Same story, different day!
This video clearly shows everything that is wrong with this country... it also shows why there was a revolution 2 years ago. We may have changed the name of the police but it is just the same people in uniform committing the same crimes against the citizens of Egypt! And then people complain about protesters using violence??? What do they expect? How many more people must be killed, tortured and humiliated by these people?

human decency
So Mr Morsi, the President of all Egyptians, has condoned and praised the CSF last week in Suez and Port Said and now, this is the behaviour we see from them. This was a middle aged man, dragged naked from a police van with his trousers round his ankles, beaten, kicked, dragged naked on the ground, by men who were young enough to be his childredn. WHO ARE THE THUGS NOW?? People have the right to protest. They have a right to be protected and policed. They pay for the police from their taxes. The police do not have the right to behave like this. A THUG IN A UNIFORM IS STILL A THUG

Two wrongs can't make right
I think that both the protester and the police are wrong. One side used violence to justify their discontent with the president, while the other side is under paid, under trained, and under tremounds amount of pressure. We've been played by our enemies, through street protests. We need to learn how to disagree with each other without hating one another. Western democracy has figured this skill out. Why can't we learn from them instead of recreation of a bloody wheel.

Egypt's News Media Is Responsible Too
All over the world, news media highlights injustices and help to shape the wisdom and rational thinking of the people.Like wise in Egypt,they have the similar capabilities to put common sense back into the people. Sadly, this is not happening in Egypt.Instead Egyptian media seems to be sensationalizing news. They potray the destructive leaders/forces as well-meaning citizens. The situation in Egypt is late but still not too late to be salvaged. News media must now get together with Al Ahram at the ffore front, go on the media offensive to bring back common sense and save democracy in Egypt. Don't fall into the trap of NSF who is probably waiting for Armed Forces coup. If this happens, the NSF has nothing to lose. It is Egypt and her citizens who will lose everything by having to wait for many more years before another democratic opportunity re emerges. My prayer to Almighty for Egypt and her people.

Pathetic Behavior, Truly Barbaric
For those who think that Mursi was elected so all is well, please read your history and you will find that Hitler was also elected in 1932 and he drove Germany to commit terrible atrocities all in the name of his ideals, etc. For those os you who wonder why the Polcie would do such things, the Police, CSF and MOI in Egypt have been in need of reform since the time of Nasser but now Mursi and MB using the same system of torture and abuse that Mubarak used and the MB complained bitterly against! Mursi and his government are inept at best, murderers at worst just like his predecessor Mubarak. The people of Egypt may take justice into their own hands with 60 years of pent up resentment and a failed state, failing economy, and all will have devastating consequences. The President Mursi, Primie Minister and Interior and Justice Ministers in Egypt just told the police Wednesday, 2 days ago, they must get tougher on the protestors. They gave them basically carte blanche to use live ammunition

"pity"
Showing an event without a comment is aimed at a prepared spectactor who reacts following social codes. For an unprepared one there is a comment necessary. What is the stance of Al-Ahram? Is it good or bad the man got beaten?

This is a raw video upload, not a packaged news story biased to either side
That is for you to decide Komorek, and not for Ahram Online to decide for you

For the love of GOD stop protesting
Everyone in America thinks Egypt can only protest. They don't know how to work, negotiate, or compromise. You have the right to voice but not violence. Morsi is elected. Elect a new parliament and have a voice.

Ramifications for Coup De Etat By Demo/Protest Against Democratic Government
In the event President Morsi is overthrown, it will satisfy Cengis and the opposition. Then, would we enjoy about Egypt throwing away peace and democracy. MB who has greater number of followers than all of the opposition put together will not sit idle. They will treat you with the same medicine dispensed for them. Their demonstration will command much bigger than the present protest and surely the Police and the Military will behave as they are acting now. Like wise a successor government will face even worse predicament than President Morsi faces. Peace and stability will prevail when all respect the result of the ballot box. Otherwise no properly elected government will be able to govern. However dissatisfied a citizen is, he must wait for the next election. Egypt cannot be perfect in the beginning of democracy and must quickly have a parliament . Bringing Hitler and Nazi Germany at par with with the present situation in Egypt is completely out context.

Elections do not guarantee Democracy or Freedom!
Hitler was also elected BUT DEMOCRACY WAS NOWHERE ON HIS RADAR AND NEITHER IS IT ON MURSI'S IN SPITE OF WHAT HE SAYS, HIS ACTIONS PROVE OTHERWISE DAILY! WE FOUGHT DAMN HARD TO GET HITLER AND HIS HENCHMEN OUT OF POWER FOR THEIR HORRENDOUS ATROCITIES! SAME THINGS ARE BEING DONE IN EGYPT UNDER MURSI AND THIS MB GOVERNMENT! TIME TO GET THEM OUT OF THE GOVERNMENT! THEY HAVE PROVEN THaT ALL THEY CAN DO IS LIE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!EGYPT HAS TURNED INTO A RELIGIOUS FASCIST STATE THAT DISENFRANCHISES EVERYONE BUT THE IKHWAN AND EVEN A BLIND DONKEY CAN FIGURE THIS ONE OUT.
