Youth walks free after gang attack on priest
Metro ^ | 24 June 2008 | By SUZY AUSTIN

Posted on 06/28/2008 10:19:45 PM PDT by BlackVeil

A drunken teenager who beat up a priest walked free yesterday after the judge accepted the attack was a 'one-off mistake'.

Babul Islam was one of three Asian youths who attacked Canon Michael Ainsworth in his churchyard.

The 19-year-old punched the vicar in the head while others kicked him ' one all¬egedly shouting 'f*****g priest' ' only stopping when passers-by intervened.

His battered victim spent nearly two weeks in hospital after the assault, which prosecutor Carl May-Smith said 'had a profound effect on him'.

The shop assistant admitted being extremely drunk during the attack but denied it was religiously-motivated ' a claim upheld by Judge Glenn Brasse.

Islam and the two other assailants set upon Mr Ainsworth in March, leaving him with cuts and bruises. When the 57-year-old clergyman returned to the congregation at St George-In-The-East church in Shadwell, east London, his face was still swollen and he had black eyes.

Islam, of nearby Limehouse, deserved a prison term for his crimes, Judge Brasse told him at Snaresbrook Crown Court. But he was told 'under the circumstances' a four-month suspended sentence, paying his victim £1,000 and 100 hours of unpaid work would suffice.

In the days following the attack, the Rev Alan Green, Dean of Tower Hamlets, said there were 'faith hate' incidents in the area every month.

The UK is turning into a cesspit, not helped by judicial lunacy like this which is all too common now.

Christian persecution which results in a two week hospital stay, is taken very very lightly. We can only assume that means a hate crime is not really a hate crime in the U K if the victim is a Christian.

The judge has Brasse alright...What nerve...a poor Priest, a man of God gets beaten by a drunken bum of a youth and the kid gets off and the priest has scars and memories for life...

Sorry to see the UK falling apart at the seams..But if it’s judges fail to uphold even the most basic laws of civility, the end of Britain’s staid civilization is apparently nearer than at first look...Pity the poor citizen, knowing the law coddles criminals and lets the people suffer..That Stanley, is quite Outrageous !

The British are giving themslevea and their nation over to Islam. This is sick and disgusting. Islam deserved a 2X4 upside the head on the spot...andor several years in the slammer for his "mistake"

Mistake? MISTAKE! A violent assault that left a man in the hospital for weeks, and by three people is a...mistake?

This woman Judge deserves to be set upon by three such youth herself for her to determine the difference between assault and a "mistake".

She says he deserves years in prison and then hands out a four month suspended sentence "under the circumstances"? I am dumbfounded.

He's lucky he didn't contract MRSA in that place given the wonders of socialized medicine.

Its as if G-d is making it perfectly clear before our eyes, but we’re too blind to see it.

Why are you assigning Judge Brasse to the female sex? I decline to accept him.

“28.09.2006 | HM The Queen has appointed District Judge Glenn Clifford Brasse, to be a Circuit Judge on the advice of the Lord Chancellor, Lord Falconer. The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, has assigned him to the South Eastern Circuit, based at Gee Street County Court, London with effect from Thursday 28 September 2006.

Glenn Brasse was a member of 14 Gray’s Inn Square for many years before being appointed a District Judge at the Principal Registry of the Family Division.

14 Gray’s Inn Square wishes him the warmest of congratulations on his appointment.”

My bad. The results and the need for the Judge to feel the weight of their decision holds, male or female...but I clearly mistook the Judge for a female.

Probably it would be a extra-judicial death penalty, comprising a basement room at the local mosque, orange jump-suit, a video camera, four slimeballs wearing balaclavas and a nut-job jabbering in arab and wielding a long, dull knife.

The real question is, why didn’t any Christians come to the priest’s aid, and why didn’t they deal resolutely to these thugs, so that there would be nothing left for the courts to try and acquit?

He was drunk. It couldn’t have been religiously motivated. He’s a bad Muslim.

Definitely not a hate-crime, by definition... Can’t have hate crimes, against white males, especially if they are Christian and the guy attacking was named “Islam”. Obviously it was just a mistake.

This brings so so many issues into the light of debate:

1. Should the “priest” have been a practitioner of Martial Arts?

2. Should the un Righteous Anglican Priests bother to defend themselves at all, or would that place their Civil Service Jobs at stake?

3. What impresses more, a Christian who can surprise, or a punching bag?

Were Mr Ainsworth's feelings traumatized?

No, it’s never a hate crime when the perp is a member of a ethnic or religious “minority”: as if by some demographic/statistical magic, it ONLY becomes a hate crime, when the native Christian “Old” British have descended into minority status themselves-—on that magic day, it “could” become a hate crime, but for that to happen, Islam would have to have already gained equal legal status within the institutions of British Society, and Islam would NEVER honor the idea of “hate crimes”.
Crimes against infidels are their DUTY.
I don’t know what people expect from the British anymore.
Considering their flabby response after their buses and subways were bombed, they seem incapable of doing anything that doesn’t embolden the enemy within.

Young lady, I cannot answer your question.

The way I was raised, if the “yob” was Asian, Oriental, black, white, purple, green..whatever...

You do not kick the Priest, ever......ever...to do so means someone is going to badly injured...maybe me young lady, maybe not, presence and manpower will be felt all around...

‘Nuff Said.

It means you set upon a defenceless man, as part of a group, conduct a vicious assault, and then walk from court a free man.

A ‘one-off mistake’ ... see?

If the UK ceased to exist tomorrow, it wouldn't surprise me one bit.

With each daily court decision decided against Christianity and in favor of Mohammedanism, the British government takes one step further away from God.

Islam is an absolute perversion of everything God stands for, and the Brits are causing their own annihilation.

They can only take so many steps away from the Father before they are subsequently destroyed in their tracks.

The British leaders are sealing the doom of the society they govern.

Anytime you read "Asian Youth," you can be fairly certain it is a Moozie!

And if as in this case, the perp gets a slap on the wrist of a pass, then you can take it to the bank that they are practitioners of the "religion of peace."

If you want to see how deeply some will seek to wipe away any evidence of Islam’s misdoings, see the Wikipedia page for this church.

I recently updated it to include the following line:

“The church recently entered the news after its Canon Michael Ainsworth, 57, was attacked and beaten in front of the church in March of 2008 by Islamist youth in an alleged faith-hate crime.”

A series of trolls went through every imaginable contortion to edit it ultimately out of the story, which you can plainly see from the history. I have re-added the line, leaving out any perpetrator in the crime, though choosing the most egregious MSM source I could find.

GB is ground zero for the soft insurgency. The Islamic world goes to their political meeting every Friday and listen to the intelligence officer go over in painstaking detail all the ‘evil’ the ‘British’ have done to the Islamic world over the last century. They blame Britain for 1948 and before that, the Balfour Map of the ME. They want GB destroyed in the worst way.
