Digging up laws from the military period? Are they nuts?!
I know right? I mean, what the fuck!?
And labeling "vandals" (or "vandalism") as "organized crime" is really stupid.
There is some twisted logic in that. There are
militant groups who go organized to the the protests. Including the now infamous black block group all dressed in black, wearing gas mask and carrying shields. Of course, calling them "vandals" is obscene as they rarely, if ever, start the confusion and mostly just go prepared because they know it is likely the police will crack down on everyone. The actual vandals and criminals, who naturally aways exist, just go with the bandwagon to see the confusion and obviously are not organized at all.
Basically, they are cracking down on the people who just want to defend themselves and the others from the police and treating them as dangerous criminal.
Has anyone been killed yet?
Again, I am not as up to date as I should. But, yes, people have died. It depends on what you mean by "killed", though. From what I know, which is not that much, it is mostly accidents. Like some driver being afraid of being catch up in the confusion and running over someone. But I know at last one person died as a consequence of tear gas.
I would like to debate the black block some more, but I think its off topic here. Can I entice anyone over here to continue that discussion?
I might post there when I get more involved with the protests again. Which won't happen 'till Monday, probably.
