Treatment not deserved

The very day after Tod Bradbury’s letter was published in the November 6 edition, Animals are victims too, stating that war is not just a human catastrophe, I read in the morning paper that during an anti-capitalism march in Central London, masked yobs at the anonymous demo hurled bins, cones and glass at police.

The protesters also used laser pointers to try to dazzle officers and their horses with fireworks launched at them as well.

Moreover, a university student who told fellow demonstrators not to hurt the horses said she was punched and verbally abused, being told ‘police horses don’t feel’ and that ‘they’re trained for this stuff’.

However, the next day three suspected rioters walked free from court despite refusing to give their names.

So much for British justice.
