This comes as no surprise - UK police are admitting to protecting radical Muslims, minimizing "honour" killings and ignoring forced Islamic marriages.
The force admitted trying to frame Channel 4 on trumped-up charges of inciting racial hatred.
The row exploded after an undercover C4 Dispatches probe filmed blatant proof of Islamist extremism in Britain’s mosques.
The programme filmed clerics as they preached homophobic threats, anti-Jewish rants and diatribes against women.
It shockingly reinforced MI5 claims that fanatics are stirring dangerous anti-Western sentiment against this country.
Yet instead of acting to protect the citizens of Birmingham — Muslim and non-Muslim alike — the police rubbished the evidence and accused the programme makers of deliberate distortion.
West Midlands Police were caught red-handed putting the interests of the so-called "community" ahead of public safety.
But their failure to impose law and order, protect society and dispense impartial justice is not confined to the Midlands.
In the words of West Yorkshire ex-police chief Keith Hellawell: "This case is symptomatic of a broader set of failings: A loss of nerve, a warped sense of priorities and, in particular, a culture of weak-minded politicisation that should concern us all."
Insidiously, police treat minorities differently to everyone else.
As a result, hate-preaching fanatics are tolerated and protected.
Forced marriages remain common despite Labour’s vehement stance on women’s rights — and pleas for help from entrapped Muslim women. In some groups, "honour" killings are still a way of life and death.
