Arrest Warrants Issued for Protestors

I hope they get serious about this, I'm tired of the demonstrations already.

South Korean prosecutors sought arrest warrants for dozens of anti-U.S. activists Saturday following violent protests against plans to relocate American military bases, as thousands of riot police braced for a potential fresh clash, officials said.

More than 520 demonstrators, mostly student and labor activists, have been detained in two days of bloody clashes with police at a new U.S. military base site in Pyeongtaek, about 65 kilometers (40 miles) south of Seoul. Over 200 protesters and police were injured, some of them seriously.
These protests have become far too violent to allow to continue.

...TV footage showed stick-brandishing demonstrators cutting wire fences and beating unarmed troops guarding the site.
That is just wrong. Time to round them up.

Funny that I found this perusing a Japanese news site.
