The peer had been heading home through the streets of south London not long after her son was stabbed to death and realised she was being followed by a police car.
“They continued to follow me and then they flashed me to stop,” she said. “They said I needed to get out of my car. I said: ‘I’m a woman, it’s late at night and I don’t want to get out of my car.’”Why not? There's two police officers there, you're perfectly safe. Just get out of the bloody car like everyone else!
There were two officers, a man and woman. “Eventually I got out and they were telling me that they know the pub is not too long closed and that I was driving erratically.
“If anyone knows the black community, especially a woman, we are not coming out of pubs and this was after twelve [midnight]. So these are the issues that people in the black community are suffering from.”I thought it was wrong to make assumptions about the behaviour of people based on their race? But you think they should have done so?
Gosh. It's almost like you want to have your cake and eat it, isn't it?
