G20 review to say police protest tactics need reform

It took years but finally Police are being exposed as acting as violent thugs against peaceful protesters.Video evidence is key in all this.

A review of the way protests are dealt with in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is expected to propose major changes to police public order tactics.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson asked the Inspectorate of Constabulary to investigate after the G20 protests in London in April.
Earlier this month, Sgt Delroy Smellie, 47, pleaded not guilty to assaulting demonstrator Nicola Fisher in the City of London during G20. His trial is due to take place in March.The video evidence is clear- he punched a girl half his size and then batoned her.
