A BLACKPINK student has launched legal action against the Metropolitan Police and her school after she was stripped of her clothes by police while on her period.
The girl is suspected of smelling marijuana.
Who is child Q?
The 15-year-old black schoolgirl, known only as Child Q.
The “traumatic” police search took place at Child Q’s school without another adult present.
Staff members knew she was on her period, a protective review found.
During the search, her body parts were exposed and she was asked to take off her sanitary napkin.
No drugs were found and she was then taken home by taxi.
Her family believes the strip search was an incident of racism.
According to the report, the impact on the school’s students was “profound” and the consequences “clear and ongoing”.
Family members describe her as having changed from a “happy lucky girl to a reclusive, shy and barely speaking girl” and now in need of treatment.
The report concluded the strip search should never have happened, was unfounded and that racism “could have been an influencing factor”.
It is thought that “cult bias” is most likely a factor – this is when adults consider black children to be older than they are because they see them as more “stubborn”.
Her attorneys said in a statement Child Q “sees to keep both grounds to account, including through cast iron pledges to ensure this never happens again to any of the children.” any other child.”
Scotland Yard has apologized and said the incident “should never have happened”.

The girl released a statement saying she wanted everyone involved to “take responsibility.”
She added: “I need to know that the people who have done this to me can’t do it to anyone else again, in fact, so no one else can do this to any other kid. any other child in their care.”
Detective Superintendent Dan Rutland of the Met’s Central Eastern Command issued an apology to the girl who now needs treatment.
“We found that the findings of the protection review reflect this incident that should never have happened,” he said.
“It is deeply regrettable and on behalf of the Met Police, I would like to apologize to the child involved, her family and the wider community.”
