PC Harper's killer boasts 'I'm a real man' as he's arrested outside pub aged 15 by a dozen cops

COP-killer Henry Long was arrested outside a pub by a dozen police when he was just 15 while bragging “I’m a real man”, video reveals.

Footage filmed two years before Long drove the car which dragged PC Andrew Harper to his death shows officers battling to bundle him into a patrol car.


Male and female cops try to calm his braying traveller family and friends who are yelling abuse.

Feral Long, locked up for 16 years last week for killing newlywed PC Harper, 28, boasts: “Look how many cops it takes to do me boys.

“I’m a real man, a real man!”

After besieged officers manage to cuff the yob’s hands behind his back he yells: “Beat the s*** out of me! You can’t do f*** all!”

His father, Carl, who posted the clip in April 2017, is heard to shout: “All of this for a 15-year-old f****** boy.”

Turning to the camera, he boasts: “He’s beat our record. Send the video so I can send it to my solicitor.

“Leg restraints and everything for a 15-year-old-boy. F****** joke.”

It was unclear why Long, then a juvenile, was being arrested or whether he was ever charged.

The thug, now 19, was sentenced on Friday after admitting manslaughter.



Albert Bowers and Jessie Cole, both 18, were each caged for 13 years after being found guilty by a jury.

All three smirked when cleared of murder as family cheered from the public gallery at the Old Bailey.

'SCREAMED AND CRIED EVERY DAY'

PC Harper died in August last year after getting caught in a tow rope trailing behind the teenage gang’s ­getaway car.

They had been stealing a quad bike in Sulhamstead, Berks.

His widow Lissie, 28, told the court she had “screamed and cried every day” since her husband’s death.

She said the killers, who sniggered throughout their trial, had destroyed her life.

Lissie said: “Four weeks was all I had with my husband. Four weeks to be called his wife.”

Gang leader Long’s family sparked fury with a vile online “ashes” taunt aimed at the grieving widow.

Helen Louise, thought to be a cousin, wrote: “At least we’ve got them coming home but she has his ashes so she got him at all times.”

His sister Lenamarie, who lived with Long on a traveller site, hailed the three killers as “the bravest boys”.

Sources, meanwhile, said Long had been taken under the wing of a hardman “protector” in prison.

The man, said to be pals with Long’s father, is paid to protect cons.
