45. There's probably a story here, but we'll never get to know what it is.

In the video, we see many police with helmets apparently riding herd on the march to make sure it doesn't stray from prescribed limits and bother the rich people, and other police who have taken off their helmets and appear to be marching with the protesters. I'd be tempted to romanticize and say that maybe some of the local police were disgusted with the program of repression they had been running all week, and took a little time out for a "job action," but there is nothing in any of the reports of the protests I've seen to back up that notion. And it was five days ago, so that's plenty of time for any controversy to surface. Furthermore, I haven't seen any propaganda from the protesters themselves to suggest that the police "joined" them.

So I'd like to know what's going on in this picture, but I have to question that it heralds a New Day.
