Egyptian police have broken up a pro-reform protest at the Judges' Syndicate in Cairo, beating one senior judge and detaining 15 protesters.Oh yeah, that's what the police are good at: prosecuting, attacking and humiliating each and every person who dares to call for reform. Yet, when it comes to real tough work like preventing a terrorist attack on the Egyptian soil all we see is the Minister of Interior Affairs dumb face on TV assuring that they are doing their best to track down the attackers. Well, what about those who lost their lives already?? Oh yeah, let them rest in peace, the man was so busy inventing new methods for kicking the opposition's ass.
Fifty judges have been holding a sit-in at their headquarters to protest against the prosecution of two of their colleagues by the government.

Anyway, what happened to the judges is nothing new, they have attacked and beaten university professors in campus before. I was not surprised to read this:
"I told them I was a judge, a head of a court, whack, they hit me," he said. "To my surprise they took my trousers off!" BBC NewsPolice officers assaulted my own professor in campus a year ago and tore his shirt, because he parked his car where their boss used to park his car. And you know what, they got away with it!
So our dear judges, you have just joined the ranks: welcome to the club!
