UK: Black crime database ‘illegal’ police warned

An investigation has accused the British police of breaching a human rights law because an anti-gang database featured predominantly black, male suspects.

    Britain has been told to delete the “racialised” list of criminals by Soros-funded Amnesty International. AI called on the government “to urgently review” the Metropolitan Police’s Gangs Matrix.

    It also called for a public enquiry because black men represent 78 percent of 3 500 criminals registered on the monitoring database, Breitbart reported.

    “There is clearly a huge problem with knife-crime violence at the moment in London, but the Gangs Matrix is not the answer,” AI’s UK Director Kate Allen complained. “The Mayor of London needs to dismantle the Matrix unless he can bring it in line with international human rights standards,” she added.

    She denounced the database as “part of an unhelpful and racialised focus on the concept of gangs” because “the entire system is racially discriminatory”.

    The database “perpetuates racial bias” by “stigmatising young black men for the type of music they listen to” according to Allen. But the police defended the lists saying “evidence that someone is glorifying gang violence in a music video posted on social media can be used as an intelligence source”.

    Tottenham MP David Lammy, a Labour politician and black identity activist has questioned why “the Bullingdon club”, a white Oxford University student body was not considered by police to be a gang.

    Last month, another Labour politician Chuka Umunna said removing the word “gang” from public discourse would help solve rampant youth violence in London, because the term “reinforces the notion that they are gangsters when they are not”.

    He said authorities should treat London’s knife crime epidemic as a “mental health issue”. The maternal grandfather of Umunna, who is half Nigerian, was Sir Helenus Milmo QC, a prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials.
