Merseyside Police Filmed Punching Stabbed Darren Grace In Head: Video

DARREN Grace has been stabbed in the head. He has made his way to Stanley Park, Liverpool. Merseyside Police come to his aid. They assist him by repeatedly punching him the head and body.

Police says: “CCTV images can never show the whole story.”

They say enough. The man is down. The man is bleeding. The police – three of them – beat him up. What did we miss? Can the police tell us how the camera lies – then explain why we need so much CCTV to crack crime and speed cameras to criminalise motorists? The police violence was captured by the camera operated by the City Council’s Citywatch.

The cameras offer, “improved public reassurance and a public deterrent to offenders.”

The tape is shown to The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). The IPCC says it is happy for the Merseyside Police to conduct its own investigation. Yeah, really.

Mr Grace has lodged no formal complaint with Merseyside Police. He will not take part in the investigation because he says he has no confidence in the force.
