Tolerate violence at your peril

Re: "Individuals attacking the protesters are the violent ones", Letters, April 6.

I am absolutely fed up with A Johnsen distorting everything that I write! I will not waste my time repeating the many examples of violence perpetrated by anti-government protester that I’ve given, which had nothing to do with self-defence. He has never been able to disprove a single fact or statistic that I’ve presented and thus does the only thing he knows how to do – launch personal attacks.
He refers to those who dare to disagree with him as “pious”, and, as I’ve noted before, several of my critics have requested that my letters be banned from the Letters section. But if these people are such champions of democracy and reform, shouldn’t they have more respect for other people’s opinions? Is this a preview of what’s in store for the country should people with their mentality ever get into power?
