A young man went to apply for a managerial position in a big company.

He passed the initial interview, and now would meet the director for the final interview.

The director discovered from his CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent.

He asked, Did you obtain any scholarships in school...?
the youth answered "NO".

Who paid for your school fees...?
" Parents ", he replied.

"Where did they work......?"

"They worked as clothes cleaner."

The director requested the youth to show his hands.
The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.

"Have you ever helped your parents wash the clothes ?"

Well, he should nt have resisted arrest. I know it's painful when u haven't done anything wrong. I'm a student in d uk on nigerian scholarship (although we haven't been paid a dime). I applied to a care company to work as carer for old people. I went to d interview n was told to pay 50pounds for dbs check which I did n den I was called for d training. During d training today I dozed off a bit. during break d trainer called me n told me to leave dt I wasn't fit for d training. I tried to explain that I stayed up a bit late in d library last night. He got pissed he said he s being fair by not embarrassing me in front other trainees n I should leave and not come back for d training tomorrow. I was d only black trainee. Now I have no job n my 50 pounds is gone.i feel so fustrated.

As a law student,
I believe that what the officers are doing to him is reasonable.
It is a statutory offence to resist arrest. If he simply conformed and followed the officers, it would have saved him the embarrassment.
The officers using their baton on him is reasonable when someone forcefully tries to resist arrest. All he did was to cause a scene for no apparent reason.

The man was simply demanding why he was being arrested. Over there you don't just make an arrest, you gotta tell him what you're arresting him for. He said he was gonna go with them but they should tell him what he's done wrong. And you don't go around hitting someone with your baton like that telling him to lie down, he's got rights.

Overly dramatic guy, he resisted arrest continuously. The UK police treated him fairly. It would have been an entirely different experience for him if he was in the U.S. "Down on the floor" and he was still standing and making a scene. What point was he trying to make exactly? The police are authorized to use reasonable force to subdue anyone resisting arrest and in my opinion the police here did next to nothing but hang about waiting for him to calm down from his tantrums. This is a drama queen making a mountain out of a mole hill, he was uncorporative and there is absolutely Nothing to see here but fantastic police work.

Police powers of arrest: your rights
To arrest you the police need reasonable grounds to suspect you’re involved in a crime for which your arrest is necessary.
The police have powers to arrest you anywhere and at any time, including on the street, at home or at work.

The police arrest procedure
If you’re arrested the police must:

identify themselves as the police
tell you that you’re being arrested
tell you what crime they think you’ve committed
explain why it’s necessary to arrest you
explain to you that you’re not free to leave
If you’re under 17 the police should only arrest you at school if it’s unavoidable, and they must inform your headteacher.

The police must also contact your parents, guardian or carer as soon as possible after your arrival at the police station.

Police powers to use reasonable force
If you try to escape or become violent, the police can use ‘reasonable force’, eg holding you down so you can’t run off.

You can also be handcuffed.

lets be fair in our judgement please. its so clear from the video that the guy was not resisting arrest neither was he threatening them with violence of any kind so why should he lie down on the floor like he was some dangerous criminal. They should have reserved all their tough speak and baton bashing for their lazy and jobless tax exempt folks here. From the look of things it seems the guy was only trying to get to work.

His offence was not getting a train ticket. He didn't resist arrest. He was asked to get down on the floor and he said he was already following them so y get down on the floor. The penalty fee for jumping the train is 80 pounds so y arrest him like that. The man was wrong for not buyinh ticket but the flogging was unnecessary. The whites hate blacks anyway.

First he's lucky he's not in US. Those ain't immigration police so its not immigration ish. If he was being traced for a crime as suspect,they would have surrounded him since. It's a train station and would likely be him using the underground without ticket subject to a fine. That doesnt usually exceed £25 or cause much violence. But he should have obeyed. However the baton things is extreme but not racial in my opinion as i have seen worse done to a white friend caught drunk driving and resisting arrest.

Oh so so sorry about your loss of both job& your money,it's really painful& I can understand how terrible u must have felt but just a lil advice incase of next time,we r all in this together as blacks living outside d Country,u have to get that 1st on your mind every time that so much is expected from you because of that,so wherever you are,wether work,school& even most importantly job interviews,u have to put up the best behaviour,be very alert, be unique,give a lasting impression so u can always stand out& u will shine& they'd be drawn to you& want to have you with them cos wether we like it or not,racism has always been there& is here to stay,they saw you were the only black person there& it was easy for them to do away with you cos they saw you sleeping off during d training& assumed u were not fit enough,it wasn't a good impression for a first time interview/training but I can understand that nature calls sometimes& u have to obey,what u could have done immediately u noticed u were starting to feel sleepy,u should have walked around,used the bathroom,washed your face or gone somewhere very hidden to take a quick nap.They expect so much adrenaline rush from all d prospective trainees so it was very easy for them to single u out esp as they see you were d only person of color there.They will rather give jobs to their own rather than foreigners so in a nut shell,next time pls sleep early b4 any interview/job training,do exercises,watch/ read articles about how to impress on a 1st time interview etc cos u'd continue to face this as in not find it as easy as others cos of your skin color but once u make that lasting impression,they will be clamouring& queuing for your service.Pls Tk care,I hope you get another job& it goes well for u next time.God bless

No, He was asked to lie down. Cops only ask a person to lie down when the person is suspected to conseal a weapon, Not when they skip out on a train ticket. A walk out/fine is usuallyw the way to go. Then again we don't know why things escalated to the lYing down part.

Tosin said...

Really? Law student. What's the source your own law? A man submits himself to arrest and says I will follow you don't handcuff me. And you call hitting him with a baton reasonable? I'm a lawyer and when a person agrees to follow you when arrested there is no reason to handcuff or use force. My impression of this video is not a man resisting arrest but one who refused to be handcuff without cause. And I believe he is within his right to request not to be hand cuffed . The only time force and restraint is necessary in an arrest is where a person completely refuses to subject himself to that arrest. Besides if you will arrest a person he has a right to know promptly what he is being arrested for. I didn't hear that in this video and the man kept asking why. Unfortunately for him these officers would end up reeling trumped up charges against him

What if he went to visit a family and was accusely arrested by some lame white woman or man! This things happen! I feel like he shouldn't have resisted but at the same time the hitting was uncalled for. I've seen instances where the person resisted and the police explained in a quiet manner. The police brutality is getting way out of hand. Truth be told, if you resist or not they still beat you like mad but when a white person resist they never really harm him. Being black I guess means you are arrogant or so they always believe. They treat you with unjustified stereotypes but if you treat the police with an unjustified stereotype they get mad. How about they police well so we know we can trust them.

From what he said "bcos of penalty fee", it's obv he traveled without the right ticket or had none at all! From experience(lol) they'd ask for your ID and other info so as to send penalty charge to your hse address if you're not able to pay on the spot. In a situation where you have no ID on you, you will be arrested, taken to the station to further confirm your identity. What dude must have done wrong here is to resist arrest. When British police recites the Miranda warning..."you're under arrest, you have the right to remain....blah blah", no matter what you say or do at that point, you are on free ride to their station...don't bother. Although, hitting the guy with baton was wrong! Wrestling him to the ground, yes. Hitting him, no no. Bless.

Maybe the guy didnt buy ticket and at thesame time, maybe he doesnt have papers to stay in the UK that's why he tried to resist arrest because after he gets to the police station, that's the first thing they will ask for. They will want to know his status and details. For resisting arrest, he might be charged to court because it is an offence. But the only thing i didnt like is telling him to lie down on the floor. That's inhuman and humiliating. He can use a human right lawyers to get justice for that one. You can arrest someone without telling him to lie down on a cold dirty floor because UK can be very very cold. The guy can claim that the floor was very cold and he is allergic to cold. The police was wrong and the guy was also wrong at some point.

Welson said...

@sexy sun has said it all. The police must give you the reason why your been arrested, however you do not need to shout unreasonably if they are in the process of arresting u.In my view the two officers felt his shouting was intimidating and creating unnecessary pandemonium. No matter the circumstance, one need not to resist arrest as the police will use a reasonable force to arrest and you and that might warrant a search and further criminal check on you. On a general note, this to me doesnt seem like a serious matter. I am happy it's not in the US were the police seem to be a bit racial, may be by now it would have been a different story.

Unknown said...

The police went too far agreed! The guy gave them reasons to. It's a general practise to handcuff a suspect to the police station except you are a police man or woman you will not go without been handcuffed in many countries they will handcuff the suspect and even have a chain around the handcuff which the police officer will hold on to. Don't give a police officer a reason to assault you. Do as you are told even after you realised he went extreme then you can sue. Police officer don't mind gunning a man down, we shouldn't give them reason to. He is unwise

The amount of ignorance from Linda and most comments here is unreal.
First the police have no right in the UK to arrest you without telling you why.
You have every right to walk away from police if they do not tell you why you are being arrested.
They have no right to put hands on you if you were not aggressive or threatened them.
It's clear he wasn't a criminal otherwise they would have surrounded him a lot more from beginning.
No proof this man is Nigerian at all.
A penalty of £80 is what is usually issued if he didn't pay for train.
The man can sue them for assault and unlawful arrest and detention.
Next time, do your homework before you comment and print a story but don't give wrong information or compare lawlessness in Nigeria to the UK or the US.

He didnt buy ticket, that's an offense.

Next time try to avoid sleeping during a job interview. They will just see you as incompetent instead of listening to ur reasons. This happens almost every where

The police used excessive force. It was just a penalty fare for boarding the train without ticket. Not saying the guy was completely innocent, but normally in that situation, the transport police take your name and address with a promise to pay the penalty at a later date - usually 21 days if you don't have the cash on you. There was no need to handcuff him and take him to the station

Blessedcutie Babes said...

He's saying they are treating him this way because of penalty fare? Which means he tried getting on a train without buying a ticket or paying the fares. He's a thief. It's a criminal offence

oba frank said...

Drunk driving is a criminal offence so it is understandable. not paying for train only warrant a fine. T

He didn't resist

But the UK laws says u have a right to be told what your offence is when u r being arrested. Many criminals have been let off because of this simple thing in the UK.

Senator Frank said...

Never resist arrest, follow d uniformed men, get to deir office, answer questions, den go ur way if u are innocent.

Would you like it if someone just approached you and told you to get on the floor in the busiest station in London without telling you what you have done? The other day a man was taken off a plane because of a prayer. Don't be so ignorant. The law should be followed by both civilians and police and this police man didn't follow the law

The Nigeria embassy here is useless and inept. They won't do anything

Same here.
He can sue for assault and unlawful arrest and detention

Thank God there's law here and the law says tell someone the reason why they are being arrested before you tell them to get on the floor

Thank you for the intelligent reply. Many people are so ignorant it's unreal

Sometimes I wish Nigeria police force will be active like this and not give there guns to stupid foreigners to snap with.

If the officer was acting within the law then you obey. The officer wasnt acting according to the law. Don't compare here to the lawlessness of Nigeria. He didn't resist, he was just asking for His rights

Anonymous said...

He said he will follow them
The police insisted on handcuffs which wasn't necessary

I dont think you listened to the video... he did not resist arrest. He agreed to go with them (i'm going with you; let's go...) but they wanted to humiliate him by telling him to lie on the floor. what for?

God punish your entire generation for that comment about Igbos. Ode!

Royalbeau said...

Did you watch the video or you just say what comes to your brain. He didn't resist arrest, he wasn't armed, so why are they asking him to go down and why trying to handcuff him, he was very willing to go with them. This isn't fair at all.

Anonymous said...

Well, until we know d reason for which he was arrested, i'l rest my case. But d guy tried, he made sure he ddnt lie on the floor!!! Respect! A white guy would hv been nicely invited to their office as long as he ddnt pose a threat to anyone's life!

Anonymous said...

Woww, they were probably unhappy u were there in d first place, other students might even have complained about u. Sometimes I get scared travelling, u just might never know wt ul do to get them angry, even dozing off at d airport might raise security issues!

It's you and your entire generation that is a zoo monkey.. Fool! Stupid racist!

adamson jamiu said...

This is absolute nonsense, hearing what the man is saying shows that he is indeed a gentle man, i hate how blacks are always been treated in the foreign countries. After admitting to go with them,yet he is still been beaten,this is visible to the blind and audible to the deaf.. White people have no respect for the Black.

We all know blacks are treated bad all over the world. Given the slightest opportunity, they pounce on you. So be disciplined & don't give them the pleasure.

The guy shouldnt have resisted arrest. If he didnt want to lie on the floor, he should have told them that he has back pain or knee problem. Oyinbo always respect people that have health issues. Or he can tell them that he is atshmatic with severe chest pain so he cannot lie on the floor and they will respect that because they know you can sue the police if you develop health issues because of that. There are ways to go about these things in a deplomatic way instead of shouting and challenging them. Thank God someone has a proof of the recorded video as evidence that will help him in court. If not, them for fry him ass.

Eyaah sorry about your loss but i do not support your sleeping on duty, interview or training class. The only thing i have against them is that they should have returned your money back to you if they dont want you anymore. It would have been a fair decision if they had refunded the money.

If the guy didnt buy train ticket, the guy is a thief and thieves are usually treated as criminals. If the ticket is £80, that means you stole £80 even if you did not steal it directly. The only place where i have a problem with the police is tellig him to lie on the floor when he is not carrying any weapons. All you would have done is search his pockets if he is carrying a gun or knife. If he is not, then simply take him to the station. There were more than 5 police officers there for christ sake. How could the guy possibly run away? There was no need humiliating him to lie on the floor.

NEVER RESIST ARREST SIMPLE

Those police were soft oooo. Imagine nigerian police. You wan ask dem why are dey treating you dis way?

FRESH said...

What exactly did he gain by making all that fuss,shouting & making that kind of scene?

Anonymous said...

lol but he did commit an offence and that makes him a criminal, a lot of people who commit this particular offence usually run immediately they get the chance. probably why they needed to put him in handcuffs.

Ify Modili said...

Absolutely nothing. If he's innocent, why not answer them. He should come to Nijja and do that one
