The thing that keeps popping into my mind whenever these scenes are acted out concerns the mindset of the police.
They are citizens as well... do they not see that the protests are in defense of their future as well?
In countries like Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, they hire "mercenaries" to shoot and kill the protesters, because they are less likely to have moral
qualms about doing so. (No NATO intervention there mind you, but that is for another thread.)
Yes, these are rubber bullets, but the mindset is similar, only in this case, the "peace officers" (very Orwellian, I know, "war is peace!") are
potentially shooting at their neighbors, not to mention family members. It is a situation I simply cannot understand.
