The G20 result: Ian Tomlinson caseJuly 23, 2010
I don’t know too much about this case other than the fact that the CPS have decided not to prosecute the officer involved in pushing Ian Tomlinson. The issue here seems to be that there was not the prospect of a conviction for manslaughter because expert opinion was mixed as to whether the push caused the death or not. The PSD team will be quaking in their heels; just who is going to deal with this inside the Met? I guess the officer will be subject to discipline; the question is; will this result in the loss of his job? There must be a reason, a build up as to why he pushed Tomlinson; there must be.
