The Met's Rodney King Moment

Remember during the LA riots when we all learnt the name of Rodney King. Well during the G20 protests in London we will remember the name of Ian Tomlinson and these images which the Guardian has obtained will help us know why.

Ian Tomlinson wasn't even involved in the G20 protests. He was merely returning from his job selling newspapers when he got trapped within the Metropolitan Police force's kettling operation. But Tomlinson had done nothing to deserve this treatment. It appears that the only people in that video needing to let off steam in the kettle were the police.
