Police ‘are sending ethnic minority women and children back to their abusers because officers don’t understand honour violence’

Police are sending at risk women and children from ethnic minority backgrounds back to their abusers because officers don’t understand honour crime, the head of the police watchdog has said.

Sir Tom Winsor, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary, said women had been killed by family members because police had been unable to spot signs of honour-related violence, or fully understand the cultural issues surrounding it.

He also claimed that in some cases victims were being returned to their families or communities, who might have been responsible for the abuse, or who pose the greatest risk to them.

    Not difficult at all to “spot the signs” Is it a Muslim family or is the husband/father Muslim? That is all one needs to know.

      When even a liberal show like Law and Order: Criminal Intent deals with honour killings you know something is going on.
      I’d look up the episode but it is spring break and my kids are driving me crazy.

    Oh, they understand it alright…like the rape of white children…they just do not want to confront the invaders for fear of their pensions and msm calling them racist.

    Same could be said for many police forces and social agencies in Canada.

      We have already had such cases.

        Indeed. think of Aqza Parfez and the Sahfia first wife and daughters.

    Its just a shame we don’t take this to its logical extension and send the muzzie families back home where they can have their primitive culture all they want.

    The plods understand.

    They understand very well.
    The top filth and the political masters above them want zero complications with their vote whoring in the muslim marketplace. So kowtowing mainly with the worst muslim extremists keeps things very simple and quiet and everyone knows their place..
