police…batons…heads March 26, 2011

From the UK Parliament’s Joint Committee on Human Rights Report on Facilitating Peaceful Protest, the following statement:

We were, however, surprised to find that no specific guidance setting out circumstances in which the use of the baton against the head might be justifiable and recommend that such detailed guidance about the use of batons be drawn up, and that in the meantime training reflects this concern.

That’s what I want to see – detailed guidance about when the police can hit people in the head with their batons.
