So let me get this right:
an innocent passer-by gets fatally assaulted by an out-of-control policeman who's in full riot gear. It's captured on video and shown for all the whole country to see – they have an absurdly long official enquiry only to conclude that because of 'technical reasons' no one is going to face a trial.
And what sort of message does this send out to the general public do you think?
Welcome to Police State Britain.
Ian Tomlinson death: police officer will not face criminal charges.
