Mr Tomlinson was not rushing to clear out of the way and we obviously can't ask him why but if I did what that copper did I would be expecting to do some time.

Ian Tomlinson was a homeless alcoholic - he was fine after he fell - if you die after a fall like that it was going to happen anyway!

He was struck with a baton prior to the push. Granted a baton strike should not cause a death either but I reckon no baton strike and no push would probably mean no death.

Did anyone notice the officer darting in from the right, hitting Tomlinson, then darting away. That officer is not seen again through the rest of the right pan of the camera. The police are in riot gear with balaclavas, shields, and helmets obscuring identification This seems highly criminalistic to me. They should be identifiable for incidents like this one. That officer is probably guilty of manslaughter.
