Hi everyone who's reading this!
On saturday afternoon after a football match i witnessed protesters outside the ground being "hasstled" by police.. I thought i'd go over, help out and remind them of the oath they took etc.. (as you do)
Now the most senior officer gave me his first name and spoke to me on a "level" we discussed issues etc (as you do).
Now another bobby was abit hot under the colar with myself, The senior memeber aknowledged i was educated in such fields where as the others believed me to be talking shit
Anyway cut a long story short, i end up arrested - Hand, Shoulders & back bruised from the force they put on me.
I made it clear as soon as i was arrested that on and off the record i wouldn't resist this arrested neither did i give them any reason to believe so.
I was thrown into a van face down, pulled out and took to a holding cell within the ground.
After the process, i was then transferd by a big wagon to a police station no more than 20miles away from my area.
All along the way - I made it clear i was going to protest this arrest in a peacefull mater.
On reaching the police station where i was to be processed, i made the desk sargent aware of my understanding of the situation and made him aware of what i was about. I told him that there were no complaints bought against myself, i didn't stand under his authority etc.
Within 20mins of being in the station - i was released without question, no charges were bought against me... I didnt even have to give my name or sign anything.
Now - they wanted me to sign everything and anything ie. getting my property back to which i replied i never gave you permission to steal these things. I quote various rights throught the procedure and basically i was told to get out the station.
Now, after being escorted from the building in the manner i enterd - I went around the front desk and demanded a senior officer to come to the station. He arrived within 10mins after i made it aware of what i was about.
Push comes to shove - The senior officer drove me home personally 20miles into a different county.
Now, i don't want to let this blow away in the wind. I've been seriously assulted by the officers who started this off.. I have buises all over my wrists shoulders and back.. even my knees are scraped up.
Baring in mind i said "on and off the record i would not resist any arrested" neither did i show any signs of it.
Is there anyone out there who could possibly point me in the right direction of taking this to the next level.. I understand the IPCC is an option but i would like to send letters in true TPUC style
I was arrested alongside another fan who was basically under the same thing as me... He was released 5hrs after me with charges bought against himself. After speaking to him, he said "you were making the most noise yet you were let out first"
You know why that was don't you.
