Can You Change the Police From Within? | Ash Sarkar Meets Leroy Logan

20 years after the Macpherson Report, the Metropolitan Police is still dogged by accusations of institutional racism, while the Black Lives Matter movement has forced a reckoning with police brutality and inequalities in the criminal justice system. But should Black and Asian people protest from the outside to force change, or join the ranks of the police itself?

Ash Sarkar meets Leroy Logan, former police superintendent and inspiration of Steve McQueen’s Red White and Blue to talk about his father’s assault at the hands of the Met, institutional racism, and whether you can really change things from the inside.
