Photographer David Hoffman´s opinion on police violence

Hoffman told the EPUK:

“I have covered many incidents of public disorder over the last 30 years.
Police violence has become far more extreme. The weapons used by the
police have become far more dangerous although their own defensive
equipment has improved considerably and the weapons used against the
police have actually become somewhat less dangerous.

He added: “That shift in the balance of power should enable the police to use force in a more
considered and directed manner but that is the opposite of what we observe.”
