From The Telegraph
Hassan Butt, 29,  
who called police officers "white redneck hooligans" has been found guilty of making racist remarks.

Butt, who once admitted having claimed he was a terrorist to make money from the media, was convicted of committing a racially aggravated public order offence by District Judge Diana Baker at Manchester Magistrates Court.
He made the remarks after police arrested his brother, dentist Omer Butt, in a row over parking. Pc Christian Allanson overheard Butt say loudly into his mobile phone: "'I'm just here with these white redneck hooligans'."
He told the court Butt also said: "'Where's my brother, you're not the Gestapo'."
Pc Allanson said: " . .  due to the fact we were white police officers. I believe it was a very offensive comment."
Butt also taunted officers by asking if they were BNP members . . . He also asked officers who arrested and searched him: "Do you like feeling Pakis up?"
Judge Baker told him: "You demonstrated towards the officers hostility based on their membership of a racial group. . . I take seriously any form of racist abuse and feel the courts must strive to protect people."
The little specimen was fined and ordered to pay costs.
