Disabled Journalist Pulled From Wheelchair By Police During Tuition Fee Protests

December 10, 2010

Many thanks to blogger Robert Stewart for writing this post about DisAbled journalist Jody McIntyre, who was pulled out of his wheelchair by riot police during yesterday’s tuition fee protests in Central London.

I hadn’t heard anything about this incident until I read the post linked above. Maybe I missed it being covered on the TV news last night, but I don’t think it’s been covered enough. I thought the point of having police at protests was so that they could keep all protestors and members of the public safe. Unfortunately, in this incident, it seems they were the ones causing the trouble.

    This begs the question. What was a disabled, wheelchair bound person doing in such a volatile situation unless it was to cause provocation and make the police look bad, which he apperas to have done. Sounds like a put-up job.

    Jody McIntyre was at the protests to express his opinion on a very important issue, like most others who were there. Please read my 5 posts on the case from yesterday, Mr Morris.
