POLICE have fired pepper spray at protesters in the Sydney CBD during a violent anti-US rally spurred by an internet video mocking Islam.

Officers - who have been showered with projectiles, including rocks, water bottles and scraps of wood gathered from nearby work sites - have already made several arrests and at least one person has been taken to hospital with a head injury.

About 80 officers set up perimeter around the protesters in Hyde Park, while a further 100 police officers were stationed near Parliament House in case the riot moved in that direction.

The Aussie police have experience dealing with these foolish Lebanese. So do the locals (back during the Cronulla riots a few years ago when the Lebbos stepped out of line).

God Bless the police officers.

I think the world is about ready to rip open...

It's either push back time; protect freedom or more chaos.

Boy Obama sure has brought everybody together. As for the little kid holding the sign that is ridiculous.

Obama and Hillary should be so proud

Thank you for the pictures naturalman1975.

The one that sticks out for me is the poor child holding the sign (third from the bottom). I feel bad for him, I have a son right around his age and I can tell by the picture and the look on his face that the kid would rather be doing anything other than standing there.

Once the muslims decide that their children's well being is more important than their stupid outrage over Americans we will see an end to this madness .... I won't hold my breath however :(

Islam is a death cult.

Its followers do not value life.

They destroy everything they come into contact with.

Gotta hand it to the Aussie cops. At least they were not like the Libyan security force who was confirmed of handing over the US staff members to the raghead mob.

This is the reason that you STOP ALL Islamic immigration into the West. These people do not belong in Western nations.

"Islam is a death cult. Its followers do not value life. They destroy everything they come into contact with."

I know DB, the poor child holding the sign doesn't know that yet and its sad he is burdened with his parents cult.

The little guy would fit in perfectly at our local park playing baseball, soccer or tag with my children. It breaks my heart that all he is exposed to is emotions of hate and evil.

We will win this war with islam when their society decides to put more effort into loving their children then they place in hating us.

again, with sadness, I'm not holding my breah

sounds like some countries know how to handle thugs...they should teach the USA. There was a time when police departments knew what to do.....dad being a mounted man in detroit talked about a few labor and race riots they had to settle down....A horse a full gallop and a cop swinging a 4=5 food billy club broke up lots of riots and stopped rioters from killing each other. Nothing makes you move like seeing that horse and rider heading your way, you move real quick....the labor riots were the worse...

Profound example of Muslim "innocence". I haven't seen the movie trailer but I am guessing that their actions are now confirming it's premise.

The more I look at that picture the angrier I get. I didn’t even notice the first time the mother has a camera and is taking a picture of her child holding the sign....like it is some precious “kodak” moment.

I wondered if there are mosques in certain American neighborhoods that have orders that they awaiting for the signal from their AQ masters to implement which might carry out similar riots?

Thank you for sharing this with me.

My son is a police officer. He is about ready to go to a new department; he's trying to hang in since he likes the area. They want the officers to be public citizen's friend; not many arrests or you get called in-so much liberal stuff. Even with situations on video, the internal guys/gals come up w/ a new liberal complaint to knock the cop. People have no idea what the government and appointed officials are doing to the police departments in our nation. We have the same issue in my town as our son does in another state. Think military; same being done to the police. You need strong police chiefs; not these new people they are bringing in now/ skipping over 15 yr vets for a 5 year vet. It's crazy. No, wait..it's liberalism.

I am telling you, it is so weird to dismiss this, and blame it on some obscure video noone would have ever known about.

Its like in the military, send someone in to do a job, but tie their hands up first with politically correct crap. Affirmative action started out being not a bad thing. The rule was if 2 men, one white and one black had the SAME scores on all the tests, the job went affirmative to the black guy....based of the same test and merit...that lasted about a year, then it became color of skin not content of character as MLK said...cities have hired blacks with criminal records, and they call that affirmative action when its reverse discrimination...

Now I don't think anything matters except the color of your skin and what type of genitals you have....

Decent cops are working under nasty conditions. Women cops on the road are a joke....how many can take down a suspect that weights twice what they do....gender norming for everything including firemen...A 110 pound female can climb a latter but can she get a 200 pound man unconscious from smoke out of a burning building....she couldn't be able to help me get out of a burning building and I am only 140 (yikes) pounds....Politically correct (another way to say shut up) policy kill.

My father use to say if the cop on the beat is doing a crappy job, blame it on his commander. That's the one that lets them get away with doing illegal junk, then add the unions on top of that and its hard to get rid of dirty cops. It also hard on the good ones. They don't speak up because they may get into a situation where their lives depend on some one they know is crappy but if they report it, on the street that guy isn't going to help you if you need help. Best to shut up...I have my flame retarded suit on so speak your mind....
