4. PC Gasson and PC John were policing a major anti education cuts demonstration in Hyde Park. It had escalated into a running battle between the police and demonstrators. They observed a young man running away from the crowd holding what they thought was a police truncheon. They gave chase and caught up with him. In fact the man was holding a cardboard tube. PC Gasson asked him his name which he refused to give however he did say that he was an art student rushing to a lecture. PC John said ‘a likely story’ and searched him.

PC John found a number of tubes about the man and said ‘Glue sniffer you’re coming with us’. At the police station PC Gasson and PC John ascertained the name of the student Che Smith. Smith asked to make a phone call and requested a lawyer. PC Gasson said ‘subversives like you are a serious threat to society’ and denied his request. Smith was placed in a cell and for the next five hours questioned without break by PC Gasson and John. Under pressure and a promise by PC John that he could go home Smith confessed to drug abuse.

Advise Smith on the legality of the behaviour of the police.
