Charlie Harrison Age
Charlie Harrison is 39-years-old.
Sentencing, Judge Gregory Perrins said: “This was a clear case of racial profiling. “I am satisfied that had they have been white you would have driven by without disturbing them.”
The court heard how Mr Abrahams, 47, was leaving the cemetery with his two sons on New Year’s Eve 2018 after placing flowers on his late partner’s grave when he was targeted.
Plain-clothed Harrison, who was part of Scotland Yard’s Violent Crime Task Force, used a “leg sweep” to knock the dad to the ground.
The cop, who made no effort to identify himself as a police officer after pulling up in an unmarked car, had been looking for black suspects in the area.
He said he approached the stunned family because “you don’t find drugs or weapons by remaining in your car”.
But his claims were dismissed by the judge, who said he had no grounds to arrest Mr Abrahams and no reason to stop and search the family.
The court was told he still requires regular physiotherapy three years after the attack and had to give up playing sport.
Judge Perrins said: “Even three years later his sons remain in fear of the police and worry they will be targeted because of the colour of their skin. Mr Abrahams believes the reason he was assaulted was he was black.
Commander Paul Betts said: “This matter was subject to a thorough investigation by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards and PC Harrison charged and later convicted by a jury.
“His actions were found to have fallen well below the standard we expect of our police officers, with a man left badly injured.
