Welcome to the Orwellian State.

 

I wonder if I’m the only person who thinks this is a disgrace:

Student protester jailed for throwing fire extinguisher

versus:

G20: No charges over Ian Tomlinson demo death

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-10723274

Let’s put this in perspective:

The former is an act of stupidity by a little more than a CHILD which resulted in NO INJURY to anyone that has lead to a young person’s incarceration for 2 1/2 years and a future being irrevocably altered (probably not for the better).

The latter is an unnecessary vicious attack perpetrated by a man (P.C. Simon Harwood) with a documented history of violence which resulted in the death of an innocent bystander and carries the penalty of…. losing his job *if* the charges of gross misconduct actually stick (of which there is no guarantee).

Am I the only one  who struggles to see the “Justice” in this?

Not a very “equal” society one would have to say.
