More Police dramas?!

We’ve been getting word that there were more dramas with Police in Wellington last night at the Queer Our Schools march.

Word is going around that one of the organisers was “assaulted” by police after being grabbed, while walking, from inside a moving police car.

One of the participants says she was then injured after the police car rolled over her foot. She was left with “just bruises” after the incident.

The Queer Our Schools march was organised by political action group Queer Avengers, in a bid to make school easier for “transgendered, queer and gender-variant” students.

We’ll update this story as soon as solid information comes to hand.

IMPORTANT NOTE: At present this story is based on information from unconfirmed sources, hence it being filed under ‘scandal’. We have posted it as ‘rumour’ because of the weight of the situation, but hope to verify the facts and run a fuller story as soon as possible.

    I saw 2 instances of the police being unnecesarily violent at this march. The grabbing incident mentioned in the article and also police cars swerving to try to direct the way people were walking, so pretty much police trying to hit people with their cars.
    I have no videos or photos but I did see it happen.

    A friend of mine was ripped off a toilet mid shit by a cop in the station and beaten while he rolled round in his own shit.

    Not that it matters, but the reason he was arrested in the first place was for urinating in public on the night of his prom.

    My friend said despite looking, he could not find a public toilet anywhere. After arrest he was in a cell and needed to take a dump, a cop burst in the cell door and ripped him off the system and repeatedly kicked him, his pants were around his ankles and my friend couldn’t get up.

    My friend appeared in court the next day with shit allover his tuxedo.

    A very important note indeed: fake.

    So, wait up… this protester, the one who got her foot rolled over by a police car and only walked* away with “just bruises” – Can she hook me up with feet or steel too? :D
