yes of course but a policeman/soldier is there to maintain law and order which makes thugs in authority far more sinister than the average street thug. If the drivers are acting on behalf of the government then it is even more shameful and horrific. I haven't seen or heard anything about this on the news in UK.
I've just got myself a digital TV, out of necessity because my analogue TV is far too old to be upgraded to digital come June when the switchover takes place here.
If you've got digital and want to get an in-depth picture about what's going on in Egypt, go to the Al Jazeera English channel (89 on my set). It broadcasts from 6 pm to 11pm every day. In addition to the regular news reports, you get videos and text messages sent in by local people.
