Beaten, Robbed, and Stripped Naked in Crumpsall

Cultural Enrichment News

Notice the “Tiny Minority Fallacy” in this news story: because an occurrence such as this is “rare”, we are supposed to be reassured.

Rare! Did a crime like this occur at all before about 1970? How many of these per year constitute an acceptable level of culturally enriched atrocity? Do you feel easy in your mind after being told that the chances of this happening to you are low?

The word from Al-Beeb:

Victim Stripped Naked by Robbers in Crumpsall

A 17-year-old boy was repeatedly hit with a metal bar and a chair leg before being stripped naked in an attack in Greater Manchester.

Police said the teenager was the victim of a “cruel and vicious” assault on the Abraham Moss playing fields in Crumpsall.

He was hit several times and knocked unconscious, before waking up naked. The gang had robbed him of £11.

The victim was treated in hospital for a fractured skull.

Det Con Robert Ashurst, of Greater Manchester Police, said: “This was a terrifying experience for the victim, who is really young.

“He has been subjected to a cruel and vicious attack for the sake of just £11, but I’d like to stress that incidents like this are thankfully rare.”

Police are appealing for witnesses to the attack which happened at about 1700 BST on Tuesday.

“There must have been a few people about on the playing fields at that time and who saw some or all of the attack,” Det Con Ashurst said.

“I’m appealing for anyone who knows who was responsible to contact us.”

One of the attackers was an Asian man who was wearing a red bandana, police said.

Here, let me translate those beaurocratic weasel words into plain English for you:

".....incidents like this are thankfully rare." -for the moment, but will become more and more common and eventually will become everyday occurances.

"There must have been a few people about on the playing fields at that time and who saw some or all of the attack." -but if they know what is good for them they will keep their mouths shut.

"I'm appealing for anyone who knows who was responsible to contact us."
-but I'm not gonna hold my breath!

"One of the attackers was an Asian man who was who was wearing a red bandana, police said." -the reason police called him an "Asian man" was because they could never get away with saying "Muslim thug."



Well, if the unfortunate young gentleman recovers from his fractured skull he will probably vote BNP.

Last patriot,

"One of the attackers was an Asian man who was wearing a red bandana, police said." -the reason police called him an "Asian man" was because they could never get away with saying "Muslim thug."

Naaah... I bet it was some Chinese Buddhist, they are known for their frequent involvement in rare incidents.

The cop is lying.
From what I read then in the Greater Manchester area and neighbouring Lancashire and West Yorkshire such incidents are COMMON and not "rare".
Or is the cop following the current trend of being economical with the truth? That is it is "thankfully rare" that victims of beatings and muggings are rarely stripped naked.
Yeah THAT is the truth
