Brutal copper gets jailTagged as: nottinghamshire_police police repression tim_allatt

Former Notts firearms cop Timothy Allatt was sent down for 8 weeks today for assaulting a man he arrested in Sneinton last year. Allatt's 'gratuitous violence' left his victim with a collapsed lung and facial injuries. Allatt has already been kicked out of the force for using 'excessive force' in another arrest.
As usual, the forces of law and order have protected their own. By only charging Allatt with assault rather than grievous bodily harm (a punctured lung is a very serious injury) and due to 'glowing references' from others within the force, Allatt has got off with a very lenient sentence. 8 weeks is much shorter than the 2 years 9 months handed down to a teenager who chatted shit on Facebook, the 6 months for someone who stole a bottle of water and the 16 months given to a man who stole a lick of ice cream during the riots. And to add insult to injury, the bastard has launched an appeal and is out on bail already.
No justice, no peace.
