If the ‘kill the bill’ protests in Bristol have taught us anything, elected officials should not interfere with our independent judicial system. However, following the protests, it seems that some politicians are getting involved. For example, Bristol mayor Marvin Rees took part in a decision to disperse the demonstration from College Green forcefully. This was followed by riot police trampling on candles and flowers.
62 people reported injuries during protests in bristol
The Bristol protests were accompanied by violent clashes between police officers and protesters. The demonstrations injured at least 62 people, including 20 police officers. Police vehicles and a police station were vandalized. Police have also arrested seven people, but the number of arrests is expected to increase as closed-circuit television footage is analyzed. The British interior minister has condemned the violence, branding it unacceptable.
Police have been criticized heavily over the handling of the protests. The Avon and Somerset Police Commissioner said the police were “reckless” in handling the demonstrations. The MPs and peers said the police actions at the lockdown protests provided an insight into the impact of new police powers. The inquiry heard evidence from several witnesses, including journalist Hannah Vickers of the Cable news website. She interviewed protesters who had reported injuries.
The protests were accompanied by violent clashes, with at least two police officers hospitalized. The Avon and Somerset Police were later forced to retract their initial injury figures. In all, 62 people were injured during the protests in Bristol. Most were wounded by police blading, although batons and dogs reportedly struck seven people. Twenty-two people suffered head injuries. Some protesters reported that police trampled them on the ground and hit them with rods.
The PCSC bill would further empower police officers to prevent protests. The proposed legislation would also increase the sentences of police officers who cause harm to protesters. The police were forced to disperse protesters in the city by putting them in riot gear. Despite this, a sit-in protest was staged on Haymarket in the city center, next to a riot guard at Bridewell police station.
While the protests in Bristol began peacefully, they turned violent as night fell. Some protesters threw stones and set cars on fire. Others vandalized police vehicles and wrote graffiti on the roads. At least two protesters defecated at the feet of police officers.
The police have been accused of using excessive force against protesters, and campaigners have raised serious concerns about the police injuries. However, police say they were forced to use “reasonable force” after the protests turned violent. While police are not blamed for the injuries, the number of people injured is still relatively high. Some protesters have been bitten by police dogs, while others were hit with police batons and shields.
After the protests, police released a false press release, claiming three officers had been seriously injured. The Avon and Somerset Police later withdrew this claim. As a result, Avon and Somerset Police have been accused of lying to journalists, politicians, and the public.
Police lie about injuries.
Police attacked protesters on Sunday night during the “Kill the Bill” demonstration, causing more than 20 officers to be injured. Police vehicles were set alight, and windows were smashed. The protest was against plans by the government to give police more powers to deal with protesters. Hundreds of people gathered on the streets of Bristol to demonstrate against the new law. The mood quickly turned violent, and the police and riot police were forced to use excessive force against protesters.
The police said the officer had broken an arm and punctured a lung, which was untrue because he had been repeatedly stamped on. The activists demanded the officer’s injury details, and the Avon and Somerset police retracted their false claims.
Police claim they were not at fault but lay about it anyway. This is because police do not have any accountability for using excessive force. A court hearing will make it possible to see what went wrong. In the Bristol case, several officers were injured, but the victims were not injured.
The police report their injuries to the police, but they often don’t tell anyone the specific type of injury. This could mean that the officer was hit by a bat, a shield, a car door, or a person. If the police were lying about the nature of their injuries, they might be hiding the truth.
The police also lied about the number of people injured during the protest. Five people were sentenced to prison in the first round of court proceedings. Four were given three-and-a-half-year sentences for riot, while the fifth was given a five-month sentence for outraging public decency.
In the case of the officers involved in the shooting, two highly respected police officers were killed, and a third officer was seriously injured. The suspect shot over 80 rounds at the police responding to a domestic call. The inspector general’s office and the state police confirm that the 911 call was a deliberate attempt to lure law enforcement.
Riots also accompanied the ‘Kill the Bill’ protests in Bristol. The footage shows protesters battling police, and mounted officers were also seen attempting to disperse the large crowd outside the Police Station at Bridewell. However, the media are blaming protestors for the violence.
While the Kill the Bill demonstration is national, protesters in Bristol continued the protest outside Parliament. After the peaceful demonstrations, many protestors got violent outside Parliament. One of the protestors threw a police officer’s hat across the crowd. Another protestor then picked up the cap, and six police officers tackled him to the ground.
Several police officers lied to the public about the number of protesters injured. One of them, Ryan Roberts, convicted of attempted arson with intent to endanger life, told the inquiry officer that he got “carried away” while fighting for his freedom of speech.
Campaigners demand the release of those imprisoned.
The ‘Kill the Bill’ protests took place on March 21 and resulted in 14 arrests. The protesters threw missiles at police, set a police van on fire, and attacked the police station. The police are still investigating the incident. The protesters have also demanded that those imprisoned under the Bill be released.
The controversial Bill criminalized Gypsy, Traveller, and Roma communities in the UK. At least 50 people have been convicted of rioting, the worst public order offense in English law. They were arrested after a riot outside a police station in Bristol. The riot caused caved-in windows and damaged police cars. The scream came as a reaction to the killing of Sarah Everard by a police officer.
The protesters also trashed Bridewell police station. Graffiti was sprayed on walls, and 12 police vans were damaged. Many protesters were against the Police, Crime, Sentencing, and Courts Bill. The Bill will give police new powers to repress demonstrators. The protests in Bristol were organized by the Sisters Uncut campaign, which has a national reach. They were accompanied by members of the Bristol Anarchist Federation and regional anarchist organizations.
Campaigners also call for releasing those imprisoned under the ‘Kill the Bill’ Bill in Bristol. A large group of people will be demonstrating in Bristol on Saturday, August 6, at 2 pm outside St Peter’s Church in Castle Park.
On the day of the protests, more than 1,000 protesters marched through the city center and near the police station in Bridewell. They held placards and played reggae music, chanting ‘Kill the Bill’ and ‘peaceful protest.’
The new Bill, the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, is a draconian law proposed by the Westminster government. It aims to increase the penalties for serious crimes, end prisoners’ early release, and ban unauthorized encampments. It also gives police more power to suppress demonstrations and restrict peaceful protests.
The charges against the protesters have been controversial, and it is believed that there was a lack of evidence that led to their arrests. As a result, many protesters have been sentenced to lengthy prison sentences. The most recent prisoner, Charly Pitman, has been convicted of riot and sentenced to three years in prison. He was in front of the protesters and struck police shields and helmets. Several other defendants have faced criminal proceedings and are waiting for their trials later this year.
Police have been accused of excessive force during the protests. However, Avon and Somerset Constabulary have reacted to the accusations and defended the police. Some people arrested on Saturday and Sunday have been released on bail.
The Bill’s final stages have prompted protests. It has passed through Parliament, and the Lords have suggested amendments. This legislation will be debated and voted upon later this year.
