UK Police Are a Joke - Man Arrested for Preaching, Woman Arrested for Protesting Gays
This is the state of the UK nowadays. I guess the cops have to prioritise since there's a massive crimewave in London...

Christian preacher accused of racism gets wrongful arrest payout

Quote:A Christian street preacher who had his Bible confiscated as he was handcuffed by police has been awarded £2,500 for wrongful arrest.

A video of Oluwole Ilesanmi pleading with a police officer to “not take my Bible away” has been viewed millions of times since his arrest in February.


Ilesanmi was detained outside Southgate tube station in Enfield, north London, by Metropolitan police officers after he was accused of Islamophobia by a passerby.

The Christian admitted describing Islam as an “aberration” but said he was simply expressing his opinion rather than preaching hate against Muslims.

Footage of the arrest showed Ilesanmi, 64, being told by an officer that he was “causing problems, disturbing people’s days” and that “no one wants to hear that. They want you to go away.”

The video shows a police officer snatching a Bible from Ilesanmi’s hand, as the preacher says: “No, no, no, no, no. Don’t take my Bible away.” One of the officers then says: “You should’ve thought about that before being racist.”


Ilesanmi was led away to a police car and driven three and a half miles away to a bus stop where he was de-arrested.

Ilesanmi said on Sunday he had been awarded £2,500 for wrongful arrest for his humiliating and distressing treatment
. He told the Mail on Sunday: “I believe God loves everyone, including Muslims, but I have the right to say I that I don’t agree with Islam – we are living in a Christian country, after all.

“I was upset when they took away my Bible. They just threw it in the police car. They would never have done that if it had been the Koran. Whatever happened to freedom of speech?”

Ilesanmi will on Tuesday hand a petition to the Home Office asking for greater protection for street preachers. The campaign, which is being supported by the group Christian Concern, has been signed more than 38,000 times.

A Scotland Yard spokewoman said: “The MPS has reached a settlement with a man arising from an incident on 23 February near to Southgate Underground station. It would not be appropriate to discuss further details of this.”

Supt Neil Billany, of the force, said: “The Met respects and upholds the rights of all individuals to practice freedom of speech, and this includes street preachers of all religions and backgrounds.

“However, if the language someone uses is perceived as being a potential hate crime, it is only right that we investigate.

“That is the role of the police, even if a decision is subsequently made that their actions are not criminal. In this case, it was deemed appropriate to remove the man from the area.”

Waltham Forest Pride: Police probe 'homophobic abuse' video

Quote:Police are investigating suspected homophobic abuse after footage of a woman shouting "shame on you" at people on a Pride march was shared online.

A video posted on Twitter shows a woman wearing a niqab yelling at people, including one person in a rainbow flag.


The Met Police said it was aware of the footage, which was reportedly taken at the Waltham Forest Pride event.

The force said a 38-year-old woman has been arrested under section 4a of the Public Order Act.

The Met tweeted: "Abusing someone because of their sexual orientation or gender identity is a hate crime.

"If you have been verbally or physically abused, harassed or attacked in any way by someone because you are or they think you are LGBT+ please report these crimes to police or through a third party agency."

In the video of the event in Walthamstow on Saturday, a woman can be heard shouting: "God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. Shame on you, shame on all of you.

"Shame on you, you despicable people. Shame on you, you shameless people."
