Watch: Police brutally attack peaceful protesters and press in Bristol.
Police smashed riot shields and batons into just about anybody not wearing a police uniform.
This disproportionate use of violence from the police is completely unacceptable.
On Twitter, the clueless Priti Patel says ”I am disgusted by the disorder in Bristol and the violence being directed towards the police.”
No videos have emerged of a police officer being attacked, but Avon and Somerset Police did lie about officers suffering broken bones and punctured ribs when they made the false claims to the press.
These balaclava wearing police officers know they are almost impossible to identify and have been given 'full support' from the prime minister. Imagine the feeling of power they experience.
Is Priti Patel correct? Let's see who is really initiating the violence...
Police smack a riot shield into a girl's face, knocking her to the floor.
Police using riot shields as weapons
Police attack member of the press, who isn't even in the protest group
Police attack peaceful protestors with the hard edge of the riot shield.
Sly police officer lures journalist into unlawful arrest.
Gang of police attack camera man.
This is not public interest or public protection. This is a disgusting display of state violence against citizens of the crown and I will not stand for it.
