Police Hunt 14 Student Fee Protesters Who Proved Kettling Fails: Photos

by | 12th, December 2010

POLICE have issued the photos of 14 demonstrators they want to question and kettle in a small room back at the station. This what happens after protests that turn ugly: the police use technology and the media to get their message across. They do not listen. They cannot listen. Says Detective Chief Superintendent Matthew Horn:

“The vast majority of the people we are seeking are suspected of committing serious offences of violent disorder and criminal damage.”

Criminal damage is a “serious offence”. Violent disorder is a “serious offence”. Kettling – curtailing someone’s freedom and placing them in temporary prison – is merely operational.

Jody McIntyre says police pulled him from his wheelchair twice.

Meanwhile, there is little news on Alfie Meadows, a philosophy student at Middlesex University. He was hit by an object in last Thursday’s London demo. The Morning Star delivers his news beneath the headline:

Student protests – “Someone is going to get killed”

Depending on which side you are on, that is either a threat or a warning…
