London, Apr 14(ANI): Metropolitan Police commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe has promised to become an 'implacable enemy' of racists at Scotland Yard as he agreed with the suggestion the force needed to get more ideas to tackle racism.
Hogan-Howe said investigation into ten allegations of racism against the force would be completed within four weeks.
While giving an interview on a local radio channel, Hogan-Howe was confronted by Roger David, brother of black bus driver Kester David, whose doubtful death in 2010 will be reinvestigated by the force
Roger told Hogan-Howe on the radio: "I think your force needs to buck up its ideas and realise that black and ethnic people are here in Britain, we're part of society and we request and demand the same kind of treatments as white people in Britain."
"The police have to start from the top and go right down to the bottom and make sure that they get rid of, eliminate, any racial discrimination within the force," he added.
Hogan-Howe replied to show's host: "I agree with him. The first point I'd make is that this is the world's greatest diverse city and we're going to use that as a reason to be the best in the world at policing."
"We're not going to use it as an excuse for failing and sometimes I do hear us and sometimes others saying that the diversity of London means that we have a bigger challenge," The Daily Star quoted Hogan-Howe, as saying.
Ten other complaints of alleged racism, relating to 18 officers and one member of police staff were referred to the police watchdog last week.
"Racists will find me an implacable enemy. We will get rid of them, we will drive them out of the Met ...It is a serious issue and I think you can see that by the rigour and the vigour of what our response has been, that we're taking it seriously," Hogan-Howe added. (ANI)
