Senior London policeman backs Bahrain tyrants

This article is a disgrace: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/bahrain/9082771/Bahraini-police-clamp-down-on-revolt-anniversary-protests.html . A senior British policeman is offering an apologia for the torturing police of tyrannical Bahrain, a police-state without democracy or any proper/fair rule of law. He explicitly calls the protesters, in a tyrannised and terrified tortured society, 'vandals'.
His remarks shed a fascinating light on how close we are to having a police-state in Britain. Yates argues that the Bahraini police could learn BETTER how to crack down from Britain's (London's) police; he suggests that British police in a similar situation to the Bahraini police would behave in an even more extreme manner (i.e. would be more confrontational, aggressive).
We should take heed of this...
