Justice for Teen Asylum Seeker Reportedly Beaten at Bus Stop

Target: Claire Lindley, Chief Crown Prosecutor for South London

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the people who reportedly beat a 17-year-old asylum seeker at a bus stop.

A teenager was reportedly beaten at a bus stop in a devastating hate crime. A large group of people reportedly chased the Iranian-Kurdish teen down the street after finding out that he was an asylum seeker. Demand justice for this innocent teen.

“It started off with this smaller group of people, who were joined by between 20 to 30, and they just viciously attacked these individuals because they were asylum seekers,” stated Detective Superintendent Jane Corrigan. The attack reportedly began when the group approached the 17-year-old boy and questioned him about his ethnic background. The teen sustained serious head and facial injuries including a skull fracture and a blood clot on the brain.

London’s Metropolitan Police have arrested five suspects so far. The charges range from violent disorder to racially aggravated grievous bodily harm. The teen is beginning to make a recovery. Sign below and demand that those responsible receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Prosecutor Lindley,

A 17-year-old boy was reportedly attacked at a Croydon bus stop and chased down the street. The attack was reportedly motived by his race and ethnic background. We demand that this innocent teen receive justice.

“There was a group of roughly 10 people that was kicking and punching him, and the rest, another 10 or 20, were all just around watching. Then when they heard sirens they started to go,” stated a local resident. The teen’s two friends were also reportedly attacked, but they escaped with only minor injuries.

We demand that you take a stand against hate crimes and seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. What terrible thing has happened to societies – societies who not long ago would welcome refugees with open arms? And now they viciously attack and beat them.
    It makes me so upset to see how immigrants and refugees have been demonized and devalued by the media and politicians.
    What did these refugees – who have no money, no home – nothing – and who have been traumatized by war and suffering – ever do to deserve this treatment? It’s absolutely disgusting.

    This world is devolving into another Dark Age. Hatred, ignorance, xenophobia, intolerance-just plain stupid. They might as well hate someone because they’re blonde, have brown eyes, too tall, too short. Human beings are animals with delusions of superiority. I’m so very discouraged.

    I do understand disliking and hating terrorist, But hate some one, just because a person is from different country, religion or race IS WRONG! Yes those who hurt that kid needs to be punished!

    Ignorance, and hatred is what destroys our communities:..
    “Cleanse ye your eyes, so that ye behold no man as different from yourselves. See ye no strangers; rather see all men as friends, for love and unity come hard when ye fix your gaze on otherness….
    And in this new and wondrous age, the Holy Writings say that we must be at one with every people; that we must see neither harshness nor injustice, neither malevolence, nor hostility, nor hate, but rather turn our eyes toward the heaven of ancient glory. For each of the creatures is a sign of God, and it was by the grace of the Lord and His power that each did step into the world; therefore they are not strangers, but in the family; not aliens, but friends, and to be treated as such.” Baha’i Faith Writings
