    Why have there been so few arrests? There have been some truely hideous acts of vandalism at these protests, and hundreds or possibly thousands of cases of assault.
    So why so few arrests?

    Because the amount of manpower/paperwork/legal costs would be way beyond the public interest.

    No idea, makes me sick that the police have been treated like that, I know a lot of it isn't actually students, but some of it is, what have they done? Just like they attacked the supreme court. What has the supreme court got to do with legislation? Idiots.

    Actually I spoke to a few people I know in the police. A lot more people will get picked up over the next few weeks once the police view all their CCTV and video footage. Then they will send out bullitins to various police forces with names faces lists ect and many more will be picked up as individual officers may recognise certain races. The amount of people arrested will likely rise to over 100 in the next two or 3 months though you not hear about it
