Red Berets vs Children of the Authorities....

Published in Aravot, Sept. 2, 2008 (and broadcast on Radio Liberty) (photo in Aravot):

Around 10:30pm last Saturday a group of 10-15 young men sitting at the open air Atlantic café in the opera square area in a drunken state, began arguing and cussing in a loud voice. A few of the red berets on duty around the opera square area approached a few of them in an attempt to bring them to order. But one of the young men hit one of the red berets with a bottle and another red beret was hit in the face (in photo above.) The police got involved and the young men into custody. According to the information Aravot received, one of the young men was the son of a high-ranking official. The two red berets that were beaten were taken to the hospital to receive emergency aid.

Haykakan Zhamanak (sept. 2, 2008 and quoted by Radio Liberty) adds that the young men were mostly the sons of judges. The young men didn’t appreciate the fact that the police objected to their behavior. The young men were released very soon. Haykakan Zhamanak further comments that it was the same red berets who, a few days ago had so ‘courageously’ attacked the posters of the political prisoners and torn them up.
