    It's fine and dandy to say, "this speaks for itself I won't add commentary", but that excludes us office troglodytes who have video blocked, and people with hearing issues.

    You don't want to be exclusionary elitists, do you?

    •  No - sorry - will try and see if I can help (5+ / 0-)

      But if someone can transcribe - it would be helpful.

      I am editing/analyzing video of the police actions on the 24th for evidence of abuses.

      But will try and see if I can give some narrative - if someone else doesn't step up.

      •  I'll do it now, and post it here. You can (0+ / 0-)

        then cut and paste and add it.

        :)

        This blockquote section is the guy with the bullhorn speaking, follows is his interaction with the first "policeman" type...

        Everything you read in the mainstream media is 100% true.

        Please! Go back to your jobs.

        If you have not got a job, you are a worthless human being.

        Consume! Consume! Consume until we have no planet left to consume.

        What you need to do is buy things that you don't need. That's the best way to support the economy.

        Smiling is bad for the economy. Please do not smile.

        Sir, sir! (unintelligible) to your next shopping experience.

        It's very important for children to be trained in ripping people's bodies to shreds. So come and buy some games with lots of killing and destruction and War.

        Independent thoughts lead to chaos.

        Thinking is boring. Thinking is hard work, and it's not worth the energy.

        If you see a Buddhist on the street, try and get them to leave their religion.

        (unintelligible) trying to get us to meditate. Meditation is a waste of good shopping time.

        Miserable people shop more, so, please, remain as miserable as you can.

        (unintelligible) the aliens of my planet, they call you Sheeple not people. I will not stoop so low...  baaaa-aa-aa-aa-aa (sound of a couple people chuckling here)

        It's very nice that we have security in a corporate zone, imitating corporate servants...

        screen shows the text: "the first fake policeman arrives"

        'policeman': "Alright, wait, no. You're not allowed. Not allowed. No sir.

        'bullhorn': "What am I not allowed to do?"

        'policeman': "Let me see your paperwork."

        'bullhorn': "My paperwork? Can I ask you something? Why are you dressed up "impersonating" a police officer?"

        'policeman': "I... I suggest you put... the... the megaphones down and stop protesting, please."

        'bullhorn': "You are suggesting that I put my megaphone down and stop protesting...."

        'policeman': "Now!"

        'bullhorn': "... I am not protesting. I am just speaking through (a) megaphone..."

        ('Policeman' shakes his head, as though he cannot believe what he is hearing.)

        'policeman': "Well, you're not allowed to do...

        'bullhorn': "... and what I do is give people... I give hugs... what you need is a hug." (moves forward to hug the 'policeman' who back ups rapidly) "... and you do need a hug..."

        'policeman': (unintelligible) ('Policeman' backs up more, waving 'Bullhorn' off as he does)

        Enter another person...

        'policeman #2': " (unintelligible) yourself, you caught me

        'Bullhorn': "Yes sir, yes sir, keep it calm, keep it calm."

        End of section one, timestamp 1:48 of 8:02, next up... SOHO - Central London....

        Begin, section II, timestamp 1:48 of 8:02
        SOHO - Central London

        Get back inside, and get back to work. That's what you should be doing. Stop putting your head out there (to figure in 2nd story window above him). Try to find your unintelligible, the more you work, the better. When you die, you'll regret that you haven't worked more.

        Oh, by the way, here's a gentleman. If you were told not to film this, that is an abuse of power. You are completely entitled to film whatever you like - and that is on the Metropolian Police website.

        So please continue.

        (small break in film here, only a few seconds, you can tell from the video)

        Isn't it amazing when people are in uniform, they completely lose their mind?

        starts conversation 2:15 of 8:02 with 'White Shirt'

        'White Shirt': ".. put down the megaphone for a moment ..."

        'Bullhorn': "I know you do, but I prefer to speak with the megaphone, so everybody knows what I'm saying."

        'White Shirt': "You 'aven't got permission to be in here..."

        'Bullhorn': "No one has got permission to be here. Hold on a second... excuse me, Madam, d'you have permission to be here? Do you have permission? Do you have permission? (moving from person to person as he asks)" .... "You're a very, very naughty lot of people. I think we unintelligible a lot of police out here..."

        End of scene #2, timestamp 2:33 of 8:02
