Arrests after Sydney anti-Muslim film protest

Two teenagers have been charged over violent protests in Sydney, as police brace for more potential violence this weekend over controversial anti-Islam film, Innocence of Muslims.
The pair, aged 16 and 19, was arrested yesterday and is accused of numerous offences, including assaulting police during demonstrations last Saturday.
Superintendent Mark Walton says police can't say how many more people will be arrested because investigations are ongoing.
“There’s a lot of product, and I have 20 detectives that are working through that product identifying offences and working through things like search warrants and pulling that evidence together,” he says. “It’s not a simple process.”

@ JOHN I agree with you. Muslims hate Western Style countries that are democratic and have free speech. Two aspects missing in most Islamic Countries. When Islam produces most of the worlds refugees - why dont they just emigrate to the nearest Muslim country where they would be welcomed by other loving Muslim people. NO they all want to go to a western style country like Australia, Britain and New Zealand. It doesnt make any sense.
You then have the Leader of Iran building up his nuclear arsenal and he has stated clearly that Iran wants to destroy Israel and remove it from the map. The silence from the Muslim world all over tells us that Free Speech is Ok if it is a Muslim leader preaching genocide. Hypocracy is the term I think that they have respectfully earned.

Most of those protesting were the Lebanese Crowd in Sydney who are always looking for a fight. Most were born there.

When they are lucky enough to get into a wonderful country like Aussie, why cant these people leave all this crazy stuff behind. Free countries need to look at immigration policies if they want to stop these nutters.
