“Is it because I am a white man?” He asked the officer who did not seem to be paying attention to his complaints.
“I was assaulted and you refuse to help me, it’s when I have problems at home that you come to help me? “.
He then demanded to speak to the chief of the police station, insisting that he would wait for the person in charge.
