Boris Johnson has taken exclusive control of the Metropolitan Police Service after the abolishment of the Metropolitan Police Authority. This means the Mayor is now in sole control of the Police in London. The issues of youth violence and mentoring, stop and search, local police consultative groups, (will he close them down?), police complaints and accountability and community consultations.
Johnson does not believe institutional racism in policing exits .
How then can he tackle this problem? How will he consult with black communities in London? All these issues and more will be up for discussion. I don't think Boris has any idea of the scale of anger in black communities over the issues of deaths in custody or the shooting of Mark Duggan or the 300% increases in stop and search.
You need to register to attend and of course they have organised this consultation at 9.30 on a Sat morning in the hope few will turn up. I intend to raise these issues. I need your help - can you attend ?
Please promote and invite your contacts.
