This is what reporters call peaceful.

Friends,

A man runs as riot police use tear gas and pressurized water to quash a peaceful demonstration by hundreds of people staging a sit-in protest to try and prevent the demolition of trees at an Istanbul park, Turkey, Friday, May 31, 2013. (AP Photo)

Huffington Post and AP report this man is peaceful.

Does anyone else see the rock he is getting ready to throw in his left hand?

Or it just me?

Personally, I think the rioters have some valid complaints. Almost everyone can complain about big, bad government.

But, a lot of these demonstrators are not people I would invite into my house for dinner.

Does anyone else think describing violent protesters as peaceful demonstrators a little bit like a big lie?

Ghost.
