You are taking the word of this man just because he said so.

Are you aware that he is a martial arts trainer? So obviously he is not debilitated by Parkinson's disease that he wants everyone to believe.

Furthermore, the police found a knife on him, although reports say it was "legal."

Re: Man arrested for not smiling at Olympics
London: A father with Parkinson’s disease was arrested as he watched the Olympic cycling road race because he ‘failed to smile or look like he was enjoying himself’.

Mark Worsfold, a martial arts trainer and former soldier, claims that he was thrown to the floor and handcuffed just as cyclists passed by.

His worried wife Nicola only found out he was being held after she reported him missing when he did not turn up for their daughter’s ninth birthday party.

The 54-year-old had his fingerprints, DNA and mugshot taken before being questioned about why he did not appear to be enjoying the event on July 28.

Police said Worsfold, who was held for over five hours, was arrested because of ‘his manner, his state of dress and his proximity to the course’. A spokesman added that the arrest was necessary to avoid a breach of the peace because he was standing near a group of protesters.

But Worsfold, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2010, said that one of the symptoms of the disease is muscle rigidity, which can cause his face to become expressionless and mask-like.

Worsfold, who had stopped to watch the men’s road race in Leatherhead, Surrey, after holding a Taekwondo demonstration nearby, said officers told him he was being arrested and taken to Reigate police station because he was not smiling.

‘I was sitting minding my own business,’ he told a local newspaper. ‘Before I knew anything the police grabbed me off this seven-foot wall, threw me to the floor and cuffed me so all I saw of the cycle race was between the feet of people from the pavement.

Wow this really hits home with me because my martial arts teacher has parkinson's and the only way he can smile is by forcibly smirk just like the great Cassius Clay. He is also a bass musician and whenever he plays or practices martial arts his arm stops shaking.

I can understand some behavioral profiling at the Olympics. Ask him a few questions, etc. to see what he's up to. But immediately arresting him based on his appearance, seems ridiculous.

It makes total sense to assault police officers when you're being arrested.

It doesn't make sense purely because of the further trouble you will get in to. IMO it is justified if you haven't done anything wrong since that surely is wrongful arrest and therefore no different from an assault by any other member of the public.

Re: Man arrested for not smiling at Olympics
if you read into it, it turns out he was actually arrested by the London pre-crime division of the police, for a crime he was about to commit.

heres what the daily mail said.

"In a statement, the spokesman added: ‘He was positioned close to a group of protesters and based on his manner, his state of dress and his proximity to the course, officers made an arrest to prevent a possible breach of the peace."

Re: Man arrested for not smiling at Olympics
has anyone seen the police side of the story?,parkinsons disease means the man had problems with motor movements. My brother has schizophrenia and the medication he took when it was severe, affected his ability to smile.

Its not just that but he had a severe aggressive look. I can't really comment on this particular situation. But if u have looked someone in the eye, with motor movement problems they can give u an expression that looks very hostile.


so instead of become all preachy on here..hate authority..bla blah.. have a good look at the other side of the story.

You're aware that Obama has given more in military and general aid to Israel than any other President in history, correct?

This clearly makes Obama the most pro-Israel U.S. president of all time.

As a Zionist, like Obama, do you applaud the president for giving so much to Israel?

Do you feel he should cut back? Do you feel he should give even more?

As a Zionist, like Obama, I assume you want Obama to invade Iran to protect Israel's best interests, correct?

I don't know about anyone else but I'm taking the word of the police who arrested him and kept him for 5 hours because of "his manner, his state of dress and his proximity to the course" (his manner being sitting, unsmiling on a wall), hardly suitable grounds for arrest IMO. Also, he doesn't claim to be debilitated by Parkinson's Disease and in the early stages of the disease martial arts would be a perfect way to retain flexibility and motor control and help stave off the later symptoms of the disease (muscle rigidity being one of the earliest).

I honestly can't understand why any right thinking person could be anything other than horrified by this. It takes all sorts, I suppose...
