Zone 2 Police Public Relations officer, Dolapo Badmos has sparked reactions on Twitter with a tweet she shared on her Twitter page that having a tattoo or dreadlocks does not make it a criminal.
According to her tweet, she wrote:
HAVING TATTOO ON YOUR BODY OR DREADLOCKS ON YOUR HEAD DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY CRIME. Resist the intimidation of any law enforcement officer who wants to use that as a basis to terrorize you by remaining calm, determined, polite and insisting not to be a criminal to have it.
Many twitterers supported her tweet, but also made her realize that some police officers are at risk of framing, killing or even brutalizing civilians if they don’t stick to it.
