  1. I suppose it makes a change from a police officer assaulting a woman which we are all getting used to reading in the press.

  2. Suspicion?????.
    It’s either he did or didn’t . it’s like fatally wounded, no no no. Fatally = dead
    Wounded = walked away with injury. We ain’t America

    • Well , until the incident has beenminvestigated and it’s been determined that an offence has been committed, there can only be suspicion or similar. Just a form of words in part of a process.

  3. Typical feral mentality bought on by left leaning liberal ideologies.

    Parents are no longer allowed to discipline children, teachers are no longer allowed to discipline pupils, the move away from prison sentencing with the aim of keeping offenders in communities and the complete removal of parental responsibility, no wonder people think they can do whatever they want.

    I hope the police officer is ok and teenage gangster wannabe scum meets one of the dwindling number of judge’s who believe in sending criminals to prison because that’s where scum belongs.

  4. When I read some of the “right-leaning illiberal” comments on IoTN, I’m so glad that I’m a “left-leaning liberal”.

    • I know,MM Rees.Like you,I think this poor youth has been picked on by the police and a victim of those,who want him,and others,dealt with custodial sentences.
      If he had the benefits and privileges that most of us have,he would never have resorted to this.I think,and I am sure you agree,this man is owed an apology by the police and emergency services.
