Here's a story for you guys.
I was due to go to court when i was 16 years old for criminal damage charges at my school - charges of which got dropped, but none the less i missed
the court date and the Police visited my house at 1.30 in the morning, on a school night. I was fast asleep in my bed when i heard loads of commotion
down stairs, so i went down stairs and seen that my mum was arguing with the police.
Bare in mind that i was 16 at the time guys, 4 Police cars and 2 vans came to my house - making a total of around 11 officers at my house - all for
criminal damage charges that was caused in school after a fight broke out between a massive amount of pupils. My mum was arguing said they had no
right to come take me and they're was no need to search all the house with this amount of officers. While i was been put into the Police van, i seen
my other get picked up and dragged by the police to another van, by 5 police officers. (my mum is a cool mum and stands up for everything thats right,
she wasnt been disrespectful to the officers, she just just told them that what they're doing is wrong and that they needed a warrant)
Anyhow I got let out after nearly 30 hours, because i had to wait for my mother to come out of the cells as i didnt have nobody else to come collect
me. When my mother came out she had broken both her wrists and she still is unable to carry anything to this date with her left arm. She pressed
charges against the police, but in the end - because we couldn't afford a proper solicitor and had to get a duty solicitor - after 3years my mother
got a letter saying that the item spent chasing the case has now taken too long and that its going to be dropped.
So my mum got two broken wrist after the police came with 10+ officers to a 16year olds house for something that a group of people did....in
Due to my colour i have been a target for 'random' street stops. Iv been arrested and put in a cell for over 15 hours because i fitted the
description of a black youth. I got let out with an apology, but really - thats not good enough.
When in town i have seen multiple people get violently abused by police officers who are on a power trip. When a police man sees a fight, he jumps in
their batons blazing not caring who instigated what treating both individuals as if they have killed his mother.
The time has come where we need to film everything that they do, then maybe we will usher out this feeling that they have of been untouchable - When
they know normal citizens have the power to film and press charges- they will start acting right, treating people as they would want to be treat
