Police take their Helmets off in Frankfurt to March with Occupy Protesters

YUPPEE! Just as the former DDR police was not willing to attack their own protesters in the run up of the Berlin Wall coming down, so do West German police prefer to march with Occupy protesters rather than fight or beat them.

I wonder how spontaneous that was!

Here’s a link to top videos.

Here’s the email that alerted me:

How about this!
From Occupy Frankfurt. May 19, 2012.
The German police took off their helmets and marched with the protesters– clearing the way for them.

The police coming over to serve and protect the people… Blockupy Frankfurt. Police are escorting. Reports of an estimated 20,000+ protesters. Nice to see their faces…. and their humanity coming through…

WATCH THIS VIDEO: #blockupy. Frankfurt

German police officers escort an anti-capitalism protest march with some 20,000 people in Frankfurt, Germany, Saturday, May 19, 2012. Protesters peacefully filled the city center of continental Europe’s biggest financial hub in their protest against the dominance of banks and what they perceive to be untamed capitalism, Frankfurt police spokesman Ruediger Regis said. The protest group calling itself Blockupy has called for blocking the access to the European Central Bank, which is located in Frankfurt’s business district. (AP Photo/Michael Probst)

Nice to see the police give protesters a hand. I think I will plan on my next vacation to visit Germany. Such friendly people there!
