Minding your Manners

by Robyn on June 23, 2010 in Uncategorised

There was a bit of a ruckus on Victoria Street yesterday, when anti-Manners Street, pro-Manners Mall protester Benjamin Easton started smashing up the road with a sledgehammer.

The incident drew a large crowd, who watched as the police arrested him. One of the bystanders – a DomPost reporter – filmed the incident, and the video is available to view on Stuff.

Watch as policemen with shields and a policemanette with a Taser do their best to disarm the self-described "political busker".

The busification of Manners Mall is proving to be good entertainment value.
