Gang matrix a human rights violation: New report

Wednesday, 9 May 2018

Amnesty International has, this week, accused the Metropolitan Police of violating the human rights of predominantly black boys and men through continued use of the gang violence matrix.

Amnesty's report has received coverage across major UK media outlets prompting calls to ban the matrix and similar police gang lists.
