Comment from: J.Markarian
An anonymous policeman interviewed remarked on his orders from above :
“And no, there was no training, we were just told to beat people when there were no media around, that is, to be discreet. You couldn’t just hit the people openly because there were cameras around that could spot you.
The order is always clear when we are working for these people. There is no discussion: hit the people, and do it when the media aren’t around. And in this case, it was to hit anything that moved… that’s why…”
Thanks to new technology this is no longer so easy for the police. This story about police violence has now made its way around the world.
