Hoping for a complete disaster, it's fitting somehow.

The mean lady is dead, she can't hurt you any more.  Let the country have it's moment of pomp and circumstance.  Going out, acting like children isn't going to do anything but annoy the people who are there for the funeral, and give the cops a chance to smack you around.  It won't change anything, she's been out of power for over 20 years, and will just make you look like douchebags.  Why not act like the bigger, more mature people, and sit this one out?  You kind of remind me of the Westboro Baptist Church people, only on a larger scale.

Water Cannons and rubber bullets? So all they need is for the police to murder some protestors and it'll pretty much be like she never left office

I don't guess it's a surprise anymore around here but the article says the exact opposite of ye olde fark headline up there.

"The police have said they are determined to protect the rights of those wishing to pay their respects, as well as those of the people wishing to hold parties but officers ruled out the use of rubber bullets and water cannon in the event of any trouble. "

I'm going to be there, and like many others, I shall turn my back on her when she passes by, in the exact same way she turned her back on all those whose lives were ruined by her decisions, regardless of whether they were right or wrong, leaving them to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives by themselves.
