Stop & Search of a Muslim man in High Wycombe

.

Brother was stop and searched by a police officer in the Castlefield are of High Wycombe on the basis that the person who he was in the car with was suspected of being involved in the sale of drugs and that he was seen by an officer of putting his hands down his trousers! He was subsequently subject to a humiliating strip search at the police station - nothing was found and no further action was taken. The driver of the car who was marked was not searched, neither was the vehicle and no further questioning of the amount of money that he had on him. So WHY the strip search?

Sadly this is the day to day reality of young Muslim men, of Pakistanis and young African Caribbean people in the town. Incompetent policing, neglect and brutality a daily occurrence. Justice4Paps with many these individuals and families are calling for a public inquiry into policing in the town in connection with these incidents. Please sign the petition here:
