Video of anti-beef protestors attacking riot cops.
This video has been making the rounds on the internet. It shows a mob of protestors first attacking a bus, then taunting the police and grabbing their shields, then attacking the riot cops who are standing next to it. Looks like they're using baseball bats, sticks, and farm implements. Near the end of the video a guy moves in with a shovel and beats the shit out of the cops pinned against a bus. The English-language version of the Chosun Ilbo has a little story on the increasing violence found at these protests. I'm curious to see how long police will exercise such restraint, and curious to see whether this incident gets as much attention as the cases of quote-unquote police brutality that have made front-page news and have plagued these peaceful demonstrations. *cough cough cough*
