Being non-British, I read a story like this and think “wow, those British cops must have literally nothing at all to do.”
And then I remember that there are an estimated 1,000,000 little girls who have been abused by Pakis, and only a handful are being arrested. And then I feel stumped.
Police have launched a hunt for three youngsters who blacked up as Golliwogs and the Jackson Five for a town’s summer parade.
Police Scotland has confirmed it is carrying out an investigation after complaints over the Wick Gala, in Caithness, Scotland.
Donna Plowman, who chairs the Wick Gala Committee, said yesterday: “Police approached us on Monday as they were making inquiries into certain participants after receiving concerns about people dressing up as Golliwogs and the Jackson Five.
“On the night in question, none of the organisers saw these participants as we were busy elsewhere running the float parade.
“We will have to discuss what has happened as a committee to see how we can go forward from this.”

The police probe centres on participants who were dressed up as Gollys and the Jackson Five during the traditional parade of decorated floats and foot collectors through the centre of the town on Saturday.
Officers contacted the local newspaper which was unable to help them identify the youngsters.
Pictures of the Gollys have been posted on Facebook and Twitter as well as Caithness.org.
Wick Gala Committee has also been contacted by police as part of their probe.
Mrs Plowman added: “Wick Gala is a charity fundraising event and if we start dictating to people what they can and can’t go out as it could lead to the end of the gala completely.
“This will be a matter which will be discussed, where we might have to look at setting out guidelines.”
Participants register to take part in the parade on the Friday night where they also pick up collection tins. However committee members are not told in advance what participants plan to dress up as.
Mrs Plowman said the aim of the committee is to organise an event where people can enjoy themselves.
She said: “If we said to people they can’t go out as famous characters such as the Jackson Five, it will be difficult to know where you stop dictating,” she said.
“If we start dictating what people can come and dress as, it could make things even worse.
“I don’t know if it will get to the point if people would have to produce a picture of what they are coming as before they take part.”
Britain: The no-fun-allowed country.
Unless you’re not White. Then you can have any kind of fun you like – even if it involves drugging and gang-raping 11-year-olds.
