ストーリー

Date:JUNE 23, 2020, FILE A British nurse who was pulled out of her car, arrested and kept in a cell for 18 hours says she believes she was treated unfairly and aggressively during her "petrifying" late-night encounter with police because she is black.
Amid a global wave of protests against racism and police brutality, sparked by the death of George Floyd in the United States, Britain has been grappling with its own past and present record of discrimination against black people.
Neomi Bennett, a 47-year-old nurse working for the National Health Service, said she had chosen this moment to go public about her arrest in April 2019 because she felt it was now possible to raise complaints that were previously brushed aside.
"Prior to this, if I ever mentioned the problems, the struggles of being a black person, you would immediately be shut down and told you've got a chip on your shoulder," she told Reuters TV in an interview.
Bennett was sitting in her car, which was parked by the side of a road in southwest London, when a group of white officers approached. Footage of the encounter was captured by a camera worn by the officer who spoke to Bennett.
At first, the officer said the issue was that Bennett's car had illegally tinted windows, and he asked her to step out of her car. Bennett said she was scared. Her windows were in fact not illegally tinted.
The officer's response was: "Right, I don't believe you because you're talking to police officers. That makes me think that you're actually trying to conceal something."
Later on, he said that if Bennett did not comply with his instruction the police would "have to put the windows in".
At various points, Bennett repeated that she was scared, tried to call a lawyer, called her father asking for help, and said she did not want to be touched by any male officer.
The officer said several times that Bennett would be arrested if she did not step out of her car.
At one point, Bennett said she wanted to ask a lawyer if the officer's behaviour was legal because "this is what you are doing to black people", to which he responded: "Right, you are really starting to annoy me madam."
The incident culminated in Bennett being pulled out, handcuffed, arrested and told that she was suspected of having stolen property inside her car as well as illegally tinted windows.
Court documents later showed the windows were within the legal limit.
She was convicted of obstructing a police officer, but appealed against her conviction. In May, her appeal was allowed after prosecutors decided not to oppose it.
In a statement, London's Metropolitan Police said no illegal items were found in Bennett's car.
The force said Bennett was asked 23 times to leave the vehicle, and was arrested because of her lack of cooperation.
"Officers had to force her out of the vehicle, she resisted and had to be placed in handcuffs," the police said in a written statement.
Bennett is pursuing a complaint against the police.
She said she had observed on other occasions that the way the police interacted with white people was starkly different from their attitude towards black people.
Last year, the head of the Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, said there was "an absolute determination to have zero tolerance for racism" in the police.
Mother of three Bennett has also designed an award-winning medical sock called Neo-Slip that is used by the NHS, and met UK Prime Minister Boris at an industry event in January 2020.

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (JUNE 23, 2020) (REUTERS)
(SOUNDBITE) (English) NURSE AND ENTREPRENEUR, NEOMI BENNETT, SAYING:
"I think it is very good in terms of we've now sort of can have that conversation. As uncomfortable as it is, we can have that conversation. Because prior to this, if ever I sort of mentioned problems or the struggles of being a black person, you would immediately be shut down and told that your, you've got a chip on your shoulder. I mean, I grew up being told I've got a chip on my shoulder or, you know, you need to get backbone. But now it's really sort of refreshing that there's solidarity between, other white people can actually see the struggle."
BENNETT'S NHS LANYARD
(SOUNDBITE) (English) NURSE AND ENTREPRENEUR, NEOMI BENNETT, SAYING:
"Firstly, what's important from the top. They need to acknowledge that there is a problem and they need to acknowledge that there can be a change.
