Ian Tomlinson

22 July 2010

Is there anybody in Britain who could have got away with forcibly pushing Ian Tomlinson to the floor and got away with it....except a British police officer?

Er, no.

What's really sad is that it isn't a surprise.

The CPS could have charged the officer if they'd done so within 6 months of the incident, but funnily enough it took 16 months for them to decide what to do. Funny that.

Well done British justice. Another fine day for us all.
