Video Of Police Pulling Disabled Protester From His Wheelchair

Recommended Posts

Can't really see what's going on from the video tbh.

I'd like to think they didn't just pick on a guy for no reason, it's not like there weren't plenty of Nu Liebour and Socialist worker types they couldn't have picked up eh.

The guy can't actually move the wheelchair himself, so I struggle to see what kind of threat he would have posed :lol:

Maybe he was saying things - very slowly - that they didn't like :rolleyes:

Just because you are in a wheelchair does not mean you are not a complete c0ck and capable of violence

After seeing the bloke on the BCC this morning he did seem to be a bit of a **** !!

He did make some decent points about Freedom in this country and abroad and all that. However very preachy. In fact - quite Injin like if I do say :D

The Police were probbaly cocks as well though.

I take it that you didn't bother to watch the video....

When you have cerebral palsy and are physically incapable of even pushing the thing yourself (or of talking without a great deal of effort) I very much doubt the level of "violence" you are capable of :P

With police like you two, it's no wonder the Met can't even handle a protest without resorting to wanton violence <_<

The telling part of the clip for me is at the end when 2 other coppers have to drag their thug mate away, they knew he was out of order and dragged him back before he went too far imo

Disabled people do not want your sympathy or sentiment and want to be treated the same as everyone else. So there is no reason why a person in a wheelchair cannot be arrested.

In this case, the film is quite clear, the man was pulled out of his chair, across the road and dumped on the pavement.

He was NOT arrested, so what power did the officer have to do this?

It could be argued that he was quelling a breach of the peace, but the safety implications of manhandling a paralysed person would tend to over ride this argument.

The film seems to show other officers taking the 'offending' officers away................forcibly.

Not exactly an assault, but it would seem the officer lost his head.

I hope the man gets substantial damages.

Yep. These riot squad guys are as much thugs as the thugs they are lifting. Only difference is that they have a uniform, some heavy armour and a big stick to beat the average Joe around the head with.

If they didn't kettle all protestors, they could maybe pick out the weapon carrying thugs and intervene quicker to remove them from the scene. But I suspect they DO want to tar all protestors with the same brush. Hence the kettling.

He was doing hand brake turns directly in front of plod. He had no tread on his left wheel and was obviously on drugs.

He's an activist out to cause trouble. Can walk 100 yards unaided

I know.

He will also demand to be treated like an able bodied person one minute and claim to be crippled when it suits. I have no sympathy for him. He got what he wanted.

It reminds me of bastards who chuck in the race card when it suits. Sad about his illness and definte over reaction by plod but wheeling yourself to one side would have avoided this issue.

They should have just clamped him.

Its about 33 secs in as well. What I dont understand is why they took him from his wheelchair and then dragged him to the pavement, yet when his brother moves the wheel over to where he has been dragged he's prevented from helping his brother get into the wheel chair.

Have to ask what was being said in order to provoke this response from the police. Will be interesting to watch this unfold.

He was giving a bit of a rant on BBC this morning. Not that the result of the previous night is warranted of course. Would need to know more details. However he did appear to be a chap who could be a bit feisty with authority.

The police officer is a paid professional, he should have remained calm.

Has he not issued an apology?

In the old days they'd be buying each other a pint by now. Where's friendly Pc Plod that we see on Balarmory?

David Camerons son has cerebal Palsy too, so It could have even been his son. Maybe David Cameron will now listen to the youth of this´╗┐ country.

The dangerous, that discredits the profession. (Raul Moat police photoshoot)

I see why he was given the taser, and not the rifle! Civillians don't get in his way!

Actually, that would be an assault.

The Metropolitan Police how have you sunk so low :rolleyes:

Saw this on the news and yes, it looks absolutely shocking, really, really bad. The fact that another had had to drag the first one off makes it all the worse.

You do have to be careful with video evidence though as you don't know how it's been edited or what the context was; in this case the video only starts when the cop has his hands on him so we don't know what happend immediately before or what the reason he may have been doing it, if there was indeed a legitimate reason.

I tend to agree. In the interview I saw he said quite clearly that he thought the only reason for the existence of the police is to protect the interests of the government which just makes him sound like a TFH tw@t, to be honest.

He may well have been arrested. I think he was dumped in the company of other officers.

It is an assult - if not a lawful arrest. It's also battery and false imprisonment, probably.

Wd don't know what happened to produce this result though as the video (presumably produced by the wheelchair man's fellow demonstrators) only starts at the point at which the cop has hold of him. If he's simply dragged a disabled guy out of his wheel chair for no apparent reason then I'd agree that he should appoloigise and be disiplined.

There is likely to be more to this (which still may not justify it) but we don't know what it is yet. We do know that he is known to the poilce from previous demos because he said so on the news last night.

Not to mention using an illegal firearm as well. The Taser Rifle isnt licenced for use in the UK thus the Police were using an illegal firearm.

That's not correct on various points. He isn't holding a tazer "rifle". There is no such thing as a tazer "rifle". There is a tazer round which is designed to be fired from a shot-gun which was another weapon used at the Moat stand-off. A particular weapon does not need to be "licensed" for police use, the police can use anything the like, although there is a Home Office approval procedure, I think. The licensing issue with the one at the Moat incident was one of the company supplying them; their license to supply them under sec.5 of the Firearms Act did not allow them to supply them direct to police forces, which they did in this case.
