The above is a photograph of a chart which shows the organisational structure of the Metropolitan Police’s TSG – the Territorial Support Group – which currently faces a shitstorm of scandal due to its officers involvement in widespread violence at the G20 protests, including the death of Ian Tomlinson and the clearance of the peaceful Climate Camp.
The image was posted to the Wikipedia article on the TSG in early March, but following the G20 protests, it appears to have come to the notice of Scotland Yard, which seemingly wishes to censor its publication:
Hello, this is a message from the Metropolitan Police Service. We respect your right to postings, but on this occassion may we please respectfully request that you kindly remove the organisational chart from this page.
We have received a request from TSG CO20 for it to be removed as it is somewhat out of date, and contains officers names which could compromise their safety.
If you would to talk to a member of the Metropolitan Police Service Territorial Support Group to confirm this request, we would be happy to contact you, directly.
Many thanks indeed.
