They do have a lot of explaining to do...
1. Why did the Met and City Police both state that they hadn't encountered this man prior to his collapse?
2. Why was he attacked while he was walking away, non-threatening, and while the officers were not experiencing any violence?
3. Why did that officer have to move him? There wasn't a Police line, there were people milling about BEHIND THEM!
4. Why did the Police state that they were "under fire" while trying to treat him? There is footage of that too, there is one bottle thrown and the
entire crowd scream to stop, and they do. They were not under "sustained fire" from anyone either while he was attacked or while they were treating
5. Why did the officer not come forward when this allegation was made?
6. Why didn't the officers colleagues present come forward when this investigation was announced?
7. Where is the CCTV footage covering this area, and why did the Police deny the incident when they would have seen this on that footage?
And the most important question...
Why did both the Met and City Police think that they could get away with this, did they not notice the hundreds of cameras pointed at them? Are they
really that f'ing stupid?
This all suggests that the Met and City forces are corrupt. It seems that they acted violently on that day toward citizens of this country, and it
appears that they then made a coordinated effort to cover it up.
They tried to give the impression that the protesters were to blame, and that the protesters hindered their assistance to this man.
Clearly, they lied.
But, what will happen? Nothing. The officer will be let off. His colleagues won't face any questions. It's business as usual.
The same will happen at the next gathering of world leaders and the cycle will continue. In fact it might just get worse as more officers are
seemingly allowed to get away with it, and they'll just enact more legislation to prevent the gathering of evidence by the public.
And they wonder why the people are so f'ing angry?
