It should be pretty easy shouldn’t it?
If you had to put your life on it, you would probably pick the rather menacing character dressed as V.
But here in the UK , as I’m sure you are aware, London recently played host to the G20 summit and as sure as David Hasselhoff likes a drink, there were some protests.
Not unusual you might say, and you would be right but the aftermath of these particular protests will be felt for a very very long time.
In short, one person died (footage can be seen here) and there is a dossier with the Independant Police Complaints commission containing footage of two further incidents and 400 testimonies from demonstrators who claim to have been assaulted by police or have witnessed aggressive behaviour by them.
Its clear from the videos that some riot police have broken police rules by failing to display their identifying numbers on their uniforms and the legalities of the Met’s riot tactics are being questioned which involved ‘kettling’ thousands of demonstrators into confined spaces.
I mean we’re no strangers to police brutality, anyone remember Rodney King? but how and when is this going to end?
Is it getting worse or has it always been there but now we have the additional media tool of a mobile phone with video camera?
The G20 protests suggest, yet again, that those we entrust to enforce the law still think that they are above it. And that is not something we as a society should tolerate.
Lets be havin your comments (sorry).
