A Lebanese policeman was in the middle of the clashes when he completely lost it, sat down on the side of the road and started crying. When protesters spotted the police officer, they rushed and helped him out. One of the protester (Nassif el Rayyis) even caught the incident on [video] and I absolutely loved his caption “We cooperate, they dominate… They have orders to keep us apart, we have the courage to make the change”.
Police officers are just following orders and I’m sure most of them would never want to hit peaceful protesters. It’s too bad that the demonstrations turned violent and were hijacked by thugs yesterday night.
