"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Another One

For the second time this week footage has been released of police manhandling a man and punching him in the head. He'd called for assistance after being stabbed but the police were no angels of mercy. It's true that the man is half-clothed and he does try to crawl away from them (alcohol involved?) but there's no audio so we don't know what was said beforehand.  The man was arrested and charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer but released after eleven hours when the charges were dropped.

It's definitely ott - as well as being punched eight times in the head (where he was wounded) his head is forced to the ground, he's thumped in the back and he's sat upon, all while he's handcuffed behind his back. By the time the video ended I counted 11/12 officers milling around. Perhaps those involved (including the WPC) should consider signing up for EuroGendFor - they're looking for armed thugs to get to grips with 'citizens' on European streets.

The first incident: 'ello, 'ello, 'ello
