"This is shocking. Isn't this against the law? It's not the role of the police to make cultural judgements."

It certainly is both of those things. But the real question is: did it happen?

I find it very difficult, if not impossible, to believe that the police reacted in such a way to the reporting of a serious crime like the one depicted. I think the atheists should watch they don't start spouting the kind of whining propaganda that they deride the religious for.

Where was this crime reported? Who were the police officers who reacted in that way? To which force do they belong? Curiously, there is never any detail attached to these stories. It smells of victimhood to me. And I suspect it's simply a lie.
