UK: Drunk Derby man shouted racist, antisemitc abuse after Paris attacks

Via Derby Telegraph (h/t CST):
A DRUNK man launched a racist verbal assault on a passer-by and two policewomen the day after the Paris terrorist attacks.

Suicide bombers and gunmen killed 130 people in a series of calculated attacks in the French capital last November.

Southern Derbyshire Magistrates' Court heard how David Gregory, 46, of Gerard Street, Derby, had been particularly angered when seeing the news.

He had been drinking the following day and his partner phoned police to say he was missing and that she was concerned he could get himself into trouble.

Gregory was walking down Etwall Road, towards Mickleover, at about 4.30pm on Saturday, November 14, when he saw his victim jogging towards him.

Gregory had been drinking and launched a foul-mouthed, racist attack at the man, who ran off and called police.

Lynne Bickley, prosecuting, said: "He thought the things he was saying weren't nice things to hear and the last salute he had in his hand was in the shape of a fist.

"Police saw him standing on the pavement swaying, believed to be drunk.

"He said the female police officers looked young enough to be his daughters."

Mrs Bickley said he then made a number of anti-Semitic comments, as well as other remarks about people with dark skin.
