Well, Van Vicker has noted a few words about the unfortunate incidence.
According to Van in an Instagram post, he opined that the police could have been a bit professional in their arrest.
His full post on Instagram reads:
“As I watched this video of @therealfunnyface being manhandled by the Ghana Police Service the first thing that came to mind was, WHAT LAW HAS HE BROKEN / WHAT HAS HE DONE WRONG? Currently, I still don’t have an answer; on the search.I am not privy to any info outside these visuals, hence my concerns as per THIS VIDEO:1.
Was he being arrested?2. Was he being taken in for questioning?3. Was the police being ‘vindictive’?4. Was he resisting to be taken away?5. Was he pleading to lock up his vehicle and then can be taken?6.
Did the officer HAVE TO hit him with the riffle butt?7.
Seems there was some misunderstanding, what could it be?8. Etc.I am NOT holding brief for @therealfunnyface nor am I concluding police brutality, however as per this video, in my opinion, the police COULD HAVE BEEN a little MORE CIVIL.Just like ALL OF US, NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW, so if one breaches the law one shall face the full rigour of the consequences thereof, however, we are humans and even as enforcers of the law there is always a latitude to apply discretion depending on the gravity of the situation.So Let’s DO THE RIGHT THING – ALWAYS.”
