Danino: Social protesters pushed chaos, not valid protest

June 26, 2012 14:02

Police Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino called Saturday night's altercation between police and social protesters in Tel Aviv an event bent on vandalism, violating the law and "chaos," not a valid protest.

Danino made his comments at a conference hosted by the Finance Ministry in Jerusalem on Tuesday.

The police inspector-general denied that the police has used excessive force and noted that the police are there to secure protesters safety as they did all last summer.

He said that social protests cannot turn into chaos and destroying other people's property or trying to push around law enforcement officials.

At the same time, Danino suggested that videos taken of the altercation suggested that some specific police actions might have been imprudent, pointing out that the police will review all of their actions that night as they always do.
