Such complaints do not usually get to court. Someone in the CPS must
have felt there was a fair chance of conviction, and thus that the
police officer's actions were not obviously justified.
The plods were deliberately delaying dealing with my arrest so that my
complaint against fuller would fall outside the 6-month limitation
for cases of assault in the magistrates court, so I laid an
information before the courts, had to appear before the district
judge at the time who listened to what I said, remarked that there
had been no cause for the plods to arrive mob handed (8 of them
to arrest a non-violent pacifist ?????) and it was the judge himself
who initated the prosecution. As soon as that was underway,
the plods dropped the matter against me as there was then no
point in them delaying it further.
Remember, this was the year, 2005, when reay felt so self-important
that he was having a number of people arrested merely for standing
up against his ridiculous abuse in this NG.

Even though the jury, possibly rightly, gave him the benefit of the doubt.
Either someone thought there was a realistic prospect of conviction, or
was sending Fuller or his line management a fairly strong message.
There wsa no jury, but the video shows me being pinned down by three
of them and my face is clean. Fuller steps over me with his back to the
camera, and when he stands back, there is the bruise. They went through
the video frame by frame and because no frame actually showed his boot
on my face, he was acquitted.
Wankers all - wiltshire plods and beaks.
Anyway, this was all 12 years ago. Is this NG so bereft of relevant
material that someone unknown felt the need to rake over these coals?
Was it to discredit reay whose emotional sensitivity to justified
public criticism set the whole thing inmotion?
Perhaps it is a sign that both this NG and also UKRAM are well past
their sell-by dates?
