Police brutality. 8 February 2011

Two men sit in a bar over a beer and watch the news on television showing crowds of Egyptian people demonstrating against President Mubarak. One of them says 'police brutality' was one of the factors that started the protests and the other expresses relief that New Zealand doesn't have that problem. But the first man watches a policeman being attacked through the window and says 'sadly, in a way, we kinda do!' Context - the popular uprising in Egypt aimed at overthrowing Mubarak and initiating democratic elections and in New Zealand several attacks against individual police personel in recent months.
