‘Undercover police spied on grieving families of de Menezes, Groce and Reel’
If you are a person of colour
if the police think you are a person of colour
if the police think that you might be a person of colour
if one of your family is killed
if one of your family is killed by the police
you should assume that the police
will dress up in plain clothes
and hide amongst people you know
and watch what you do
while you grieve for the person who was killed
and you should assume that they will make notes
about you and your family
and that they will keep these notes for as long as they can.
If you wonder why or how this keeps you safe
if you wonder why or how this keeps the rest of us safe
do not ask the police why they made notes about you
do not ask the police why they kept these notes about you.
If you do ask the police any of these questions
do not assume that you will get an answer.
