Just seen the debacle that occurred in Parliament Square today. One thing that stuck me was the number of Head wounds inflicted on the demonstrators by the Met with metal batons. Made me angry and actually side with the protestors, to see women with head wounds, crying and trying to understand what happened, is cringing and sickening. I was observing some Public Order training recently and the Instructor clearly stated that it is illegal to strike a protestor on the Head and that you should strike them on the shoulder, or face the posibility of legal action. PO Gurus - Is this true? Did Met Officers act illegally today? If so, what is the chance that THEY will be investigated and charged in the way that WE are !
