Welcome to the Orwellian State.

I wonder if I’m the only person who thinks this is a disgrace:

Student protester jailed for throwing fire extinguisher

versus:

G20: No charges over Ian Tomlinson demo death

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-10723274

Let’s put this in perspective:

The former is an act of stupidity by a little more than a CHILD which resulted in NO INJURY to anyone that has lead to a young person’s incarceration for 2 1/2 years and a future being irrevocably altered (probably not for the better).

The latter is an unnecessary vicious attack perpetrated by a man (P.C. Simon Harwood) with a documented history of violence which resulted in the death of an innocent bystander and carries the penalty of…. losing his job if the charges of gross misconduct actually stick (of which there is no guarantee).

Am I the only one  who struggles to see the “Justice” in this?

Not a very “equal” society one would have to say.
