A police sergeant has been removed from public duties because he told a black football hooligan that he stood out like a sore thumb in a white crowd because he was black and it was recorded and went viral on the internet. Ludicrous.

Should be have said that the person concerned is IC3, which I think is the official designation of black people used in the police. Would he have been suspended if he had said the the person was ginger, or a red head or blond or even abnormally suntanned? Is it now an offence to describe the colour of a person's hair or skin and use it as evidence against them?

World has gone barmy, especially on the internet.
