Policing the G20






There has been much publicity about the policing of the G20 protests in London following the death of a paper seller who wasn't even part of the demonstration. There have been a couple of further high profile complaints and a number of others, one of which from my son.  He was helping a woman who had fallen when  a policeman who did not have numbers displayed on his shoulders hit him across the face with his baton. He has lodged a complaint.


More generally a petition has been set up to oppose the use of the tactics of  'kettling', (the corralling of everyone into a confined area from which no-one can exit, often for hours at a time) batons and other aggressive police tactics at entirely peaceful protests.
