Death of Ian Tomlinson 1 year on: Bill Maloney reports
Caution: Some strong language!
Award winning film director Bill Maloney and his courageous camera woman Lilly Starr join the grieving family of Ian Tomlinson to pay their respects on the anniversary of his death.
Ian Tomlinson was innocently making his way home from work through the G20 protests in London on 1 April 2009. Videos and CCTV footage showed an unprovoked assault on Mr Tomlinson by a police officer striking him from behind with a baton then proceeding to thrust him, also from behind pushing him with force to the ground.
The police made no attempt to help Mr Tomlinson. He died shortly afterwards on the pavement in the street. Bill Maloney exposes the fear that Ian’s family have of speaking out against the Establishment, this is corroborated by Ian Tomlinson’s son ‘Paul’ in this video.
