BBC article on casual police violence

An article on the BBC website ( talks about a recent incident where a woman, after being thrown out of a nightclub, was helddown by four cops and then punched repeatedly by one of them. It has footage of the action captured loyally by a carpark CCTV camera.

The South Yorkshire police force says it is happy with the way the incident was handled (presumably that means its normal to deal with people who won't come easy (--apparently the woman's struggling was also exacerbated by an epileptic fit--) by punching them "with all my strength" (words of the responsible police officer)....nice to see all that training being put to some good use.
