Schoolchildren lose police 'kettling' case
Kettling is a term "protestors" and the news media use for containment or basically not letting crowds smash a city up by stopping them moving out of a contained area.
BBC News - Schoolchildren lose police 'kettling' case
The Metropolitan Police (Met) acted lawfully when they "kettled" three teenagers during the tuition fee protests in London, the High Court has ruled.
Adam Castle, 16, his sister Rosie, 15, and Sam Eaton, 16, all from north London, were held at Trafalgar Square on 24 November for about seven hours.
They had sought damages, claiming their human rights were breached.
The Met's barrister said its tactics were legal and proportionate.
The teenagers were among 10 friends who gathered with thousands of others at Trafalgar Square during the demonstrations.
They set off to march towards the Houses of Parliament, but as they moved down Whitehall officers used the tactic of kettling to contain them, fearing a breach of the peace."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.
"the world is a dangerous place place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who do not do anything about it" Albert Einstein

Beat them while the courts are actually on your side.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
