Police Violence Caught on Film
dublin | summit mobilisations | news report Wednesday May 05, 2004 23:29 by Chekov chekov at indymedia dot ie
2 instances of violent assaults by police
Two videos showing examples of police violence unleashed on protestors on the Navan Road on May day.
The first shows Officer 1221 assaulting a protestor without any apparent reason to do so. He first punches the protestor in the head and then batons him across the back of the thights (seemed very popular with the cops on the day), he finally lashes out at a second protestor who has his back turned and is not doing anything threatening.
The second shows the incident where the water cannon blasted cameramen on the 8-foot high wall to the side of the protest. One cameraman was knocked off the wall by the force of the blast. Both myself and the sky news cameraman beside me just about hung on.
Both of these incidents are examples of acts of violence that were completely unwarranted. If anybody is interested in high-resolution copies of the footage, please contact me at the email address above.
