WE GOT HIM!
A statement issued on Sunday afternoon read: “We were alerted to a series of racist messages sent to a footballer today and after looking into them and conducting checks, we have arrested a boy. …
Show Racism the Red Card chief executive Ged Grebby added: “Show Racism the Red Card applaud Wilfred Zaha for again calling out racism on social media.”
“This racist abuse is a hate crime and needs to be investigated by the police. A criminal record and five-year ban from football awaits the culprit.”
How many thousands of young girls have been gang raped and sex trafficked? The police swoop in to arrest a 12-year-old for racism and charge him with a hate crime for Instagram trolling?
