Moving towards the truth at last

It’s amazing how quickly the cause of Ian Tomlinson’s death at the G20 ptotests has gone from a chance heart attack without apparent cause to abdominal bleeding after contact with the police and how circuitous the path towards the unfolding truth has become:

First there was a heart attack with no previous contact with the police…

Then photos of Mr Tomlinson near policemen…

Then the film showing him being hit and then pushed over by a policeman…

What started off as police denial of any involvement whatsoever has now escalated to the possibility of the officer in question being charged with manslaughter and questions regarding the integrity and/or efficiency of the police and the principle conduit of accountability between ourselves and the police – the IPCC – clamouring to be asked.

It’s a very sad day indeed…
