It is important to remember the riot police are human beings just like us

I take iphone pics of the exhausted protestors for the daily feed. A mum comes back with her plate of peace offering untasted. I asked her why she bothers. She tells me it is important to remember the riot police are human beings just like us. They are suffering too. They are scared. The smoke from the burning tires are doing to them what their tear gas did to us. And five policemen have been shot to death. ‘They ask me why we are shooting at them. I tell them we are not shooting at them. I ask them why they shot my son to death. They tell me he was probably one of the people who shot them.’
