"the police are clearly used to protect the rich and powerful and suppress legitimate protest with violence and it's stupid and naive to say that's wrong?"

There's some truth in that and most cases the rich and powerful are the focal point.

Police officers are public officials who rely on the public trust. They are under moral obligation to act in accordance with ethical principles which have been previously justified and communally sanctioned. It is unacceptable for police or other public officials to conduct their duties in accordance with their own private ethical principles which appears to be the case with the cops shown on the video clip.

Changing the system either involves attempting to speak to your local MP (when they aren't filling in their expenses claims) about police strategies or forming your own pressure group and presenting your portfolio to downing street. Yeah i know it's probably like pissing in the wind.
