Africa’s Familiar Scenes

Though it is understandable that the police should do something to stop random violence by stone throwing demonstrators (even if they are small children), these riot police are obviously going way over the line with this … once they have entered the school compound they faced no resistance but they still beat the crap out of every two legged featherless animal they found. These are small children for heaven’s sake … they are half the size of the police officers. Rather than bringing to justice members of the police who went too far, the Justice Minister of Liberia defended the police and had the arrested students sign an apology letter … if you have any proof that those you arrested threw stones put them through juvenile justice and prosecute the police who beat up children who at the time of beating had surrendered and were not in any way committing acts of violence!
