In Episode 1 of Bars For Change Jody McIntyre is asking 'Who Polices the Police?'
With new allegations about fraud, corruption and police brutality hitting the headlines every day, Jody asked you to tell us about your dealings with the Police.
Drawing on these contributions, and their own experiences, Mic Righteous, Ghetts, DVS and Logic have teamed up with producer Naughty Boy to write an exclusive new track which forms the soundtrack to the film.
As well as their bars you'll hear the story of Awate, who was punched in the face on a student protest, Rosie, who was kettled for 9 hours in central London whilst Jody asks poet Benjamin Zephaniah, former top cop Brian Paddick and nephew of Smiley Culture, Merlin Emmanuel, who does police the police?
Jody's search for an answer inspires him to make a mass complaint at Brixton Police station and he explains how YOU have the power to challenge authority if you have been unfairly treated by the police.
Let us know what you think of the track and the video in the comments below or on our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/barsforchange) where you can see behind the scenes photos from all our shoots.
