when somebody does something wrong it is wrong, do we make up these same types of excuses when protesters throw things at police? the fight or flight thing or what it may of been like from their prospective? no we do not.
they commited a crime or did wrong and are critisied for it, yet when it is a cop we are suppose to take into account some different prespective of what it must of been like. wether your a cop or a protester it does not matter, what matters is did the person do something wrong and act in a proper manner or did they overstep a mark.
i could sit here if i wished excusing all the bad things protesters do, and suggest it is a unique situation and how things are different to police prespective etc, but i will not because that is no excuse for a start, just as it is no excuse if a police officer oversteps the mark.
