    Default 48 arrested in Montreal protest

    I just wanted to steal Krackers thunder.

    http://www.cbc.ca/canada/montreal/st...ceprotest.html

    A rally to protest police brutality. How ironic.

    Of course such events are sure to attract nothing but the most law-biding and peaceful members of any city.

    We all should be outraged at police brutality. The problem is when your outrage becomes irrational, and you make yourself and your cause substantially easier to marginalize.

    Agree with Phrost, who says protests can't be peaceful yet still bring a strong clear message?

    Part of the news article:

    Action
    'Television footage showed some people throwing rocks at businesses, including hotels.'
    Reaction
    'Protesters were shown to be clutching their faces because of tear gas released by police'

    I'm totally ok with police tear gassing people who think smashing someone elses windows serves the greater social good.

    Actually, I'd be ok with the police hand-cuffing those people and then handing them over to the victims of said window breaking and allow them to come to an "agreement".

    Elipson - when you say 'agreement', do you mean a proper discussion as to reparation for damage to property outside of court or something more violent?

    I find it funny how some rioters (as opposed to 'protestors') will get really dramatic as soon as they spot a TV camera. "Ouch, a rubber bullet pinged off my head", "oh noez pepper spray up my noze".

    Well, sometime yes. Sometimes no.
