andath I was just about to say the exact same thing.
The police can't win, the crowds are breaking lockdown rules, but that's gone out the window now.
I see they have been criticised for using horses, they pointed out that 7 horses can do the job of 20-50 officers.
I've seen footage of atrocious behaviour by the police and the protesters.
Wouldn't want to be in their shoes (the police) trying to bring the unpeaceful protesters to task.
