    Default PSNI attack youths in Omagh.

    In a week that saw the PSNI stand by and watch, as Loyalists attacked Nationalist bars, homes, churches etc we now see days later they use aggression and force of a couple of kids singing and celebrating a football match.
    Why couldn't they act like this outside City Hall, or during the violent scenes across the North?
    The kids in the video are not being violent, not blocking the road and not attacking the police.
    Batons are drawn in approx 10 seconds.
    Guy arrested has a broken arm.

    They have to take the hole fleg thing out on some one and it can't be the good ole law abiding unionist to be sure.

    BTW, I've no idea if these lads are Catholic or Protestant, but just want to highlight the difference in attitudes within the PSNI.
    Had that been a flag protest, they'd have watched from a distance and diverted traffic.

    Disgusting display of one sided police action, we were sold the pup that PSNI were to undo everything the RUC diid wrong.

    Or sent them a Penalty Charge Notice.

    Breaking an arm for singing in the street?
    And they say IRA punishment squads are extreme.

    Why what do you think should have happened to them?

    Hopefully when International bodies come in to investigate the Finucane murder, I hope they look at this as well.
