“Enough is enough”: Campaign launched

“Enough is enough”: Campaign launched

“More than a hundred Bristolians, among them mayor Marvin Rees, gathered in support of Ras Judah Adunbi, a respected community leader recently tasered by police outside his home.

Disturbing footage filmed by a shocked neighbour showed the 63-year-old grandfather being tasered in the face after refusing to give his name to officers who mistook him for a wanted man. This was the second time Ras Judah, who founded a group to foster better community relations with the force, had been mistakenly accosted by police, even receiving compensation for an incident in 2009.
