I was going to say 'his sort* probably benefit from a good tasering' but then noticed it wasn't the NAAFI, So I won't do that.
On a serious note it seems odd that if he had the police training he'd go through a cordon, approach officers who I'd assume were a bit busy.
An odd time of day to be acting all public spirited. However if he did act so calmly, and did try to explain himself even when he was surrounded, (seriously, he didn't swear or get aggressive at all?) then the coppers have fucked up right royally. Personally I'm assuming that the blame is somwhere in the middle, both sides fucked up (or one of them was looking for a reason to make a complaint)
Basically it all stinks to me.

The problem is, that in any confrontation the Met have with black people, or where the matter doesn't pan out the way that person wants, they will be accused of racism. In my many years of working shitty council schemes, I attended many street disturbances and on quite a few occasions was approached by interfering busybodies who had nothing to do with the matter and had to be told to fuck off. The difference was that in my neck of the woods, these people were white, so racism wasn't a charge that could be levelled.

What concerns me deeply is a the police/prosecution case resulted in acquittal. Sadly my google-fu is weak this morning and I cannot find a contemporaneous report of the aquittal. Intersting what you say about driving offences, but without evidence of other dishonesty (ie, failure to disclose) that would hardly go to character in a criminal trial.
The bottom line is the evidence against was not compelling enought to convict
This lad clearly learnt something at Hendon, as he states his notes below were written in the cells about five hours after the incident. I wonder if the coppers IRB's are anything like as detailed?

I stand by my remarks in regards of Taser, I genuinely believe correctly deployed it stops more problems than it starts.

Of course, this is also a fair comment too;
And flavour of the month again is, of course, that the cops are institutionally racist, particularly if they belong to the Met. A sceptical commentator might wonder at how closely this new round of cop-bashing has followed on the heels of the judicial and police enquiries into the news media’s own morally untenable practices.
