I feel bad for this kid,he was protesting for a very worthy cause but Its lucky nobody was killed as there was a large crowd below,a moment of complete madness he will surely be regretting now.
I agree with the sentence but a young offenders institution is no place for a bright student,hes gonna have to grow up fast in there!

Some fair points but the principle concept behind Democracy os for the people to behave in a civilised manner and to respect the rights of tohers, whether they agree with it or not. Where in a Democracy does it allow protestors to attack, destroy, vandalize the property of others who are not involved in whats going on?
