    I always think it's better to be safe than sorry. Say if someone is pissed up fighting and you think they are about to swing for you then I'm happy to see their knees taken out with a cosh or 5 police officers all dive on him. It may be a tad excessive but tough shit. Don't act like a tit.

    I would have thought at the very least the copper would be retrained or moved to an office job. I cant believe for one minute the police are trained to run 40 yds and smash their truncheon into someone's head, I thought they went for the arms or legs.
    Personally he should be charged with GBH

    That's the difficult thing. The old bill can say the old man was causing aggro prior to this and his son was in on it too

    I feel sorry for all the victims that are never filmed, that's some serious PTSD.

    I couldn't imagine taking my lad to a game, have a fun time. Footy, program, pint, a dodgy burger and then for him to get walloped, it would haunt me for the rest of my life.

    It would need to be a LOT of aggro. He'd have to have been running around stabbing people for that to be considered a justifiable response!

    Spot on , in the clip there doesnt seem to be enough people around for a fight , looks like a small group of about 4 crossing the road when a man comes running along and smashes a kid in the head with a lump of wood.

    It's difficult to tell, but it looks like the dad was scuffling with someone who then runs off when Billy Big Bollocks steams in with his truncheon. Weirdly, he goes straight for the lad, not the two men who are "fighting".
