Did the gentlemen in question actually hear him make the comment? If not, who dobbed him in, his partner?

But Hughes told Westminster Magistrates he had simply remarked on a man's gait and posture while discussing the theory of evolution with PC Costas Dakoutros

"I had engaged with PC Dakoutros, we were discussing about evolution or terms of that kind," he said.


Patrol is that boring, is it?

During the discussion he also said black people were closely related to "chimpanzees and Neanderthals," it is claimed.

When asked if he had used either of the words, he said might have used the former, but did not even know what Neanderthal meant.


"See? I'm too dumb to be racist."

The former personal trainer added the he had "many, many, many" Asian friends, as well as black friends, Irish friends and Australian friends.

*facepalm.gif*

Snark aside, I was inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt until I got to this bit. It might be possible he's just an idiot with a penchant for tasteless jokes and a touch of unexamined Pommy White Man's Burden, rather than being a full-blown actively disciminatory racist.

He was just talking about people who annoy him.

This racist bastard said black people sometimes have a unique gait and described it as best he could? Don't even bother with the arrest, just execute the motherf*cker on the spot. Spreading racist lies like this is worse than the f*cking holocaust. Next thing you know, he'd be publicly criticizing the president and other elected officials and us liberals can't have that kind of unapproved speech floating around.

Everyone is racist. Some admit it. This guy is pushing it too far however. I would expect law enforcement officers to be especially circumspect about the population they protect.

Then again, I wonder why we're sensitive about "monkeys" applied to some groups and not others. We're all descended from the same Simian line, I thought? It might be time to get rid of this taboo, which might in itself remove the stigma.

And that white people look like chimpanzees.

Is it racist for him to classify by skin color?

Anyone walking down the high street in any of England's more football-friendly towns will be met by the sight of these lumbering hulks, all forehead and wrists pointing forward. Colour of skin doesn't even enter into the equation and in fact it's particularly prevalent among the white, Sun-reading working classes. I defy anyone not to make the comparison to a less evolved primate species. I firmly believe that anyone doubting evolution simply needs to take a look at some of these shaved gorillas. They are clearly a step or two behind the rest of us. Their jaws have also not formed sufficiently to enunciate language correctly, there's nary a consonant in sight.

Maybe it was some kind of obscure Cockney rhyming slang. Like you know how monkeys are always dancing around and playing like they're doing a little jig? Maybe "monkey jiggers" is rhyming slang for...um, on second thought, maybe not.

This sort of thing will be coming to the United States very soon. Always watch what you say.


The article started talking about one cop from Essex whose last name started with H, and then clumsily segued to another cop from Essex whose last name started with H. It got a bit hard to follow who was insulting which visible minority co-worker.

When people say that they have many many Asian or black friends as a defence for racism, I find that they usually have none.

I used to have a friend like that. He was a complete idiot and genuinely thought he was making funny jokes.

He came across as more like Alf Garnett.

Some African Americans DO walk strangely. But, that's just to keep their shoes from flying off; and their pants from falling down.

At first I was thinking this was a typical story of an American cop busted for being stupid. Only this time it involved England, where rednecks are not known to exist. Mmm, this feels a little different. Almost like other people around the world can be stupid too.
