Aussie Police told to Show Tolerance for Wife Beating

LGF points to this article in the Herald Sun about the Australian police being told to be "understanding of the traditions, ways of life and habits of Muslims."

And it gets better:
They are told it would be appreciated in cases of domestic violence if police consult the local Muslim religious leader who will work against “fragmenting the family unit”.

If I were a cop I would have to respond to such silliness.

"I understand the traditions and habits of wife beaters. Unfortunately for wife beaters it is against the law in our country to actively practice some of their traditions. We must either be respectful of all traditions or none. In my case, my people had a tradition of the local male population escorting wife beaters out into the woods in the middle of the night. The government made that illegal too since most of them were never heard from again, so now we just arrest them. If you will agree to be respectful of my tradition I will happily be respectful of theirs."
