[From "Chile: Cops Throw Protester Off a Bridge"]
There is also unrest in Chile.
Because these are the days of unrest.
Fortunately for Chile, their cops know how to deal with it.
Less than a month before Chile votes on whether to replace its Pinochet-era constitution, police have brutally repressed demonstrators in the capital, Santiago.
On Friday evening officers of the Carabineros police force used plumes of teargas and high-pressure water jets to disperse protesters congregating in Plaza Italia, where pockets of violence flared amid a heavy police presence.
Videos show a 16-year-old boy being bundled over the railings of a bridge by a police officer. The boy fell into the dirty concrete channel of the Mapocho river, where he lay motionless, face down in the shallow water.[…]
We would be a lot better off if the cops in every country were throwing people off of bridges.
It’s heartening to see.
Presumably, they’re getting ready for a communist revolution, like everyone else.
