There's more demonstrator, press freedom in Mexico City than in Ferguson, Missouri - even dealing with anarchists

MGR's opinion -

Credentialed photographer Scott Olson, of the world famous Getty Agency, was arrested yesterday for "standing in the wrong place." More excellent coverage of the militarization of American domestic police and last night's renewed violence in the St. Louis suburb is available in today's Huffington Post.

Violent anarchists attacked Mexico City police on Oct. 2, 2013. All of it was recorded by local and national press. What did security forces do? Assumed purely defensive positions, never retaliating even in the face of some brutal assaults accompanied by Molotov cocktails.
