Yesterday, Wretch 32 took to social media to share the disturbing and shocking footage of his 62 year-old father, Millard Scott falling down the stairs after being tasered by the Police in his own home.
“This is how the police think they can treat a 62 year old black man in Tottenham but this 1 happens to be my dad #Nojusticenopeace” , Wretch 32 captioned the video.
In a time where Police brutality, racism and racial justice is at it’s peak, with protests being held worldwide – Wretch 32 and his father want to bring to light their experience with the Metropolitan Police.
Last night, Wretch 32 and his father appeared on ITV News at 10pm to share their story.
Millard Scott, said; “I’m lucky to be alive,”
“The only people who have invaded our space are the Metropolitan Police. The only people who seem to ignore the guidelines put out there are the Metropolitan Police.
“It seems at this moment in time we are being singled out and targeted.”
Wretch 32 went on to say that there has been “no progression” since he grew up watching his father and uncle fighting Police brutality.
The Metropolitan Police said that the officers went to the Tottenham property as part of “a long-running operation to tackle drugs supply linked to serious violence”.
A statement was made saying; “As officers entered the premises, a man came downstairs and started moving towards an officer suddenly.
“He was ordered to remain where he was but continued towards officers who, after several warnings, deployed a Taser.”
“The man was not arrested, but was assessed by the London Ambulance Service at the scene. He did not require further medical treatment.“
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has asked for an “urgent” investigation by the police watchdog; “I have asked the Metropolitan Police for an urgent explanation of this distressing incident which is understandably causing considerable concern,”.
