New video: destruction of property

Video uploaded today shows possible evidence of security forces striking at the personal property of citizens believed to be opposition supporters. Air conditioners are being wrecked as a warning to the opposition, which I have to admit, is a pretty effective tactic.

The man in the video told the person filming

“They were police. They had Arabic accents. They broke this entry way. This door is locked from inside. They broke the door, as a matter of fact they took the door off its hinges. They went up to the roof where the air conditioners and everything are and threw them down.” When the cameraman asks “Did you contact the police?” the man replies: “Those who came had police uniforms on. What police is there to call?”

It reminds me of Joseph Heller's Catch-22, where a man is being arrested by police while being thrown into the back of a police van, all the while yelling, "Help! Police!"

Maybe it's not a call for help, maybe it's a warning to others.
