‘I’m not sending a lady to prison for this’: Karolina Szumko, student, 18, spared jail after racist slurs during Notting Hill club rampage.

Our thanks to Ian for this. Excerpts:

A photography student who went on the rampage after being turned away from a Notting Hill club for being too drunk was spared jail after a judge [Adrian Turner] told her: “I’m not sending a lady to prison for something like this”.

Karolina Szumko, 18, had drunk half a bottle of vodka when she attacked staff at the Notting Hill Arts Club, hurling racist slurs at police officers and aiming kicks and punches as she was dragged away in handcuffs.

Even after her arrest, Szumko, who is in her first year of a photography degree at Kingston University, continued to rant at police, calling them “British p*****s” and telling them: “You are going to f***ing die, f***ing racists, pretend to be white but wish Christmas to Muslim people.”…

“I hope you are horrified, it horrifies me”, he [the judge] said. “Racially abusing and attacking police officers and security people, all in a public place, and that’s the result of drinking far more vodka than was good for you. [How much vodka IS good for you? We should be told.]

“I dare say you were not aware of what was going on, and I accept what happened wouldn’t have happened apart from drinking, you are genuinely sorry. [Ms Szumko is clearly not responsible either for drinking the vodka, or what followed.]

“I’m not going to send a lady [my emphasis] to prison for something like this.”

A ‘lady’? Somehow I think that if the drunken 18-year-old student had been a man, he wouldn’t have said this:

“I’m not going to send a gentleman to prison for something like this.”

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    To paraphrase (slightly) Scarlett O’Hara, she ain’t no lady.

    • Mike Buchanan

      Agreed. But what a dreadful message the judge sent her with that word. Essentially, telling her she won’t be held properly accountable for her actions, solely on the grounds of her sex.

      • Elizabeth Smith

        Which is appalling. Drunken women are far nastier than the majority of drunk men.

      • Lawrence Newman

        In my early twenties in a nightclub, I got slapped by a deranged blonde right in front of a bouncer. He saw everything. She then tried to claw my eyes out and punch me and I just grabbed both her wrists and held her there. The bouncer threw me out.

        White knights are as big of a problem as the feminists. It’s hard to believe that Western male officials used to order that women be burned at the stake. Talk about going from one extreme to another.

      • Shrek6

        You cannot give too much credence to any historical source. There have been ideologues and jackals throughout all history, who have changed facts prior to or as they are put in print. Lies are told everywhere and this has been happening since the beginning of Mankind.

        Burning witches at the stake is a great tale to make movies out of or for femtards to use as yet another weapon against innocent men today.

        This is one reason why I have been steering away from providing proof of my claim, because how can you trust the source, knowing the existence of such a high level of corruption that has existed for thousands of years.

        I wouldn’t believe that they burned too many women. Not a chance. There are far too many men out there who would at some point take down a regime in a blood bath civil war, if that practice went on too long. I’ll bet the history books have been cooked and the story heavily embellished upon.

        White Knights haven’t changed over the centuries and neither has the evil of women. It’s always been the same. The only difference is, feminists now rule govts and law, and they have given women permission to behave like this and know they will never be punished for it.

      • Lawrence Newman

        oh, it wasn’t common, but it happened.

      • William Gruff

        Men were burned as well. Don’t forget that.

      • Lawrence Newman

        And a lot worse.

  • I’ve long argued for the right of the general public to remove incompetent or corrupt public officials from office. Adrian Turner shows that the need is now more pressing than ever.

  • Lawrence Newman

    Is that a nose stud I see in the top picture?

    The progressives would call me prejudiced and judgemental for saying this, but here it goes:

    Avoid any girl or woman who has a nose stud, nose ring, tongue piercing or lip piercing. Because there’s, I would guess, a 99% minimum chance that she’s some sort of deranged loony. Of course, there are always exceptions, but I’m a great believer in heuristic principles.

    I make judgements and discriminate based on long and sustained pattern recognition. I feel it’s my public duty to warn men about these types. It’s not their fault, it’s the culture they’re raised in. Kids are brainwashed by the Cathedral and at the same time allowed to do whatever they want due to liberal parenting.

  • Marty

    Clearly,the judges, police chiefs, and all other relevant authorities are still practicing the ‘ladies and gentlemen’ code of conduct. Unfortunately, this type of tradition, if practiced in the 21st. century and after full emancipation of women, translates into a full blown discrimination against men and even boys. The gentleman tradition is a great one, but belongs only in societies where women are strictly non working wives and mothers. I hope more men will start to realize it and act accordingly.

    • jb

      You say the “Gentleman tradition is a great one” but it has always been exploited. For example in Victorian times when wives stayed at home husbands were held legally responsible for their wives crimes and debts. Thus a woman could deliberately break the law knowing her husband would be held responsible This gave unscrupulous women great power.

      • Groan

        Indeed this was actually an innovation of the Victorians. As the ladies of the new bourgeoisie were horrified at the numbers of women in gaol, they pressured through philanthropic and religious organisations to reduce this by making male family members responsible.. I’m afraid Georgian England was actually a lot less “gentlemanly”.and many women found themselves in Gaol or “transported” for debt, petty crime etc. Difficult to be accurate but about 25% of the prison pop was female in the Georgian era.

      • Lawrence Newman

        I think he means it was mostly great. I’m struggling to believe husbands were punished for murders their wives’ committed.

      • Marty

        jb, I did not know that husbands were responsible for wives’ actions in Victorian times. Well then it further confirms that this was not a suitable social norm. And it isn’t today either. There is no reason why this type of behavior,especially by public officials should be tolerated. Giving women more lenient treatment, for being ladies, needs to be outlawed and punishable by law, as it is nothing less than anti-men discrimination and is not democratic.

  • Slowcoach

    It’s at times like this I’m most embarrassed about my male privilege.

  • archer

    There is, is there not, a document from the Ministry of Justice viewable on line telling judges NOT to sentence female offenders as harshly as male ones?

    • Mike Buchanan

      Hi archer. I strongly recommend an article by William Collins:


      Your specific question is covered in the section titled, The Laughingly Named “Equal Treatment Bench Book”

      • Groan

        Yes its so Orwellian. A whole range of stuff that means the exact reverse of what it says.

    • Groan

      There is its part of the Corston Report implementation.

  • Shrek6

    This woman should have been locked up at least for the assaults she committed on all those people. Spitting in the face of someone is a dangerous act, if you happen to suffer HIV or some other transmittable disease. If you get the spit in someone’s eyes, they may very well contract the disease and be handed a death sentence. Not to mention her slapping and kicking.

    Then comes all the verbal racial abuse. If she were a man that idiot judge would have had no qualms in locking her up. He would have berated the offender and sent him to prison for a year to learn his lesson, plus pay the money to the victims.

    This judge is nothing but a weak pathetic Purple Poodle White Knight. It is disgusting to watch such a pathetic display of a weak man bowing to a pretty bit of skirt. Sickening actually!

    As for the ‘lady’ accolade. I never call any female a lady. I don’t do that for men either.

    The accolades of ‘gentleman and lady’ are reserved for rare cases. When you can establish that the person is of high moral character, is a loving caring and charitable individual who does not stoop to the low level human rights abuses as most others do, someone who would bend over to assist a filthy drunk in the street who is wet with their own urine, but also be able to rub shoulders with the upper class of society in a humble but forthright manner without fear of being lesser than them.

    Someone with real quality character, I will call a lady or a gentleman, but I have to have experienced these qualities by witnessing them and through testimony of others. If I don’t know them, they are simply a man and a woman.

    The problem today is, femtards have brainwashed almost all women into believing that they should or must be referred to as Ladies. Virtually none of them actually deserve that accolade.

  • William Gruff

    This judge’s chivalrous treatment of a woman accused of a racially aggravated offence contrasts with that of the judge who dealt with the far less offensive and threatening outburst of Emma West.
