from Daily Express:

SOUTH Yorkshire Police told residents to report “non-crime” hate incidents sparking a furious reaction from thousands of bemused Twitter users.

More than 5,000 people have so far commented on tweet posted by the force with many openly mocking the attempt to curb comments that are not illegal.

The force initially asked people on Sunday to take action against hate crimes, which include attacks on race, religion, sexual orientation and disability.

But in a follow-up tweet, it said: “In addition to reporting hate crime, please report non-crime hate incidents, which can include things like offensive or insulting comments, online, in person or in writing.

“Hate will not be tolerated in South Yorkshire. Report it and put a stop to it.”

Paul Joseph Watson said: “The UK has a rampant violent problem, yet people are being told to report ‘offensive or insulting comments’ that don’t even equate to hate crimes. Absurd.”
