Was watching footage of this on the news tonight. It seems like every few paces a Free Tibet protestor broke through the crowd and made a run in front of the procession with a placard or a water pistol, only to be mown down Bodyguard style by a bunch of overzealous uniformed goons like he or she was about to detonate a suicide bomb. I was really shocked at the voracity of the police response. None of the protestors resisted arrest when caught, but at one point a bloke had about 5 policemen on top of him kneeing him in the back. In another scene a man rushed in front of the procession and ran along ahead of it with a banner and a policeman peddled up behind him as fast as his fat donut shitting arse could drive his thighs and literally jumped off the saddle onto his back to bring him down.
WTF?? It was like watching a protest being put down in one of the countries the protest was about.
