Legal Assault

Just caught the ITV news and was surprised to see a UK copper taking swings at climate change protesters running past him. He made no attempt to arrest them, remaining stationary, just using his 'asp' to hit out at their legs as they ran past him.

Of course, that was just the edited ITV/ITN highlight, and I'm sure no British policeman would be caught doing anything like that outside of the television editing suite. Maybe he was part of an arrest team, marking the bad guys for arrest, or something like that. Maybe.
