For a short little clip from a mobile phone it makes for a very emotional roller-coaster. I flipped from worrying about the people in the crowd to fearing for the policeman pretty quickly. |
I'm very impressed with the protesters who helped the policeman to safety after he crashed his bike (got pushed off)... all the more impressive considering he'd just been baton charging them... But you've got to wonder what sort of idiot thought that motor cycles would be a good crowd dispersement tool. If they tried that with a more aggravated crowd the bikes would have been on the floor in seconds and all the riders would have been lucky to get out alive.
How long before Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sends in the tanks?
