This is perhaps one of the most surreal interviews I have ever seen. BBC presenter Ben Brown rudely grills Jodi McIntyre, a severely disabled, wheelchair bound cerebal palsy sufferer whether he ‘incited’ violence against him at a recent student fee protest where he was dragged from his wheel chair across concrete pavement by the police. The footage of the incident was recorded on camera and it is clear to anyone with functioning eyes that MacIntyre presented absolutely no threat to the police and was treated despicably. Brown should be severely reprimanded by the BBC for his treatment of McIntyre and for insinuating that he was in any way responsible for the appalling police behaviour. McIntyre does a pretty good job of trashing Brown, calling him out for his preposterous questioning and refuting any of the charges levelled against him:
Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
