A gang of schoolboys dragged a cyclist from his bike before kicking him repeatedly as he cowered in the road - just because of his ginger hair.
The four teenagers also subjected the 38-year-old to a torrent of vile abuse in the relentless attack and left him needing major surgery for a fractured jaw, a court heard.
Manchester Magistrates Court heard how the gang had surrounded the victim at rush hour in the citys center, and yelled ginger **** at him before the attack at a set of traffic lights.
A witness said the boys were almost dancing on him, while a motorist who sounded his horn in a bid to stop the attack called it relentless.

Wonder if anyone can hold back the daywalker jokes for this one.
Schoolboy gang locked up for savage attack on a man for being GINGER after they confessed to their teachers
Foul little scally gangs roam free in the UK. They are never held accountable and it’s nearly illegal to defend yourself.
Want to bet that they were all”Asian”.
No wonder exorcisms are up.
Can someone explain what’s up with the “ginger” hatred in England? It seems like we regularly hear stories like this coming from there.
I’d say British kids are some of the worst scummiest youth on earth. You’re less likely to get attacked by kids in Pakistan and Somalia than you are by kids in Britain.
And bear in mind, this is what the libs want here as well. They’ve already made the youth of America as dumb as they can possibly be. Next they’ll gin up violence that will make the Occupy antics look like child’s play.
“...I still cannot bite properly and require dental work.’”
It’s unclear if this is a result of the attack or simply affirmation that the victim is a Brit.
This is just plain bizarre. Until now, I have never heard of mobs looking for redheads to beat up.
In Britain, you can go to jail for hate crimes against all the minority groups, ethnicities, sexual deviants, Muslims, etc...
So, now they’ve had to find other things to go after.
I’m taking bets that the Yutes’ names included “Mohammed”.
In before the South Park pictures
I’d bet plenty of money that they weren’t. Muslims hate all non-muslims pretty equally, while it is the native Britons who tend to jump on the “ginger” hate bandwagon.
I’ve heard from a Brit of my acquaintance that it’s because gingers are stereotypes of Scots and of course, the Irish.
Read what Brits had to say about the Irish (and the Scots) a couple of hundred years ago....you’d think you were reading Nazi propaganda about “subhumans” and “inferior races”.
Apparently, the prejudice is still there, but now the underlying reason for the prejudice has been forgotten; now it’s just a prejudice against folks with reddish hair.
Cue the hate-crime squad.. they called him the "G" word!!!!
Any pictures of the Perps?
Who ever heard of redheads being called “ginger” except in the last couple years?
The mildest acceptable penalty for attacks like this would be life with no possibility of parole. I’d prefer that these kids find themselves in a George Zimmerman situation. It’s sad to give up on kids, but it’s far sadder to see decent people maimed.
Yeah, that'll work. [rolls eyes]
As late as the 1950's in the US northeast it was not uncommon for businesses to put out 'Help Wanted' signs with the word 'NINA' on them. NINA stood for 'No Irish Need Apply'.
Sadly, it cannot be assumed to be the usual suspects. Gingerphobia is primarily a native English disease, rather than a Muslim one.
I understand this wasn’t even a thing in the US until a certain South Park episode introduced the concept...
The court was told that the four teenagers, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had given themselves up to police after confiding in their teachers following an appeal for witnesses.
A 17-year-old from the Cheetham Hill area of Manchester pleaded guilty to common assault and was sentenced to a four-month detention and training order.
Two others, a 16-year-old from Cheetham Hill and 17-year-old from Fallowfield, admitted grievous bodily harm with intent and got six-month orders.
The fourth, also 17 and from Fallowfield, pleaded guilty to grievous bodily harm with intent and assault by beating in relation to a passer-by who was also punched. He was sentenced to a six-month order.
slaps on the wrist, probably get counseling for the slaps too
Manchester has some pretty dodgy areas. I want to know if these were just the usual hoodlums or if they were immigrant ‘boys’
Cue the M.I.A. video.
“Ginger” Baker was the drummer for the 60s band Cream (among others).
His real name is Peter Edward Baker and he’s now 74 years old.
did they get a few months time-out? probably get counseling and government benefits for the psychological trauma of juvenile hall too.
I apologize to all U.K. Freepers, but LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!
Also all English boys who read books in the 50’s and 60’s (and a 1960 TV show) know that Ginger was one of Biggles sidekicks in the W E Johns series of children’s books...:^)
In this case Ginger was male.
Is that what 'ginger' means?
Isn't Prince Harry a redhead??
Might he be next?
Did south park start the ginger slur?
