Soapbox Sunday: The growing hostility with the police.
Time & Location
About The Event
People belonging to black and minority ethnic groups are increasingly more likely to be stopped and searched by UK police forces, Home Office figures show. Of the 386,474 stops and searches made last in 2015 58,397 were of people who self-identified as being black or black British.
This is the equivalent of 31.4 stop and searches for every 1,000 black people in the UK.
It means that black people are now 6.5 times more likely to be stopped and searched by UK police forces than white people for whom there were only 4.9 stop and searches for every 1,000 people.
With the increase of survillance, stop and searches and modern technology. What are our solutions? Are the police doing enough to stop these incidents?
Come discuss at Rumi's Cave. This is a non violent debate.
