“Magistrates ordered no compensation for the officers.”

Kerry Lovegrove, prosecuting, told magistrates that the 24-year-old was told off by the guard for cycling on a station platform, which led to him swearing at the guard on July 14.

When his train arrived, Israr was told he could not board and he became further abusive with his bike ending up between the train and the platform.

Miss Lovegrove said police were called and, when they tried to arrest him, officers were injured.

PC Anna Morgan suffered tissue damage to her left knee, PCSO Harley Young was put in a head lock which left a red mark on his skin, while PCSO Nathan Stevensons was hit to his jaw.

Miss Lovegrove added: “He continued to be aggressive on the way to the police station.

“At the station he was searched, and the cannabis was found.”

Just another day on the enriched platforms of London…

Mark Sheward, defending, said: “He is adament he did not swear at the guard.

“He got angry because it was the last train, and he had no money.

“He accepts he lost his temper. It was a reckless act, rather than an intentional one.

“What he should have said is: ‘I’m sorry, I will cycle back to Malvern’.”

Well, yes. But that’s not what these people do, is it?

A probation report found Israr, of North Malvern Road, Malvern, had been drinking before the incident but he had now completely stopped drinking alcohol, as part of attempts to turn his life around from previous offending.

No mention of stopping the cannabis, I note…

Magistrates gave Israr a 12 month community order, and an eight week curfew.

He was also ordered to pay £185 costs, and a victim surcharge of £85 – a total of £270 which is to be paid off at a rate of £5 a week.

We know who’s paying that, don’t we? But why no compensation to the officers?

Simon Freebairn, chairman of the bench, said this because they only received minor injuries.

So it’s OK for police to get injured, so long as it’s minor? Gosh. I wonder if that should apply to magistrates too?

    I wonder how decisions like this will affect police and pcso men and women the next time they are called to deal with an uppity muslim? Why bother risking injury of the system isn’t there to protect you?

    But then they do themselves no good by the way they treat the likes of Tommy Robinson. The little pack of hyenas who arrested him in Leeds appeared to be enjoying themselves, and no danger of Tommy Robinson causing them injury.

    Ah. Mohammed. There we go. Another entitled, arrogant foreigner showing absolutely no British virtues whatsoever.
