    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.

    yeah i saw and heard it pass by neer to my workplace, cops were everywhere, helicopters were following it for hours and hours, then suddenly it all got louder and people were running towards it, police ran towards it, then it diverted away from the road i was on at the last minute, and i saw absolutely nothing at all.

    police always knee you in the back, its called pinning them to the ground, what do you expect the cops to do? you dont threaten to disrupt an important event and expect to get treated nicely do you?

    Eh? What fake guns? A luminous pump action water pistol you mean? Yeah, I bet the police get really nervy around schools in summer.

    Perhaps if the police jumped en masse on fewer people when they're not struggling or resisting, before kneeing them in their backs they'd get fewer people dying in police custody.
