In the run up to the TUC march on the 26th March, we thought we’d run a series of top ten nasty FIT cops for you to look out for.
Number One in the series is the now notorious Delroy Smellie.
Smellie is a FIT cop of days long gone, before he went to join the TSG. After hitting the headlines for violence against protester Nicky Fisher, the TSG decided he was better suited to intelligence, and put him back on FIT duty. He’s been seen at UK Uncut demos, amongst others, and now sports the shoulder number U5042.
Smellie’s a big bloke, which made it even more shocking that he laid into Nicky, who is not a big woman. He slapped her in the face, and followed it up with a couple of baton strikes to the leg. She had apparently shouted at him a bit, and he felt threatened, fearing the carton of orange juice she was carrying was, in fact, a weapon.
The case went to court, but Nicky Fisher failed to appear, and Smellie got off.
There are two possible conclusions. Either Smellie is a bully, who likes throwing his considerable weight around, or he’s a ridiculous coward, threatened by cartons of orange juice. On second thoughts, he’s probably both.
If you see him out and about, let him know what you think of him. Call him by his name, I’m sure he’d like that.
If you do see him, let us know. Better still, take some pictures and send them to us at Fitwatch.
