It's not just the death of Ian, and the seeming immunity of police officers to prosecution which should concern us but the way in which peaceful protest is being increasingly criminalised. Protesters are being treated as if they are terrorists. The best recent example of this was when peaceful climate change protesters were harassed by police to the extent that loud music was played to keep them awake at night and even children's crayons were confiscated.
I wish Ian Tomlinson's family all the best with their continuing campaign to get justice for him. Eventually, they may have to bring a private prosecution. If you want to find out more, or help, you can visit their website here.
