NI racism tackled

I'm pleased at the news that the PSNI may set up special units to investigate the increasing number of race crimes in the North.

Shockingly, Chief Constable Sir Hugh Orde said there was now almost one racist attack a day in the province and described the problem as one of the biggest challenges facing his officers.

"The rise last year (recorded crime figures) equates to just under one (racial) crime) a day in Northern Ireland so is it is something we take very seriously."

The chief constable also told the Board many such crimes were linked to loyalist paramilitaries.

It's high time the disgusting level of racism in Ireland's north was tackled. Loyalists appear to be the main culprits and it's time these Loyalists finally learned that racism won't be tolerated in modern society.
