Jesse Jackson calls for public inquiry into British deaths in police custody

Veteran civil rights activist Jesse Jackson was in London today (Thursday, 15 December) to call for an inquiry into deaths in police custody.

“The police have permission to behave in this way,” he said. “They are protected by the state. The choice is whether we adjust to oppression, or resist and fight back.”
