Disabled victim of Police attack takes BBC News presenter to task

By Dark Politricks

During last weeks student protests against the rise in university fees a disabled man by the name of Jody Mcintyre, who suffers from cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair, was caught on video being attacked by the police.

Not only did the police hit him across the shoulder with a baton they twice removed him from his wheelchair and dragged him across the road and then dumped him on the floor. The second attack was caught on camera and has caused uproar amongst those who see the “riots” that the media has concentrated so much on as a direct consequence of the police’s provocative actions.

Not a protest in London goes by lately without some kind of police brutality being caught on camera. Who can forget the death of Ian Tomlinson at last years G20 or the police slapping and batoning a woman at a memorial protest in honour of his death the next day which was also filmed by a bystander. Don’t the police realise that in this day and age of cheap recording equipment the protesters biggest weapon is their mobile phone?

At the latest protest we have the sad case of Alfie Meadows who almost died and had to undergo intensive brain surgery after he was hit on the head by another baton wielding thug in a uniform after he tried to leave a kettling area that had been set-up by the police.

And now we have the disgraceful case of cops attacking the disabled. Have they no shame? How do they expect people to react when they are kettled, battered and then witnesses to assaults on women and the disabled. Do they expect them just to stand there like good little boys waiting in line for their own punishment or do they think that some of them might get a little bit angry by being treated so badly.

Is it any wonder that a large number of people believe that the police intentionality carry out these types of attacks on protesters in an attempt to provoke a response which they can then use to justify even more force.

I had the immense joy of watching the victim of the most recent attack, Jody Mcintyre, being interviewed on the BBC news channel earlier tonight. The interviewer was trying his best to justify the polices actions but was taken to task by Jody in the most brilliant way and it made the BBC look shameful for their attempt to legitimise his assault.

Interviewer: There was a suggestion that you were rolling towards the police in your wheelchair

Jody: I think to justify a police officer pulling a disabled person out of a wheel chair and dragging them across a concrete road is quite ridiculous and I’m surprised that you tried to do so.

Yes it is ridiculous and the BBC should be ashamed of their attempts to justify this appalling but totally expected police behaviour. No longer can we call these incidents isolated or the result of a few bad apples as Jody says himself in the interview: this is the polices role at demonstrations to provoke and incite violence. It seems that they are doing their job very well.

    The poor man dosen’t have ceberal palsy, he is just very drunk.

    The simple fact is that the policing institution feel they have the RIGHT to control and therefore they have the mind set to come down hard on anyone who they feel is challenging their authority. This is a situation that is only going to get worse especially in the UK, country which is sliding towards a police almost as fast as the USA.

    This is exactly why the USA wrote the 2nd amendment the right to keep and bear arms. The USA grew tired of the crown opressing them.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
