But will they be charged with a hate crime? Not likely, apparently, in the UK, only white people get charged with hate crimes, never minorities.
William said: “I could hear them shouting racial obscenities but I ignored them at first and carried on walking towards the old tennis courts.”As I turned around to shout Snoopy, a couple of the gang, who had broken off from the rest, kicked him in the ribs and then in the face before running back to their friends.
“I thought he was dead. The poor dog had been kicked into the air and was just lying on its side.
“As I walked off I could hear them shouting: ‘Carry on, we’ll do to you what we did to the dog’. I was in fear of my life.” William said he picked his pet up and cradled it in his arms before making his way to the nearby Asda store to call for help. He added: “I was so shaken up I could hardly talk. The woman I spoke to at Asda said Snoopy was the fourth animal to be attacked up there.”
William said he waited at the store for an hour for a police officer to arrive but then had to leave to get Snoopy to the vets. On his return home he contacted the police again and was assured someone would visit him soon. However, he was still awaiting a response.
Inspector Dave Mangan at Accrington Police Station said, “We understand that to this man it was an important call, but unfortunately we don’t have limitless resources and we had to prioritise. We would like to be able to send someone to every crime as soon as it happens but it is not always possible.”
