Racist Bristol police Taser their own race relations adviser
Police in Bristol Tasered their own race equality adviser, 63-year-old Judah Adunbi. Racism runs deep in the British police force, as it does in the racist Tory government.
Adunbi,was walking his dog near his Bristol home on Saturday when he was ‘mistaken’ by police for a wanted man.
He argued with officers who demanded he give them his name before he was tasered and knocked to the ground by the force of the weapon.
The grandfather, who is a co-founder of the Independent Advisory Group the City, thought he was going to die.
No Justice No peace. No Racist police.
Racists everywhere – including in the police – feel empowered by the racism of Donald Trump and the racist campaign to get the UK out of the racist European Union
British police have killed at least 11 people with Tasers in the past decade

Marchers demand justice over deaths in police custody
Four hundred people marched on Saturday 29th October to remember those who have died at the hands of the police and to fight for justice.
The march, which went down Whitehall from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street, was organised by the United Families and Friends Campaign.
Many of the families fighting for their loved ones were in attendance, growing in number from last year. According to Inquest, the number of deaths in police custody currently stands at 1,578 since 1990.
Marcia Rigg, sister of Sean Rigg who died in police custody spoke at the rally as did Margaret Smith whose son Jermaine Baker was shot dead by police while he sat in a car in Wood Green. Becky Shah from the Hillsborough Justice Campaign told the crowd: “Never give up fighting… if we can do it, then so can you.”
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) was slated by speakers for its total inability to hold murderous police to account.
