If there was case of child abuse and rape involving ONLY Muslim men from a particular ethnic background, then after the various disclosures concerning planted or tainted evidence relating to people from ethnic minorities, I can well understand how more caution would be required before pursuing a particular investigation and prosecution- especially in any area where there may be the potential for urban unrest.
This doesn't mean I condone child abuse or the police 'going easy' on Muslims or any religious or ethnic minority- I don't.
Ah. So not calling people n*ggers or camel jockeys or queer c*nts is to blame. Not the justice system's own lamentable record of failed prosecutions and overturned convictions where people from minority communities are concerned...Being PC is what prevented action being taken

In my humble opinion, this is precisely the sort of politicking the law-enforcement system needs to have none of.
In the moment law-enforcement officials begin to think of the sircumstances and and consequences of law-enforcement actions with regards to people based on who they are: whether it is social, economical or cultural background, a strong, rapid erosion of the concept of the primacy of law occurs.
This erosion then harms ALL facts and walks of life, as law structures our behavior as people in societies.
The Cardiff 3 was policing at its finest. The police set out to find and arrest one blood-covered white man. They came back with three entirely unbloodied black men.
