calm and peaceful…

Posted on: April 17, 2008

Very creative interpretation of the word peaceful …

Some 15,000 police and commandos have locked down the heart of the city where the torch relay will be held.

A least 50 Tibetans were detained by police at a rally in front of the Chinese embassy in Delhi on Wednesday.

The torch was then driven along a route into the city lined with hundreds of police.

The authorities have closed many main roads in central Delhi in the run-up to the ceremony, creating huge traffic jams.

Police have ordered workers in government offices overlooking the route of the torch not to look out of their windows to witness the ceremony because of the perceived security threat.

Police patrols have been issued with blankets and fire extinguishers to prevent protesters from setting themselves on fire.

“We have taken every precaution to ensure the event remains peaceful,” Junior Home Minister Shakeel Ahmed told reporters.

How is the above described scenario, in any possible interpretation of the term, peaceful?

Running around with this little torch sure is starting to seem costly to me…
