Force Admits Rejecting White Men

Just read Force Admits Rejecting White Men and Force 'Faces Flood Of Pay Outs' on the police news site.

Gloucestershire Police have admitted illegally rejecting 108 potential recruits because they were white men. In an attempt to boost its number of ethnic and women recruits, Gloucestershire Police "randomly deselected" the 108 white men, a tribunal have heard.

But one of the rejected men, Matt Powell, 30, from Gloucester, took action against the force, taking it to the tribunal on the grounds he had been discriminated against.

Mr Powell said: "I firmly believe a wrong has been done here. I was, I still am, desperate to be a police officer and they have unfairly discriminated against me."

Congratulations to you Mr Powell for having the courage to stand up and be counted. I wish you all the best for the future.
