The G20 has thrown the Police into sharp focus over the last few weeks, they seem to be recruiting from the lower reaches of the food chain, and their blind obediance to the State rather than the Law is becoming more than a little cause for concern. One now thinks of the Securitate than Dixon.

Police officers in abuse case accused of 60 other assaults
Met reveals four were subject of dozens of allegations by black or Asian men
• March 2007: one officer is accused of bundling a man into the back of a police van where he was told to "get on his knees". When he replied this was not Guantánamo Bay he claims the officer grabbed him round the neck and "discharged his CS gas while continuing to hold his throat". He says he was then thrown from the van, leaving him with eye, neck and head injuries. According to the document no action was taken because the complaint was either "incapable of proof" or there was "no case to answer".
• November 2005: two of the officers were accused by a "black male" of attacking him in the back of a police van. The document states that he was subjected to "constant kicking to his head and stomach (approx 12 kicks). Head lifted off the floor by grabbing his right ear and lifting head." The attack left the man with bruising and swelling to his face but the case was not pursued, the Met said, because of "non-cooperation" by the complainant.
• October 2005: the document stated that two of the officers were involved in another assault on a "black male". It read: "In van repeatedly assaulted - kicks to the face, stamps on his head whilst handcuffed." The victim said afterwards he "felt like he might die". Vomiting and blood coming out of his ears, black swollen eye, lip busted, hands very swollen.
• June 2003: two officers accused of beating a "black male" in the back of the TSG van. "The beating continued in the van and in a search room at the station."
The allegations against the officers came to light after the high court issued a disclosure order on 13 February demanding that the Metropolitan police release all "similar fact allegations" against the officers involved in the Ahmad case.
"Scotland Yard admit there are concerns about the conduct of the officers. Although the Independent Police Complaints Commission supervised an investigation carried out by the Met, none of the officers has been disciplined for the assault on Ahmad and all but one are still working in the territorial support group"
Basically the TSG is an unaccountable, ski mask wearing, badge number hiding, racist,violent private army whose only nod towards the Law is wearing the uniform of Her Majesties Constabulary.
Damien Green MP amazingly enough is not going to face charges in the politically motivated arrest and search of his offices
Bob Quick has resigned from the Met, perhaps he can tell us by being called before the Parliamentary Priviliges Committee how much did Jacqui Smith know about the raid on the Parliamentary Estate
If you are in the Territorial Support Group (Terrors)or Riot Squad you can go for a little drinkie in the company car.
Sometimes these officers have enough time of their hands to indulge in currency dealing as well, and for light relief allegedly making threats to kill.
