    I havent seen the background to the initial quote, so I'm going to answer at face value.

    The Police are doing their job. They are trained to listen to orders, so the orders from the top have been to arrest protesters who they think are breaking the law. They feel they are being protected by the force and government so they are more open to stretching interpretation to what is breaking the law. If you hear their press conferences, they believe they are justified in any instances of police brutality. If the police on the ground feel they are being protected, they believe they can get away with more.

    Surely only an independent enquiry can get to the bottom of this issue. Since 2014 the police have changed

    Thats the whole point. Figments of imagination vs cold hard video evidence. Hey I see some guy getting bullied, he MUST have done something bad.
