Hodnocení poroty

“Whether you wear a cap or not, you’ll be punished” – this is more or less how ethnic profiling works. Police could control any cyclist – they would always find something that is not as it should be. Especially in poor areas. But they “specialise” in people from the Roma community. “'There Is No Cap On” wants to disturb that practice. The absurdity of police intervention is highlighted; the most excessive case is awarded the prize. Even mainstream media are thus alerted to punishments dealt out according to ethnic criteria. At the same time, those responsible are offered help for the changing of such police practices. An innovative sandwich strategy, so to say.
