Why has he been stopped? Is it because he's complaining to the police because he's linked to Stephen Lawrence?

To be stopped 25 times does seem a bit ott.Jermain Defoe the black spurs striker has also complained about being stopped simply because he was black and driving a nice car

I have black friends who have been stopped too often, driving BMW or Mercs.
