A SOLDIER who saw nine comrades killed in Afghanistan told yesterday how he was stopped from becoming a cop — because he is the wrong colour.
Brave Lance Cpl Ben Mayer, a regimental police officer with the Royal Anglians, was shown capturing Taliban terrorists on a telly documentary screened last week.

A white man who was wrongly charged with rape even though the victim said her attacker was black described his "nightmare" ordeal for the first time yesterday.
Mark Minick feared he would lose his girlfriend and children and contemplated suicide after he was charged on flawed DNA evidence.
During hours of questioning, three police officers claimed they had watertight DNA evidence linking him to the attack.

Health Minister Manto Tshabalala Msimang on Thursday vowed to continue engaging traditional healers on health issues, saying they were important partners in the fight against HIV/Aids.
"Some people might be resisting traditional healers but I believe we are on the right track," she said.
Speaking during a meeting in Cape Town between the Health Department and traditional leaders on initiations and circumcision, Tshabalala-Msimang said no amount of pressure would discourage her from engaging with traditional leaders on crucial issues such as HIV and Aids.
It was wrong for certain individuals and organisations to try and force people to turn their backs on their culture and traditions.
