This story is truly horrible.

If you've not heard it before I suggest you look at some of the articles and watch the video below about the seemingly unprovoked attack by PC Simon Harwood on Ian Tomlinson.

The Crown Prosecution Service has recently announced that the officer in question will NOT be charged under Misconduct in Public Office when their own guidelines state that "an assault by a police officer committed while on duty could also arguably be misconduct in public office."

I feel that this kind of statement leads me to trust the police a lot less since it shows their modus operandi is clearly NOT protection of the people.

I have been thinking recently about the way people react to daunting challenges.  Normally people would look at something incredibly difficult and shut down before even attempting to understand it.  I would like to encourage more people to try difficult things.
