Although I doubt many "ordinary Joe's" will find themselves in the middle of hundreds of angry protesters aiming their grief towards him, so I'm not sure that it is easily comparable to this situation.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson has asked Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Constabulary to review policing tactics.

I'd love to hear what the idiots who defended the Police the first time around have to say about this....
Combined with hitting women, shoving innocent men to the floor and beating up peaceful demonstrators the police have got a hell of a lot to answer for, what a bunch of thugs.
These bastards deserve trouble at the May day protests, i hope the police get what's coming to them... People haven't forgotten the bean fields, the miners strikes or the poll tax riots.
I didn't even hear of this protest, and i only live 5 mnutes down the road!! (a quick search on youtube throws up a few videos on it, with obligatory vile views in the comments) Didn't see any footage with trouble in though, but with the NF, it wouldn't supprise me, you can hardly compare them to ordinary fluffy protesters.

I also like the medias agenda setting, There were large protests in Luton yesterday with upto 300 members of the national front waging full scale riots with the police and trying to get after any muslims they could find.....googled it....not one article.....guess the media are on the anti police bandwagon at the minute with everyone else.

From what I see here the woman is shouting some profanity and acting in a semi-aggressive / provoking manner.
The man has been told that he could not exit.
You comply or you die, simple as that.
