Oh, this is horrible.  Hope the student's family can be properly compensated.


LONDON - A Chinese student died on Thursday after being hit by an unmarked police car in Birmingham on Wednesday, local media reported.

The 24-year-old Chinese was hit by a black BMW outside the Newtown shopping center on Wednesday, the BBC reported.

He was taken to hospital with severe head and back injuries, but died on Thursday afternoon.

And I have to admit, police force in the UK is notoriously racist.

So the implication is the guy was knocked over deliberately?

No, I wasn't saying that!

I just hope the investigation could be done in as objective a manner as possible, in light of the police force's recent racial abuse scandals

A bit of research found out this:

"The unmarked police car was responding to an emergency call and had its blue lights and siren on."

In Europe (maybe elsewhere, too) the rule is, that ambulances, fire engines and police cars with acustic sirenes and warning lights turned on have the right of way "over every other vehicles or pedestrians". If you approach a pedestrian marked crossing and you hear the sirene, you have to stop crossing the street, you have to watch out where the sound comes from and then you have to give that vehicle the right of way. If the person was already in the middle of the street when he got aware of the sound, the police car of course has to slow down and even to stop if necessary.

An investigation in that incident is ongoing right now.

It is not a matter of racism.

Racism is to suspect racism when you know better.

This is not a case of racism.

Racism is when one accuses another of being racist even he is aware of the real facts leading to the incident,which means the poster himself is a racist and those who support his false claims.
