Charges Dropped Against #KillAllWhiteMen Tweeter Bahar Mustafa | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Charges Dropped Against #KillAllWhiteMen Tweeter Bahar Mustafa

British police have dropped all charges against Bahar Mustafa, 28, the student welfare and diversity officer arrested last month for tweets that included the hashtag #KillAllWhiteMen.

Mustafa, who works for the independent Student Union at London's Goldsmiths' University, was due to appear in court on November 5. But in a recent letter to Mustafa, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) stated that it had decided to drop the charges "because there is not enough evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction." . . .

. . . Mustafa has stated that her tweets were "not professional," but that #KillAllWhiteMen and similar sentiments are merely "in-jokes and ways that many people in the queer feminist community express ourselves." Though it's clear within their context that Mutafa was not literally calling for the genocide of white men, that didn't stop someone from reporting Mustafa to the London Metropolitan Police Service for racially-motivated malicious communication.
