British girl arrested for wanting to sit with English speaking students

Britain continues down the path to totalitarianism, proving that Orwell's 1984 does have more prophetic value than we thought. From the Daily Mail (via Colossus of Rhodey and Joanne Jacobs):
A teenage schoolgirl was arrested by police for racism after refusing to sit with a group of Asian students because some of them did not speak English.
Important note: in Britain, "Asian" is a PC slang for Pakistanis, not Chinese, and it's quite possible that these were Pakistanis and Muslims.
Codie Stott's family claim she was forced to spend three-and-a-half hours in a police cell after she was reported by her teachers.

The incident happened in the same local education authority where a ten-year-old boy was prosecuted earlier this year for calling a schoolfriend racist names in the playground, a move branded by a judge "political correctness gone mad."

Codie was attending a GCSE science class at Harrop Fold High School in Worsley, Greater Manchester, when the incident happened.

The teenager had not been in school the day before due to a hospital appointment and had missed the start of a project, so the teacher allocated her a group to sit with.

"She said I had to sit there with five Asian pupils," said Codie yesterday.

"Only one could speak English, so she had to tell that one what to do so she could explain in their language. Then she sat me with them and said 'Discuss'."

According to Codie, the five - four boys and a girl - then began talking in a language she didn't understand, thought to be Urdu, so she went to speak to the teacher.

"I said 'I'm not being funny, but can I change groups because I can't understand them?' But she started shouting and screaming, saying 'It's racist, you're going to get done by the police'."
The teacher sounds like she's badly in need of one herself; she sounds hysterical, or, shall we say, like an Islamist with a hair-trigger temper!
A complaint was made to a police officer based full-time at the school, and more than a week after the incident on September 26 she was taken to Swinton police station and placed under arrest.

"They told me to take my laces out of my shoes and remove my jewellery, and I had my fingerprints and photograph taken," said Codie. "It was awful."

After questioning on suspicion of committing a section five racial public order offence, her mother Nicola says she was placed in a bare cell for three-and-a-half hours then released without charge.

She only returned to lessons this week and has been put in a different science class.

Yesterday Miss Stott, 37, a cleaner, said: "Codie was not being racist." "The reaction from the school and police is totally over the top and I am furious my daughter had to go through this trauma when all she was saying was common sense."
I think the teacher owes an apology and should be fired from her job. Then again, this is Britain, which, just like Mark Steyn once said, has almost hilariously descended into dhimmitude, so I doubt the teacher will get more than a slap on the wrist. It's no wonder so many native British are leaving the country these days, since the PC madness has really reached its full height.
