“I saw armed cops being deployed against schoolchildren”

November 25, 2010

I don’t really want to comment on this, but the  simple quote

“I didn’t understand quite how bad things had become in this country until I saw armed cops being deployed against schoolchildren in the middle of Whitehall.”

says it all.

And from the Guardian

“police mounted on horses charged at about 1,000 students”

“17 people were treated for injuries in London. Of them, 13 needed hospital treatment”

“some parents arrived at the police cordon pleading for their children to be released”
