I’ve spent the day at the trial of Tommy Robinson vs. the Cambridgeshire Police.
It’s a case where Tommy is actually fighting back.
He’s suing the police, claiming they harassed and abused him — and more importantly, claiming they harassed Tommy’s young children, when they were all out together as a family for a carnival and football day.
Tommy captured the exchange on his cell phone camera. And it’s brutal.
The police harass Tommy, demanding that he leave a restaurant with his kids — or they’d arrest him. When Tommy reluctantly complied, the police then demanded that Tommy actually leave the city — and they frog-marched him to the train station.
We watched all this in court today.
I had seen this videotape before, and it’s clearly abusive conduct by the police.
But to watch it again, on this first day of the trial — with those same abusive police just feet away — was a revolting experience.
They gleefully tormented Tommy’s children; they delighted in the pain and screams of Tommy’s kids.
It was appalling.
And equally disgusting is that the Cambridgeshire Police, instead of disciplining these cops, is actually defending them.
The police lawyer, Adam Clemens, actually tried to paint Tommy as a bad father.
It was sick.
I can see why Tommy wanted me to come to Peterborough, UK, to cover this case. Because these humiliations and abuses directed at his family will not be reported by the mainstream press in the UK.
It’s important that the truth gets out.
I have been “live-tweeting” from the court all day, and I will continue to do so for the next two days.
And I have uploaded several videos about the trial to TommyTrial.com — you can see them all there.
P.S. I am crowdfunding my airfare and other expenses for this project. If you can help me, please do so at TommyTrial.com — thank you.
