THIS 85 YEAR OLD MAN WAS ASSAULTED BY LIVERPOOL POLICE YESTERDAY
In Norman's own words:
At 9.30am I walked into the entrance to Wirral Magistrates Court, intending to do no more than observe any case that interested me. I was wearing my World War II medals, in the hope they might gain me a little respect (SOME HOPE!) & a white 'Peace Poppy' in my hat. As is usual in these 'frisking' areas, I took the coins from my pocket & put them in the tray provided. As I did so the security woman said, "Who are you going to see? I said "I don't know" (quite true: we have been starved of information) "I will be going into any court that interests me". She said, "You can't do that. You've got to say who you have come to see". I tried to tell her she was wrong (I am a litle hard of hearing & often speak louder than intended). At this two Gestapo thugs detached from the others, accused me of shouting & (leaving my money still in the tray & my shopping trolley) dragged me round to the neaby police station, did not stop there for any formalities but straight through to the yard at the back At 9.35am, already handcuffed, I was thrust into a 2'6" square cage in the back of a van in a Police Station yard. My shopping trolley followed me, but the money never did, in spite of my repeated requests. The engine was running, a Gestapo Zombie in the driving seat, but it didn't move. Neither me nor the van moved for almost three hours, when six Gestapo turned up, the sergeant dragged me violently out of the van, threw me to the ground, told me I was being 'de-arrested' & could go. That is as much as I can tell you about Tuesday morning in Birkenhead. Information about events in court will have to come from elsewhere.
Now, all together - " There'll Always Be An England "
THIS IS A DISGUSTING WAY TO TREAT AN 85 YEAR OLD MAN, LET ALONE A MAN WHO DID HIS DUTY TO THIS COUNTRY BY FIGHTING THE NAZI'S!
WHAT HAS THIS COUNTRY COME TO? DECENT PEOPLE ARE SMEARED AND ABUSED, VILLIANS ARE HONOURED AND GLORIFIED.
GOD HELP THIS COUNTRY!
