In a statement, Scotland Yard said: 'We want to remind anyone who is taking part in a demonstration in a public place or at a public meeting, not to wear a uniform which is associated with a political purpose, as to do so may be committing an offence under Section 1 of the Public Order Act, 1936.'Why didn't you last time it happened, then?
Going up to police officers and shouting they are ‘terrorists’ as they stand by, is a privilege you will not find in any other country but the UK. pic.twitter.com/9MfYJo0e9T— Lukas (@LukasDegutis) August 2, 2020
This is, of course, yet another instance of a certain 'community' feeling that laws shouldn't apply to them:
On Twitter, BLM UK added: '4Front do vital work in the community advocating for young people being harassed by police daily. This is one day before a commemorative protest for Mark Duggan which 4Front co-organised.'
Speaking outside Colindale Police Station, Temi Mwale of the 4Front Project said: 'Today started calmly, it started peacefully with us as community workers asking why a 14-year-old was being arrested?'
On suspicion of carrying 13 bags of drugs.
'What has he done so we can inform his mum?'
The police will do that, as he's a minor.
'I can’t go into too much detail, but this is several times this month this same young person has been harassed and been arrested.'
With no doubt good reason. As 'community workers', aren't you looking to get drugs off the streets?
Or do you need people to be high as kites to believe you're anything but professional agitators looking for a fight with the police?
