The demonstrators present on Sunday also alleged that Da Costa was “brutally beaten” and some of them highlighted other cases in which black people have been killed and hurt by the police in the past.
The local borough commander, Supt Ian Larnder, stood in the middle of a group of protesters trying to answer their questions and calm tensions.
Some people reacted angrily, saying “you are protecting them” and “you have told us what you can’t do, now tell us what you can do” as members of the crowd pressed him about alleged police brutality.
More questions drowned him out as he told the largely black crowd: “I am here because l care deeply about what is going on.” Larnder also said: “Police officers are all accountable to the law, they are being investigated ... I genuinely feel for you. I will ring the IPCC and ask them what are you doing.”
When one of the campaigners asked if the officers involved in the incident were still working, he said: “I am pretty sure they have not been suspended but removed from operational duties.”

MOSUL. Falah Aziz says he's cut the head off 50 living people and killed 130 people in total. He calls himself the beheader. "Just that feeling, I can't explain how at ease I am with it," is his response when asked what it feels like to cut someone's head off." He is Iraqi and is fighting ISIS. It takes a long time to cut someone's head off. Heads are not being chopped off in this war. They are being cut off, with knives. When Falah Aziz does it, the person is lying on their back with him standing over them, sawing their head off with a knife. He sometimes has to pull the knife out again and have another go, to get the head to come off. To get a steady grip, he holds onto the chin of his victim with his other hand.
The video posted to Twitter captured the moment the female sniper giggled after narrowly avoiding a terrorist killer’s bullet. In the clip, a young woman can be seen peering from a vantage point above a battlefield in Raqqa, Syria. As she steadies her aim a bullet flies past her head and smashes into the wall behind her, just centimetres from killing her. But instead of recoiling in horror, the fighter laughs the threat away, sticking out her tongue and crouching down to talk to those around her. Journalist Hemze Hamza, who posted the video to Twitter, said: “Kurdish women know no fear. “Your average human being would be scared for life after being so close to death but she kept laughing.” The Kurdish sharpshooter is believed to be a member of the all-female YPG fighting group who have roughly 7,000 members. ISIS jihadis are said to believe they will not receive a reward in heaven if they are killed by a woman – leading scores of females to sign up and fight the terrorists. It comes as it is announced a US-backed operation by Syrian forces to capture Raqqa from ISIS will start in the coming “few days”. Thousands of troops are ready and waiting to wipe out the sick terror cult once and for all in a daring raid on the jihadi capital in Syria.

Apparently these apartments came fully supplied with furniture, so the furniture being tossed out of the Windows is in fact the landlords furniture and not the Muslim tenants.

Helmet cam footage out of Afghanistan shows an ODA Special Forces soldier being treated for his wounds, mid firefight, after being shot three times. According to the report, the elite soldier was hit with .30 caliber rounds, twice in the leg and once in the back. The beast troop manages to abruptly hobble away from the front line fight on his own and back to his medic, who immediately takes control of the situation by establishing security, assessing the damage, and treating the casualty. The medic was able to expertly stabilize his wounded brother until he could be medically evacuated, which wasn’t for another two hours, because of the intensity of the fighting and continuous enemy presence. The wounded soldier was given multiple blood transfusions and underwent two surgeries, but was soon back in Afghanistan only to be shot in the hand.
The Russian Ministry of Defence released footage on Sunday showing its Kalibr cruise missiles hitting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) targets in Syria's Hama region. The bombardment took place on Friday, as Russia's Krasnodar submarine and naval vessels Admiral Essen and Admiral Grigorovich launched missiles at the targets from the Eastern Mediterranean. According to the Defence Ministry, the missiles destroyed IS command and control centres, as well as ammunition depots close to the town of Aqerbat. Turkey as well as Israel was reportedly informed about the attacks using military communication channels.

A 24-year-old Iranian man has reportedly been arrested in connection with a knife attack in Sweden not long after being released from prison, where he was serving time for his involvement in the live streaming of a gang rape.
Yup, lots to unpack here.
According to Fria Tider, police responded to the report of a knife attack in Uppsala on Friday evening.
When they arrived, the outlet states, they found the suspect “who turned out to be the same 24-year-old Iranian who recently was convicted of involvement in the acclaimed Facebook rape.”
The man, in an obvious attempt to diversify his rap sheet, was allegedly attacking his own family with a knife. He allegedly proceeded to attack a police officer, landing him with charges of assault, attempted aggravated assault and assaulting a police officer.
Fria Tider further reports that the man, who is a Swedish citizen, was sentenced for aggravated defamation, minor drug offences and failure to report a rape.
The latter charge came in connection with his live streaming of his two friends in the act of raping a Swedish girl in an apartment. As The Sun reports, the horrific rape took place over three hours and was only stopped by the arrival of police, who had been tipped off by a viewer.

Police say an airport officer was stabbed in the neck Wednesday morning at Bishop International Airport in Flint.
The officer was taken to the hospital. Michigan State Police said the officer is in critical condition.
Police identified the injured officer as Lt. Jeff Neville. Bishop International Airport was evacuated and is closed.
Police said a suspect has been taken into custody. The airport released the following statement:
"All passengers are safe and are being evacuated at this time. Please check with your airline for potential cancellations or delays."
The FBI is leading the investigation. The Flint City Hall began operating under heightened security in an abundance of caution after the incident.
"Right now we are still awaiting more information about the situation at Bishop Airport this morning," Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said. "My thoughts and prayers are with all of our law enforcement officers who work to service and protect us each and every day. I want the public to know that several agencies are involved and working to ensure the situation is under control. However, at this time we are taking extra precautions just to be safe."

Guns, knives, and mace are flying off the shelves in Germany. With millions of young Arab and African males entering the country, the peace has been broken. No one walks about at night except in groups. Rape and other crimes have crept into the countrysides. No one feels safe any longer. With the rise of Sharia politics, civil war is now inevitable...
A town in Austria has refused to accept any more “refugees” after three migrants gang-raped a 15-year-old girl.
The young girl was making her way home on the evening of April 25th when she was grabbed and “brutally raped,” according to reports. The suspects are two men from Somali and one Afghan.
The town’s mayor responded to the incident by informing the government that Tulln would not be accepting any more refugees until further notice.
“For me, there is zero tolerance against asylum seekers who abuse their guest countries law. In view of what these criminals have done to the girl, the full severity of the law is required,” said Peter Eisenschenk.
Freedom Party Councillor Christian Hafenecker questioned why authorities did not inform the public about the incident “for almost a month,” putting people’s safety at risk.
“Countless cases already show that the migration of predominantly Muslim men under the cover of the asylum becomes an uncontrollable danger. It is therefore not at all clear why the Tulln’s population was not promptly warned by the police,” he said.
This is by no means the first time that Austria has been subjected to the “cultural enrichment” that newly arrived migrants bring.
An Iraqi refugee who raped a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool in Vienna later had his conviction overturned because judges found that he believed the child had consented.
The migrant told arresting officers that his assault of the boy was a “sexual emergency” because he had not had sex in 4 months, and didn’t even try to flee the scene of the assault because he thought it was perfectly acceptable behavior.
Despite raping a 10-year-old boy, the refugee’s case will be re-tried and he is likely to get away with a lighter sentence simply because he claims that the child consented to the horrific attack.
Russia has said it will treat US warplanes operating in parts of Syria where its air forces are also present as “targets” amid a diplomatic row caused by the downing of a Syrian jet.
The country’s defence ministry said it would track US-led coalition aircraft with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.
A hotline set up between Russia and the US to prevent mid-air collisions will also be suspended.
“All kinds of airborne vehicles, including aircraft and UAVs of the international coalition detected to the west of the Euphrates River will be tracked by the Russian SAM systems as air targets,” the Russian Defence Ministry said in a statement.
The warning comes after a US F-18 Super Hornet shot down a Syrian army SU-22 jet on Sunday in the countryside southwest of Raqqa – the first such downing of a Syrian jet by the US since the start of the country’s civil war in 2011.
Washington said the jet had dropped bombs near US-backed forces but Damascus said the plane was downed while flying a mission against Isis militants.
Russia’s defence ministry said the suspension of its communication line with the Americans would begin immediately.
The US did not use its hotline with Russia ahead of the downing of the Syrian government warplane, said the ministry, which accused the US of a “deliberate failure to make good on its commitments” under the deconfliction deal.

'He was shouting, I want to kill all Muslims'
A man has died and several people have been injured after a van ploughed into pedestrians near a north London mosque.
Khalid Amin, an eyewitness, describes what he saw happen.
FINSBURY PARK Mosque, which has a history of links to terrorism worldwide, has tried in recent years to change its image to the outside world under new management.
The mosque, which is housed in a five-storey building next to Finsbury Park tube station in the London borough of Islington in north London, was opened in 1994 in a ceremony attended by Prince Charles.
The mosque became notorious when Abu Hamza al-Masri became the imam in 1997. Hamza, who had one eye and no hands and used hook devices, lied that the injuries were suffered when he fought for al-Qaeda against Russian forces in Afghanistan.
He preached a strict interpretation of Islamic law and was outspoken about acts of terrorism.
In a sermon he spoke about the need for Jihad: “Allah likes those who believe in Him who kill those who do not believe in Him. Allah likes that. So if you Muslims don’t like that because you hate the blood, there is something wrong with you.”
The mosque became a meeting point for militant Islam’s most notorious figures. Zacarias Moussaoui, 9/11’s alleged 20th hijacker, and shoe bomber Richard Reid, were among those to attend the mosque.
Hazam was suspended from Finsbury Park Mosque in April 2002 and sacked in February 2003 by the Charity Commission, a government body that regulates charities in England and Wales.
More than 100 officers from London Metropolitan Police raided and shut down the mosque in 2003 over the alleged bioterrorism plot to attack the London Underground rail system.
Abu Hamza al-Masri has been found guilty of supporting terrorism by a court in New York and sentenced to life in prison. But who is the man who became the most prominent radical cleric in the United Kingdom?
Born Mustafa Kamel Mustafa in Alexandria, Egypt, on 15 April 1958, Abu Hamza was the son of a naval officer and a primary school headmistress. He initially studied civil engineering before leaving for England in 1979.
In London, one of his first jobs was as a nightclub bouncer. He married a British woman who he says encouraged him to embrace Islam.
"I took time off from the clubs and I enjoyed it," he said at his trial in the US.
He decided to resume his studies at Brighton Polytechnic and gained a civil engineering degree, joining the Institution of Civil Engineers where he remained a member until 1994.
His marriage rapidly broke down but he later remarried and had seven children.
One of Abu Hamza's first major engineering contracts took him to the Royal Military Training Academy at Sandhurst. Technical drawings of the college were still in his home when he was arrested in 2004.
In the early 1980s the young Abu Hamza started to show an interest in Islam and politics. He was heavily influenced by the Iranian revolution.
Some Muslim thinkers were calling for Islamic states in Islamic lands. They had a military face in the Mujahideen fighters who, backed by the US, emerged to oppose the Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan.
Three woman have been killed and 11 other people hurt in an explosion at an upscale Colombian shopping centre, the mayor has confirmed.
Witnesses told of being evacuated from movie theatres and stores after the blast in a second-floor women's bathroom at the upscale Centro Andino in the heart of Bogota's tourist district on Saturday afternoon.
Bogota mayor Enrique Penalosa called the blast a “cowardly terrorist attack”, and confirmed the deaths via Twitter. One of the women was a 23-year-old French national, he said.
Mr Penalosa said the French woman had spent six months volunteering in Colombia and was due to return to France.
He said another person was in a serious condition.
The other two victims, aged 27 and 31, were Colombian, local newspaper El Tiempo reported citing a statement from the Country Clinic hospital.

As a response to a US F-15E fighter jet shooting down a Iranian Shahed 129 attack drone after the craft reportedly fired a “dud” munition into a group of Western coalition-embedded fighting forces, Iran reportedly recorded a US drone over Syria and responded with the following message: "We can shoot you down anytime, but we have pity on you."
Dramatic moment former US Special Forces operative and aid worker David Eubank, runs through ISIS gunfire to rescue a little girl in Mosul
A 19-year-old border policewoman was killed and another female officer critically wounded in an attack Wednesday at Damascus Gate by three Arab terrorists wielding machine guns, pipe bombs and knives.
All three assailants were shot dead at the scene. Their explosives did not detonate and were later neutralized by a police bomb disposal team.
The commander of the Border Police team that killed two of the attackers said that he saw two of the terrorists shortly after 2 p.m. sitting on a bench wearing jackets, and that when he approached them they seemed to be uneasy.
He said he asked them for their identification cards, at which point one of them stood up, pulled a gun from his jacket and hit the officer over the head with the weapon.
Unknown assailants built barricades made of trash bins and set them on fire at Berlin's Rigaer Strasse, Friday, destroying at least three parked vehicles.

The streets have turned violent. Since early April, over 60 people have been killed and 1,000 injured as a result of protest-related violence.
Most protesters march peacefully, but a violent minority has prompted the government to call them terrorists. An intensifying crackdown has led to more than 2,500 arrests.
Many of them are represented by attorney Jorge Ramos, who runs a legal assistance group called the Venezuelan Penal Forum.
Ramos says there’s a benefit for the government to detain people.
