    While that may be true how many specific allegations of a racial beating or death with a racial side to it have their been? If you check the IPCC website there are lots of press releases about allegations of assault but on whites or non-ethnic minorities. They don't get the high profile media attention that the non-ethnic minority cases get giving the impression that there are more racially aggravated cases than there actually is.

    I'm not denying that there are cases just that there may be a warped sense of how many of these allegations there are, and of them how many can be deemed credible.
    The IPCC website is full of crap. Tbh before I used to think that people who said the police covered up these kind of things were idiots, bit like people who say 9/11 was done by Jews. However, after going to a protest and someone presenting the data to me, apparently quite alot of asian/caribbean descent have died in police custody since 1980 and not one officer has been found guilty.

    I will try and find this information, obviously it won't be on the IPCC website.

    A large proportion of the police are criminals in uniform,
    That's nonsense, however I would like to see you back that up with evidence, if you

    A biker mate who also happens to be a copper told me an interesting tale of one guy who started yelling in his cell and when checked he had a cut above his eye. However, he was in the cell alone at the time but subsequently claimed he had been beaten up in the cell by an officer. During his arrest he also claimed he had Hep C and threatened to spit on the officers' faces. Make of that what you will.

    Google death in custody then. If the police are pursuing a dangerous driver and they crash and die its a death in custody. If someone has a heart attack in their cell gets taken to hospital and dies there its a death in custody.

    I dont see how any of them can complain really, it does seem very suspicious that he wouldnt answer the door and then ran away from them. He mustve been doing something dodgy for guns to be involved anyway, no?
    I dont understand why people think police are hellbent on killing people :confused:
