This is Commander Ali Dizaei. He’s the President of the National Black Police Association. And today he called for positive discrimination to boost the number of black police officers.
This is dangerous ground – he admitted his comments could cause division among white officers.
He said that extremism called for the “right people” to be fast-tracked into the job.
But if a serious argument is going to be had about this issue, then Mr Dizaei is not the best person to start it. He’s currently suspended from the Met Police. In fact, he’s being investigated on three separate counts of misconduct.
Shouldn’t he be quiet for a while, rather than stoke up an issue which he admits is going to divide the force he works for?
