It takes a lot of confidence to be this ridiculous.
I am currently working on an independent documentary investigating over 1500 deaths in police custody in the UK. This is a project in partnership with filmmaker Troy James Aidoo.
On Sunday 3rd May 2015, Sheku Bayoh was killed by up to 11 police officers in Kirkcaldy, Scotland. His family want answers.
A report by INQUEST, published on 22nd October 2015 revealed that since 1990, there have been at least 1532 deaths in police custody, or following police contact, in the UK. Of this number, more than 500 (in some reports 800) victims came from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, despite people from minority backgrounds making up only 14% of the UK population. In the last 24 years, no officer has been punished for these deaths. In this documentary we investigate this ongoing culture of violence, brutality, and gross police misconduct in the UK.
