Excuse me, but this is perhaps the most sensationalist headline, that I have ever heard. It is clearly not the case that cops have seized control of
the town involved. First of all , leading a woman from a council meeting is not seizing control, although for sure, it bodes ill for the integrity of
the council persons, and the police's motives in this case.
However, to have seized control of the town, they would have had to secure the perimeter of the town, set up check points and road blocks, blockaded
or placed under house arrest anyone and everyone who disagreed with thier take over, and established a cordon around the town preventing outside
forces from liberating said area from the illegal take over by rogue police personel. If you can still have a crap, smoke a cig, drink a beer, and
leave or enter the town when ever you fancy , then there is no take over.
What happened here is something nasty, that speaks of deeper troubles, but it is nothing more than a woman being lead from a council chamber. It is
not a military coup, nor is it a police take over of the running of the town. If it were, the Mayor would be dead and strung up outside his offices,
and the cheif of police would be sat in his chair, smoking his cigars, and drinking his whiskey.
Fact based headlines seem in short supply, but theres no need to reinforce a bad headline (which one cannot change due to T&C) with more of the same
