Exposure recently put together a film about police stop & search. It’s a huge issue in London. With tensions running high after the Mark Duggan verdict, we thought it right to try and bridge the gap between young people and the police. The film is called Fed Up and you can watch it here. Anyone […]
Since the Duggan verdict there has been a lot of talk from politicians and the police about rebuilding a trust with the community. It’s obvious that this line would be peddled. They want the community to forget about the details of the Duggan case. The problem is that we can’t forget. The issues with police […]
Woop, woop! That’s the sound of the police! The siren of a fed car can provoke a negative reaction in some young people; those that know what stop and search means, and especially those, perhaps, who pulled a hoodie on that morning.
