Protesters gathered outside a Leicester police station yesterday after seven members of a family were arrested. The group of up to 30 men stood outside Leicester's Spinney Hill Park station for about two hours until they dispersed at 5pm.Oh? This sort of thing doesn't happen here, does it?
Nayeem Gul, who was leading the group, said seven members of his family, including his 13-year-old son and a number of his nephews, had been arrested when officers visited his home earlier in the day.Ah. And were they there to show their displeasure at the shame their family member had brought to the community, perchance?
A further six people were arrested when what police described as "an incident of disorder" occurred.Hmmm, maybe not then.
Mr Gul, who was invited into the East Park Road station to speak with officers, criticised police's handling of the arrests. He said: "The way the police came into my home was unacceptable and we came here to show the strength of feeling."Did you? Did you really?
