A gift for those who don’t like the police

December 15th, 2010 · post by Edd · 1 Comment


Last week we once again witnessed the Metropolitan Police at their worst: cracking skulls, dragging people out of wheelchairs and kettling people until 11pm. Last year Last Hours published Excessive Force, which I edited. With Christmas just round the corner it’s the perfect gift to give to anyone who hates the cops as much as we do, or for anyone who doesn’t understand how out of order the police are. You can buy it now from the Last Hours shop for just £7.

Preview excessive force

Whether drawing on personal experiences or imagined stories about modern policing one theme runs through: a shared view of brutal, oppressive policing. Policing that does more harm than good, and a system which hinders, rather than encourages freedom of expression. Or more simply put: acts like an Excessive Force.

Profits from Excessive Force will go towards FITwatch and the Legal Defence and Monitoring group both of whom work towards ending police repression.

Featuring work by: Stephanie McMillan, Ken Dahl, Scott Smith, Edd Baldry, Jimi Gherkin, and many others, they all artfully present their take on the police, with a fine mixture of humour, tragedy, anger and optimism.
