Before you view the video: The driver of the Range Rover is 74 year old Robert Whatley. Earlier he had been pulled over by the two police officers (in the chasing car), for failing to wear a seatbelt.
Mr Whatley was fined £135 for failing to wear a seat belt, failing to stop, using a vehicle with defective registration plates and having non-standard tinted windows. However he also received £20.750 compensation from Gwent Police for the damage to his car and £45,000 in costs, an employment tribunal heard.
Why was the pensioner mentioned at an employment tribunal? Well, the police officer on the end of the baton has won an employment tribunal case where he insisted he'd been 'forced out of his job due to a bullying campaign'. It appears his compensation will be a six-figure sum.
Looking at the video and noting the frenzied attitudes of the three officers involved, I would suggest a little time in one of HM prisons would be far more suited to their behaviour.
How did this country get to the stage that thugs are rewarded? The officers should have been charged with assault and then dismissed from the force.
