Jim Jay has evidence that the police also obstructed the ambulance as it tried to get to Ian Tomlinson, which is something the false statement the police put out through the gullible media accused protesters of. Maybe a good rule with police statements is to assume projection in an attempt to deny their culpability. But also form that post, the police stopped photographers form recording their activity, read the article from the British Journal of Photography, having been caught the Met ‘apologise’ which sounds so lovely and polite until you realise their objective has been achieved and this is after the fact PR. Also ask yourself if the official press were barred and pictures force deleted by police of everyone else then what record to contradict the police falsehoods covering up Ian Tomlinson’s murder, the CCTV? The same CCTV that mysteriously stops working at crucial times & places when the police injure or kill someone? And note the police photograph and film the public constantly for a database they denied existed.
Update: Via HarpyMarx, the cop is on suspension but we learn-
The officer in the video, who was wearing riot gear and whose face was covered by a balaclava, identified himself to his manager and the IPCC yesterday as fresh pictures suggested he had removed his shoulder number and covered his face with a balaclava before hitting Tomlinson with a baton and then pushing him to the ground on Cornhill, in the City of London, last Wednesday.
Shows premeditation to me, bet he’s lawyered up like a mofo.
