    Complete police brutality. The guy at the back had stopped and wasn`t provoking them at all, so of course the cops beat the crap out of him.

    Not sure what the context is but the job of the Police is to control. This seemed excessive. They didnt seem provoked.

    I might be all for riot police beating up rioters, simply because that is the sort of thing you have to expect if you want to riot.

    ... but there was no riot there. How did those cops know that those people on bikes were rioters?

    Also seems like a waste of effort. If there is a riot going on elsewhere you`d think that ALL the riot police would also be there trying to arrest people and protecting buildings. Here you have a dozen cops going after 4 people and only managing to beat up 2.

    If you`re far from the riot and you assume that those people did participate in the riot, then why beat them up at all? You can just arrest them given how many cops there are.

    The video doesn`t give enough information to tell if the cops are really to blame, but I`d venture a guess that they are.

    ... but even if the cops are to blame, it`s a riot. Normal people aren`t gonna want to be outside anyway.

    Those kids may well have been looters, but we don`t know. What we do know is that at least one of them stopped to address the police before having the shiit beat out of him. Guess its not just the London Met that are ruthless cnuts.

    seems like the kind of policing i would expect, no overkill there. the london police got a lot of stick for not getting stuck in (as they have in the past) but that was started by a dodgy shooting (by the police). in manchester they are kicking off for other reasons...

    @incubus inc cant tell if trolling or...

    Nice form tackle on the bicycle. Squared his shoulders, kept his head up, and used his momentum to pop back up and continue chasing the other one.

    Perhaps the rioters who have been caught, some 500 isn`t it?, should be released after they are burned out of house & home.

    Looking at the video I think the cops were being guided by a CCTV operator who was tracking the people on bikes (probably stolen). It looks like the cops didn`t have line of sight with the riders when the started to sprint.

    @ATL1EN

    If you don`t wanna get in trouble with the cops, don`t give `em any reason to suspect you. If they didn`t want to trouble the cops, those guys wouldn`t have taken off sprinting. They certainly deserved something--and they sure as Hell knew it.

    Overboard? Well, maybe, but maybe not so much when all parties in England are calling for the use of rubber bullets, water cannon, and tear gas.

    There is no such thing as overkill in this sense. All the rioters, whether currently rioting or fleeing, deserve to be dealt with in this matter. drating pricks, go get em riot control.

    In England, we`re kind of in a crisis with these riots. Everone`s been warned that the police have been instructed to carry out `the full force of the law`. There`s been talk of curfews. And every politician, leader, police chief, you name it has told the public not to go out. They`re asking for it.

    People are actually starting to die in the riots now. Three guys in birminham tried to defend their place of worship and were ran over by a rioter killing all three. Overkill? This is underkill. These riots are being done by scutters who are bored. Most people probably don;t even know why they started. And the people who do know, shouldn`t even give a poo. So one man got shot and he might of been innocent? Who cares.

    i agree, normal people wouldnt be out in a riot.

    There wasn`t a riot going on in this area, as can clearly be seen by this video. There was rioting elsewhere, but not there.

    I`ve been working until 22:30 every evening this week, in a city centre. So I`ve been walking home every night at that time. Through a city centre.

    id be sitting in my house with my gun ready for some fool to come in. but these people didnt look to deserve anythign they got. maybe they were trying to get away from the riot. maybe they made a threat the the cops. who knows... still looks overboard to me.

    Looks that way to me too, from the video. I`m not fond of watching police in my country kicking and beating people who have already been knocked down and I`d want a lot of evidence to convince me that it isn`t overkill. The fact that they`re on bikes and there`s a riot somewhere in the same city isn`t anywhere near enough.

    i imagine patrols of these riot guys around the streets during the early stages of the zombie apocalypse

    Anyway, I theorize that there is a lot more to it than police officers beating bikers for biking during a raid.

    They start running towards the streetcornor before they even see the guys, i think they were told to proceed by radio

    For all we know, the group on bikes might aswell have shot a riot officer a few blocks down
