In the video, a well-dressed man in a suit is reporting a mugging to a police officer, who happens to be a woman. The police officer's line of questioning steadily goes awry as she asks the man if he was dressed "provocatively" in an expensive-looking suit during the time of the crime. The victim is confused and slightly offended. "You look quite provocatively wealthy... Just a bit of an invitation, isn't it? Like you're advertising it," chides the police officer.
The police officer goes on to explain to the man that he is partly responsible for the crime based on what he was wearing and how he acted.
However, people online have mixed reactions to the video. While many call it "brilliant," others think it risks trivialising a serious issue.
@bbccomedy - brilliant! This should be part of mandatory police and lawyers training to watch this— laura wright (@lalawrighty) March 12, 2017
