Video shows London police shoving man from behind before he died




Update:The police officer who shoved the man before he died has been suspended.



London police had their hands full last week with hundreds of people demonstrating in the streets, sometimes violently, against the G20 summit of world leaders.

But they singled out one man who had nothing to do with the protests – a newspaper carrier who walking home with his hands in his pockets – when they shoved him from behind for no apparent reason, sending him sprawling face first into the pavement.

Ian Tomlinson appeared shocked and surprised but otherwise not critically injured, according to a recently surfaced video posted on the BBC website.

However, he died of a heart attack moments later.

Before the video surfaced, police were saying that Tomlinson “suffered a sudden heart attack while on his way home from work.”

But then a New York fund manager who had recorded the footage came forward with the video because Tomlinson’s family “were not getting any answers”.

The G20 stands for the Group of Twenty Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors described by Wikipedia as:

A group of finance ministers and central bank governors from 20 economies: 19 of the world’s largest national economies, plus the European Union (EU). It also met twice at heads-of-government level, in November 2008 and again in April 2009. Collectively, the G-20 economies comprise 85% of global gross national product, 80% of world trade (including EU intra-trade) and two-thirds of the world population.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
