In case you are wondering why protesters got violent watch this:
If police launch a truncheon attack like this one at protesters, which could have injured, even killed people, then I find it very much justified that the protesters defended themselves against it.
And now listen to this BBC ‘interview’…
Added: 13. December 2010
20yr old disabled protester Jody McIntyre was disgracefully dragged from his wheelchair by four MET police officers during student protests against the two tier education system being introduced to the UK.
BBC anchorman Ben Brown begins by badgering the shocked victim who suffers from Cerebal Palsy, for not reporting the incident immediately, but who was he going to call, the police or the Ghost Busters??
Next the BBC man suggests that Mr McIntyre menaced the officers by “wheeling towards them”, only to be told by Jody that he has no physical control of his chair. Jody was then asked if he threw any missiles at police, or shouted any abuse that would have provoked the police reaction. What dreadfully soul destroying words did these officers hear??
This is a shameful use of BBC interview intimidation techniques (IIT) against a victim of disgusting police brutality. Shame on the MET police and shame on the BBC.
