New post-mortem on Ian Tomlinson says haemmorrhage not heart attack.

'Natural causes'? 'No contact with police?' That was how the police deliberately briefed the media in the aftermath.

UPDATE: Officer who struck Tomlinson interviewed under caution on suspicion of manslaughter

Sadly this comes as little surprise to me. What needs to happen now, in addition to the consideration of a possible manslaughter charge against the officer(s) involved, is a full investigation into why the first postmortem was so drastically wrong. According to today's (Friday's) coroners' press release, Dr. Patel "found a substantial amount of blood in the abdominal cavity," yet chose to ignore this when coming to his conclusions. Furthermore, this finding was not made public at the time, and if it wasn't for the combined efforts of citizen journalism and the work of The Guardian probably would never have come to light at all. The IPCC investigation must look into who knew what and whether there was a concerted attempt to suppress information, and should be prepared to bring charges not only of manslaughter but also of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

I am agree with Jim and his message is loud and clear. I am glad to see lots of people is trying their part so as to deliver justice. So, keep it up and you will make a difference. It is an uphill task due to the fact that the world is getting more and more corrupted. Keep it your good work,

At some level, each of us is aware of our own personal security. While we recognize police in our community as a responder to incidents, police alone cannot effectively prevent property crime. This is a community problem which requires a collaborative effort from residents committed to exacting a positive change.Your own instincts can greatly assist you to make decisions which best ensure your safety.
