17 Year old Youth Police and Crime Commissioner exposed for racist, violent, homophobic tweets

The teenager who was controversially appointed as Britain’s first Youth Police and Crime Commissioner (yes really – this actually happened) has apologised for a series of racist, homophobic and ASBO worthy tweets saying: “I was naive, I was idiotic and I do regret it.”

Paris Brown, 17 who was bizarrely hired by Kent Police and local Crime Commissioner Ann Barnes in a worryingly misguided attempt to ‘connect wiv de youf’, was invited to explain her use of words such as “pikeys” and “fags”. The tweets, which also included references to her taking drugs and violence, were posted by the teenager before being appointed to the 15,000 pound a year role.

One would hope that any teenager advising the police would have at least a nodding acquaintance with sex, drugs and alcohol or what on earth is the point. And despite some fairly manufactured outrage that she is no paragon of virtue, what is really disturbing is her attitudes towards minorities.

Describing all immigrants as ‘illegals’, she has written such heartwarming tweets as ‘ ‘F****** hell why are the people from Direct Pizza so difficult to talk too!! IT IS CALLED ENGLISH. LEARN IT.’ And that was two months ago – not in some distant murky past.

On Made in Chelsea males, she said ‘Everyone on Made in Chelsea looks like a f****** fag.’ Which apart from use of the word ‘fag’ is a terrible slur on homosexuals.

She goes on to rail against pikeys, applaud people for violent acts and generally behave like someone off the Jeremy Kyle Show.

Meanwhile, her ‘mentor’ Ann Barnes told the Today Programme

“I have allowed Paris to have some time to herself because she really had a difficult day yesterday,”

“What she said was deeply offensive, the content of the language I do not condone at all – [it was] absolutely and utterly horrible.

"Social networking is probably a no-go area for most adults but it is life and death for young people. And they do say and they do … the most appalling things that none of us would condone.”

She added: “I am not saying that Paris is typical of every young child. We did not access her personal Twitter account – maybe we should have done.”

Yes you probably should have done – what exactly did they do – read her very, very short CV?

Ms Brown insisted that she was ‘an ordinary teenager’ “Young people have a different language to older people. The term faggot was not meant in a homophobic manner. To young people it means silly, idiot or stupid. I don’t want to be judged on tweets that were written a long time ago. They are stupid tweets but they should not affect my future career. I want to be the voice of young people.”
