446 Barihawk Poor lighting conditions. You mean darkness, in which a white person in a lime green jacket would be more visible than a black person wearing white. Really shitty police work.
73 ISiupick Step 1: Commit crime Step 2: Run from the police Step 3: Drive into an area populated mostly by black people Step 4: Watch a whole block get nuked as you escape unnoticed This is pretty much how it looks with all those news stories. Why the fuck are cops so retarded sometimes?
230 gnovos > An internal investigation by the Metropolitan Police concluded that the arrest had been reasonable and no misconduct proceedings were necessary, “So tell me, officer, why did you arrest a black man when the suspect you were told to find was white?” “Cuz I arrestud thuh bad guy?” “Good enough, this investigation is complete!”
390 Mute_Moth These stories are getting really hard to stomach these days. Because when you really look into them, part of you hopes there's some small detail, some little tidbit they didn't mention, that makes the whole situation sound less bad. But no. It's just about always, "well we were after a bad guy and that guy was black and in the area, sooooo....?" And then internal investigation goes "yeah nah, it was fine, nothing went wrong here, totally reasonable. Here's some vague excuses why it was fine."
49 JeffersonTwighlight- When I lived in Camden I witnessed a white guy scoping out cars, so took some photos and rang the police, giving a description etc. My neighbor, a black dude also noticed and stood near by to put the dude off. Police showed up and grabbed my neighbor and the white dude slipped off. If I hadn’t had the photos it wouldn’t have gone well. So this story doesn’t surprise me at all.
521 holdfast666 I was honestly surprised when I read it was UK police and not US. Edit: should have been obvious it wasn't the US when I realized the suspect wasn't killed.
41 Bid325 When I was a sophomore in college I had my moped stolen from the the parking garage of my apartment building. Queue the beginning of my junior year and I see a homeless man pushing my scooter (I knew it was mine because I did some stupid paint job of red and black camo and the front fender was mismatched AND the brand was a knock off that was taken over by another company so there’s not many on the street), he had a grocery cart and like 10 bikes and bike parts in it pushing it down the road. I stopped him and demanded he give me my moped back and he said fuck off it’s not mine and hustled down the street. I considered leaving my car and getting physical but realistically he could be dangerous and I have no way of getting it in my tiny sedan anyway. So I call the cops and give them a description of this white guy incredibly specifically, I wait 30 minutes and they contact me saying they pulled over a black guy on a green scooter wearing black when I specifically described a white man with a brown shirt, brown ragged hat, a grocery cart, a red and black camo scooter, and several bikes attached to them. The culprit got away and I never saw my moped again. It made me incredibly angry at their racism and incompetence and sometimes I wonder if I should have just taken my moped back, I never took the key off of my keychain. On the one hand he needed it more than me, but my dad was kind of a deadbeat and that was the first time he tried to step up and support me in college and it got stolen within a week of having it. And the cops pulled over a black guy, absolutely ludicrous.
8 englad Nice to see the IPCC have investigated and overruled the polices investigation declaring the police at fault
42 Americatcp Sterling work chaps, nice to see racism is still tantamount on both sides of the Atlantic
9 nas360 "Their control room relayed a description of the suspect as a white man wearing a light green jacket, blue jeans, flat cap and a black rucksack, saying he was standing in front of an off-licence." The black rucksack in the description must have confused them.
25 thudly And here I got shit earlier today on reddit for arguing that there actually is racial bias in the police forces of the nation. Buddy tried to convince me that if blacks would just stop committing so much crime, they wouldn't have all these problems. I don't know what bothers me more. How stupid that thinking is, or how prevalent.
