Two police stop a puppet show even though they are outnumbered 100/1. They are so scared they call for a back up team. To much hilarity and mirth from the public. There was no violence but then again the people who were there just let themselves be ruled by 4 police who were "just doing their job" and "upholding the law". Is this democracy? Who makes these laws? Why do they make laws that everyone thinks are ridiculous? And why do we obey them?



Will someone please upload the video or explain in simple terms how to do it!!

I don't understand why the cops didn't taze and beat the puppeteer while simultaneously tear gassing the crowd, must be because I'm American.

Were those naughty puppets being rude about your royalty?

If you do succeed in getting rid of yours perhaps you could give us in the UK some hints as ours are well past their extravagant sell-by-date and apparently think we enjoy paying for 4 generations of them with all the cuts the wealthy in parlaiment are imposing on the average Brit! To make it worse our Prince Charles earned from his Duchy of Cornwall £18 million so he hardly needs money from the hardpressed, low paid public. especially as the queen got £47 million given to her curtesy of her sweet cousin Cameron. Someone asled arfe they openly laughing at the public of what???

lol I'm from the U.k originally.
I left because of the emerging police state after the criminal justice bill. It was so much more free here in Spain. But now it's actually worse. People still remember Franco and that people who spoke out against the regime simply disappeared. There have been huge protests though. Both political parties are facistic but we are one of the few countries who have managed to get an anarcho-socialist party elected into the european parliament.
They are called PODEMOS and were onnly 4 monthes old at electiion time. I would also like to point out that the OCCUPY movement actually started here with Los INDIGNADOS.

There was a kind of respect for the king here as he sort of brokered a constitutional parliament just like the U.K lol. But then he messed up by flaunting his richness, when the population was being told to shut up and be poor. Plus he went on a hunting trip, he shot an elephant and himself in the foot (literally). His daughter is involved in a huge embezzlement trial. His son who is taking over (probably) has done nothing except open some things and generally be a playboy. There is no respect whatsoever.

Here no one really protests unless they're sure others are going to protest, then it tends to escalate very quickly. The police are very very heavy handed. But recently have been defeated by sheer power of numbers. Not shown on U.K news, When they tried to close down a squatted building which had been a community centre for 17 years which provided free food, clothing, accomodation and training for work. 4 days and nights of rioting and the police and government just gave up.

To give another point of view here (and you're new here so you likely have no idea that I really do not like the police), the police were doing their job. Just doing my job isn't an excuse for committing crimes but the police do have a duty to uphold the laws their community passes. Laws aren't laws only when they're popular. It's a testament to the culture that it remained non violent on both sides.

What do you suggest should have been done? Should the public have formed up a lynch mob and gotten rid of the cops just because the police were doing something unpopular? Most police actions are unpopular, it just goes with the territory. People have a duty to break unjust laws but I'm not seeing what was unjust here. People similarly have a duty to obey the just ones.

Street performers are generally scumbags in Europe. No license, scam tourists, huge nuisance. I was in Italy when I was about 15, guy came up and started tying something on my arm. I thought it was some cultural weirdness. He makes a bracelet and then asks me for the equivalent of $10 US. I told him no, he insisted, I started trying to rip the thing off and he laughed. "Ok, a gift, a gift!" and walked away. They scam people left and right. You don't get to start setting up puppet shows everywhere in the middle of the street.

Have a video


Have another


Here's another


These people are almost always scammers (notice the people that argue with the police, the rest are probably tourists or locals that know better in OPs video).

The crowd cheered on the police.

I'll tell you exactly what this is because i live in Spain. Since about 5 years ago Barcelona has really cleaned up its act with reagrds to tourism. Theres an increased amount of police to stop the gypsies from Rumania stealing their wallets and posing as false cripples begging in the street. To perform in the street in Barcelona, you need to prove your act is good and you have to get a licence. If your shows crap, they don't give you a licence and you cant perform, if you play an instrument you have to be able to play 12 or more different songs. Its to control the image of Barcelona as a metropolitan centre for tourism.

This guy is a foreigner who has got a licence and isn't allow to perform. He go from performing to begging outside a supermarket later on, in the company of his dog (which all these people seem to have).

Nothing about police violence or new world order here, its about making Barcelona a nice place to visit with quality acts that are controled so the tourists dont have to watch this +hit while some scum picks their pocket.

Hes just a hippy trying to scam a few euros from the public without paying for his licence like all the other decent performers in Barcelona have to do..

This is exactly how it is...you are right.

Barcelona lives from tourism which has been adversly affected by scum gypsies from eastern europe invading and stealing what isn't screwed to the floor.

They want to keep the streets clean for decent people, however, harrasing scum is seen by some as being new world order. The O.P'er was probably in the riots in Barcelona a few weeks ago with his face covered.

OK ATS, have another video.



ATS is embarrassing sometimes. If it's anti cop, the majority believe it.

Recently the Catalonian police, the Mossos d'esqaudra, have recieved very, and i mean very, bad press due to an excess of violence on the streets. Beatings, blindings by rubber bullets and deaths have all been the cause of the sudden step down of the chief of police last month.

In the video you see the policia local, or the guardia urbana..the local county mounties who control traffic and stuff. If the Mossos had arrived, the hippy puppet man would have had his doll shoved up his ass and a beating given to him...

Glad you chimed in! There are certain places Americans just don't get are way too easy for bad people to steal.

Same thing happens in the US in certain cities. In New York people will put a CD in your hand pretending it's a gift, then demand you pay them. They won't take the thing back.

Best course of action in big cities is to not take anything from a stranger, don't let anyone touch you (Europe is hard for Americans because Americans are used to more personal space in crowds) ignore people that talk to you and look angry.

If you start getting scammed start yelling, these people don't want attention from the other potential victims ad especially not from the police. They may have a few friends that try to intimidate, but if you make noise they scatter.

Also PADLOCK YOUR ZIPPERS! If you have to wear a backpack, and you should avoid it, PADLOCK ALL THE ZIPPERS!
