I don't see how the UKUncut video, of the police telling protesters they won't be arrested if they go outside, can have been twisted, unless they hired actors to play the cops. It was a video from a legal association.
Sorry mate... There are some good cops, but plenty of scum as well.

All arrests shown on Youtube e.t.c look illegitimate to those who aren't in the job. I caught a shoplifter a little while back and ended up taking him to the floor very roughly. To a casual observer it would have looked illegitimate and over the top. But then, he was trying to stab me with a syringe and doing what i did was the only way to stop him doing it.

Who cares if they are? My trade union- UCU- refused to condemn the student protest "violence" too. And quite rightly.
Smashing up a few windows is fair game and the riot police ask for whatever they get.

Have you seen the footage? It's not about rough handling, it's about one group of police (I think genuinely believing it) telling people leaving Fortnum and Mason's that they won't be kettled or arrested and then the riot police imposing a kettle and getting the Met officers to arrest them.
It just looks peculiar to me.
