Police say the three were told to seek and locate protesters who were not peacefully demonstrating to prevent any violent incidents. Police say the three were marked by protesters when they refused to throw objects.
Let me get this straight, the protesters "marked" the cops because they wouldn't turn violent. That jives nicely with irrefutable evidence of protesters YELLING at the cops to put down the "object", because it had the potential to ruin an otherwise peaceful march. Did anyone notice any of the protesters with "objects" in their hands? I saw one person, but he was a police officer.
If we take this sad explanation at face value, then we had a group of protesters ready to engage in violence, the cops moved in, and the protesters were able to peg the cops because they too had "objects". "Hey, you're rock isn't limestone, its granite. Fraud, fraud!" It is actually pathetic that the police explanation still attempts to put the blame on the protesters, when there is NO evidence to support the claim. We are all fools, who apparently will buy anything, no matter how ridiculous.
