Its just sickening,

I dont know how anyone could easily shoot someone like that, he was clearly unarmed.

The protestor was brave (a la the famous Tianamen protestor stopping the tanks) and the sniper was cowardly.

Dood...
Stuff has kicked off there hardcore
the photo's I've seen so far show
a lot of dead


Not sure from the video
but it may have been rubber bullets
the only reason I say that..
you see no exit holes out his back.

the last time they Rioted
the police were using rubber bullets
and sniping for peoples eyes
permanently blinding them


its gonna get a hell of a lot worse
before it gets better

Well, police warned him before they shot him, its his fault as well.

Protesters are not so innocent,

your right...

it 1st looks
like they start firing high
so the protesters clear off back...

but the 1 guy stays there
with open arms...
upon watching it the 2nd time
I see what I missed the 1st


it would seem he was trying
to be martyred
something I don't understand :shk:

the protestor was stupid, that's why he is dead....do you think the hundreds of protestors that were killed were smart? there was an opportunity for this to be worked out peacefully, but others that wanted the bloodshed won out over the stupid people, who ended up getting killed.

It's good that value human life on ATS, but your naivety is being taken advantage of by MB public relations depth.
The press are not in Egypt so MB is releasing YT videos with( wild titles.
Are you unaware of Christian churches burned to the ground and nuns raped by MB followers?
I would be shocked if you did not have empathy for nuns.

The Blaze website has the facts.

As i've said in other threads on this topic, it seems as if both sides are using youtube/twitter as a means to spread propaganda that makes their side look like the innocent ones in this growing conflict. Since most of these protestors seem unarmed then its simply murder to kill them for protesting.

However...on a lighter note..

Am i the only one who was reminded of that old Gary Larson cartoon with the men wandering through the jungle..
That's why i never walk in front

surely you jest!!


You mean they've learnt from the Syrian Rebels over the past 2 full years of war and intend to spread it to further their political and military objectives?

I saw a MB video where they were CREATING photos of them in pain holding banners etc...

there you go

His arms were not raised in surrender.
They were raised in arrogance.

We see that a lot in thug communities in the US.

I am utterly disgusted at the some of the posts in this thread. It shames me to be human when people will try and blame an un-armed, non threatening protester for getting shot by guys standing next to tanks.

Shame on you. I don't care what the protest was about and I don't care about any of the details.

The facts are VERY simple.

An un-armed, non violent acting protester, was shot, multiple times it looks like for what amounts to yelling.

And some of you would support that action?

ATS Thread on Cairo

If you all feel that way, take a stroll through this thread and watch the video where the bodies of protestors are being burned by soldiers.

Or perhaps you would like some of the still images of children being killed?

Seriously, if this was America you would all be going ape # but i guess the only lives that matter are the white people in your own country right?

Here is the full article from that video

Sorry, it is you are naive too.
The proof is in this thread getting only four flags as this post.
Read my post and link above then understand the truth.

Is this not the reaction the MB are looking for though? I'm just saying. I feel for the guy.

He knew the risks. He heard the gunfire yet stood there arms up aware he may be shot, and was.

Essentially creating his half of the situation.
The gunman who unjustifiably took the shot 'created' the other half.

I think it shows the crazed belief of both sides to be honest.
imo on part to protest for a return to an Islamic Dictator, or to pull the trigger on behalf of your commander.

I don't know the reasons he was there but they seem to me somewhat of a martyrish quality.

It's not like he was the first person shot. He knew what he was doing standing there like that.
I hate to be blaming this guy but it just seems ridiculous to try and defend him.

That said, the gunman clearly committed an act of murder and he should be tried.

So by being against a protester being shot, I'm now FOR Christian churches being burnt and nuns being raped?

Is that what you are implying?

I think it is not I who is Naive. I haven't chosen a side. I don't even know if that guy was pro morsi or not, and quite frankly I don't care.

He was un-armed and not acting in any way that was threatening or violent to people sitting in tanks with automatic weapons.
