#285829 - 22nd Jan 2009 1:23pm Racist jailed for foul mouthed rant at cabbie

A RACIST was jailed for eight months after a Liverpool cabbie recorded his foul-mouthed rant and drove him to a police station.

Anthony Kirk subjected the driver to a four-minute tirade after getting into his cab near Lime Street.

The 40-year-old became abusive after asking the Turkish taxi driver where he came from.

During the racist rant he described the 33-year-old cabbie as a “f*****g foreigner”, a “kebab-eater” and a “monkey”.

He accused him of “taking our benefits” and spat in the taxi while repeatedly punching the perspex screen separating the driver from his passengers.

Little did he know the cabbie was recording the abusive attack on his hands-free mobile.

Instead of taking Kirk to his Anfield home he drove straight to St Anne Street police station on the outskirts of the city centre, and informed on-duty officers.

Kirk, of Elm Bank, Walton Breck Road, was cautioned and arrested for racially aggravated threatening behaviour.

On Monday he appeared at Liverpool crown court where he was locked up for eight months.

He pleaded guilty to the offence which happened at 4am on December 5.

Today Det Sgt Cheryl Rhodes, from Merseyside police’s Sigma hate crime unit, said: “We take hate crime seriously and will not tolerate it.

Not that I agree with that behaviour, but he got 8 months for a verbal assault....

Ive seen less handed out for actual assault think

Whilst I can appreciate the court may have wanted to make an example of him, but now who is draining the country with the cost of keeping him locked up omg

Would community service and a fine not have been more suitable think
