Video footage shown to jurors showed Rodwan being aggressive and trying to drive off as the officers spoke to him.Wait, officers...? Plural?
Why then have we heard only from PC Outten? Why have we only seen footage of PC Outten?
PC Outten and PC Helen Brooks had pulled over Rodwan’s van for being uninsured, and the handyman, from Luton, claimed he got angry because he is “always being stopped” by police.Hmmm. Aren't we always told how dangerous single-crewing is, by the police union?
But he wasn't alone. So while he was getting his head hacked, what was his colleague doing? She may not have had Taser, but she had an ASP, surely?
Despite still being attacked, PC Outten managed to taser Rodwan before he stumbled and fell to the ground. PC Outten shouted at some bystanders to bring him his radio, which had fallen on the floor close to the van during the struggle.Why did he need to shout to members of the public? What was PC Helen Brook doing?
If she gave evidence, I can't find it in any newspaper report...
