Mohammed investigates: Ethnic Profiling in the Netherlands

The Dutch grassroots initiative Contral-Alt-Delete focusing on ethnic profiling by the Dutch police has launched a mini-documentary by Mohammed Anouar and Blikopeners called Mohammed investigates ethnic profiling. In this documentary Mohammed Anouar reflects on the assumption that effective policework means a focus on Moroccan-Dutch youth as this category is overrepresented in many of the (blue-collar) crime statistics.

The video has english subtitles:
