Also, the minute I heard that the police were given the "power" to demand ID and search anyone in certain areas, I laughed so loud it woke up my neighbours. And then I realized how that stupid idea will no doubt INCREASE tension and cause even MORE hatred towards the police. My god, is the government that stupid to think people will sit by and take it up the ass?
I don't give a shit who or what government agency gave the police this supposed power, because the minute any peace officer tries to actually enforce such an act against a free citizen is the minute they become public enemy number one. NO cop has that right, no matter what any court says. Every person should fight against anyone who infringes on their rights, uniform or not. Both the police and the courts have become the true criminals here, not the guy walking up to some fence.
And when the government throws in a few Agent Provocateurs, it's high time to fight back with force against the thugs in power. I'm not promoting violence, I'm against it. Although there are genuine idiots and anarchists in the crowd, a lot of the frustration is now coming from average people who are upset about the police tactics. Those cops brought it on themselves in a big way. And if they wanna act like tough thugs themselves, we must remind them who really hires and pays them. Oh hey, does anyone remember exactly what the protesters were protesting about in the first place?
Happy G20. :)
