Sean Sherk's UK police ordeal

source: fightersonlymag.com
 

Sean Sherk was in the UK on a seminar tour, but ended up getting dragged out of a vehicle by heavily armed police, when the car he was travelling in ended up on a police database as being linked to a key gangland figure.

The vehicle he was travelling in was stopped by a roadblock and armed police swooped on the vehicle.

The incident involved several carloads of police officers carrying automatic weapons, including Hechler and Koch MP5 machine guns - the UK police do not normally carry guns.

Sherk did not understand instruction to exit the vehicle, and was dragged out by tense officers. They cuffed his hands behind his back and pulled him away where he was none too gently searched before being dumped on the floor.

Sherk and his driver were eventually allowed on their way.

Sherk took the incident in good spirits, but noted that the officers were much more aggressive and heavy-handed than what he has ever experienced in the US.

Why would they face charges if someone dies in custody? A junkies life style would lead to them being in police detention and ultimately a early death. Just so happens they die on one of the many occasions they are in custody, I would say its just a matter of time.

I don't have an ego to get bruised mate and I'm not trouble causer, I was going to check up on him as he wasn't in the best state and i was given no warning, I was ragdolled straight to the floor....people only read what they want to believe! I've got no reason to bullshit, I'm just calling it as my own personal experience! but as people on this thread have mentioned, when people do die in custody, or the bloke who died during the protests in London, nobody EVER faces charges and if they do they get away with it
