Yes and before bodycams if a police officer was assaulted..they could do the same back..since bodycams the scum can kick punch spit and bite officers..maybe get few hours community service which they may half heartedly turn up to stand around smoking and fine they wont pay..and hero worshipped by scum mates..police do anything but minimal force loses their job..

Young people (invariably) on the way back from the pubs to the council estate.
I know they are businesses, but why were they continued to be sold drinks ? I hope this will be followed up.
It’s mainly down to lack of discipline in their upbringing, so they really need it now from the courts..some hope!
