By the time I arrived at Masjid Jamek, I expected that the crowd would have dispersed.
In fact, I think that the original protestors had left, and those that remained were merely curious onlookers.
But that didn't stop the FRU from going all out on the public.
The trucks rolled in carrying their arsenal. A siren sounded and I think that must have been the warning that the water cannons were going to be released on anyone who was close enough to take a hit.
The crowd ran upon hearing it.
For a while nothing happened. Then a group of people came out of the Putra LRT station. The look of alarm on their faces upon seeing the FRU truck was evident even from a distance.
They were given a warning by the authorities (presumably to vacate the area) and they complied with haste. :)
Those who didn't were sprayed.
That was some really potent acid they used. I'm sure it will corrode the tiles and road. Not to mention the windows and premises of outlets in that region.
