MUSLIM crime victims could gain the right to have their cases overseen by police from their own religion,
Police in London already give victims the right to ask for a Sikh officer to be involved in an investigation but the scheme could be introduced for other religions elsewhere.
Chief Supt Joanna Young, from the Met’s Criminal Justice Policy Unit, said: “If it’s a success, I would encourage the other (police) associations to do likewise.”
The project is intended to help investigate “honour” killings and forced marriages but Metropolitan Police Federation chairman Peter Smyth said: “We’re stretched thin enough already. Are Sikh officers going to have their rotas changed so there’s always one on duty?
“It’s political correctness gone mad. We talking about the creation of a separate force within a force.”
But Palbinder Singh, chairman of the Metropolitan Police Sikh Association, said: “I don’t believe a white officer is ever going to be fully conversant with a Sikh.”

You guys had a good run. You just dropped the ball at the whole "Banning Guns" thing. What can you do right? Oh well, maybe next time you will stay a armed citizen and not a disarmed subject?

LOL, The UK have completely lost their minds!
Immigrants generally immigrate for the opportunities to live in a better society and peacefully assimilate into the culture..... not turn the country you just moved to into the awful place you left from! If people are not willing to follow the laws of the nation... leave or change the constitution / laws via voting.
The PC nutcases over there will allow their nation to fall to ruin... then they will want to migrate here to do the same thing... LOL
