Words cannot describe how I feel after watching that! I am sick and tired of the police thinking they can do what they want, without any repercussions, remember Ian Tomlinson? smacked to the ground by a policeman at the G20 who just by chance 'wasn't wearing ID' so he can't be prosecuted! what a #ing joke! it makes my blood boil!!!!!!!!!!!
Police are worthless individuals who have lost all sense of correct behaviour and have allowed their egos to envelop them.

I see many people slamming the Police for brutality and aggressive behaviour, yet I'd doubt very much many of those people who are doing that would have the balls to do the job that they do.
The Police are there to keep the peace, protect civilians and property.
Without that, there would be anarchy.
What one earth do you think will happen if the Police just sit back and allow groups of protesters to do whatever they want to get "their own message" across to whoever it is intended?
Police are always outnumbered, they are just as human as we are and feel fear like we all can do under stressful situations.
I'm all for peaceful demonstrations, but we all know where there are peaceful demonstrators; it will attract those that are looking to turn it violent.
Yes, it was awful to see that disabled guy getting dragged out of the wheelchair. As for not being able to cause harm due to his disability, well in one clip, he actually stood up from his chair briefly to shout in the face of a fully kitted riot policeman. I'm sure he is equally able to throw a rock too.
Are you saying being a police officer is a dangerous job? What aload of tosh.
The police are there to protect government. They should be there to serve the people. Something they've long since forgotten.
The government operate illegally. Where are the police beating and harassing politicians? Politicians break serious laws every day. Where are the police to punish them?
Yet get a few anti-government protestors and the police are out to serve beatings. The police have long been without honour.

You're not being serious are you? How many jobs do you know of that would ask you to confront and deal with violent people?
If the police have to deal with anyone evan slightly violent , then they take about 20 officers. They take at least 3 officers for a teen age shop lifter. AND they are tooled up.edit on 14-12-2010 by ThePeopleParty because: (no reason given)

The police are aggressive, I have witnessed first hand how brutal arrogant and malicious they can be.
I was once In the town with my girl friend and we started having an argument out side of a bar, and she hit me with her bag and the next thing I know I was hand cuffed and dragged into a riot van by two officers. When i got to the station these two officers accused me of hitting my girl friend, which me my girl friend and the two officers knew wasnt true.
anyway they kept me in over night and I was telling them to go check the cctv or interview my gf and find out the truth, but they wouldnt have none of it, I only got out without going to court because I signed a piece of paper saying I would behave for 12 months, I know I shouldnt of signed it but anyone who has just spent the night in cells will tell you, you just want to get out and go home.
Another time some guy grabbed my girlfriends friend in a bar and wouldnt let her go, so I told him to get off her which he did only to grab a hold of my girlfriend, so I shoved him and he came at me with a bottle but I hit him as im sure anyone would in that situation, and as the bouncers/security stepped in to settle it, me my girlfriend and her friend left the bar.
We got about 40 yards down the street when a police man stopped me and asked if I had just been fighting in that bar, as I looked back I saw the guy talking to police out side of the bar and I knew he was blaming me for starting it and as he was bleeding from the incident I ran off, I ran for about 5 mins through a crowded area before turning into the queens gardens( a big field area with flowers and surrounded by trees, this is where the police cought me and about 5 of them jumped on top of me and on of them started kneeing me in my head so hard that with every blow my eye sight flashed black.
I may not of ran from the police the time I fought with that kid in the bar if it was not for losing trust in them a few years before, When my brother got into a fight and we had some guys come round and start smashing my mams house windows, some of the glass shattered onto my brothers daughter who was only around 9 motnhs old at the time.
So to stop this attack on my mams house me and my brother went outside to fight these guys until police got there (whom by the way my sister had rang) and before these guys got into the house with the kids in, To cut a long story short they came out of it worse off and as the police arrived they where a bit bloody and me and my bro got arrested and charged with GBH with intent, ABH, assault and a fray.
While me and my bro was locked up in cells waiting to attend court these guys went back to my mams house and my house while there was just my girlfriend and kid and my brothers gf and kid in the house and smashed all the windows on my house and the rest on my mams.
Now I might not be perfect and there are things I could of done better in all these circumstances but from my point of view I was defending my self or my family on two of these occasion and the other was just a blatant lie.
All the police care about is getting a conviction and not who is right or wrong.
