why did the accountant cross the road?

Not to get to the other side, according to the thugs police and other protective forces keeping dignitaries safe from peaceful dangerous protestors. Surely middle aged accountants strolling through the city with their children, heading for Yum Cha are covert terrorists. It must be the Hawaiian shirt that gave him away.

This would almost be funny if he wasn’t flung to the ground, dragged on the pavement, thrown into jail for ”resisting arrest” and kept incommunicado for 22 hours. It might be humourous if his son didn’t witness it and was traumatised. And maybe, just maybe, the boys in blue might have made the charges stick if Channel 9 hadn’t recorded the whole thing*.


Update 10.9.07 - Thanks to the kind soul who uploaded the footage to You Tube. Decide for yourself: is the man a threat or are the police abusing their powers?

That's shocking! I don't want to think about what would've happened if it hadn't been filmed.
