Van Vicker Bemoans The Police’s Lack Of Civility In Funny Face’s Apparent Manhandling During Arrest

Funny Face’s apparent manhandling has got many talking and asking questions as to whether he actually deserved to be treated that way by the nation’s security service.

In the video footage of the arrest of the comedian, he could be seen being dragged to the police vehicle with some force that is not accustomed to police when they effect arrests.

Force is often necessary and inevitable when a person tries to resist arrest, but in this case, Funny Face didn’t show any sign of resistance to arrest but he was treated that way.

For the perplexed Van Vicker, it is not clear to him the law Funny Face broke or the wrong he had done to necessitate such treatment.

Van Vicker, who said that he is not insinuating that the police were exhibiting some brutality, opined that they could have been a bit civil with how they dealt with the ‘Children President’.

He added that no one is above the law and when they do anything wrong, they need to face the law but it is important to take it easy and always do the right things always to avoid escalating matters.

Van Vicker registered his bemusement on the matter on social media where he wrote;

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.

Gabon has received $17 million (KSh 17 billion) in compensation for successfully reducing greenhouse gas emissions through reduced deforestation and forest degradation.
