  • arrow_drop_down Aberdeen, 11 October 2016 - Verbal abuse / insults

    Some school kids (3 of them) started shouting and calling me and my daughter refugees and asking us to get out of Scotland. The way the incident started was by me telling them to stop throwing stones at a pub.

    Did anyone speak up or offer support?

    I told them to get a dictionary and to get an education, as they were supposed to be at school at the time. Nobody offered support and my daughter was terrified.

  • arrow_drop_down Dartford District, 10 April 2017 - Verbal abuse / insults, Threats / intimidation

    Two teenagers started shouting racist abuse at a man and his young son (about 4 or 5 years old) after the man politely asked them to stop spitting onto the floor of the bus we were travelling in. Also told the man and son that they would follow them off the bus, call their fathers and get them to physically attack them.

    Did anyone speak up or offer support?

    I told the boys to stop verbally abusing the man and son, to which they shouted abuse at me too and ignored me. I then went to the driver of the bus and explained the situation. The bus driver stopped the bus and went to boys and told them to stop otherwise he would kick them off the bus.
