Socialist magic

Posted by alangdundee on 20th June 2009

Found on the Daily Maybe site

You can find out more about Ian Saville, the Socialist magician at his website.

I can just imagine the puns he can have during his show – sawing organisations in half, not just destroying one ten quid note, making Westminster disappear etc.

Police Brutality – more step forward

Posted by alangdundee on 20th April 2009

In the past week a number of others victims of assaults by police officers have come forward and more footage has emerged. Some of the footage which has appeared in the press has been cut and other more damning footage has been ignored.

Fitwatch have been helping to identify some of the bad apples who perpetuated these crimes.

There are a number of serious questions about events at the G20 which still need to be answered.

A. We will take as a premise the claims that the police officers involved in these incidents were bad apples and that the majority of police don’t condone or cover up these actions.

  • 1. Why did it take until after footage of these incidents became available for police officers involved to come forward as witnesses if A is true?
  • 2. Why did the media not follow up the lies about there being no CCTV in the areas of the incidents.
  • 3. Why did the first coroner think that Ian Tomlinson died of a heart attack? Was it because the police claimed before hand they suspected this to be the case so they did not investigate further for the cause of death?
  • 4. Why did the police in almost all footage of the events have their badges covered?
  • 5. Will the police who seized peoples cameras and phones and deleted footage and photographs be charged with conspiracy to destroy evidence?

Additionally there are also concerns over any investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission. The police are investigating the police. That is not independence by any stretch of the imagination. It would be like having the investigation into the second homes scandal being carried out by the partner of the accused. What chance is there that those being investigated will be found guilty.

What has been surprising is the high level of critical media coverage of the police during the events. After the execution of Jean Charles de Menezes the majority of the coverage was doubting the claims of witnesses and backing the police story, especially in the immediate aftermath. It is clear the broadsheets smell Browns blood and want to put as much pressure as possible on the government.

Those who have watched the film Injustice will know these were just the latest in a long line of people killed by police or who have died in police custody whos families have had no justice.
