In Pictures: The Memorial And Death Of Ian Tomlinson

by | 1st, April 2010

ONE year ago Ian Tomlinson died. He was 47. He died on a London Street. He was pushed to the ground by a policeman – a British policeman at the G20 protest. Ian Tomlinson had his hands in his pockets when he was pushed. He had his back to the police. He was hit with a police baton on his way home from work. Today Ian Tomlinson’s widow Julia Tomlinson placed flowers at a memorial in London. Politicians, campaigners, lawyers and academics have signed a letter to the Director of Public Prosecutions which criticises the “intolerable” delays surrounding the investigation into the death at the G20 protests of Ian Tomlinson. One year on and nothing. Nothing. It looks like the police look after their own. It looks like the police aren’t all that keen on justice. Ask yourselves this: had someone struck a policeman from behind with a metal rod – and had that policeman died a short while later – what would have happend to the perpetrator?
