It’s sad to see a peaceful demonstration turn to a violent one because of a few idiots in the crowd getting too excited, but unfortunately with the pressures we face in today’s society sometimes such things are simply unavoidable. For example, take the most recent G20 summit demonstration in London, things turned to shit real quick. The demonstartion was largely against an array of issues, mostly anti-capitalist or pro-environmental in nature. A large underlying theme was anger with the effects of the economic downturn and a call for accountability and responsibility. While the majority of protesters were peaceful, a number of them took to smashing windows and throwing debris at police lines. London police responded with baton charges and arrests.

It only takes one person to throw something at a cop before they all get excited and start swinging their bats, it’s one of the best examples of the domino effect. Unfortunately lots of people got hurt and some even died. Not surprisingly misuse of force by police has been captured on video and one specific incident is under intense scrutiny by the public, that is the case of Ian Tomlinson who has been pushed by a police officer. Ian collapsed 10 minutes later and died. Here is the footage:
