I would not be surprised if British law enforcement arrested the father for “Islamophobia” and “racism.”

By Abe Hawken For Mailonline, 31 May 2017:
An angry father confronted two men he claimed took flowers and stuffed toys which had been left at a Manchester terror attack memorial.
Mark McNally, 43, was heading back from his local pub when he claims he saw the men take two bunches of flowers and a blue Smurf toy from the display.
When confronted, the men claimed they ‘didn’t know’ what the memorial was for and just thought the flowers were ‘very nice’ and so took them.
Mr McNally, from Manchester, was furious and told the pair to return the flowers and to quickly leave otherwise he would phone the police or ‘knock the s***’ out of them.
One of the men was holding a Smurf toy (left and right) and was told to put back the items they had taken by Mark McNally
He admitted he was raging after he saw one of the men holding the flowers before slowing walking away from the memorial.
Mr McNally, an engraver, said: ‘Memorials are a mark of respect and that’s widely understood.
‘I was raging inside but luckily I kept it together well. I was so angry with it all.
‘There had been a vigil at the sundial in the centre of town for the victims of the attack and people laid flowers, cards and teddies there.
‘At first, I’d had a couple of pints and I sat down facing the road waiting for my bus.
I wasn’t sure what they were doing but they were acting a bit strange so that’s when I started to film them.
‘I saw one of the guys with flowers in his hands and originally I thought he was going to put them on the memorial but then I saw them walking away with them.’
He was also helped by a passerby on the night, Tyler Willerton, who chased down the men as they walked away and took the flowers to lay back on the memorial.
In the video, the men try to calm down Mr McNally, who was appalled by their actions, by saying ‘my friend’ and claiming they simply liked the flowers.
Mr McNally added: ‘There was a younger fella who chased them and managed to take the flowers off him.
‘It just goes without saying that even a child would know what it was there for.

‘News about this tragedy has spread all over the world and everyone knows about it, so I don’t believe they didn’t know what they were doing.
‘I know they were foreign nationals, but it’s very clear that it’s a memorial even though there was a language barrier.
‘There is no instance when it would be okay to steal flowers from something like this.
‘The attack is shocking. I have children myself and I can relate it to them and can’t imagine what it would be like to lose a child in such a tragedy.
‘Even though they struggled to speak good English, I think they could understand what I was saying.
‘We didn’t have a proper conversation but they said they liked the flowers and I presume they were taking them home or something.
‘It’s something that even young children would know not to do. It isn’t like they were vandals smashing up the flowers – they were stealing them.’
