A friend, who is also a police office, (an experienced one) told me two years ago, that he's 'been receiving training for massive civil unrest'' (his words) for the previous 4 years!! Tell me they didn't know any of this was going to happen. It's been planned for God's sake! People have to get tactical.

Trouble is that the media do not report on peaceful demo's. That's why I would urge anyone who hasn't seen it to watch the film 'Steal This Movie' I posted above.

He had the last laugh anyway, the stupid police probably thought he'd be stuffed without it but little did they know he doesn't always need it. SUCKERS!

I don't think the police should have acted like they did, but I'm not sure why people have this attitude that because he's in a wheelchair he can't possibly have done anything wrong?? Kind of discriminatory don't you think...
Seeing as he loves media attention though, it seems awfully convenient that whatever happened the police decided to pull him out of his wheelchair and someone happened to be there to film it. Should help with his short films and public speeches anyway..
Just to clarify again, before some dick accuses me of thinking there isn't a problem with the police or somehow it was acceptable, I'm not saying that the police were right - I'm just pointing out that the boy wonder might not be so perfect himself.
Personally this ghetto style dress-up in a rap video, which I detest, kind of does it for me.

Yeah I'm probably insulting some swell guy somehow, I don't know anything about him really and I don't care to. But those people judging the police and the situation so quickly don't know what actually happened either, so try and look at it critically rather than screaming NWO and police scum so quickly, no smoke without fire and all that crap.

That's not ghetto style dress up and it's hardly a rap video. It's a video bout inefficient mobility for the disabled. With an Akala track slapped over it.

This is the problem at hand. Not that he's disabled, but that the establishment are suggesting that because he's an activist or a 'revolutionary' that somehow justifies the events, he was 'asking for it'.

The interview is paramount to asking a rape victim, "Why'd you wear short skirts", "Why'd you take several days to put forward a complaint"... "On your blog it says you like sex"

It's RIDICULOUS. Nothing but character assassinations. We can tell that they've already washed your brain into sympathising with the police and seeing peaceful protestors and activists as nothing but trouble makers.

Well done, pat yourself on the back

Interesting to see, that the U.K.'s media is just as controlled at the U.S. media.

Too bad for the media though, because when the Revolution starts, they will be on the losing end, and the people won't forget what they did.

It's a simple thing really, if you think a disabled man was going to do damage to riot police or not? Does it matter what his political beliefs are?

From the evidence I've seen, I dont see this man as a threat, no mater how much he "rolled" towards the Police. I actually have a lot of admiration for someone who has a serious disability and is making an effort not to let it effect their lives. He seems to be living life to the full and trying to bring attention to some issues that i believe to be important, not just student fees.

The guy can't even roll his own ****ing wheelchair for christ's sake...

Unless he was sat there with a huge machete or a loaded weapon, then there was no need to have hauled him out of his wheelchair and dragged him along the road..... even if he taunted cops or "rolled towards them" as that prick in the interview seemed to suggest

The police officers in this video are scum..... plain and simple.

This video is sickening.

The way the police goad and provoke people and incite violence is sickening....

It seems you can't even protest any more.

I find the line of questioning this reporter used was clearly directed to make this poor guy look like he instigated the incident. How does his beliefs and computer blogs have any relevance to the way he was physically assaulted? Playing the devil's advocate here...even if he was wheeling his chair towards the police or spewing hate toward the police, the guy is absolutely defenseless! All they would have had to do is grab the back of the wheel chair and push it to the side of the road and put the brake on! You drag a physically handicapped man out of a wheel chair?

As for the time he's waited in filing a complaint, I thought he was right on when he said he wanted to think about his options before filing it. This young man held his own in the interview and spoke well despite his physical limitations. Kudos for him, and shame on BBC.

I was outraged to see the way the BBC journalist handled the interview. It was like watching a car crash in slow motion.

I will be writing an email to the BBC to complain about the way they handled the interview, and the bias it shows in the way their production team rolls over for the police. The BBC service is paid for by the public - but now it seems they've forgotten that. Seems less like independent journalism and more like a propaganda machine with each passing day.

Sickening tactics - a dark day for Britain.

Yes, they also repeat some of the questions multiple times, even though he answered them. They ask him twice if he "threw anything" at the police, and he answers both times. He interrupts him with the same questions at different areas of the interview.

Also, the video distortion is weird. Very strange, a lot of the interview is simply missing. I'd also like to know what the deal was with "filing an official complaint". He kept asking him over and over if he is going to file a complaint, even though the young man keeps saying, "Yes, yes, in the near future, yes."

The anchor is a hack. Well excuse me, the untold number of crew and team members that constructed his talking points on the fly for him to read, are hacks. The anchor is just an idiot.

I do firmly believe that they are trying to incite raw hatred and real violence. They continue to push, prod and strike, but the peaceful masses resist. If everyone just started getting violent, then they could literally do everything they wanted to with absolutely repercussions or accountability. Kind of like, now, except worse.

I always feel dirty and bitter after seeing these incidents, and "interviews".

I kept having the feeling that everytime the guy started to get on to something, the reporter would cut him off with an earlier question. The anchor was no hack, he was being strategic with his words, since he had very little to defend him self with. Well that's the way I see it. BBC is controlled, it's a major media source. I'm sure there are many well conditioned followers that agreed to everything the anchor was trying to imply.

I absolutely agree.

While we have the police and government stating that violence and destruction of property is not acceptable under any circumstance, I would say the same about dragging a disabled student from his chair and across a road.

If those officers truly believed that this young man was a threat, I pity them, they are truly pathetic and certainly do not deserve to be in any position of authority.

If things are anything over there like they are in the US then the elite are using people, top down, bottom up, inside out. They want you to get out into the streets (bottom up) so that they can provoke you, giving them the ability to grant themselves more power to stop you when you get angry and violent (top down) to get you to the point of a full on revolution (inside out) so that when the system collapses they will be there to pick up the pieces to get rid of democracy and grant themselves complete power. I understand people are upset about the things that are going on right now in government on both the right and the left, but don't let yourselves be pawns in their game. They want you to get fired up, think it through.

I watched the video at lunch. Like most posters here, it got me pretty hot under the collar. I thought about it a while, then watched the video again. I think we may be selling the reporter a little short.

Put yourself in his position. Like most normal human beings, you would think those cops are PsOS. But you can’t directly come out and say so, else you would lose your job. Next best thing is to bring out Mr. McIntyre and let him tell the world what you think.

All the while the reporter asks “stupid” questions; obviously stupid questions. “Were you wheeling your chair towards them?” “Did you throw anything at them?” “Are you a revolutionary?” It’s obvious just from looking at the guy he is no threat to anyone, and the reporter gave Mr. McIntyre plenty of opportunity to say what he wanted. Even after the reporter threw in a few obligatory interruptions, McIntyre was allowed to have his say.

Anyone with half a brain would watch this and know that those cops were in the wrong, and the reporter got the story out without damaging his career. Maybe I’m reading too much into this, but it seems that if the reporter really wanted to justify the cops actions, the last thing he would do is put McIntyre on television. There’s just no way to make a man with cerebral palsy in a wheelchair look like he deserved a police beatdown.

If any one thinks that a reporter for a STATE OWNED AND OPPERATED MEDIA is going to criticize his boss THE STATE you belong in an institution for the simple minded.

ABOLISH STATE MEDIA OWNERSHIP!!! We do not need Stalin's Radio Moscow or Hitler's Radio Berlin.

The media a fn pricks and this guy has got no compassion what so ever. Dragging a disabled person across a road is a disgrace whether he provoked the police or not. Almost killing another person shows the lengths the police will go to, so in turn give them back what they like to give out.

I think that's an interesting point! It's safe to assume that the reporter was briefed/scripted/directed or whatever and clearly he had to tow the line to some degree, but maybe he did all he could to let Jody have his say. Despite the idiotic questions, Jody managed to state his case fairly clearly! It would be interesting to see how Sky report it.. I can imagine they didn't bring him on for questioning!

Sickening actions by the police though. The vid has gone pretty viral which is a good thing!

Yep, lets see how they love being stripped naked and dragged down the street while we all stand and laugh at how pathetic they really are.

cant you see whats going on here? its happening in the states as well!
the governments are DELIBERATLEY trying to rile us anger us all so that we fight back, riot, protest etc so that they can instill police states, they want us to rise up!

wikileaks was a deliberate phsycops by the governments to anger people, they are basically flaunting thier corruption in everyones faces to get a reaction and as soon as u react...BANG police state, marshall law, guns taken away, our food source is being monitored by the government pidgeon holing us into eating GM crap, water is tampered with ie flouride and at one point it was discussed to put lithium in it as well....

its all about control and this is just another step in that direction.

Are the first several posters really THAT brainwashed that they can't see what's going on? This is scary. REALLY scary. I sincerely hope that they can wake up soon.

Liberals = Big Government, More control over peoples lives, no personal responsibility
Conservatives = Less Government, More control over own life, personal responsibility

BBC - Left Leaning state controlled media.
Police - State controlled organization

Police violating human rights again, BBC, state controlled media DEFENDS state controlled organization.

And yet this is conservatism's fault? Please wake up and see how brainwashed you are. More government, less control over your own life is not the way to freedom, equality, nor happiness.

But the remark he made in response to the guy in hospital with the head wound from the police baton was out of order, He made it sound as though the protesters deserve it because they through missiles.

This Saturday night just gone, I witnessed two seperate incidents of police/security (in a joint effort mind you) abusing their power. First was at a football ("soccer") match here in Melbourne (the Melbourne derby) when after the game in the North Terrace (the tru supporters active area) we were celebrating our team winning 3-1 against our rival Melbourne team, police sstarted roughing up an elderly man. The good thing is THE PEOPLE FOUGHT BACK! the pig got punched in the head, causing him to lose his hat which was then thrown as a projectile in to his head! The police and stadium security then gathered at the front, this is the picture I took from my phone:

Keep in mind this is only a narrow portion of the crowd who were chanting at the top of our lungs for the duration of the 10 minute stand off. Shortly after this picture someone ripped a flare and people began picking up half full coke bottles etc. and using them as projectiles, hurling them at police WHO THEN RETREATED!

The second incident was going to the Casino here with my girlfriend, one of my best mates and his girlfriend (we are all good friends) and my mate was a little intoxicated admittedly. The chief of security or whatever she was got on her radio and soon there were roughly 6 security guards surrounding us who asked him to leave-which he did peacefully, all the while shrugging off the security guards attempts at provocation, stating calmly he was leaving peacefully. Finally we reached the exit where the polic academy rejects started taunting my mate who lost it and stated in anger that if he wasn't where he was he would # them up (which he would). They then rushed on him with an over exertion of force and applied the same treatment to his pannicking girlfriend. My girlfriend and I followed them and it is beyond me how we just walked in to their 'behind closed doors' room where they were twisting my mates arm behind his back while he screamed in agony and begged me to help get them off him. By this stage there were rouhly 10 security and 6 police. They noticed my girlfriend and I and security were ordered by the head cop to 'piss us off' (Aussie slang for make them leave) conveniently as I had pulled out my phone to start filming. During the escort out they grabbed my girlfriend forcefully as she protested and claimed she wast throwing punches and then when I began to protest I was grabbed on each arm by security. The security on my left was trying to administer some sort of wrist lock/arm submission, little did he know I do Brazillian Jiu Jitsu and was able to easily avoid the submission

Whilst behind these closed doors my mates girlfriend had her pants and top pulled down by two male cops 'searching for weapons'. The point of these two stories is to outline via first hand experience how powerless we can be BUT also how powerless they can be when the people unite!
