Frankie Boyle is right on Ian Tomlinson case: “There was absolutely no evidence, apart from that film of him (Harwood) doing it”
Freddy Patel, the pathologist who conducted two post mortem examinations on Ian Tomlinson, the newspaper seller and father of nine who was killed in 2009 at the G20 protests in London after being pushed to the ground by a police officer, faces being struck off after a tribunal panel of medical professionals noticed a number of key errors in his work and found him to be ‘dishonest’.
The news broke yesterday that PC Simon Harwood, the officer who pushed Ian Tomlinson to the ground at the G20 in 2009-and who later died as a result from his injuries – had been cleared of charges of manslaughter at Southwalk crown court in London.
Of course, I never expected to receive any kind of justice or openness from an investigation which consisted of the Metropolitan Police, whom I consider to be one of the most corrupt and inept institutions in the country, investigating themselves, but their report on my case was even poorer than I could have imagined.
