Smiley Culture-Police Officer

One of Britain's first Reggae successes, Smiley Culture was killed during a police raid on his home this past March 15. The police have made the ludicrous claim that Smiley stabbed himself in the heart. This video from 1985 recounts how he had been harassed by the police repeatedly, even though he had become famous with his first hit, Cockney Translation. Sadly, nothing has changed in Britain over the past 25 years. Hence the reason why Britain today is witnessing the same uprisings as back then.
