Weekend Herald - - News -

Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Mike Bush has of­fered to meet with Marama David­son af­ter the Greens co-leader ac­cused po­lice of racial pro­fil­ing — say­ing that per­cep­tion is “a real con­cern we need to ad­dress”. David­son says her brother is reg­u­larly racially pro­filed by the po­lice. “Sugges­tions of racial pro­fil­ing by po­lice or head­lines about ‘sys­temic racism’ are di­rectly at odds with the core val­ues we up­hold, par­tic­u­larly di­ver­sity, pro­fes­sion­al­ism, re­spect and com­mit­ment to M¯aori and the Treaty,” Bush said.
