Worldwide police brutality

In Sange Grande, Trinidad: 12 cops charged for burning man.
  1. Woman SRP Giselle Skeete
  2. acting Insp Kenneth Rampersad
  3. acting Cpl Allan Khan
  4. PC Anil Mootoo
  5. PC Keron Nanan
  6. PC Joel Boodoosingh
  7. SRP Ryan Williams
  8. PC Ashki Charles
  9. PC Marvin Mendosa
  10. SRP sergeant Glen Elder
  11. acting Cpl Ravi Doon
  12. Cpl Nicholas Vialva
Charges against these 11 were laid indictably and they were not called upon to enter a plea:
  • Skeete, Rampersad, Khan, Mootoo, Nanan, Boodoosingh, Williams, Charles, and Mendosa, were charged with misbehaviour in public office.
  • Elder and Doon were charged with perverting the course of public justice.
Vialva, however, was charged summarily for failing to act after receiving information.

He pleaded not guilty to this charge.



Then we have the April 4, 2015 shooting of Walter Scott by North Charleston Patrolman 1st Class, Michael Thomas Slager. 





Now watch this clip from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” which dealt with such systemic police racism and brutality in an episode called “Cased Up” that aired in 1991.
