editor's note: Why would the media want this info out? Either because there are concerned writers for this particular media corporation, or it's simply that the establishment WANTS a hot war between the people & police, so they can bring in the military. The police need to know that they too are under globalist control, and their food & drink is bring poisoned with Fluoride, Aspartame, mercury, etc. as well.

    In the fortnight since the G20 protests in London, the Guardian has received video footage from a number of people that appears to show police using excessive force or questionable tactics in dealing with demonstrators and the press.

    The best-known video was sent by a New York fund manager early last week. It shows Ian Tomlinson, who was attempting to return home on the evening of the first day's protests, on 1 April, being pushed to the ground by a police officer.

    Here is a list of the footage received over this period, displayed in chronological order according to when the events took place. The Guardian is passing newly obtained footage to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, with the permission of those who shot the films.

    Note: Most of the video footage contains violence, and one includes swearing.

    In footage shot by a worker trying to walk home, who was not involved in the protests, police can be seen tackling demonstrators. Near the end of the short sequence it appears that one officer pulls someone – possibly a woman – violently to the ground.

    Lines of riot police can be seen advancing on people who had been taking part in the climate camp protests, in which demonstrators erected tents across a street in the City. The riot officers can be seen shoving people back with their shields as well as striking people with batons and, at times, the edges of their shields. Most protesters put their hands in the air to indicate non-resistance, and chant: "This is not a riot".

    A City of London police officer approaches a group of photographers and camera crews and orders them to leave the area for a period of about 30 minutes or face arrest. The instruction is made under section 14 of the Public Order Act, which is intended primarily to disperse potentially disruptive or violent gatherings. The Metropolitan police, which led the G20 operations, later apologised for using the measure on members of the press.

    At a vigil for Tomlinson, a police officer is seen apparently slapping a woman twice with the back of his hand. As she remonstrates with him further, he is shown seemingly striking her on the legs with his baton, causing her to fall. The Metropolitan police have suspended the sergeant involved, a member of the Territorial Support Group.
