Where are the London cops?

They are in Scotland harassing political protesters!

The metropolitan police seems to see no irony, or feel no shame, for wasting their time harassing G8 protesters up in Scotland, instead of doing their job down in London. As I write a bunch of them is sitting outside Bristo Place 3, where the Forest Cafe and Indymedia Centre is housed, photographing everyone. A classic instance of harassment and intimidation that aims to chill our rights to speak up, assemble and protest, use independent media and participate in the anti-G8 political movement.
