Officer Behind G-20 Assault Comes Forward

The London police officer shown in newly released video footage pushing an unsuspecting protester to the ground during the G-20 demonstrations has come forward. The victim, Ian Tomlinson, a 47-year-old newspaper salesman on his way home from work, died minutes later of a heart attack. The officer, who reportedly pushed the man with his baton, will be the subject of a full criminal inquiry by the Independent Police Complaints Commission. According to the BBC, the video, which will form the basis of the inquiry, was filmed by an American hedge fund manager who happened to be in London during the economic summit earlier this month.
