- Paris Brown QUITS her £15,000-a-year youth commissioner role after police launch investigation into Twitter rant @ Mail Online
Excerpt: Britain’s first youth crime commissioner quit yesterday after her own police force launched an investigation into racist and homophobic comments she posted on the internet. Paris Brown, 17, wrote the offensive messages on her personal Twitter account, which also included boasts about her sex life, violence, drinking binges and drugs. The teenager, who was appointed to the £15,000-a-year taxpayer-funded position only last week, had given a tearful apology about her behaviour.
