Police Brutality

Shortly before he died of a heart attack, Ian Tomlinson was the subject of an unprovoked attack by the police, footage of which was obtained by the Guardian.

Will they get away with this too, just like they got away with the death of Jean Charles de Menezes?

I’m just angry and sickened, and mostly just want to go stand outside Scotland Yard with a placard, except that I’m fairly sure it’s within that exclusion zone we’re forbidden from protesting in without obtaining permission from the police.

Some democracy.

  1. I hadnt heard much of this til I read the article on the bbc news website today (not been keeping up with the news so much…). As I read the article, my jaw pretty much dropped.

    Disgusting.

    For fuck's sake, he was even walking away from the officer!
