It was a warm summer's afternoon when six police officers, some plainclothed, some uniformed, dived out of an unmarked car and placed me under arrest. They forced me to the ground, handcuffed me behind my back and surrounded me. My first thought was that I was getting attacked by strangers. I was then piled into the back of the vehicle and driven to the police station.
