'ENOUGH IS ENOUGH'

Its first priority will be to review how domestic abuse cases are handled by Greater Manchester Police (GMP) in light of its damning inspection report by the police watchdog on the service it provided to victims of crime.
"During this year... we will carry out a public consultation on how to effectively introduce the recording of misogynistic incidents by GMP, in the same way as they record racist and homophobic incidents," the spokesman said.

"This will ensure that abuse that is aggravated by misogyny is fully investigated and victims of it are offered the same protections as those afforded to all hate crime victims."

Andy Burnham said the 10-year plan had been "deliberately brought forward" because of the "huge" public reaction to the "tragic death" of Sarah Everard.
He said he wanted the area's "streets, workplaces, schools, universities and homes... to be safe for every woman".

It will see police record misogyny as a hate crime and public space protection orders used to tackle harassment.
A spokesman for the mayor said Greater Manchester Combined Authority will introduce a board, which will include survivors of gender-based abuse as co-chairs, to oversee the strategy.

He said the wider strategy would take "a whole-system approach" to tackling abuse, which would include challenging "how men and boys think about and treat women and girls" and how authority services, such as the criminal justice system, educational establishments and housing providers, could use "a gender and trauma-informed approach".
He added that "on a practical level", the plan would include "funding for specific services and projects, training and development for frontline staff and targeted public engagement campaigns".

It also will see an emergency contact system introduced on public transport, so passengers in danger can alert police discreetly and local authorities supported to use public space protection orders "that protect women and girls from harassment and abuse".
Deputy Mayor Bev Hughes said abuse was "pervasive in our everyday life, from walking down a street and being called names because of how you are dressed, or being followed, or being threatened or being attacked".
Urging people to consider the strategy and give feedback "to help us get it right" before it goes to full consultation in May, she added: "
Several other forces in England and Wales have introduced their own misogyny hate crime policies.

There isn't a bandwagon that Burnham won't jump on is there?
Maybe he should start with his mate Richard Leese.  ::)

There is something embarrassingly pathetic about men who harass a woman,  they usually pick on a woman when she's on her own which is cowardly.

"The second-highest number of domestic abuse-related incidents and offences perpetrated by officers were at Greater Manchester where 79 were recorded - which resulted in just one conviction."

I don't know which years it was related to,  I'm guessing it was when Tony Lloyd was Commissioner - would it have made much difference?

I hope that they get this piece of filth, he shouldn't be too hard to recognise, catch him and take him somewhere and just finish him.

Time was when a pregnant woman was treated with care and respect,  sadly some people don't even have the grace to stand up for them -
this particular piece of an excuse for a man should be made an example of via a lengthy sentence imo

Thankfully the police have arrested the man who pretended to help a woman who was lost in a park,  there's a photo of the man blatantly stalking her.

Didn't someone describe stalkers as 'pondlife', I'm inclined to agree but would be insulting pond life.
