Kill The Black One First: Michael Fuller

Michael Fuller was the UK's first black Chief Constable and his journey to this position is quite the story. Kill The Black One First is the title of Michael's memoir and it goes into his amazing career, his unique upbringing, and also many stories from his decades within the police force: "Kill the black one first!" was shouted at Michael as he stood shield-to-shield with his fellow officers on the frontlines of the Brixton riots in 1981... but we'll let Michael tell you that story himself!


We address a lot in this episode, such as racism in the police, as well as the contentious issue of stop and search powers - the success of this police tactic, but also its divisive nature in recent times. This is a truly fascination conversation with someone who's earned their place in the UK history books.
