The Summer Of Rage

It all started with a group of 7 people breaking into the Brighton bomb factory EDO and causing 1/4 million quid damage in an attempt to stop the ongoing slaughter of Palastinians, then a car full of fascists in Manchester was surrounded by an angry mob armed with hammers who proceded to do their own brand of DIY. Greedy banker Fred Goodwin's house and car windows were smashed, then on April Fool's Day anarchists ran riot through the City of London, smashing bank windows and chucking flaming stuff at the old bill to celebrate the meeting of the G20. Now 60% of the prisoners at HMP Ashwell in Rutland, Leicestershire deicided they'd had enough and layed siege to their accomodation, smashing shit up and burning things down for nearly 21 hours. Lastly, on Friday night, an armed rozzer sustained serious head injuries and is in a critical condition. It really is gearing up for the Summer of Rage we've been hearing about.

Unfortuantly, there has already been one casuality, and that was paper seller Ian Tomlinson, who died of a heart attack at the G20 demo after being attack by a cowardly, violent nutter of a police officer. Not only did the state kill this man, but they have tried everything they can to cover this story up. They have murdered a innocent man and then repeatedly lied about it. Unfortuantly for them, the Guardian newspaper is acting like a dog with a bone over this story. Over 1000 people have died in police custody since the 1970s. Not a single successful prosecution has ever happened. Is it too hard to believe that in just one of those cases the police directly or indirectly murdered someone?
