Heart attack victim - it's a recognised method of restarting a dicky ticker

...because what I'd want if I was cowering in my local bank and hundreds of anti-capitalism 'protesters' came smashing their way in,

... would be a cordon of highly-trained libertarians waving Atlas Shrugged at the mob.

That'd do the job.
Yes indeedy.

Ahhhh modern policing in Britian, you can't beat it, unless you have a bigger stick!

Maybe the photos you seem so worked up about were of PC World's head office, they'd all bought some real crap and wouldn't take it back "In-Store"

A Met Police Officer has just been suspended in connection with Tomlinson's death.

the slippery weasel,  9 April 2009 at 19:02  

Mr. Tomlinson threw himself at the Officer's feet and ferociously chewed the toecap of the Officer's boot.

The only way to calm Mr. Tomlinson was to stroke the back of his head gently with a cold truncheon soaked in lavender water.

Looks like the police medic should be referred to the GMC

Justice,  9 April 2009 at 19:59  

"A Met Police Officer has just been suspended in connection with Tomlinson's death."

Try that sentence out with other job titles

A plumber has just been suspended in connection with a womans death.

A PE Teacher has just been suspended in connection with a pupils death.

A Vicar has just been suspended in connection with a parishioners death. He snuck up behind him at even song, thrashed him accross the back with a candlestick then pushed him headfirst over the altar rail. He is now at home on full C of E pay and his Anglican Union rep.

I prefer the extendable baton - otherwise known as 'The Asp'

Smaller surface are = more lbs per inch = more pain.

James Burr 9 April 2009 at 21:08  

Nothing wrong with this.

Everyone knows that the best way to start a failed heart is with intense, sharp jolts.

Therefore using a yard of cold steel is bound to be more effective than faffing about with your palms.

This Police Medic is thus a hero - who knows how many lives he's saved with his innovative take on heart massage.

British policing - ah isn't it just so special!Cunts!!Suppose they were looking for Brazilian electricians?

Anonymous,  9 April 2009 at 21:19  

Is anyone else surprised at the dearth of CCTV footage (not) released (not) showing this 'incident'?

Old Holborn 9 April 2009 at 21:24  

CCTV only works when they want it to

They turned it off.

police attempy to beat their way out of credit crunch

Mummy x 9 April 2009 at 22:01  

Cor Blimey, that's proper scary. A copper trained in first aid. If I thought he/she was in any way connected to Real Medics, I'd be really worried. How,ever I don't reckon a 10 day course and a packet of plasters really classes you as a Medic. O/H, is this the only photo you have of the medical provision made for the G20 protests. Is that person the only Medic there? If so, who is the person giving aid to Ian T when he was dying?

the cunt should be charged for failing to follow proper procedure - the correct method is to use a taser.

officers from the pr rapid response unit move swiftly to quash claims of police brutality

it's either banned or compulsory 10 April 2009 at 04:07  

And this would seem to be before it even got exiting, the other officers are still wearing their public-friendly Bobby Helmets.

We know they switched off the local CCTV for 'technical' reasons but where was the usual phalanx of Police cameramen and videographers ? Might it be that they were more intent on kicking ass this time rather than identifying people ?

No, the photos were of people destroying property, and the police's job is to protect property as well as people. Incidentally, I wonder how the short-looking single police officer (who I think is a woman) feels, standing in the broken-windowed office of RBS, faced with a mob?

It's not that I want police brutality, but it stands to reason (ie, that based on a knowledge of actual human nature) that if marchers insist on mass protests, with co-ordinated and intimidating chanting, clench-fist salutes, ninja or death masks and other uniforms, and all that 'our arrows shall blot out the sun' stuff, then it's likely to get shady and people will be hurt.

And when that happens, it doesn't make our the police the Gestapo or KGB.
