    Cash for 'Victims of Hate Crime'
    Political Correctness; Posted on: 2007-08-08 00:09:58 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]

    News article filed by BNP news team

    A “Hate Crime” Forum in Northamptonshire has been given £15,000 by the Home Office to encourage victims of “hate crime” to come forward. This is just one of many county-based and local groups to benefit from a £500,000 windfall being distributed across the country to help train volunteers and pay victims of homophobia and hate crimes for reporting offences.

    The funding from the Home Office has been given to a range of community and campaign groups from across the UK. Some of the other beneficiaries are:

    • £28,290 to the Intercom Trust to fund their work in creating a network of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender agencies in rural south west England.

    • £26,900 to Stonewall to carry out national research into the nature and extent of homophobic and transphobic hate crime.

    • £25,000 to the Liverpool Culture Company for a violence prevention education programme to support to victims of hate crime, young people and teachers, and to tackle homophobic bullying and increase reporting.

    • £15,000 to Hounslow Community Support Partnership to fund a London Underground advertising campaign encouraging people to report homophobic hate crime.

    • £20,000 to the Partnership Community Safety Team in Brighton to increase reporting of hate crimes across a range of groups, including gypsy and travelling people.

    Home Office Minister Vernon Coaker, Labour MP for Gedling, Nottinghamshire said: "Victims are firmly at the heart of the criminal justice system and we are committed to ensuring that they have the support that they need." Mr Coaker also said "However we recognise that the nature of some crimes means that there are victims who require additional specialist support."

    Quite why Mr. Coaker believes that one kind of crime deserves its victims to be rewarded or receive specialist support for reporting the crime whilst another, like a pensioner being mugged of their pension doesn't, is beyond belief and shows just how out of touch this government is.
