    The response to any vandalism was disproportionate to any offense that may have occurred. Young people are always denigrated as liars and thieves and rogues who have to be crushed and taught their place. The rise and fall of the people's voice across the land, Allah O Akbar, and their peaceful assembly does not deserve the brutal suppression that the world has seen.
