A gruesome murder in France rekindles the country’s debate on free speech and Islam

  A gruesome murder in France rekindles the country’s debate on free speech and Islam Muslims in France have been pressured to assimilate into the country’s secular culture. But at what cost?History and geography teacher Samuel Paty, 47, brought scrutiny this month when he showed his 12- to 14-year-old students two caricatures of Muhammad published by the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo — the same images that in 2015 inspired jihadists to kill 11 staff members at the magazine and six others in Paris. Parents and teachers at the school, located just 20 miles outside the capital, said Paty gave his Muslim pupils the opportunity to leave the classroom or look away so as not to anger them.

BBC Newsnight understands the footage shows two attackers, one of whom makes what seem to be monkey chants directed at three women in London.

The women said officers in the initial investigation made racist assumptions about them, hampering the inquiry.

The Metropolitan Police denies this, but said it is reviewing its work.

Last week Newsnight revealed serious failings in the police investigation into the attack on the three women, all of Somali descent, on 22 December last year.

  • Racist attack investigation reopened by Met Police

Police closed the case in April, saying they had no CCTV evidence or leads.

But Newsnight found that officers failed to obtain CCTV from nearby shops or take witness statements, even from the victims, for nearly two weeks after the attack.

By the time the police tried to recover security camera footage from shops in Kilburn Lane in early January, it had been recycled - and overwritten by new material.

The Met reopened the case last week and apologised to the women. A source close to the investigation said the Met now has 21 lines of enquiry into the unsolved hate crime.

The former chief constable of Surrey Police, Bob Quick, told the programme the Met's response had been "woeful".

No, Trump hasn’t been the best president for Black America since Lincoln

  No, Trump hasn’t been the best president for Black America since Lincoln Here’s what Trump has — and hasn’t — done for Black communities in the past four years.Over the past year, Trump has shouted this from the lectern at campaign rallies and from the balcony at the White House as a play to Black voters, a countermessage to his racist rhetoric. The phrase has morphed over time, starting in the fall of 2019 as something more restrained — “We’ve done more for African Americans in three years than the broken Washington establishment has done in more than 30 years” — and rising to the bold “No president has done more for our Black community” this year.

Shocking video shows a male passenger threaten a young Asian man who 'intervened in his racist tirade against an elderly Indian woman' on a Melbourne train. It shows a man in a blue jumper threaten a young Asian man. A witness has claimed the young Asian man intervened a racist attack .

( Racist /bigoted people freaking out in videos are allowed, but being a racist in the comments section will result in a ban.) He has such a persecution complex, everything looks like an attack to him. That's exactly how I imagine Trump supporters react after they say something racist and get called

'Greater urgency'

Niyad Farah, 38, was kicked unconscious in the attack and taken to St Mary's hospital, Paddington for treatment. It was categorised as racially motivated GBH with intent - a very serious hate crime.

Ms Farah told Newsnight that one officer asked her if she had been "buying anything" from the attackers. She believes he was implying they were buying drugs and knew the men.

She said she thought the officer believed "it was almost impossible for a racist attack to happen in that area".

The Met denies racist assumptions were made and says it accepted from a very early stage this was a vicious attack by strangers. But in response to Newsnight's investigation it apologised for failing the women.

In a statement, the Met admitted the incident "should have been escalated and prioritised at an earlier stage" adding "there was a delay in the necessary follow-up enquiries being made just after the incident, and this hindered the subsequent investigation".

"This shouldn't have happened, and we are sorry for letting the victims in this case down. This was an appalling attack which should have been investigated with greater urgency," the force said.

The Met has also referred itself to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

It confirmed it has received new information relating to the attack.
