MP films exchange with police. Officer complains she ‘can’t see what’s in the back of your car’
Labour MP Dawn Butler has been stopped by the Met Police for what she believes was ‘driving around and enjoying a Sunday afternoon whilst black’. The police claimed she was stopped because she was driving her car outside her home area. The MP filmed the ‘cancerous’ incident:
Ms Butler said she was certain that she was stopped because of racial profiling, with one officer in particular behaving in an inflammatory manner. The Met has yet to comment.
