Arrest, slander and fiasco: What really happened on Glasgow's Gallowgate in March 2013
"We did have an event of serious public disorder that day. It was caused by the police."
IMAGINE a peaceful community march of a few hundred people protesting against police harassment. Imagine police horses, a helicopter, and 200 officers surround the march, draw their batons and wade in. Imagine the police arrest 13 of the marchers for public order offences and confidently state that more arrests are on the way. Imagine the chief of police calls the marchers violent and intimidating and says that the courts will prove police actions were vindicated.
