We should not be surprised by this. Manchester's Gay community is well established with a well organised lobby. And this blog is no friend of those who commit "hate crimes" against any group or individuals....we merely ask that all victims are treated equally in the seriousness with which their complaints are taken.
However, there is one fact reported in this case which should cause concern to all. It is that the car is reportedly "Funded by donations from businesses". Sponsorship? He who pays the piper calls the tune. Are we moving towards a situation where we will have a semi-private "Pay Police" where those who pay an additional payment will get their own police car on call?
And will anyone be able to sponsor a car? Could the residents of say, Royton, or Rochdale sponsor a car to make the streets of Royton, or Rochdale, free from groomers and safe for the local young girls?
