The sixty year old man I referred to being shown on the news being beaten was this man, who turns out to have been a TSU supporter. I feel a lot less conflicted now. The Taiwan News' top article states that the pan-Greens did initiate things by throwing eggs, but the Blues appeared to have an organized phalanx of gangsters who marauded at will, while the police watched: "At around 10:42 a.m., a few hooligans attacked an old pan-Green supporter in his sixties with a Nunchaku, the martial arts weapon.....others were also attacked by the group of thugs, and in all, nine people were hospitalized after the demonstration ended." Much less conflicted.
