Re: Yet again the Met get away with manslaughter [was murder]

Assuming that he was of average or above intelligence, he chose to walk slowly, hands in pockets almost in a “whistle while you walk down a quiet lane” posture.
Since when is that a crime or even suspicious ?

He was either provocative or stumbling blind drunk. Maybe a few too many pints caused the damaged liver and hemorrhaging stomach for which the autopsy indicated that he died.
He was neither.
The autopsy was inconclusive.

A shove in the back does not result in deadly organ failure. That takes years of unhealthy living. Although the shove was harder than perhaps necessary, there was no reason to think that it would have caused the death of an otherwise healthy adult.
You draw far too many conclusions about how he died and what killed him.
Do you really think for one minute he would have died of the same on the way home without the assault by the Police ?

Simply moving out of the way when asked and protesting in the designated area would have prevented the entire incident.
He was an innocent man going about lawful business, doing the same thing he did every day in that spot, walking home. He was not drunk. He was walking away from the Police , posing no threat whatsoever, not breaching any peace. He was clearly separate to the protesters that the Police had been watching all along. I submit that the Policeman lost it due to pressure at not being able to be the aggressor in a situation that they clearly enjoy being aggressive in. The Met are infamous for over excessive aggression towards protesters. This Policemen overstepped the mark and a man died directly from the policeman's actions.

If we continue to let things like this pass without intervention and subjecting the guilty to British Justice then we are sending out the wrong signals. Signals that Policemen like this will interpret as a free reign to commit these acts again without recourse. Signals that other Policemen will pick up on. This incident begs for an example to be made.
