Big stick, South Korea style

The good lads over at The Policeman's Blog have been smarting under "police brutality" accusations, and cite South Korean police actions as emblematic of the "eeeeee-vil" nature of said police force and how it gives all police a bad name. It's true: South Korean police put a smack-down on protests, with billy-clubs, tear gas, whatever it takes. And the protesters? They drink tear gas with their lunch.

Here's the thing.

South Koreans LOVE to protest. Police LOVE to break it up. And everyone's happy.

Think I'm kidding? Check this out.

I'm filled with admiration for this nation of scrappy, in-yer-face, not-afraid-of-anything people. We could learn a LOT from them.
