I heard about this story the other week and thought it was quite amusing. Teenager being cheeky is put in a bin by a police officer to shut him up. However, I have just caught up on the story and it appears that the officer is suspended from duty and the boys father is looking to take the police to court. The boys father is saying the boy was doing nothing wrong and was simply waiting for a bus - that he was mistaken for being with another group of youths who were alledgedly throwing conkers and that his son was assaulted. Part of the incident was captured on mobile phone video Link to story with video The video is cut with interviews with the two boys envolved in the incident along with a BBC reporter. ..... I watched the film and noticed the boy saying how how he tried to stop himself being put in the bin so he held onto the railings and he was wrenched off and forced down into the bin ... he seemed to stress this. ..... so I checked it out ..... and its utter drivel ... he doesn't seem to grab the railings until after the police officer has walked off to get himself out .... and he doesn't seemed to be forced down into the bin at all - simple lowered under his own weight. The has is arm out towards the fence, but the police officer never stops or yanks at him, he simple keeps walking with him over his shoulder uninterupted. ...... so from observation, the boy is a liar - even with evidence that its rubbish .... his father seems to backing him up. Either the father is stupid - or he's trying to cash in on compensation ...... and we wonder why teenagers are so much trouble now a days.
