[Ed. – It’s come to this.]
A security guard who had “a bad feeling” about Manchester Arena terror bomber Salman Abedi has admitted that he ignored him because he was “scared” he would be “branded a racist”.
“I felt unsure about what to do,” said Kyle Lawler, who was 18 at the time of [sic] radical Islamic terror attack, describing the bomber as “fidgety and sweating”.
“It’s very difficult to define a terrorist. For all I knew he might well be an innocent Asian male,” Lawler explained at a public inquiry investigating the attack.
“I did not want people to think I am stereotyping him because of his race.
“I was scared of being wrong and being branded a racist if I got it wrong and would have got into trouble. It made me hesitant.
“I wanted to get it right and not mess it up by over-reacting or judging someone by their race,” he said.
