Regardless of your opinion of the English Defence League, please note that the two men were arrested while participating in a public charity walk.
The video posted at YouTube on June 29, 2013 (hat tip to Infidel Bloggers Alliance):
Note this portion of the exchange:
Tommy Robinson to female police officer: "How have we obstructed you?"Information about the charity walk for The Neuroblastoma Alliance UK:
Female police officer: "I'm sorry, but I can't explain"
Millie’s mum Angela said, “Our beautiful gentle daughter is fighting for her life. On her second birthday, just two days before she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, Amelia-Mae told us she wanted her party guests to be two kittens, a rabbit and a hamster. Please give Amelia-Mae a chance of life by making a donation, help her by fundraising, or by sharing her story with everyone you know. The more people we can reach the more chance we have of meeting our £250,000 target and getting Amelia to the United States for treatment. We can’t do this without you! I ask everyone who reads this to do whatever they can to give our baby the chance to grow up.”...Read the rest HERE.
The charity has refused donations from the EDL:
Perhaps the participation of Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll in the charity walk for Amelia-Mae was a disguise for the EDL's political agenda. Nevertheless, Robinson and Carroll were arrested AFTER they were assaulted. Furthermore, the police officers in the video appear not to have said anything about the violation of a permit.
The question remains: Why were Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll arrested while they were participating in a charity walk?
To close this blog post, I offer the 2009 video below as a contrast to the video posted above:
According to the blurb at YouTube:
This video has been posted elsewhere by Muslims as a display of power...Muslims intimidate London police and force them back while yelling "Allah Akbar" and "run, cowards, kuffar; swine, pigs." They shove, beat and harass them with impunity. This is the largest city in Europe, heart of the West.
