Taken from Prats in Power
A group of Scotland Yard officers were suspended after "serious allegations" about their behavior during the arrests of five suspects last year, police said Tuesday.London's police force did not go into detail, but Sky News television, the Daily Mail and The Times of London newspapers reported that six officers were accused of "waterboarding" drug suspects.The papers gave varying accounts of the exact technique used by police, with the Times saying that officers poured water on a cloth and placed it over a suspect's face to simulate the experience of drowning. The Daily Mail said police officers repeatedly dunked the suspects' heads in buckets of water. The reason for the discrepancy was not immediately clear.
WHAT THE FUCK.
I don't suppose it comes as any surprise, but that doesn't reduce any anger I feel from hearing this news.
Note the word "suspects": this could quite easily happen to you.
The waterboarding claims will fuel the debate about police conduct that has raged in the wake of hundreds of public complaints of brutality at the G20 protests.
3rd World here we are.
