Re: 'Scuse me, this is England isn't it? Protest Death Police Assault

Am I living in England? Can this be covered up or whitewashed?


What an absolute disgrace, especially the way the police appear to have been caught blatantly lying to the press (quoted from a BBC website report):

"The City of London Police said: 'A post-mortem examination found he died of natural causes. [He] suffered a sudden heart attack while on his way home from work. The family thanked all the people who rushed to Ian's aid when he collapsed and said how grateful they are for all the efforts that were made to help him.....'

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said at the time that officers treating him had bottles thrown at them by protesters."


We'll see how things play out tomorrow, and the level of coverage the story gets. If this doesn't end up all over the news then questions must be asked not only of the police, but also the government and even more so the workings of the media.
