The hate crime fiasco in Scotland

Scotland passed a law against so called hate crimes. As you can see it is a very objective law.

What has been the result of this new law?

Almost 8,000 hate crimes were reported to Police in just one week. Scotland has much the same population as New Zealand, so how many more Police would we need if we had the same response.

Let’s say a police officer needs two hours to assess and deal with each complaint (on average). One officer could do 20 a week, so you’d need 400 more officers just to cope with the people complaining.
