The cop in this video believes that filming the back of a police station is a criminal offence. And that anyone who doesn’t account for themselves, when asked questions they are not obliged to answer, must then be searched by force.

What this uniformed thug then demonstrates is a text book example of false imprisonment, civil assault and battery, all of which could cost Norfolk Police several thousands of pounds in damages. There is no defence to this officer’s actions – notwithstanding the fact that he claims to be an Inspector and should know better – and despite the fact the cameraman complained to the Professional Standards Department of Norfolk Police, and was swiftly fobbed off with the usual cut-and-paste lies that the cop was not at fault.
Obviously I disagree.
Firstly, the officer has committed multiple civil wrongs and the criminal offence of common assault with his heavy-handed and entirely baseless attack on the victim. He had no powers to search at the moment he chose, and did so to punish the cameraman for ‘daring to talk back’ and walking away when the officer was in the middle of flexing his lack of authority.
What really made me laugh during this video was the suggestion that terrorists might want to attack this officer’s police station. Besides the fact that no uniformed officer outside of a special terrorist unit has ever SEEN a real life terrorist, let alone apprehended one, why on earth would terrorists want to blow up their own allies? We all know how the police have done their utmost to assist the Jihadists in raping and ruining this country over the last two decades, and the idea that this white skinned Brit, stood at the back of the station with his own child, is a terrorist, is just wishful thinking on this officer’s sick mind.
As the cameraman rightly points out : “So if I film Argos, am I going to bomb it?” To which the officer responds “I don’t know.” Well, Is that a fact?
I’m not going to set out the details of the various causes of action, nor examine precisely where all the different abuses of police powers lay, as I have done this in countless other articles of this nature. Instead, I want to promote this video as a typical example of unlawful police aggression, how corrupt the police complaints process is for excusing this animal and of course an illustration of a lawsuit just waiting to happen.
