Haven't the police always bullied and beaten people up? I thought that and driving around in fast cars was why people joined up.

Did anyone listen to Ian Collins on Talksport today on this very subject. Among other things, it gave an alternative opinion and it also wondered if you replaced the words "Iraq war veteran" with "chav hoodie", would you have got the same public outcry.
Have you seen the video clip fireball ? How many people want the police to get tougher on yobs and pissed up vermin, yet mention those fluffy words "Iraq war veteran" and all of a sudden, the whole country is in a state of mourning.
get over it and move on FFS

Well, they we are then. It's okay for the police to beat people up. Who guards the guards, as they used to say.

Iraq war veteran? Why does that matter?! Three police officers use unnecessary force to subdue one bloke who.........whistled on a Tuesday? No - he was probably a bit lairy. There are indeed way too many incidences where the police go OTT. They just love it if you give them a reason to put their hands on you and even more if the accosted struggles a tad. Police state? No. There are idiots in the police force and even more idiots drunk and disorderly in most town centres on an evening. If he was being lairy he had it coming. If the policeman is so stupid he got caught on CCTV - he had it coming too. That's life.
