Racist thug whose shameful attack on street busker was caught on camera by TV crew claims: 'I'm a nice guy really'
FRANCIS Muir was eventually jailed for the sickening attack on the African street entertainer, known as Melo, in Glasgow city centre but last night he insisted he was…
this guy went up to a street busker here in glasgow and, out of nowhere, started to yell at him about how he’s making thousands from everyone else’s tax dollars, and proceeded to call him a ‘black bastard’ while his friend physically assaulted him (or was prepared to die trying). they were both arrested, with muir being jailed for ten months and his friend being given a fine.
now muir is complaining that he’s the victim here, he’s done his time, and that no one will hire him because he’s a racist asshole. which, by my count, probably means he’s now living off of the benefits he (wrongfully) assumed melo the street busker was ‘making thousands off of.’ muir is also insisting that he’s actually a really nice guy and not racist at all, that this was just a one time thing, despite the fact that the reason he got ten months jail time instead of four is because he also assaulted an asian police women on a separate occasion, resulting in 6 more months in the slammer. a real nice guy, right?
the one thing that i thought while i was reading this, though, aside from complete disgust that this exists in my city, is the fact that this guy was jailed for 4 months for verbally assaulting someone. and i think about what would have happened if america had similar policies for racist crimes. i wonder if trayvon martin or jordan davis might still be alive. i also look at the title of this article, and think about how in america, the ‘thug’ in this article would have been melo, for defending himself. but in this instance, the ‘thug’ is frank muir, who attacked melo for no good reason.
