#UPDATE DO YOU THINK THE POLICE OFFICER WHO PULLED A BENTLEY-DRIVING DJ OVER RECEIVED A SLAP ON THE WRIST?
Do you remember when a london DJ got stopped by the police just because he was black in a bentley? Well here’s a recap and update on the situation.
DMO Deejay, the London DJ filmed himself driving around the West End in his Bentley, where he works at the DSTRKT nightclub in Piccadilly. While filming he got stopped by the London police, and while filming he caught the police office saying the following:
‘This isn’t discrimination. Predominantly, the criminal profile of people who do it are black people.
‘So naturally, if we see a car full of black lads, they’re maybe dressed in gangster-style clothing or whatever, when they’re driving down there, they’re getting stopped.’
As of today, there has been an investigation on the officer and the watchdog investigation found there was ‘no evidence that the officer’s comments were discriminatory or targeted’. The officer admits to using “clumsy” language, and has since received training.
Scotland Yard, the officer, has since apologised following the reactions of millions of people who watched the video on January 5, 2017.
