    There was a video to go with it but it seems to have gone from Youtube now.

    I really wish people would make an effort to explain what their new threads are about.

    These photos confirm what i have been thinking, the plod were not trying to control anarchist rioters, every photo i have seen appears to show them up against hundreds of paparazzi!

    slapping women in the face seems to grab the photographers attention.

    So that's another violent cop out of control. Did you see how peaceful and calm everything was until the police started mixing it up?

    This was on April 2nd by the way, so no lessons learnt from the Ian Tomlinson events, which was what brought these people down to the Bank for the second day.

    Where they faced yet more police thuggery.

    Looks like the press are going to have a field day judging by the people sniffing for info in that indymedia thread.

    this footage has just been reported on the 6'O Clock News on BBC1 so it seems only a matter of time till the scumbag police officer is foundout.

    they made mention of the fact he didnt have his badge on (which is against regulation), the slap of the face and then the batton smash to her legs

    matter has now been referred to IPCC

    Come on, there were some there trying to get a reaction from the police, hence the scores of people carrying video cameras, hoping to get something juicy.
    The woman and others, jumped on a minor incident where the black bloke was pushed, and deliberately inflamed it, then screamed police brutality when they got a reaction from the police, what they were looking for.

    police are paid to keep the peace, not to act like thugs when they feel 'threatened'. nothing justifies an assault on a defenceless, un-armed woman no taller than 5 foot. it's sickening

    So dirty pig slags are just allowed to wallop people these days? Instead of reasonable restraint, like they show you on the telly visual box? You know, where they grab someone, wrestle them to the floor and cuff them. And she was only a little lass, that copper was a fair bit bigger than she was. He could have just grabbed her arm and cuffed her if she was being a naughty girl.

    Take the rose tinted specs off, and you might actually be able to see what's going on.

    Not much video on the net of protesters attacking police - I wonder why?:confused:

    From the Times.

    The officer’s face is visible but, unlike his colleagues in the pictures, his number is hidden. The shoulder epaulettes on his jacket look to have been covered up by strips of grey material.

    One for the miners' strike nostalgists

    Police to probe 'woman assault'

    The Metropolitan Police said video footage on YouTube which appears to show an officer hitting a woman during the G20 protests would be examined.

    The footage shows the woman swearing at a police officer who then appears to hit her in the face.

    The officer also apparently strikes the woman on the leg with his baton.

    The Independent Police Complaints Commission said it had received a number of complaints about the action of officers at the protests in London.

    A statement from the Met said: "The apparent actions of this officer raise immediate concerns.

    "Once we were notified of this footage by a media agency this afternoon we began to take steps to identify this officer and are currently in the process of referring the incident to the IPCC.

    "Every officer is accountable under law, and fully aware of the scrutiny that their actions can be held open to.

    "The decision to use force is made by the individual police officer, and they must account for that."

    I know, it's plain to see. But I will try and explain it, nice and slowly for you.

    Because he's feebly trying to justify why it's ok for a 6foot+ copper (or any copper for that matter) to

    a- give the young girl in the video a back handed slap, with nice big thick gloves on, because she stood up for someone else getting pushed around. And then

    b- to whack her in the leg with a baton (which can easily break bones) because she had the gaul to complain about it.

    Read the words here, try and put them together. See if any of the things you learnt at school come flooding back :)

    She punched him in the back or did you forget to see that part?I'd want to keep away somebody who chose to attack me when surrounded by hundreds of people baying for my blood.

    Totally agree some of them were trying to get a reaction so that they could play the victim.
