Anti-capitalist battles injure 15 police in Frankfurt
By Edward Taylor | Reuters – 2 hrs 23 mins ago

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - At least 15 German police officers were injured, one seriously, during rioting that lasted into Sunday morning, following an anti-capitalist protest in Frankfurt, police said.

Demonstrators threw paint bombs at the European Central Bank and attacked emergency vehicles on Saturday in violence which escalated after police tried to arrest several protesters in the heart of Germany's financial capital.

Battles stretched through the night and one officer was taken to intensive care after being singled out by a handful of demonstrators. Officers who went to his aid were met with massive violence, police said.

Saturday's clashes mark one of the first significant outbreaks of violence in Germany connected to recent anti-capitalist demonstrations inspired by the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement.

These are pro-Totalitarian protesters. They want a powerful central state so that they can achieve Strength through Joy. Perhaps no one has informed them that Arbeit Macht Frei.

I really like Germany and have some German ancestry mixed into the genetic pot myself, but just from talking to various Germans they can be some of the world's most unique thinkers. There is a wonderful broken clock thing going on with a few of them everything runs just fine but.... Then again, I find most hard Socialists from anywhere share a little of that ability to skip over obvious logic once they get an idea into their head.

Are they not a month early? Riots in Germany (well, Berlin and Hamburg at least) are traditionally on the 1st of May (int’l *workers* day, ironically).
