Anger over Sharma killer’s sentence…

DESPITE describing Brij Sharma as “a Paki bastard”, Stephen Darren McGlone was not judged to have been racially motivated when he killed the popular shopkeeper. Sharma’s family are distraught at this news, as well as the 17-month sentence handed out to McGlone for manslaughter. It has prompted Suneil Sharma (no relation) – a former Commissioner for Racial Equality and current Policing Board member – to question if the courts and police are pushing the issue of racially motivated crime.
