Police involved in death of innocent bystander

The Guardian has revealed footage of police at the G20 protests bringing a man to the floor as he walked away from them with his hands in his pockets.

They then stood over him but offered no help as he sat dazed on the floor.

Minutes later Mr Tomlinson collapsed and then died.

People say we are lucky not to live in an oppressive regime. It's true that we live with relative freedom but is only relative and it is never inert. We are always either gaining or losing our corporate freedom to the Other.

See for yourself: here. It looks like whoever did the post-mortem and gave a verdict of "natural causes" may need investigating too.
