Pressure mounts on Met Police over Night Stars/rape alarm arrests

The Metropolitan Police seems to be falling into increasingly deeper trouble over its decision to arrest members of an organisation that hands out rape alarms to vulnerable women.

The arrests were made at around 2am on the morning of the coronation, on the grounds that the rape alarms could be set off and thrown at mounted police to frighten their horses.

Over on Beastrabban’s Weblog, This Writer’s brother had this to say about it:

The volunteers, who I’ve heard were giving them away at 2 o’clock in the morning, have explained … that they do it to protect vulnerable women [and] girls on a night out.

This seems to me far more plausible than the Met’s story. I’ll be interested to see what evidence the Met has for this intelligence, assuming we’re allowed to see it and it’s not another fairy tale to allow the cops to clamp down on peaceful protesters and perfectly innocent volunteers in a fit of judicial paranoia.

He also found the Channel 4 News report on the matter, which is about as damning as a fair and balanced report can be:
