  1. And what happens when one does report hate crime and harassment to the police.

    Initially the perpetrator of the hate crime gets a caution at the station.

    Then you find that your property such as your car is either damaged or completely destroyed.

    The police then claim no evidential link can be made with the perpetrator (who may even have threatened this action within the initial abuse) and then other things will occur. and when finally when one complains again that the situation is not improving you are asked straight up if you are ‘doing this for the cause’!.

    What cause? Because I’m gay, or because I’m disabled, or because in nine years I have had eighteen cars either seriously damaged or totally written off by those local people who object to me being both of the above.

    My only cause is trying to protect both myself and my property, and to live as normal a life as possible in the circumstances

    Dear God, just what does it take to get this stopped?

  2. Nothing Showing Transphobic Hate Crime
