213% Rise In Disability Hate Crime ‘Fuelled’ By Benefits Propaganda, Say Campaigners

Deplorable hate crimes against people with disabilities have risen by a shocking 213% since 2007/08, new figures reveal.

Figures from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) show there were 574 reported cases of disability hate crime in 2014, up from 183 in 2007/08.

A total of 4,000 cases of disability hate crime have been brought by the CPS since the offense was first introduced in 2007.

However, Stephen Brookes from the Disability Hate Crime Network said the worrying figure is likely to be much higher, because too many instances of disability hate crime or either not reported or are overlooked.

“I believe the number of people actually suffering is equivalent to the number who report religious and race hate crime each year – 60,000″, said Mr Brookes.

  1. I now prefer to suffer extreme pain and days of exhaustion rather than use my wheel chair to visit supermarkets because of the abuse i get.

      • Yes, the abuse usually happens in the supermarket aisles if I am left alone – then I get kicked from behind, hissed insults also from behind, physically pushed away from the food, rammed with trolleys (which have injured my hands), etc. I shudder to think what would happen if I ventured into the street alone.
