Did British Police Waterboard?

An investigation into police corruption has unearthed something ugly in England: Investigators are looking into claims that Metropolitan police officers used waterboarding when interrogating suspects. Ten officers were suspended in February for stealing property like flat screen televisions from suspects, but now six of them are being investigated for torture and fabricating evidence in November drug raids in Enfield and Tottenham. None of the suspected officers have been arrested. Police conduct has been called into question since the G-20 protest, when a man died shortly after being thrown to the ground by an officer.
