    UK - Ian Tomlinson, 47, dies after assault by police officer, London, 1 April 2009

    Freed, the '**** in police uniform': What jury weren't told about the PC cleared of G20 killing (Daily Mail)
    A riot squad officer was denounced as a ‘**** in uniform’ yesterday as he was cleared of killing an innocent bystander.

    Ian Tomlinson died after PC Simon Harwood lashed him with a baton and shoved him to the ground.

    The 45-year-old officer had an appalling record of complaints against him for violence in the years before the incident.

    Yet such ‘prejudicial’ details were kept from the jury, who cleared him of manslaughter in a verdict described as a ‘joke’ by the family of Ian Tomlinson who died during the London G20 protests; family vows to seek 'justice' in the civil courts after the PC accused of his manslaughter was cleared today.

    Please, please watch this video. I am so angry about this, it was an unprovoked attack on a hapless bystander. Mr Tomlinson may have been homeless once and an alcoholic but he did not deserve to die like this

    Scotland Yard apologises but this is not good enough. Most of our cops here are good people but the ****s need to be weeded out
