well, i would not say that. he/she is entitled to their opinion, i just disagree with the principle that you either deserve to be beat up or should expect to be beat up for having beliefs or opinions.
which means i have to defend the person i was replying to and say he does not deserve to be labeled or attacked for his beliefs.
But then, the chants changed… “To the stairs! To the stairs!” Two policemen blocking a tiny door were soon brushed aside, and around fifty of us forced our way through before they had a chance to re-seal the entrance. It was an epic mission to the top. Nine floors; eighteen flights of stairs. Two friends carried my wheelchair, and I walked. We couldn’t give up now..

What is your complaint about:
BBC News with Ben Brown
Standards of Interviewing/Presenting
Jody McIntyre Interview
This is one of the worst interviews I have ever seen. I have, as of this moment, discontinued my use of BBC across all spectrums. I will endeavour to persuade my family, friends and associates to act in a similar manner. As a member of a family which contains a person with a disability, I was highly offended by Ben Browns ridiculous questions and insinuations that Jody McIntyre was a threat to police.
Add to this, Ben's insistence on labling Jody a "revolutionary" as justification for the horrific treatment he recieved from Police.
What has happened to the BBC?
I have seen the BBC prattle on about and defend Iranian rights with far more vigour and compassion and yet this biased attack was on one of your own, not to mention a person with a disability. The BBC's treatment of Jody absolutely made me sick.

Lets let 'em know people.
This is not on BBC.
Jody Macinytre, radical pro-Palestine supporter and sufferer from cerebral palsy has made much hay of the fact he was dragged out of his wheelchair by riot police at Thursday’s protests. Yet he has previously admitted to be coordinating breaking police lines. He claims on his blog he is a revolutionary yet spent a BBC interview declaring his innocence and denied live on Sky that he was in fact a revolutionary before going on to claim that the police had no reason to move him out of the way. However he has revelled in, and incited, violence on his website.
His argument is undone when a quick glance at his blog shows that he has been at the forefront of the protests so far at Westminster and managed to walk all the way up to the top of Millbank back in November, blogging that “It was an epic mission to the top. Nine floors; eighteen flights of stairs. Two friends carried my wheelchair, and I walked.” Macintyre can’t hide behind his disability when the police treat him like any other violent trespassing thug. It’s called equality…
Further pictorial evidence emerges of the police being as gentle as possible in moving Macintyre and in doing so the officers put themselves in personal danger from the hail of missiles. Here is a quote from Graham Mitchell the photographer “Mr McIntyre was in the front row of the crowd and in a very precarious position, especially as he is wheelchair bound. It was clear from my vantage point that the police moved him as gently as possible and in doing so the officers put themselves in personal danger from the hail of missiles. Once he had been moved away from the front line to a safe distance, the officers sat him on a low level wall. Mr McIntyre got up and started arguing with an officer. He was so wound up that he eventually tried to strike an officer and was only stopped from doing this due to the intervention of a famale passer-by.”
