Let's work together to #StopPoliceBrutality
« on: December 19, 2014, 01:18:09 AM »
There have been many incidents of police brutality towards Nigerians in South Africa, both reported and unreported. The following article summary highlights such an incident which took place early this year where a Nigerian man was being brutally attacked by uniformed police in South Africa. The video of this incident, where the Nigerian man was stripped naked in the streets of Cape Town went viral.


The summary of the video on Youtube:

Cape Town, Kensington Area, South Africa - The video in question was uploaded on Facebook, the video shows police and security guards trying to arrest a Nigerian man. The man did not seem to be resisting arrest but it seems as though the police were struggling to arrest him. It is unknown why the man was being arrested but the person who recorded and uploaded the video on Facebook tried to contravene via her office window and was threatened by the police.

Unfortunately, Cape Town has a very bad record of police brutality and there has been many incidents like these in the past."

Foreigners are easy target by the police in South Africa. Something has to be done. This is getting too much. People must know/understand their rights and the SAPS must hold corrupt cops accountable.
