One of the worst ones...Heartbreaking. Henry Bates (Harry) had his pet dog ‘Otis’ seized from the inside of his car by the Metropolitan Police on December 4th 1991, following a routine stop and check in the Blackwall Tunnel in East London. Otis was asleep in the car when one officer declared he looked like a ‘pit bull’ and seized him. Harry was later charged with having a dog unmuzzled and unleashed in a ‘public place’ contrary to Section One of the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. Following a Magistrates Court hearing in July 1992, Harry was found guilty and Otis, who had never harmed anyone or given cause for concern, was sentenced to death by the Court.

The Battle of Cable Street - October 4th 1936 In 1936, fascism was gaining ground across Europe. In Britain, Sir Oswald Mosley’s Blackshirted British Union of Fascists (BUF) portrayed Jewish people as the cause of the country’s problems. East London had the largest Jewish population in Britain and the announcement that Mosley and his Blackshirts planned a provocative march through the area on October the 4th was greeted with anger and a determination that it should be stopped. A petition was signed and local politicians tried to have the march called off - but to no avail. On the day, up to 250,000 people gathered to defend the East End. There was a fierce battle with the police when they attempted to clear a path for the march and a barricade was erected and defended in Cable Street.

The march could not proceed and Mosley ...
