On a dark and cold winter evening protesters campaigning for justice for the two men killed in Thames Valley Police’s custody held a peaceful vigil outside Slough police station in a town blighted for many years by police brutality, false and malicious arrests and police cover-ups.

  1. I believe that our police force is totally out of control, and it should be completely dismantled. In a democratic society as ours, we should be able to elect a government who would be capable of doing just that.

    If we are keeping on complaining, signing little petitions etc, we are going nowhere.
    for thousands of years this kind of staff have been happening, someone is learning lessons, and people keep on getting murdered. For slow learners, this is it.

    Let’s instead put an end to injustice once and for all. Let’s make all political party leaders aware of the present situation, and let’s elect who ever would be capable of giving us justice.
