Common sense gets girl arrested

A TEENAGE girl was questioned by police police after allegedly making a racist remark to Asian students in the classroom.

The 14-year-old pupil had refused to take part in a science tutorial with five other students at Harrop Fold High School, Salford, after claiming they didn't speak English.

After questioning by police she was released without charge but the school say they are investigating the matter.

Her mother said: "She was not being racist. She was in a science lesson and the teacher split them up into discussion groups.

"She asked to be taken out of her group because the other five students were Asians and four didn't speak English so there was no point in her being with them. When she pointed this out to the teacher she was accused of being racist.

"The matter was referred to the community police officer based at the school and she was taken to the police station and kept in custody for over six hours while they questioned her."

Head Dr Antony Edkins said: "An allegation of a serious nature was made concerning a racially motivated remark by one student towards a group of Asian students new to the school and this country."

She was asked to be placed in another group so she could learn and that’s racist? How is she supposed to discuss when they are put into discussions groups and she doesn’t speak their language? That girl had common sense and if she was racist it was the right thing to do. It’s complete madness.

Those none English speakers shouldn’t have even been in the school until they learned English in their own time with their own money.

Apparently it was “an allegation of a serious nature”. You mean a student was actually using some sense no thanks to Labour? Wow. That is serious. Better call the storm troopers.

If that is what passes for serious then they would probably have a nervous breakdown or a heart attack at the behaviour of normal pupils.

A Jawdropper if ever there was one.

At what point was a crime committed?

The teacher ought to be thrown out and the head master sacked
