Apparently, police are terrible the whole world over. While 'revolutionaries' torched nearly all of the police stations in Cairo, the Egyptian army moved in to protect infrastructure and historic locations; "There were no clashes reported between protesters and the military at all, and many in the crowds showered soldiers with affection."
It says a lot about a countries police force when people in the midst of a revolution would rather have their army there instead of their police. I wonder who we'd rather have around in such a situation?
