Yet again police are found to be lying in court.
Last week two protesters were found not guilty of violent
disorder and actual bodily harm against police officers, which they were
accused of committing during a Cardiff Uncut protest at a bank on the
2nd of May last year. As a result of the acquittal, the CCTV footage of
the event can now be released, and it tells a remarkably different story
to what was presented as evidence against the two men.
The video shows police charging into the protesters, punching,
kneeing, choking and hurling members of the group around the room. One
defendant, 26-year-old Josh Longbottom, is held in a chokehold. In the
scuffle the second defendant, Pete Simpson, aged 30, approaches his
friend Josh before being picked up by the throat and slammed into the
grond. More here
