This video is completely incorrect. Nobody in the UK has ever been arrested or imprisoned for filming the Police. There is no law against it.

I think that she might have been threatened with arrest for obstructing the Police here.

If you have a legitimate complaint, it will. If a Police Officer has found to have acted improperly then it will be investigated. The system is completely transparent.

I don't really understand your reply and perhaps you would like to expand. People complain about the police for a number of reasons, perhaps because legitimate Police Powers, actions or procedures have not been properly explained at the time or because of the unwillingness of the complainant to change their mindset or ingrained ideas about how the Police 'are'. However, as I have outlined above - if a legitimate complaint is lodged and a Police Officer has acted improperly then it will be investigated. Some people make malicious complaints about Police Officers which are totally unfounded.

Some people seem to think that the Police work as a large, insular and conspiratorial body which is totally unaccountable. This is completely untrue and is an idea promoted by certain parts of the media and in the mindset of persons with an anti Police agenda.

People in this country should be thankful of having an honest, approachable transparent and accountable Police service, which is completely contrary to the 'service' which you would receive in some other European countries, let alone the rest of the world.

what i mean to say is ... surely an officer could only be found to have acted improperly as the result of a complaint having been investigated !

police complaints procedure may be transparent but its lip service ... unless something finds it way to a really high level or catches media

In Ireland it is difficult to get complaints of assault or seizing of cameras at demos taken seriously.

We are talking about the UK here. The general silence of everybody after my last question speaks volumes!

just checked and its not in my sent or outbox either ... dont know what happened there

in answer to your question yes its from my own personal experience ... i also do voluntary work which brings me into contact with lots of people who are facing issues with police performance ... there is a almost universal experience that complaining about police performance will only bring petulence ... im not by any means antipolice and have a lot of respect there ... but often its so hard to get action or answers and any notion of complaint will be counter productive
