We can't ignore this

I am slightly lost for words as I write this, I find it difficult to believe that this footage is actually something that happened in the UK. In broad daylight.

It looks very much as though the Police may have been responsible for this man's death and then lied about it afterwards.

Ian Tomlinson was, as we understand, not a protester. He was just walking home from work. From this footage, it appears that he was just minding his own business. Today's story from the Guardian website is here and it looks like there will be more tomorrow.
