aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND HERE COMES THE FACT CHECK TRAIN   
You're all thinking "What brutal police! Huehuehue"   
Or something like that   
But the exact opposite has transpired then what you're thinking   
The bartender is protecting his patrons from THE PROTESTERS    
They were going around throwing rocks, lighting fires, and other chaotic things   
The police were coming by to make sure they were ok.   
You know, like proper police?  Not every police you see at a protest automatically makes them horrible people.   
Would you people prefer if their were no police at all?   
TL:DR You're all assuming the wrong thing.   
AND NOW THE FACT TRAIN IS DEPARTING, TIME TO GO EXPLAIN WHY POKEMON CROSS BREEDING WOULD NOT WORK OUT LIKE THAT. EVER.

You dont even kow whats happening in Spain, right? The politicians is robbing us and the people goes to riots to claim what it is from them. This country is drowned in **** and the fault is of the politicians, but the citizens are paying for his fault.

You're wrong. The people in the bar are protesters, the bartender is trying to keep them from being arrested.

Always bring sources to support your your "facts" because without them it's useless :)

They are cutting the budget...mainly free handouts...
Such as they no longer have free healthcare (have to pay 30% now)
And they have to pay like $25 a year for college instead of it being free....

This is pretty much what my friend from Spain told me...

thank you, finally somebody with common sense. Not all cops beat the **** out of protesters. People should realize that before they start screaming police brutality, they should think back and check
1. Did I light any store or cars on fire?
2. Did I assault a police officer or a bystander in anyway?
3. Did I loot anything?
Because honestly I think there are some cases when there are reasons for protesters to get their ass kicked.

I watched the video (www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=UDCRgqspmyU#t=259s) and i know spanish so bascially what the video is saying is that the bartender was actually keeping his customer from getting involved with what's going on outside. so the people weren't attacking the police and vice versa. Then the bartender is yelling at the other protesters across the street not to throw objects at the police. mfw

This was on reddit earlier, and ofc OP didn't catch the whole story which was investigated (Reddit actually investiges the story behind pictures like this, in contrary to FJ who mostly just believes what they see).

There were riots outside and the police wanted to search his restaurant for hiding protestors. He refused to let them in, since he said there were only innocent people there. However the riots continued and protesters began throwing rubble at his restaurant. He begged for them to stop attacking his restaurant, and the police actually began protecting him and his restaurant. I may not be 100% right, but this somewhat sums it up (I think).

When seeing a picture like this, be a little critical before judging it, since the context could be different from the title.

I don't know whether to appreciate the facts you presented, or call you a faggot for actually browsing Reddit.

What specifically makes FJ better than reddit?
#67 to #65 - byposted (09/27/2012) [-]
The Community is respectable and there are a lot of bright comic makers who craft new and entertaining posts every day.

Whereas in Reddit they just repost Micheal Moore documentaries and gay jewish tranny anal suffocation sex videos.

Reddit is not better than FJ nor is Reddit better than FJ.

That's like comparing Zombieland and Saw IV. Two completely different things, but someone will always prefer one or the other or both.

I went to Reddit once in school since FunnyJunk was blocked off. Most of Reddit's **** was reposted in Funnyjunk.

In addition, my brother who used to be a fj user became a 9fag user and said most of the content on 9gag was reposted on fj.

we arent really all that respectable, most think we are pony loving faggots or 12. 90% of everything here is a repost or taken straight from reddit.

theres a lot more to that site than you're giving it credit for.

What are you talking about? Funnyjunk is the greatest website on God's green earth.

I just made some research:

Full story:
There was a "non-violent" protest in Spain that later (obviously) got out of control and rioters took advantage of the situation to cause damage. As usually happens in riots, police and rioters start to fight each over.

The second picture was actually taken before the first one. It is the moment when policemen are evacuating people but the bar owner doesn't want to put his clients at risk and refuses to let them go. First picture is just the policemen talking to the bar owner and his intentions. At some point a group of policemen gather close to the bar, rioters start to throw rocks at them, some hitting the door of the bar. The bar owner even yells "please don't throw rocks".

This is how the dirty Jews manipulate our viewpoints when it comes to WWII. I actually saw the cropped image when I went to a "holocaust museum" for my school.

If you look at perspective here, he is actually protecting the cowering civilians and shooting at enemy soldiers.

Sure it's all nice and dandy that he's protecting those people, but we don't know the context of what happened. Hell if you've seen the riots then you will see these scum "protestors" are destroying other peoples property, beating the **** out of people and officers.

You want to break the law, then pay the price. If any of those people were the ones who were rioting, well sorry bartender but they have to get their punishment.

Lol but ofc Funnyjunk is full of a bunch of teenage self-entitled anarchist who think rioting is cool because they've watched a few movies. Truth is, you couldn't handle the world you want. You'd be done for in less than a day.

Not me, but of course I can barely pass for normal in todays world. Anarchy is made for the insane, and I find that by the book. BUT! I think the world needs strong government, and an island solely for the "anarchists" so they do not disturb the rest of society.

Protesters: Keep giving us tons of free **** !

Government: We are completely broke as **** and without a doubt cannot afford to keep throwing money at you like drunk dudes when they see a stripper.

Protesters: **** YOU, WE'RE GOING TO BREAK OTHER CITIZEN'S PROPERTY TO SHOW YOU HOW MAD WE ARE!

It's called civil unrest moran. It usually leads to a le strong leader XDDDD rising amongst the ashes of dead people, to lead their countrymen once more to greatness.

What I said is fundamentally true. What we are seeing in Spain is common in crumbling societies. When poverty is widespread and the nation is in decline, it paves the way for an authoritarian government.

Democracies always fail.

Great stuff, great stuff. Except for the fact that Spain isn't a democracy, it's a constitutional monarchy. In fact, no country in the world is a pure democracy, so your argument is null and void.

Thanks for the obvious fact, ******** . Do you have anything else to contribute.
#97 to #94 - willysbilly ONLINE (09/27/2012) [-]
As lord of **** , I decree that the fact democracies always failing is idiocy because it refers to a system of government that doesn't exist in practice. A democracy is very different from a constitutional monarchy, so its pointless for you to draw connections between the two. That's like me saying Norway is going under because Communism always fails.

Constitutional Monarchies are on the same boat as Representative Democracies, like the US. They will both crumble
