Looks like our newly clean-shaven friend has had yet another run-in with the law. Thanks to Turt Hell at Creative Ireland for finding this little gem!

I've got more pictures of this particular incident following the break. As a bonus, check out the other Plus-Sized Protester I ran across in this latest batch.

Check out the size of this behemoth. I've got plenty of pictures of him from older protests, too, but he doesn't quite have the sheer camera appeal of his scrawnier compatriot.

Athere so few of these guys that he is the only one getting photographed?

It looks like the one Indian soldier is laughing at him. He's probably had a few run-ins with good ol' Rage Boy before.

James,

His group probably, in all seriousness, consists of fewer than 30 angry men. But, to answer your question, he's not the [i]only[/i] one there, but he [i]is[/i] the person there with the most spunk. And, based on my observations so far, photojournalists [i]live[/i] for "spunk."

Regards,
Brian

I don't have a problem with someone protesting human rights violations. Are these protests used as a ploy to entice a separatist desire among the general population? That the protestors are angry and look unhinged is no different then American protestors.

Here is a flashback to our own freakish frat boy protestors quoted from the Village Voice in December 2000,

"The "bourgeois riot" celebrated by Wall Street Journal columnist Paul Gigot helped stop the announced manual recount of the 10,750 undervote in Miami-Dade County. Instigated by an order from New York congressman John Sweeney to "shut it down," dozens of screaming GOP demonstrators pounded on doors and a picture window at elections headquarters. The canvassing board, which had already found a net Al Gore gain of 168 votes, reversed a decision it had made a couple of hours earlier to begin a tally of the undervote.

The mob gang-rushed a local Democrat carrying a blank sample ballot. They threatened that a thousand Cubans were on their way to the headquarters to stop the count. Several people were "trampled, punched or kicked," according to The New York Times. The canvassing board chair at first conceded that mob pressures played a role in the shutdown—which cost Gore the 168 votes as well—but later reversed his position.
