A Reverend is being targeted by youths simply because he is Christian. His car is regularly attacked by kids between the ages of 7 and 14. The police say they cannot do anything because the children are too young, even when they drove past as the kids were smashing in his windscreen they didn't stop it.

A neighbour said:

They get targeted because they have Christian stickers on their car and sometimes they put leaflets through people's doors. Occasionally other people's cars are damaged but their car gets kicked and egged pretty much constantly.
Of course, if these were some minority ethnic group being attacked the police would put a stop to it as quickly as they could. It would also be recorded as a hate-crime and, if it were against Muslims, be flashed across the news as proof of rising Islamophobia. However, these are Christians and Christians are the majority therefore nothing is said and nothing is done. Does multi-culturalism mean equality for all? Yes - but some are more equal than others.
