Riots, not diets

Right. I'm a wee bit drunk, having just been to a Christmas party. But before I go to bed, I just want to say, with regards to the riots in Copenhagen today.
  1. Please remember that a country with no riots ever is most likely a totalitarian one.
  2. Don't believe everything you see on TV. I have a friend living right next to what was supposedly the epicentre of the riots and despite the police being "bombarded with bricks, fireworks and molotov cocktails", she didn't notice the riots until she read about them on the net. Just sayin'...
  3. Try to understand that the police are people and thus, not always good guys. Sometimes they lie and sometimes they smack people around just because they know they can get away with it.
    And seriously, stop giving me that BS argument that the police are "just doing their job". That might be so, but what would you usually call someone who fights for a cause they don't believe in, just for the money? Mercenaries?
And to all those people being shocked and outraged and what-f***ing-ever by these riots, well, I'm sorry, but what did you expect?! Hasn't the people in Ungdomshuset and their neighbours said all along that this what would happen? Stop being so goddamn surprised when people stand up for themselves, just because you're too sissy to do so.
