Police Officer Accused Of Racial Abuse Gets Charged

PC Alex MacFarlane Was Recorded On A Phone

Police Officer Accused Of Racial Abuse Gets Charged

Has the police officer involved been charged due to public pressure or this a genuine case of the Police wanting to stamp out racism, because I wonder why the Crown Prosecution Service initially decided not to pursue the case until Mauro Demetrio's (victim) lawyer asked for another review of the case. I still think PC Alex MacFarlane should never be allowed to Police again.

A police officer who was recorded on a mobile phone allegedly racially abusing a black suspect inside a van has been charged, reversing an earlier decision in which prosecutors decided he should not face charges.

The suspect, Mauro Demetrio, 21, used his mobile phone to record the encounter. In January the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) initially decided not to bring criminal charges against MacFarlane or another police officer who Demetrio alleged strangled him in the back of a police van. Last month the CPS agreed to review its decision after being threatened with legal action by Demetrio's lawyer, Michael Oswald.
