Is this right

Yet another anti police thread ronald?

Of course it's right.

If the video footage is to be believed it clearly showed an assault, rather than restraint, and he has been rightly convicted.

if the three police had been wearing football tops instead of being in uniform would two of the three have been aquitted?

Based on the video clip, it appears that the two aided an assault by the third. Their failure to restrain their colleague does them no credit at all.

Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court gave him a fair trial and found him guilty so it's right that the Special constable was convicted.

The police don't always do everything right.

I really do give up - of course it's right - the video is quite clear.

I wasent commenting on the article itself,but the fact that ronald allways seems to sniff out everything associated with police doing the wrong thing thing,not any of the good work they do.

I've pointed that out before in other posts of his!

what possesses you to ask 'is this right?'

The Special constable was convicted of assault and perjury by a jury, he was filmed committing the assault. Of course it's right that he was convicted - that must be obvious to anyone.

This isn't a topic for discussion, it's a minor news story.
