Your refering to the Rashomon effect. Same event but different perspectives as seen by people.
I agree with you that this is a perfect example of a Rashomon effect. Doesn't change the fact, that they have been asked to not block road ways or bridges, they have been told that permits have expired and its time to move on. When they fail to comply the police will get involved. If they want to continue to ignore the police then they will have to pay the piper. Don't blame the police for doing their jobs. Isn't the left making sure the police stay on the job with Obama's new "Jobs Plan"? Why give them money to do their jobs and then get pissed at them when they do?
If you can't do the time, then don't do the crime.
@Set Your a douche.
You're absolutely correct, let the police do their jobs. I'd be interested in seeing where it says in their job description to handle these events by beating the **** out of people. There';s a difference between using physical strength to subdue someone, which would cause temporary pain, and fracturing their skulls and putting them in a ******* coma. However, if you can show me where it directs the police to use that kind of force in a situation where lives are not threatened I'm willing to be convinced.
When the police tell a crowd to disperse, and it refuses to do so, what is the appropriate response for the police? Obviously endlessly repeating the dispersal order will be ineffectual. How can the police allow their authority to be flaunted?
I am neither a Christian nor a generally decent human being. Should I be kicking the **** out of hippies or throwing **** at police?
Is there any way I could do both?
How Christian of you Bipo!
It's always quite moving to see Christian spirit expressed so honestly.
However, I'm not a Christian and so I so I don't find it in the least hypocritical to offer you a drink from Serrano's Piss Christ..
Cut it with vinegar or whatever other liquid suits your taste.
I think the question should have been, what is your humane response to this. The offense did not justify the action.
