Liverpool MP accuses Met Police of racial profiling

Its interesting that she immediately jumped to the conclusion that racial bias played a part.  My reaction as a PC is the same as the MPS i.e. tall IC3 male in a yellow jacket had been reported or seen doing something so they stopped the man and whether the MP said she was an MP or not, they ruled him out and left.  Being an MP had nothing to do with that result whereas ruling the man out did.

The headline should actually be: 

“MP expects police to derelict their duty because of her position, then unfoundedly accuses officers of racism”.

The mind boggles at what people think is acceptable these days. Why anyone would expect Police to ignore possible suspects because of their race and taking something they say on face value is just an idiot.

Personally, I’d be stopping and speaking to anyone in a bright yellow jacket, regardless of race. Skin colour can easily be mistaken due to lighting, shadows, whatever. Bright yellow generally isn’t.
