    protesting is fine, as long as it doesn't interfere with other peoples lives or done on private property.

    vandalizing public property, causing mass derailment of local economies, preventing supply of goods and services is not protesting this is terrorism.

    I hope the crimes committed by the Police should also e highlighted, as to how horse of the water cannons were directly targeted at civilians, causing injury, which is an offense as water cannon and tear gas canisters is prohibited from being sprayed on DIRECTLY SAT civilians.

    THIS IS WHAT YOU COLL DEMOCRACY ........................

    Yes, I suppose the damage to the cut-out must have hurt the most.

    Democracy???????

    Tikshana Friday, 24 February 2012 05:59 AM

    Democracy does not mean the right to destroy public property and overthrow a legally elected government. Wait till the next elections if you are not happy.

    Sadarana Kota Friday, 24 February 2012 05:54 AM

    Protesting is Democracy..Police Charging against the protestors is really bad and against de,ocracy.However protestors breaking the traffic lights,etc causing damages to public property is not acceptable....People who caused damages to public property should get punished..

    The Police and even the courts are more than eage to take such actions only when opposition supporters are involved, while turning a blind eye to all atrocities committed by govenment members and their supporters. Time to give a different definition to this brand of Democracy: "By the idiots, for the idiots"

    Ramakumar Friday, 24 February 2012 06:07 AM

    can the judge ask the media to provide source of new and to provide material collected for the purpose publishing in the media. If so all cases can be judged by the materials provided by media and public.

    Sadarana Kota Friday, 24 February 2012 06:10 AM

    First You come forward

    Gamaraala Friday, 24 February 2012 06:26 AM

    Bad timing when our human rights record is on world stage. This is a classic example where the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing.

    democarzy in Asia's wonder

    Nodrog Friday, 24 February 2012 06:51 AM

    Protesters did not come armed with stones or weapons. They were intentionally provoked.

    CYMAs Wimala Friday, 24 February 2012 07:13 AM

    Protests to support is democracy.

    WimalaS CYMA Friday, 24 February 2012 07:19 AM

    Ordinary man Friday, 24 February 2012 07:23 AM

    manjula Friday, 24 February 2012 07:58 AM
