Batons at the ready??
Once again a victim of police brutality ends up in court charged with violence. Harvie Brown was charged as the ring leader of violence against the police at last years G20 protest. However it took the jury a mere 30 minutes to find him not guilty after seeing film footage of the police brutality against protesters. A glowing example of the need for protesters to film everything they see at such an event. Film evidence in court can be very powerful and can in some cases contradict the police evidence, as it did in this case. A mass protest with everybody armed with their video phones merrily taking film of everything in sight would be a clear indication that we are aware of what we are up against and are collecting the evidence. They may manage to confiscate some, but some will survive and “could be used as evidence in a court of law.”
