PC Simon Harwood is a thuggish police officer who assaulted Ian Tomlinson, thereby causing Tomlinson’s death. He was acquitted of manslaughter by a majority jury verdict in a shameful miscarriage of justice.
Furthermore Harwood perjured himself when he dishonestly testified that Tomlinson had encroached upon a police line and committed a breach of the peace. Harwood also perjured himself at his trial when he testified falsely that Tomlinson had been obstructive.
Having said all this, it must be added that other police officers contributed significantly to Tomlinson’s death by preventing third-year medical student Lucy Apps from giving him first aid. The police who did that had no lawful grounds to do so. The police officer who did that denied Tomlinson timely first aid was therefore also guilty of manslaughter.
If any of the police officers described in this article feel aggrieved, let them sue me.
