Ha yeah, I’ve just remembered the name of a YouTube channel that is all about cctv, police, and the state and what it’s doing and why possibly too. It’s called Swilliam or Swilliamism, you should find it in the search on YouTube easily enough if he hasn’t been shadow banned yet. I highly recommend it though it’s quite London centric but very interesting. There’s another guy who likes to talk in public and to security guards trying to get him to stop through a grammar phone, its hilarious, though his name escapes me now.

They are both very knowledgable of our actual laws though, which is worthy of note...

Get the foil tape. For a list of reasons.

Oh dear God...

What a wonderland! Tell me more of this wondrous place! Screw the peace and harmony though, all that sugar is MINE.


Everybody craps out Snickers bars that are perfectly good to eat, although the peanut content varies from bar to bar.

True story.

I agree, it is cultural. I just wonder why so many ATS members don't want to change that culture, a culture of fear from everything I read. Nobody calls cops 'sir' or 'ma'am' in the UK, it would be weird as.
We can argue with our cops with no fear of them being angry we disrespected their authority.
It seems to me that the UK is the land of the free, sorry.


True.


They can get pissed off and still hold off on a beating. Their chief weapon is disdain and irritation. I mean their two main weapons are disdain, irritation and sarcasm. Their THREE main weapons are disdain, irritation, sarcasm and a ruthless efficiency...

Amongst their weaponry...are such elements as disdain, irritation...

It is legal to film a UK cop in any situation in a public place.
You are really stretching it if you are trying to say UK citizens get stopped from filming or phones confiscated, absolutely silly.
...oh and that is the reason we don't see much UK cop violence, lol, everyone is to scared to film it LMAO, you know how daft that sounds?


I'm not saying anything, just describing what's in the video's. Are those fake? I have no way of knowing, just like people not in the US have no way of knowing whats real and what's not. YouTube video's are crap, edited to match the bias and often out and out wrong.

I feel kinda sorry for them tbh.

I remember the days when the police were both feared and respected. It doesn't bode well.

Was the last pic representative of a "sharp knife" no knock warrant in the UK ?
Appears so.
Dang , the UK does not play around when one is suspected of having anything other than a butterknife in their possession

The police will only do that with known criminals through fear of lawsuits.

Your 3rd unfriendly off-topic post in this thread, lol, do you have any on-topic comments to make?

EDIT
You could even post some youtube's of UK police brutality if you can find any.
Good to be balanced on ATS, it can't be that US police are brutal compared to UK police...can it?

Uh huh. Counting on that when the state owns the CCTV.

I've been baffled how you people are some cozy with the damned thing. I've been wondering if ya'll replaced saying "hail mary" with saying "2+2=5", for getting that comforting solace feeling.


Actually most the CCTV is privately owned.....

Yep, we're filmed at every store, mall, petrol station etc, I don't even think about it anymore. I don't see why anyone worries either, if you have a mobile phone you can be tracked by the state anyway.
CCTV has saved me from prosecution before now though.
...now, where are all the police brutality videos I expected people to post, we should have at leat a sixth of the number from the US posted on youtube. Or maybe, just US cops are more brutal with their citizens than UK cops are?

Either that or Americans are exceptional filmers and experts at being in the right place at the right time to film police beating on citizens.

Something that I think is worth remembering is that just because there is this stereotype of UK police being a rather placid bunch who tend to police with with words and sit about doing paper work all day they do have their bad-ass side.

Just look up the work of the CT-SFO's or read up on the work of the Flying squad.

Maybe we're poor and not many people have camera phones in the UK?

a reply to: OtherSideOfTheCoin
Agreed mate, I'm just looking for a proportionate amount of youtubes showing UK cop violence compared to the US.
We have one sixth the population so if our cops were equally violent then we should have one sixth the violence videos on youtube.
The point I'm really making is that UK cops clearly are not as violent as US cops, or Brits don't understand technology and don't know how to upload videos?

There's Alfie Meadows (brain injury from student riots), blind guy with a cane who was tasered as police mistook it for a samurai sword, a guy in a diabetic coma tasered as he'd slumped on a rucksack on a bus and they'd he was a suicide bomber, Harry Stanley who was shot and killed while carrying a table leg wrapped in a cloth that was mistaken for a shotgun but that's pretty much it for the last 20 years.

Only been on the recieving end once out of all the protests I've been to. We were kettled and had police horses charge at us for several hours in an anti-EDL demo in Manchester a few years back. They ween't beating people up but they were trying to goad and intimidate, making half hearted baton swipes at head hight when riding in. Usually they're very relaxed and hands off so guess something must have caused that reaction.

Getting mixed up with the student protest - footage of them charging us here: was ruled a peaceful demo and MET found in the wrong in court but really wasn't scary or reckless if you know anything about horses. I told a mate off because he was almost walking behind a horse and it's both risky to him and unfair on the horse who might get spooked - the officer thanked us and gave space.

- shows just how half arsed charges were

Not the police, but one time I was dragged into Magistrates Court for an unpaid parking fine. As I was late paying, prosecution was also asking for an extra fee (something like £40).

I explained to the Magistrate that I'd tried to pay in installments but the office wouldn't accept anything but payment in full, before the deadline.

Long story short, as a former Army Cadet I knew to refer to my female superiors as Ma'am.

Not only did this put a huge smile on the Magistrates face, but she waived the extra fee, cut my initial parking fine in half, and gave the prosecution a dressing down for not allowing me to pay what I could when I could.

Short but still sad list, I agree, we have our share of bad cops, but not to the degree on youtube that would be on population size compared to the US.
I've been kettled, batoned, arrested and convicted lots of times in my younger activist days. It's par for the course if I believe in something strongly enough. Our UK cops are mostly cool, it's only when one prick on either cop/activist side starts something then it can unfortunately all kick off.
No fear of being shot though, that pleases me.
