It shows how fucked up they are when they do shit like this knowing they're wearing cameras!!

How confident do you have to feel that your actions will be covered up for you to do that?

That poor child.

And people claim this is not a racist country. 🙄

And they wonder why so many black people do not trust the police. I am so sick and tired of this. There are too many bad apples in the police force. Too many racist police.

@IncompleteSenten that was my thought.

Thank goodness for the body cam. I hope the family sue!

That makes me feel absolutely sickened.

My DC are both under 6, but in future, walking down the wrong street at the wrong time, this could easily be one of them.

Thank goodness for the bodycamera; despite that I see the policeman tried to pass off punching a child in the face as an accident Confused what a wicked, evil person he is.

@Starseeking you need to forbid your children from wearing dark tops and jackets from aged 10 onwards. Very hard to confuse a black/mixed-black child wearing a bright red jacket with another one. They will just have to claim while they are in proper cycling gear on a bike that they smell of cannabis instead.....

Boris and his government have a white paper on it. Britain is not racist and there is no institutional racism here.
Boris disappoints me every time!

Which oddly contradict all the reports written for the Foreign Office and are out in the public domain, and the recent one written for the Home Office that the government tried to hide so it was leaked to a journalist.

I suggest people Google/research the background of any journalist who writes things...
