Good points made in relation to yesterday's announcement that the police officer who attacked Ian Tomlinson (who died at the G20 protests last year) will not be facing criminal charges:
Madam Miaow: No police charged in Ian Tomlinson demo death
Liberal Conspiracy: A jury should decide the cause of Ian Tomlinson's death
(If you haven't seen it and can face it, video footage of the attack is on the Guardian website. Also, if you're in the UK, you may wish to sign the 38 degrees petition: Justice for Ian Tomlinson)

On the announcement that Yarl's Wood detention centre 'families wing' is to be closed:
Phil Shiner and Daniel Carey: Yarl's Wood itself is the moral outrage
(Medical Justice archives news coverage related to detention)

Plus, some good blog posts on bad media representations:
