Police Taser race relations advisor

Police officers have tasered their own black race relations advisor in the face after he was mistaken for a wanted man.

Judah Adunbi aged 63 who works to smooth over relations between the police and black community was tasered.

Officer remain claim during the video, the officers explain to the Adunbi during the video that they believed he was a wanted man naming the person they believed he was.

They asked him for his details which he refused to give, He began shouting at the officers and they asked him to remain claim as they would have to arrest him.

During the video he does not comply with the officers and attempts to enter his house to avoid arrest at this point officers use Taser to arrest what they believe is a wanted man. At no point during the video did Adunbi attempt to correct the officers and say he was Judah Adunbi and was employed by the police as a race relations advisor.

Officers ask for his name and he refused and he attempted to enter his house. Moments later officers shout ‘Taser’ and fire a taser round which hits his face.

Adunbi is one of the founding members of the Independent Advisory Group set up by the police within the BME community within Bristol.

When asked for his name by police officers he replies: “I’m not telling you my name. I’ve done no wrong.”

Officers then follow him to his gate and taser him to the ground.

Adunbi has said “At first you don’t accuse someone of being someone else. You ask questions.

“The first thing they should have done is come to me in a polite manner. The way they approached me – they were accusing me. That is wrong.

“I felt that was it because of the way I fell back. The way I fell backwards on the back of my head. I was just paralysed. I thought that was it. I thought they were taking my life.”

Chief Supt Jon Reilly said: “After reviewing what happened, we voluntarily referred a complaint about this incident to the IPCC.

“Although we don’t have to refer an incident in which a taser has been discharged to the IPCC, we want to be as open and transparent as possible.

“I’ve met with Mr Adunbi and we had a constructive conversation. We’re aware of concerns within the local community and we take these concerns very seriously.

“I understand the community are going to have concerns. And we’d really like to answer those, but as there’s an ongoing investigation that’s very difficult for us to do.

“I want to reassure the community the whole incident was captured on body-worn camera. Both officers were wearing it. And we’re determined to understand what happened.

“We work really hard to work positively with all communities and I see no reason why that should change.”

Rude note left on Ambulance while paramedics deal with an emergency

Published

on

Paramedics have returned to their Ambulance to find a rude note on the windscreen claiming they waited 45 minutes for their drive to be unblocked.

If you need to leave your house urgently please come and knock on the door of the house where the emergency is happening, and if we can we will move the Ambulance.

Have you been angered by an emergency service vehicle blocking your drive?

The Paramedics returned to their ambulance in Leicester and were urged to “have some consideration when parking?

Surely that is the last thing going through a Paramedics mind dealing with a 999 call out, oh let’s wait a moment while we park this Ambulance more considerately while someone is laid moments from death on the floor when minutes matter in a life or death situation.

Paramedics dealing with an emergency in Leicester were left a note urging them to “have some consideration” about their parking.

The note “Please have some consideration where you park the ambulance!” the note said. “This is not the first time.”

East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust criticised the “rude” note and said the crew parked as “considerately as possible” in the early hours of the morning.

Lee Brentnall, paramedic and ambulance operations manager for Leicestershire, said: “It is so disappointing to see that a rude note has yet again been left on one of our ambulances.

“This upsets our dedicated ambulance crews when they are trying to help our patients and do their job.

“Leaving a note will not resolve the situation as we are unlikely to see it until we are leaving in the ambulance to take the patient to a hospital or to go to our next job.”

Mr Brentnall added: “Our crews are approachable. If you genuinely need to leave your house urgently and we are blocking your access, please come and knock on the door where the emergency is taking place.

“Sometimes we will be able to move the vehicle, for example, if we are treating a patient but they do not need both of us there at the time.

What did our Twitter followers say? 

Karen Canner tweeted Police Hour saying “We moved our car and invited an ambulance to park on our drive to easier reach our neighbour who was in need and had a skip on her driveway. would anyone be angry at a person having a medical emergency being helped? i just don’t get it.”

Silent Running said I cannot understand the mentality of people complaining, i’m sure they’d be all for it if they were the ones being saved, the selfish, non-empathetic bastards

You can block my entrance or back passage anytime

Rachel said “Erm yeah no I havnt and wouldn’t even if my car was stuck I’d wait they’d not do it unless they had no choice”

Well to be fair what kind of person would actually be angered by an ambulance blocking them in, Have we really lost the basic ability to communicate.
