True , there is an obvious amount of hippocracy there, but overall, from the footage that I have seen,
those russian police seem to have a lesser threshold of tolerance. They seem to be much more agressive
in terms of hauling protesters off. God knows what they do to the protesters in the back room over there.
Sure, I think the pepper spraying of the students that occured here was excessive and unwarranted, but
generally protesters who are arrested here end up with a slap on the wrist so to speak.
That is unless you get hit in the head by a tear gas canister.
I'm not too well informed on the peaceful protest laws over in Moscow, are you?
I guess we should research that . S&F
