I did nothing, imagine you have the bayonet joking me, what are you doing? It is you creating war on me; I am not creating any war.
The police said don’t talk man, if you talk –Look! Man move –the other police run come and said ‘Turn around.”
When I turn around, he tied my hands behind my back, I then said
