    What, a policeman should just take abuse and have bottles and acid thrown at them, I hope you are not saying they should just accept that, and because they are paid well. No one in our society deserves that abuse just because they are doing a job, just watching Hospital last night was enough to make my blood boil, when it comes to our social changes.

    The problem is that the people doing it stand behind the 'good' protesters and manipulate their movements, leaving usually the innocent ones to take the can as they get involved in the moment.

    An economist in one of the Sundays worked out that the amount of money to protest (just the protesters) must of been in the millions, so why didn't they stay at home and send the money to Oxfam, surely that would of been of a more benefit to poverty.

    Every time there is a G20 summit - it ends up like this -poor little dreadlocked vandal gets hurt and it's all the nasty policemans fault.

    If you go to these protests / rallies/ demonstrations you know how its going to turn out - it happens every time.
    Solution - stay at home and no nasty policemen will hit you with a truncheon


    At least be responsible for your own actions.

    There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won't anymore and who always will. Don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it in your future.

    Sadly there are some that seem incapable of playing nicely.

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    Daleclarke has a point. The newspapers only show a small clip as the bigger picture is not going to sell the news as it will actually show the big picture. The officers policing the protestors are doing a difficult job and have to make a judgement there and then! Before you criticise put yourself in their shoes and imagine what they have to face. Although they get training, a uniform etc.... they are a human being (but that seems to be forgotten). Before we become judge and jury on a small limited clip, wait for the investigation by the IPCC who will have all the material to analyse.

    It shouldnt have happened.
    You sound as though you're trying to excuse what happened. Maybe he could have found another route, but the fact is that he was strolling along minding his own business and doing no harm to anyone, when a copper attacked him from behind for no reason.

    I am not making excuses, I am just pointing out that you only see what the news editor wants you to see and there is no background to it. If the officer has done something wrong when the whole context is examined then I would be the first to call for him to be prosecuted!
