Wow it is seriously messed up people making excuses for police brutality.
I was also at the G20 protest's kettled for hour's for no apparent reason ,I also remember seeing ian thomlinson on the floor after being pushed by a nazi-esque cop.
Fact of the matter is if on that day NOT one single policeman was present it would have been an amazing day, The atmosphere was like nothing i had seen before.
I went by myself and ended up talking to a loads of like minded people, the atmosphere was amazing
If the police had not been there it would of been one giant street party/carnival.
Untill the police started kettling and hitting people it was amazing.
What do you expect people to do when you act like that towards them?
BooHoo one window got smashed! what about the bodies of hundred's of INNOCENT people? But no the media concentrated on the window of a bank getting smashed!
It worked nicely though judging by some people's attitude's on this thread

I'm not blinkered enough to see that the mahority of the protesters would have stayed peacefull if there had been no police presense that day, but what about the ones that were indeed there for trouble?
Can you not at least agree that the police were needed there for the likes of this minority?
