'You will always be a n*****': Scotland Yard suspends officer for alleged racist remarks made during London riots
 Part of channel(s): London Tottenham Riots 2011 (current event)

A policeman has been suspended after allegedly calling a man a 'n*****' during the London riots.

The officer, who sources named as PC Alex MacFarlane of the Metropolitan Police, was apparently recorded by the suspect on a mobile phone as he took him into custody.

The officer is understood to have told the 21-year-old black man: 'The problem with you is you will always be a n*****, yeah? That’s your problem, yeah.'

The Independent Police Complaints Commission investigated and passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) after the man passed the recording to other police officers.

The CPS initially decided not to charge PC MacFarlane or two other officers but tonight confirmed they would assess the file again after the man’s lawyers complained.

Grace Ononiwu, deputy chief crown prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) London, said: 'Lawyers for the complainant have written to the CPS and asked us to review our decision

'I have considered the matter personally and directed that all of the evidence should be reconsidered and a fresh decision taken by a senior lawyer with no previous involvement in this matter.
'That process will be completed as soon as possible and is the procedure we often adopt when pre-action protocol judicial review proceedings are initiated.'

The Guardian reported that Mr MacFarlane also said to the man, who has not been named: 'You’ll always have black skin colour.
'Don’t hide behind your colour, yeah,' adding: 'Be proud. Be proud of who you are, yeah. Don’t hide behind your black skin.'

The officer is said to have called the man 'a c**t'.
Shortly before the recording ends, the man can be heard saying: 'I get this all the time.'
In it he tells the officer: 'Make sure you do a lot with your sixty grand, ‘cos you’re not going to get it no more, bruv.'

He then tells the officer: 'We’ll definitely speak again about this. It’s gonna go all the way, it’s gonna go all the way - remember.'

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: 'We can confirm that the MPS received a complaint alleging a man arrested on August 11 2011 was subjected to discriminatory behaviour (racial remarks); assault and oppressive conduct/or harassment.

'These are serious allegations; any use of racist language or excessive use of force is not acceptable.
'The MPS’s Directorate of Professional Standards referred this case to the IPCC who are independently investigating.
'Following the alleged incident, three officers were the subject of a misconduct investigation. One of the officers has been suspended in relation to this matter pending the result of the IPCC investigation.
'One of the officers has been placed on restricted duties on an unrelated matter and another remains on full duties.'

  • Being a racist and police officer at the same time isn't helpful in a country as diverse as England. Potentially this can blur judgement and cause injustices or much worse.....

    Police Officers are supposed to be professionals just like armed forces *should and try hard* to be. Treating people with a hostile attitude won't solve any problems.

    The Police Officer should appolgosie, claim stress and quit (but perhaps he is waiting for his possible redundancy which might be due soon due to politi More..

      Let me explain one thing. Their black President has only 526 days left in office where he protects his own. So, riots will get worse and worse the closer it is till oblama leaves, because they know they ain't gonna get away with the same shit when the new president takes office.
      Right now they riot in the same shit holes they live in. As soon as they start hitting the main white neighborhoods, people will arm themselves and begin to kill the rioters because they More..
