Court fined to Scotsman over drunken threat to “kill Muslims”


A Council Worker who placed an early morning call to the emergency services claiming to be the National Front and threatening to “kill all the Muslims” after watching footage on the Charlie Hebdo murders in Paris. Vincent Hannah, 51, was drunk at the time of making the call to emergency services and claimed he was a member of the far-right National Front. Hannah told the operator answering the call, “Muslims that’s killed Muslims and will only kill Muslims.” When the operator asked if Hannah needed help with an emergency, Hannah said “The police don’t give a f*** about this country, and you dinnae, because all the Muslims in the country, I’m going to kill them.” Police traced Hannah to from the number he made the phone call from and arrested him that evening. Hannah’s defence lawyer told his client had been upset after reading of the Paris Attack and that he had consumed alcohol while taking medication, which he should not have done. Hannah was “ashamed” of his conduct saying “These are not views that he holds, he doesn’t know why he made these comments.” Lawyer added Sheriff Court fined Hannah £400, and said: “The emergency services are far too busy to cope with people like you. But I’m encouraged that you don’t hold these views, because terrorists are one thing and Muslims are quite another.”.
