I was quite suprised how little of my mates watch/read the news. I get clued up in some way every day. Thought it'd be good to have a thread to post bits of important, interesting, shocking or even funny news, and then give your opinions on it. ---------- Post added at 08:52 ---------- Previous post was at 08:45 ---------- http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11966645 I can understand why the students are unhappy. They have a right to protest. There was a women on Daybreak who was speaking up for students, and she kept going on about police brutality. Thing is, among the students genuinely protesting against fee raises, there are those who want to cause mayhem and assault the police. So from a police point of view, you have a group of knobs throwing a metal barrier at them. If there's someone around that area, they're going to use force. But, an innocent student could be caught up in it. But the police can't take the chance. So it's not the police's fault. Why don't she blame the dicks causing the violence?
