Father-of-two sprayed in the face with powerful chemical and hit with baton by police after peaceful protest in Tesco store over faulty TV.
Another case of Police abusing their power, we are seeing this more and more and this has to stop.
This bloke was having a peaceful protest, at what point did it warrant him being sprayed in the face and hit with a baton by police? He was one guy on his own, sitting on a chair protesting and looking at the picture in the article he is casually sitting there.
‘The first officers arrived at the scene approximately 10 minutes after the call but when the man became aggressive, officers called for emergency assistance and a further four units were called as precaution.’
If you look at the pictures on the DM article, he is sitting on a chair with his arms behind the chair and the police are trying to get his arms, another picture shows him on the floor in front of the chair, so how did he become aggressive? He was sitting on a chair with no use of his hands.
I have seen first-hand how police can be, where I use to live, someone was arrested and posed no threat to anyone, he was face down on the floor with handcuffs on and I witnessed an officer kicking the crap out of him.
When they are faced with proper criminals the police back off. I know this from personal experience, I had something happen nearly 2 years ago involving a foreign gang and put it this way, it was totally a waste of time going through the system, not all evidence was taken at/from the scene and I forced them to take some evidence, evidence was not used or lost, 2 people disappear not to be seen since and so much more, the list goes on and on.
This is a link to a video of a police officer stamping on someone’s head, the person is already on the floor handcuffed, and I have also included a slowed shorter version which shows it clearly and the original footage.
The Police really need to sharpen up their acts and get tough on full time criminals and stop abusing their power on the everyday person.
Below is a link to show another way they abuse their power http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-19324797, which includes unauthorised use of police databases, a police officer used the database to look up information about vulnerable women from Derby’s red light district. He was jailed for two-and-a-half years for having sex with a prostitute while on duty. One officer was disciplined for looking at pornographic websites on a police computer.
Today Cumbria Police chief suspended during misconduct probe
In this day, you would think the police would behave to set an example, but this is not the case, we are seeing more and more abuse of their power, be it for self- gain or against the normal every day person. How can we, the average person, trust the police when abuse of power is shown on a regular basis, I personally cannot, but that is more to do with my personal experiences. A lot of people have lost faith in the police and would rather sort things out themselves than go through the police, this I can fully understand, but I am not saying it is right, but I do understand how people get to feel like this, as this is how I feel.
The police have tried to show they are ok, by going to schools and trying to befriend children at a young age, this will work until the child gets older and form their own opinions from their own experiences and what they see.
Shame as the old style policing was better not perfect, but at a least you knew something would be done if a crime happened against you and you didn’t have to be worried about the type of force the police might use if you happen to get arrested for things such as, protesting while sitting in a chair in Tesco’s.
Yes there are some good police officers but they are few and far between…
