Here's the full story behind the making of this photo.

Once the opportunity has arrived, the violent protester will quickly retreat and "innocent protesters" (dressed as first aids, reporters or civilians) will be in position.

The innocent protester will jump out at the middle of the conflict and force the police to make mistakes. Also pro-protesters first aids will be in position to help the victim for good public image.

STEP 5: Find a good camera angle

Reporters will be ready to capture the incident in multiple angles. Just pick the clip that makes the polices look most crazy .

STEP 6: Well done! Now Share video in social media!

Now share it on social media with an emotional tile, than watch everyone condemn the police!
