The Green Baroness interviews Stafford Scott about gangs, myths, poverty and prejudice

January 13, 2019

Community campaigner Stafford Scott discusses the gangs matrix and why institutional racism within the police is leading to failure and costing lives on the streets. The gangs matrix is a database that fuels the violence it purports to be trying to stop. It needs a complete overhaul. Stop and search will inflame a bad situation. He explains why you need to invest in families and communities as the way out of gang violence. You can not police your way out of this situation.

The interview ends with the usual 'hard questions' that need rebutal.
