Award-winning BBC journalist Ben Brown has finally been able to break through the deafening silence being imposed on a growing menace to society: young men in wheelchairs menacingly rolling towards large groups of armed policemen. In drawing some desperately-needed attention to the veritable plague of young people with cerebral palsy in wheelchairs menacingly rolling towards
large groups of armed policemen members of the public, Ben brings enormous credit to the exclusive private school he attended and the fine education he received at Oxford University. It is indeed fortunate that–in this instance at least–well-armed police were on hand to repel Jody McIntyre‘s frenzied assault… but who knows how many innocents have had to flee in terror from this self-proclaimed “revolutionary” in the past?
Watch Brown tear strips from McIntyre in this revealing interview, broadcast on December 13, 2010:
McIntyre’s a known troublemaker who was obviously looking for trouble, found it, and now has the cheek to complain about it. Given his obvious bad temper and expressed commitment to the violent overthrow of the state, I think that Brown handled the radical well, and ought to be congratulated for refusing to capitulate to the routine anti-police rhetoric which dominates media reportage on such matters. Besides, what, exactly, is McIntyre complaining about? The police have already announced an official investigation into the incident, one which in the fullness of time will declare a verdict; further, despite having ample opportunity to do so, he has evidently failed to himself file a complaint. Obviously, the police take the issue far more seriously than does this supposed ‘victim’!
Once again, congratulations to the BBC for refusing to be bullied into submission by a violent radical, and to the police for managing to control what must surely have been one of the most violent and frightening mobs seen on the streets of London for many years.
