Fair enough. Reasonable force can be used to through them in the paddy wagon is fair enough. Cops shouldn't be interfering in peaceful protests though. Just let em blow off steam, in the 90s our polititians learnt to ignore rent a mob. The PM got nervous, one of the ministers just said ignore them. Let em rant, worry about the ballot box on election day. Putin would probably win election if Russia had NZs political structure, the opposition would have more representation than Russia atm but you could ignore them just like NZ. All they want is to be seen and heard.
