If you ever find yourself bullied by cops simply for having the gall to stand up to them then take heart. Nothing that happens to you is likely to be as bad as what happened to Ian Puddick. Who suffered the worst abuse of police powers we have ever seen. (This unofficial record breaker having stood since 2011)
Imagine 13 police officers dressed in riot gear and armed to the teeth raiding your house in the small hours. And for what? An allegation of harassment, thats what.
But no ordinary claim of harassment of course. A claim of harassment from some over privileged insurance tosspot (Tim Haynes) who has the City of London police in his back pocket and can drum up some apocalyptic cavalry just by virtue of his status.
Anyone who still believes the police are anything other than violent bellhops for the government and big business should take a look at this 10 minute video from a correspondent of Channel 4 ‘Despatches’.
It really puts into perspective just how dangerous the police platitude of “just doing our jobs mate” can really be.
