Police Brutality?

Even if PC Paul Summerville was cleared of manslaughter, how can he not be guilty of assault causing actual bodily harm after stopping Robin Goodenough for driving whilst disqualified?

He was punched in the face and pulled out of the vehicle so violently he landed on his chin. Mr Goodenough's teeth were dislodged, the bone to which they were attached broken, his lips cut, with blood going into his throat affecting his breathing.

He died from a heart attack shortly afterwards.

I DO so hate it when people say "affecting" when they mean "affecting for the worse" i.e. impairing. A bloody crime, I calls it.

The answer's perfectly simple and involves wearing an apron and dodgy handshakes.......
