The WTO opponents in Cancun; such nice people.

Further to this, the S11 protesters/bottom feeders in Melbourne have now received the names and ranks of the Police officers to allow them to file individual law suits against the officer.

These are people who willingly placed themselves in the way of government officials going about their lawful business and were injured for their stupidity and are now trying to sue the officers (who you can gurantee would have loved to be anywhere else) for doing their jobs.

I'm frankly disgusted with the courts for caving in to such lunacy and the Police union for not supporting their members more. Piss-poor efforts. As for the protester, I pity their sorry lives.

Not to mention Victorian Premier Bracks for cancelling the policemen's barbecue following pressure from the usual suspects including feral and terminally unfunny comedian Rod Quantock: "Steve, mate, you can't be seen associating with cops, mate, I mean they're the stooges of evil capitalist multinationals. They're part of the problem, mate."

I wonder if the RSPCA can counter-sue the protestors for throwing ball bearings beneath the hooves of the police horses to trip them up, causing innocent creatures pain and suffering.

Don't forget to tack on damgages as in restitution for smashing property, and criminal charges on not just hindering people as they go about their business but , what is quite obvious in every case of `anti-globalism peaceful protests", threatening violence against any passer by, in addition to the police.

Accounts given by New Yorkers for example, of the violence and the consequent terror applies equally to those peace lovin recessives in Melbourne.

Funny how they never schedule these things in Texas. We've got beaches, high class accomodations, restaurant fare classier than Tex-Mex and chicken fried steak. It's a mystery, I tell ya.

Because Texans also got guns, that's why. (Or "thaytt's whah").

I'd like to see a bunch of feral protestor bums unload a can of shit over Texas' finest police officers.

Just for the reaction.

You might want to check out Bureaucrash. They've got all kinds of Cancun stuff, including interviews with some of those brilliant young protesters. ;)

Funny that. when i was in the states (GA )i never saw any road rage or violence like i see in my home town in NSW. Then i clicked to the GUN factor. everybody's COOL ( for a good reason).

People are always complaining about the brutality and stupidity of Philadelphia police. When we had the Republican convention here a few years back, the police just threw all the would-be protesters in jail for the smallest violations. Then, imagine it, there was some sort of huge delay in processing all of these extra little misdemeanors. The system was overburdened! So, while they got the best of treatment, the protesters weren't back on the street until the convention was over.

Such a shame.

If we hadn't chosen to drink coffee made by people who have to really work hard to bring home a few dollars to their children, instead of paying $4.50 a cup so coffee workers can send their children to WTO protests, they wouldn't have been forced to throw feces at people who have to really work hard to bring home a few dollars to their children.

This isn't complicated.

Would these count as biological weapons? Maybe they could send them to the ICC.

MacBeth, from the site you referenced:

"Today was the "big march" against the WTO in Cancun so when the big government cheerleaders walked over the hill, Crashers greeted them with our "Fair Trade" Soda Stand. We offered thirty protestors two prices for Cokes, Sprites or Bottled Waters: fifty cents or two dollars depending on whether or not they wanted to pay the free trade or fair trade price. Not surprisingly, 2/3rds chose the less expensive free trade price making it the choice of this generation. A group of anarchists formed a human chain around the Crashers because, like governments, they wanted to limit the peaceful trade between individuals. Or maybe they were tired of their fellow protestors looking like fools. Later a Mexican vendor set up shop in the exact same spot so his supply could meet their demand."
