March 19, 2014 – Black Boy Arrested For Wearing Expensive £8,000 Watch In London Accuses Police Of Racism

A young boy who was recently arrested by police in London claims he was called a monkey by a police officer and beaten up because he was wearing an expensive watch.

16-year-old Daniel Davies, of Ranelagh Road, said he has lost all faith in the police following his ordeal, which saw him being locked up overnight on suspicion of handling stolen goods, before being released without charge.

He said: “Can’t a black man walk down the street wearing a nice watch without them [the police] looking at you a funny way?

“Do I have faith in the police? No way. I’ve lost all faith in them.”

The college student, who has no criminal record, intends on making an official complaint after he was arrested in Eddison Way, Wembley while on route to his sister’s house.

He said he was talking to a friend in his car when the pair were stopped and searched by five police officers. They were arrested when they saw his Grandmaster watch.

The timepieces can cost up to £8,000 but Mr Davies had bought his at a store in Harlesden for £100 with money saved from his paper round and birthday presents.

He said: “They asked where I bought my watch from and I told them and offered to take them there to prove it, but they refused to listen and arrested us both.”

He was taken to Wembley Police Station where he claims he was dragged into a cell and racially abused by an officer.

“One of them punched me and I looked up at him and asked ‘did you just punch me in the stomach’ and he said ‘yeah I f*****g punched you,” he said. “I also overheard one of them calling me a monkey. I was so vexed.”

Because Mr Davies is under 18 a duty solicitor and his 18-year niece were with him when he was interviewed. However, his mother Lurline Wright was twice refused access to her son when she visited the station.

Ms Wright, a mother-of-10, is vowing to get answers for his alleged treatment and plans to hold a demonstration outside the station.

She said: “My son is no trouble maker. They can’t touch him that way and get away with it. It’s not right or fair. We will take this all the way, to make sure those responsible are dealt with.”

Brent Police deny Mr Davies’ s allegations, saying he was restrained by officers after he became violent and refused to return to the youth detention room.

Superintendent Nick Davies, from Brent Police, added: “A risk assessment was also completed for him, as well as an appropriate level of care which was provided during his time in police custody.

“At this stage no official complaint has been received by police. Should a complaint be made, we will investigate it appropriately.”

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME DRAGGING YOURSELF TO COURT , BECAUSE THE JUDGE AND WHOEVER THERE ARE ALSO RACIST.

    I HAVE EXPERIENCE IT BEFORE, THE POLICE WAS CALLED ON ME WHEN I WENT TO JOHN LEWIS TO DO SOME SHOPPING PAYING CASH FOR A THOUSAND AND FIVE HUNDRED.

    I WAS MADE TO LOOK LIKE A SCUM. SOMETIMES WHEN THE POLICE SEE YOU DRIVING EXPENSIVE CAR ,THEY WILL WANT TO STOP YOU.

    1988, I BOUGHT AN EXPENSIVE SECOND CAR, THE POLICE ARRESTED ME MORE THAN TEN TIMES , I JUST HAVE TO SELL IT .

    BECAUSE ,IT WAS SO CRAZY TAKING ME TO COURT HERE AND THERE , BECAUSE I WAS ACCUSED THAT , IT WAS A STOLEN CAR , IT MEAN I WAS AN HIGHWAY ROBBER.

    MOST ESPECIALLY THE PARKING TICKET. EVERYDAY,THEY WILL CHAINED THE CAR , AND I WOULD BE MADE TO PAY DOUBLE , OR TOOK THE CAR TO GARAGE FOR DAYS , IN WHICH YOU ARE CHARGED OVER TWO HUNDRED POUNDS A DAY.

    IT IS A PLACE THAT,WE SHOULD NOT BE . I WISH ALL OF US COME BACK HOME SOONER.

    Quite boy. Why will you have a £8,000 watch whether fake or real,that’s about 2.6 to 3million naira at 16. you said it yourself you were arrested when they saw the watch,they are right,this have nothing to do with black or red skin.they are doing their job.From the way your month was ranting like a rapper i will boldly say that you are a spoilt child,arrogant,full of empty pride and very very silly.Life have no duplicate and very easy to lose,be careful not to useless your future young lad.face your studies and forget this BIG/2PAC wanna be.

    ************. He was racilly abused and it was clearly written there. Even if the story was a lie, havent u heard of other people’s complain? do u have to crucify him for trying to look good? he has the right to rap and rant cuz he was unduly arrested. if it was a white boy wearing a 10million naira watch, the police wouldnt have done anything.

      You made me go back to the story to see where it was started that they racially abused him.Everything was what THE BOY CLAIMED HE OVERHEARD,NOT EVEN A FACE TO FACE THING OR YOU ARE A MONKEY.Do you think your ranting will make me take your comment or vote for jungle justice on behalf of the cop sorry dear red can’t roll in that direction,so you believed a police man that knows the law and the outcome of racist word will voice that out so loud for it to be overheard in a public place? REALLY? because that alone can fetch him his termination.So because other people complained,everything case now have to be the same as in generalization ? This time is called trying to look good and no more vanity upon vanity.Anybody arrested by the cop is a suspect unless proven not guilty which they found out and dropped the charge.If you so sensitive that you can’t stand other people’s comment unless it favours you then i think a public forum like this is not for your type.Please save it child.
