An investigation has been launched by the police watchdog after officers in Bristol tasered their own race relations adviser who, as a beacon of irony in its purest form, works to improve links between the force and the black community.
63-year-old Judah Adunibi was tasered by the feds outside his home on Saturday when officers allegedly mistook him for another man. The video was filmed by Adunibi’s neighbour, and shows him defending himself against the officers, telling them he’s “done no wrong”. He can then be seen being dragged back out of his gate before he is tased and falls to the floor.
Adunibi has sat on Bristol’s independent advisory group, designed to promote links between the police and the community, as well as having worked with the Crown Prosecution service’s local community involvement panel.
This most recent event in uncalled-for tasering comes after a former Premier league footballer Dalian Atkinson was killed with a taser last year.
