If Travellers break a law and are dealt with as you and I would be dealt with then they are not being discriminated against and the protected status does not apply. If a Traveller assaulted me then I'd expect the criminal justice system to be applied to him equally. Do you know this does not happen? This is something you should take up with criminal justice enforcers. You should question the police about why they did not take action.Yes, but if they break a law they aren't being discriminated against. For example, if someone assaults you, that person should be arrested & prosecuted for assault. Instead, what actually happens is the perpetrator then says "I'm a member of the travelling community" & then gets protected by the same legal system he has just crossed. Summing up, if a man breaks a law, he should be dealt with as a law breaker, & not as a protected minority. If he chooses to go outside the law, he should not then be able to seek protection from prosecution through his status as a protected minority, an unlawful act is just that, irrespective of who it is committed by.....
