I would think this would be common knowledge by now--certainly it's common knowledge among the police: There are people whose only purpose in life is
to attend events like this and cause trouble. That is their only purpose on Planet Earth; that is what they do in life. That is where these things
always start, and as often as not it's the innocent people who are too close to them who suffer.
I tell you this from experience. Having attended many a protest in Berkeley, and having known a substantial number of these (self-described)
Anarchists, I tell you they are almost without exception the cause of these problems.
Of course the police welcome them. In most cases the police are waiting for their orders, their excuse, to put down the protest. What's more, I have
no doubt that they are taught in their training to aim for the head of the nearest protestor when they fire off their tear gas, their rubber bullets,
Just tonight I saw on the local (Oakland) news a police sergeant saying how sorry they were that this poor marine was injured; how many of their own
officers are underwater in their mortgages; etc., etc. But they were "just following orders."
Just following orders. Just following orders! Just following ORDERS! I ask you: Whose job is it to order their police forces to brutalize people
exercising their right to protest? Whose job is it to order their men to shoot someone in the head with (presumably) a gas canister, and then fire
flash-bang grenades at his comrades who come to his aid?
Sure they're sorry now. They're sorry their worthless, cowardly asses were video'd while doing it; sorry they've now been shown to be the
worthless, bullying s***s they are.
But, you know--they were just following orders....
