‘Sensitivity and understanding needed to encourage families who may report extremism fears’

Greater levels of sensitivity and understanding must be shown towards people who are considering telling the authorities of their fears that a friend or family member has been radicalised, according to a landmark study by Yorkshire academics.

A report into the barriers stopping people from reporting family and friends who they suspect of being drawn into extremism has been published by the University of Huddersfield in a bid to fill a “critical blind spot” in counter-terrorism efforts.

    If at all feasible, deport the families that don’t report their jihadist.

    WHO do you want to have sympathy and sensitivity for….
    THE VICTIM vs the family members who said screw the victim

    Death to apostates. There’s your barrier right there.

      And even tacit approval. Betcha that’s also “stopping people from reporting family and friends who they suspect of being drawn into extremism.”

        Only sociopaths and psychopaths volunteer for totalitarianism. Everyone else stuck within its clutches is there because of fear.

  • It is one’s moral and legal obligation to report crime.

    Stuff “sensitivity”.

    Bigotry of lowered expectations.

    As Lawrence of Arabia said: they are a little people, barbarous and cruel.

    Everytime I see some smiling goon pointing an index finger in the supposed direction of where his imaginary moon god allah lives. It makes me want to shove a middle finger in his ignorant face

      How about a thumb and a clinched bundle of fingers?
