Disturbing footage has emerged from Adelaide of an Aboriginal man being strip searched by police in public.
The incident occurred last Wednesday in Adelaide. You can read the full description of the event and a statement from the man who was targeted by police in the original post. One thing that is very clear from the video is that the police began a strip search of an Aboriginal man on a public street.
When they realised they were being filmed, they escorted the man into the garage of a nearby house. The owners of that house had no connection to the man being searched. The house was also home to small children as the vision clearly showed children’s toys in the front yard. We will keep you updated about any response from the police over this.
