Did the police give the protesters enough rope ?

Last night the TV news predicted that a possible high profile target for protesters in London would be the RBS building near the Bank of England.

So what happens today ? Protesters get to the RBS building, attack it, break in to it and attempt to set fire to it and there was not a single policeman inside the building in case of such an attack ?

How can the TV news predict something but the police not anticipate it ?

It looks to me that the powers that be were willing to let the protests to get out of hand in order to vilify all the protesters.

One might also question why RBS, having thought to move staff to a different branch for the day, didn't find the time to board up their windows. After all, many other, less obvious targets in the area did.

It's enough to get the conspiracy theorist in me terribly worked up...

Many Conservative and Libertarian Americans Agree With the G20 Protests.

While most of the London and European protesters are from the far left, many working Americans feel the same about Washington’s excessive bailouts for Wall Street and the banking establishment. Washington has bailed out the banks, Wall Street & their Washington special interests and much of the cost is added to the national debt to by paid by this and future generations while real estate and investments continue to fall.

Find out how a growing repudiate the debt movement could stop Washington’s deficits, the exploding national debt and end the bailouts.
