    Around here, they just use batons.


    Yeah I noticed that little grammar error too. Amazing the difference it can make. That IS pretty brutal!

    How I love protesters. They are usually the dumbest collection of humanity.

    Probably. You didn't properly box your comment in a way I can tell the way you said things. I take everything on base value. Sell me a boat with a marked-up value and I'll cut you.

    I've been trying to find videos of these protests on YouTube, unfortunately nobody seems to have posted vids yet.

    Edit: Here's vids from yesterday, unfortunately it doesn't include the clashes with police from today.

    No no no no.

    That's not the solution to get rid of hippies, that's how to get into a crowd of hippies.

    Its very simple how to get rid of hippies....
