WTF? MOMENT OF THE DAY: WHY THE HELL ARE YOU ALL SO SURPRISED?


Anybody who might have watched the responses by the Greek population in the past few years to the complete failures of their government when it came to education or to the disastrous responses by the Greek government to the wildfires...

... cannot act all surprised that todays's demonstration (still in progress as I write this) has turned violent very quickly. Three people dead so far, in an arson attack against a bank (as if fire bombing a local branch would ever do more than hurt some innocent bank tellers, dear god, I do question not only the morals of people who do that, but also their intelligence). And on the other side, I just saw numerous police officers happily kicking and beating an innocent demonstrator, who was on the ground and desperately trying to protect his face from the jackboots.

I hope not more people get hurt.

But they probably will.
