Over 150 UK Policemen Are Being Investigated Over Sexual Misconduct & Racism Allegations

Not less than 150 Metropolitan Police officers are under investigation over reported
sexual misconduct and racism claims, according to The Guardian report.

It was found that 118 officers had been on restricted duties following sexual misconduct claims, while another 43 officers were facing an investigation over racism allegations after reports had been made in late November 2022.

This recent development is hardly surprising as the largest police force in Britain has
recently been plagued by several scandals, including the murder of Sarah Everard by
an active police officer, Wayne Couzens.

A few months after the murder incident, two more officers were jailed for taking and
posting pictures of the dead bodies of slain sisters Nicole Smallman and Bibaa Henry.

Scotland Yard has blamed the rise in restrictions and suspensions on the ‘concerted
efforts’ to encourage other employees to identify and report misconduct as well as the mandate that staff members report misconduct.

The ‘Reclaim These Streets (RTS)’ collective, which came together to organize a vigil in response to Miss Everard’s murder, had been part of the activists who were outraged by the revelations.

A spokesperson told the Guardian: “It’s extraordinary that we’re expected to pay to keep the misogynists and racists on the Met (Metropolitan) police payroll.”

“It’s only right that they’re suspended. Women deserve to know that the person we ask for help in an emergency isn’t a predator, lurking themselves.”
