Business class passenger on BA flight racially abused stewardess because he wanted 'white girl' to serve him, court hears

Business class passenger on BA flight racially abused stewardess because he wanted 'white girl' to serve him, court hearsA business class passenger allegedly racially abused a stewardess on board a British Airways flight, demanding that he be served by a "white girl," a court has heard. Peter Nelson, 46, became irate after being woken up by Sima Patel-Pryke while flying business class on a 11-and-a-half hour BA flight from Heathrow to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, jurors were told. The "red-faced" married dad-of-three allegedly said: "You Asians think you are better than us, I don't want to be served by you lot, I've paid your wages for the last 20 years." Isleworth Crown Court heard Nelson, who lives in a £1.15 million five-bed detached house in Ascot, Berks, reduced the stewardess to tears after he "shouted very loudly" at her and another cabin crew member, Sam Buchanan, in the jet's galley. Nelson, who has been an external consultant for GlaxoSmithKline pharmaceutical company in the UK for nearly 20 years, allegedly "targeted" Ms Patel-Pryke before he was threatened with arrest. Cabin crew got a restraining kit ready to use on him, the jury was told. He was flying from the UK to Brazil  Credit: SWNS Michael Tanney, prosecuting, said: "It's no mere mischief to say he bullied and ranted and shouted. "At one point, after a sustained targeting of her, she begins to back away in fright and became tearful." Citing Mr Buchanan's evidence, he said: "Nelson subsequently demanded services in the future only from the white member of the new. "He accused the defendant of shouting very loudly to add to the menace that he was exuding. All deliberate say the crown. That was when the white girl reference was allegedly made." Mr Tanney added: "It's no trifling complaint that one has misbehaved on an aeroplane at 3,000ft to the extent that a restraining kit has been made ready." Mr Tanney said Nelson's claims that he never used "racist language" were a "conspiracy theory". Lauren Sales, defending, said: "Mr Nelson accepts he was tired, petulant, churlish. "He said, 'He didn't want that one serving him, he wanted another one' – maybe words that you and I might not use to speak to cabin crew, but certainly not racist. "The prosecution put it to Mr Nelson, 'oh, you were drunk – that's why you acted in this way,' but we know not a single one of the prosecution witnesses said Mr Nelson was slurring. They did say he had the boozy breath. "It wasn't white one, it was as Mr Nelson explained, he only wanted to be served by 'her'." Nelson denies one count of racially aggravated abuse on the flight on June 2 last year. The trial continues.

Texas Prep School Faculty Abused 15 Students Over 3 Decades, Investigation Reveals

Texas Prep School Faculty Abused 15 Students Over 3 Decades, Investigation RevealsReutersThree staff members at an elite prep school near Houston, Texas, sexually abused 15 students over three decades, according to the results of a 15-month investigation released on Thursday by the school’s board of trustees.The investigation at The Kinkaid School, which currently has over 1,000 students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, involved interviews with at least 58 people by private security firm T&M; Protection Resources. The school announced in May 2018 that it had hired the company to probe allegations of sexual misconduct between the late 1960s and early 1990s. The board of trustees’ summary of the investigation’s findings was published in full by ABC 13.“We are deeply disappointed by the school’s failure at times in its past to provide a safe and secure environment, and we offer our most sincere apologies to those students who suffered as a result,” said the board of trustees in a statement on Thursday. The company concluded that one faculty member committed sexual misconduct, including inappropriate touching, with eight students between the 1960s and early 1970s, according to the investigation. Those students were all between the ages of 10 and 13. Family of Slain University of Utah Student Lauren McCluskey Files $ 56 Million Lawsuit Against SchoolIn a second case, another faculty member engaged in inappropriate touching, attempted to sexually assault a student, and solicited students to engage in sex acts between the late 1980s and early 1990s, according to the report. There were six student victims of that faculty member, ranging between the ages of 14 and 17.A third faculty member engaged in “an inappropriate relationship,” which involved physical contact and sexual interaction with a 16-year-old student in the 1990s, according to T&M;’s findings.T&M; also found that the prep school’s senior leadership was made aware of one of the instances of misconduct toward a student and failed to terminate that faculty member, instead implementing “remedial steps.” The other two staff members were immediately terminated following the allegations.The investigation included interviews with alumni, current and former faculty, staff, administrators, and others, and Kinkaid said in its report that the school “provided the investigators with unrestricted access to school-affiliated individuals, files and other school resources.”“We affirm our deep gratitude to the survivors and witnesses who came forward, and we pledge our continued commitment to students, parents, faculty and staff, and alumni to promote educational excellence, personal responsibility and a safe and respectful learning environment,” the board of trustees said in its statement.Kinkaid reported the findings of the investigation to local authorities but “made the decision not to disclose the names of the three former faculty members,” according to the board. Survivors were purportedly notified in advance of Kinkaid’s plan to release the findings.“This behavior is simply not tolerated at Kinkaid today,” the school said, noting that T&M; did not uncover any allegations involving current faculty or staff members.“We as a school community can and will do better to protect our students.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
