stun bombs were thrown by police. I'd say this is "democrat revashism",
because thousands of protesters completely ignored "their leaders'" orders
and went to support the group of demonstrators, which was being cut off by
special police forces, while "the leaders" were expecting everybody to stay
at city parliament.

Pushed back??? How about chased, beaten and trampled?

actually I heard that it started after a cop patrol pulled over a car full
of football fans and started to arrest them. The fans fought back and
people around them joined - cops barely managed to get out in one piece
(the exterior of their jeep was completely smashed). After that, cops
charged the crowd at Slavija.

Eyewitness from first battle line says that nobody threw rocks until cops
started charging the first time. I believe that. And I believe that B2-92
can kiss my ass. 

What B2-92 forgot to say was that cops got their asses kicked later that
evening :):):))):):))):))));)
