Video from police cell released
A videotape that police opposed being seen by the general public has been released, with the judge saying people should have the right to make up their own minds about what they view. The three-hour silent video shows a prisoner's seven hour stint in a police cell where he was allegedly assaulted by police officers. In October 2006, Rawiri Falwasser had been arrested for unlawfully taking a vehicle. Police say he posed a danger to them and they wanted to assist him medically. But when Falwasser was imprisoned, video footage from the cell shows an officer pepper spraying the 20-year-old through the sliding door of the cell. Falwasser is seen holding up his arms in defence. The video also shows a 15-minute period where police sporadically squirt spray through the vents in the cell wall. At times there were up to seven uniformed officers watching. In the video, police with batons and shields then try to calm down Falwasser and he is hit on the head with a baton, leaving the cell floor covered in his blood.
Hey, there are our boys in blue acting out a bit of cell justice on dear old Rawiri Falwasser, note to all people with mental health problems DON’T get caught by the cops, if this is what our boys in blue do when they are being filmed, goodness knows what they get up to when they aren’t. Notice the continued pepper spraying, the nonchalance of the other cops who turn up for a bit of a perv, and then the baton beatings – can you believe that these cops were let off?
