Ian Tomlinson was unlawfully killed by a Metropolitan Police officer at the G20 protests, an inquest jury has said.The 47-year-old collapsed and died after he was hit by a baton and pushed to the ground by PC Simon Harwood at the protests in London on 1 April 2009 - BBC link.
Perhaps now they will introduce psychological profiling for riot cops. Writing as a veteran of many protests and riots, it is apparent to me that many officers are decent, hard-working, courteous people. And many others are bordeline psycopaths out for a ruck; as impressive as a bunch of beered-up right-wing boot boys.
Let us all hope that the decent police officers will police the thugs amongst their midst. As a former British infantry soldier - I expect they will. But if they dont I shall be there to witness and organise. We are the connected generation. You are being watched. Time to decide.
