, the car, with its rainbow design, is a sign of solidarity and commitment to the region's LGBT+ community.
Norfolk & Suffolk Constabularies have been consistent high performers in Stonewall's Workplace Equality Index, a benchmark of inclusivity as an LGBT+ employer and the car's introduction reaffirms their position on equality and diversity in both the workplace and the community.

Also, for the first time, Norfolk Constabulary will be flying the pride flag from Norwich's central Bethel Street Police Station which finds itself in the middle of all of the planned Pride celebrations set to take place over the weekend. 
The city centre station becomes the latest addition to a string of high profile venues to fly the pride flag including City Hall, Castle Museum and Norwich Puppet Theatre.
The Pride car will be located around Chapelfield Gardens and The Forum from 10am Saturday morning and will lead the new, longer Pride parade, set to leave City Hall at 1pm.
The car will also be seen at wider community events, open days and across the region's LGBT+ venues offering advice and support on hate crime reporting, providing reassurance and engaging with communities.
Norfolk’s Deputy Chief Constable, Charlie Hall said "I'm really pleased to see our car take to the roads of Norfolk & Suffolk. It signifies our continued commitment in supporting our diverse communities. This sends out a clear message that hate crime will not be tolerated in Norfolk & Suffolk and I'd like to encourage any victims of a hate crime to contact the Police."
Norfolk’s Temporary Equality & Diversity Manager, Julie Inns said “I am absolutely delighted and excited to see our new Pride car lead the celebrations this Saturday. Norfolk Constabulary has always been a firm supporter of its LGBT+ citizens and this sends out a message on two levels; one we recognise how important the rainbow symbol is to LGBT+ people, but more importantly it shows to those who choose to discriminate and commit hate crime that we stand firmly with our LGBT+ staff and citizens as friends, colleagues and Straight Allies. We hope everyone has a happy and safe Pride and we look forward to celebrating this important day with the whole community.”

Don't worry.
The U.S. is keeping pace with political correctness.
