2009年4月、G20サミットが行われたロンドンでは、サミット会場からはかなり離れた市の中心部で、同サミットに対し抗議の意を表するさまざまな立場の人々による抗議行動が行われていました。 抗議行動は参加者(参加団体)数が多く、また前年秋に世界的不況を引き起こした金融の分野の企業のオフィスが集中するエリアで行われたため、デモ自体はかなり「お祭り」ムードであったにもかかわらず(歌あり踊りあり…)、事前に警察が策定していた「デモ対策」(封じ込め策)はかなり強硬なものでした(デモ参加者を一定のエリアに閉じ込め、途中で帰宅もさせない、食事にも水の調達にも行かせない、トイレにも行かせない…など)。 そういう状況の中で発生したのが、イアン・トムリンソンさんの死亡という事態でした。 続きを読む

No charges against policeman who pushed Ian Tomlinson to the ground at #G20

2010-07-22 19:18:25

#G20 charges considered by CPS over Ian Tomlinson death include manslaughter, assault and misconduct in public office

2010-07-22 00:49:09

One law for us and one law for them: simple as regarding the Ian Tomlinson decision not to prosecute. Makes you proud to be British eh folks

disgusted about Ian Tomlinson verdict - so it's legal for random passers by to be killed by the police just cos they got in the way? #fb

No charges for G20 riot officer filmed striking down newspaper seller because of postmortem conflicts Justice?#!?

2010-07-23 00:09:16

CPS says conflicts in medical evidence make it impossible to bring prosecution against cop who pushed Ian Tomlinson at #G20

Q: When is manslaughter not manslaughter? A:When you are a policeman. #iantomlinson

2010-07-22 20:33:11

@MarkReckons No. The CPS wil only prosecute if they think there is a realistic chance of a conviction. Here there was virtually no chance.

CPS:"Tomlinson was struck with a baton and pushed very strongly in the back ... no realistic prospect of a conviction"

"No realistic chance of prosecution" for cop who assaulted Ian Tomlinson. Non-shock of the day:

Roo @wickwox

So the police are done investigating the police and have decided that the police did nothing wrong: What a shocker #G20

Surprise surprise: No charges and "no case to answer" over ian Tomlinson. What a disgrace our unaccountable police are.

2010-07-22 19:46:14

No charges against police officers over Ian Tomlinson's death. None whatsoever.

Do you want to pummel people from behind with their hands in their pockets then lie about their death?

An unprovoked attack? Abuse of power? Brutality? Uh...yes. #FB

2010-07-22 23:43:59

Astonished at the decision in the Ian Tomlinson case. OK.. problem on cauise of death... but wasn't there enough evidence of assault?

2010-07-22 21:56:19
Ken MacLauchlan @kenmaclauchlan

How is the attacker of Ian Tomlinson not being charged with assault at the very, very least?

2010-07-22 21:31:19

Ian Tomlinson: officer escaped assault charge - has to be within 6 mths and...investigation took > 6 mnths. You couldn't make this stuff up.
