Not amusing but amusing

Gay people have been urged by the Metropolitan Police to avoid “dimly lit areas” and “listening to loud music” following a suspected homophobic murder.

Ranjith “Roy” Kankanamalege, 50, was found dead on August 16 in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, where a crime scene is still in place.

Mr Kankanamalege’s injuries were caused by blunt force trauma, a post-mortem confirmed, and the death is being treated as a homophobic hate crime.

Wandering around back alleyways might contribute to your being attacked if you’re gay but of course it has no influence at all on your possibility of being raped if you’re female.

I have got that all the right way around, haven’t I?

  1. I’m trying to parse what “listening to loud music” could possibly have to do with Alphabet-soup “hate crimes”.

    Well, other than that bad taste in music at high volume may incite the neighbours to have a bit of a chat. But that’s pretty universal, isn’t it?

  2. @Grikath
    I also pondered that, but came to the conclusion it was loud music through headphones, which would result in being oblivious to the environment.

  3. Perhaps he was practising his moves in the cemetery but one of the supertitious locals thought he was a djinn.

  4. ‘Wandering around back alleyways might contribute to your being attacked if you’re gay but of course it has no influence at all on your possibility of being raped if you’re female.’

    I think they call this male privilege.

  5. “That’s homophobic, officer. Gays are entitled to go clubbing”

    Seems they are entitled to get clubbed as well. Given the location almost certainly a member of the RoP who doesn’t want his graveyard becoming a location for sodamitic rendez-vous.

    How well will Plod play this round of victim poker–or is it bingo? If there are no more such killings I would bet on it remaining unsolved. Least said soonest forgotten.

  6. Speakinas someone who lived in London for years, dimly lit areas are dangerous. s are Tube stations, tubed, late night buses… makes no difference if you’re a shirt lifter or not. Anyone wearing headfones on the streets of London needs their head examined. Situational awareness is critical. Good way to get a cyclists front wheel inserted up your arse, they are.

    Dunno. What was the victim wearing at the time? If it was the usual LGBT+ rainbow alliance kit then it would have marked him out as a deviant to your anti-homersexualist brigade. Guess that’s mostly RoP’ers nowadays.

    Personally, I keep my faggotry in the bedroom rather than parade it around on the streets, but that’s because I think it’s a personal matter that shouldn’t be shoved in the faces of children and the like.
