Police admit failure to treat Chinese man's murder as racistThe family of a murdered Chinese man Simon San received a public apology after the police admitted that officers had failed to treat an attack by a gang of youths as a racist murder and hate crime.
Simon San, a delivery driver was set upon outside his family's takeaway by gang of white youths and killed with single punch by John Reid, aged just 16 years old. The police ignored witness evidence that he was called a 'chinky', previous hate attacks on simon's relatives and previous racial incidents involving the accused, as a result police refused to treat it as a racist crime and Reid was caged for just five years.
