G20 Protest
« on: Apr 01, 2009, 13:43 »
Hmmm

Sure enough, whenever there is a protest march (and this one seems valid and worthwhile) it attracts the less welcome 'Protest Thugs'

You know the sort?.... The types who protest about anything at all, provided it gives them an 'excuse' to behave like morons, assaulting people, and generally being a pain in the ass.

Obviously, having taken time off from being Animal Rights activists / Anti hunt saboteurs/ Hippies against the price of Lentils/ Communism for all except me/ save the Tibetan ant/ Twitter against Facebook...blah blah... they have seen the weather forecast says it will be sunny and warm, and have packed up their stones, scaffold poles, eggs, red smoke bombs, and gone looking for the nearest "Narc Pig" to batter!

Thereby of course, the media will report on their thuggery, rather than the real reason for the valid protest.

This sort of protester is always counter productive!...they don't really care about Global recession, or Climate change anyway!...and if there were enough innocent protesters to hide behind, they would probably be as likely to be seen at a Pro-Nazi demo, or a Pro- Leninist one!.... they are too thick to notice the difference!

Makes ya wanna puke!

Good at protesting, but not so hot with solutions.

Just come back from London and the place is swarming with Police.
It seems to always be the same sort of "protester" that has to cause mayhem. People would take more time to listen to them if they less militant and thuggish and more for the solution side of things. It always looks like a group of thugs that use any excuse to have a battle in the name of Protest and people are fed up with them now I reckon.
We have enough vandalism on the streets of out country without this lot joining in.

They are a bunch of cretins, certainly the ones on the news last night.

One of the news programmes here spoke to one of the protesters by phone. When asked what they were protesting she just spouted a whole load of gibberish which meant nothing. It ended up being a very short call.

There will always be people objecting to something.  A few of these protesters wanted a quiet protest and had to contend with the thug element that will always join in so they can vandalise and destroy in the name of democracy. This is what happened yet again but I wonder at the naive calibre of these quiet protesters who think that there will be peaceful protests. Bless them they are such innocents.
The man on the TV who was shouting " No violence" as he tried to stop the mob from smashing windows. Poor deluded sod.

This is what happens when you walk away from Police with your hands in your pockets, rather than running away, vaulting ticket barriers and boarding a tube train. They kill you anyway.  :wink:

This guy died of a heart attack 10 minutes later. He was walking home from his job as a newspaper seller and wasn't involved in any of the protests.

the poor bloke - had just finished his shift of selling the even standard newspaper and was walking home the only route he could...

no way did he deserved to get pushed to the ground like that...

he was walking away with his hands in his pockets...

if he had of done anything that derserved that kind of treatment before the video clip then why didn't the coppers arrest him / talk to him further..? no - they're just f*cking using their power like the thugs they are.

he deserves a manslaughter charge - but sweet fa will happen...

and before the video clip came to light - there was nothing in their official report that indicated that they used any violence at all...

In a few months time, it will be illegal in itself to film an altercation like this. They are going to introduce a law which will make it illegal to photgraph any police officer in the course of their duty. The photographer would have his camera confiscated, be arrested himself and there would be no evidence to show what had happened. There'd only be eyewitness evidence, and we all know that eyewitness evidence isn't valid when the police are involved. (it didn't help convict anyone at the John Charles de Menezes inquiry).

The man was assaulted and later died of a heart attack. If he hadn't managed to get his hands out of his pockets he could have cracked his skull on the pavement and died there and then. This is a disgrace. If you watch the video carefully he also seems to have been bitten by two police dogs and smacked with a truncheon before any of this happened.

yeah, I was aware of that law against photoing coppers etc - but wasn't exactly what the status was...

just they're on about us not being able to take pics in shopping centres, parks etc - but on the other hand they want to rely on the public to submit images of potenial terrorist crimes too....seems, they want it all....   :roll:

The law is really woolly too, it says that it would be an offence to take a photograph that 'may be of use to a terrorist'. That pretty much rules out any public building, or landmark if someone wants to object. The whole thing is getting out of hand, they're even stopping trainspotters from taking photos of trains, and there are reports of private security guards trying to confiscate cameras and manhandling people for taking photographs. I read about a dad who was challenged for taking photographs of his own daughter coming down a slide in a play park (his photo might contain other people's kids, and he might be a paedophile). For god's sake, how paranoid are we going to get? They're using anti-terrorist legislation to catch dog fouling, what next?
