Bosnian Serb leader and Serb Presidency member Milorad Dodik said the government and the police in Serbia were acting too fair during the recent protests in Serbia’s major cities and that they should have responded in a more rough way.
Speaking to Belgrade daily Politika, Dodik said the response of the police during the protests should have been more rough.
“American police shoot a man if they suspect he’s a threat,” said Dodik.
“Watching the demolitions and violence in Belgrade, I think both the government and the police were acting too fair,” he added.
Serbia's police were acting brutally during several days of the civil anti-government protests in Belgrade, and some other places. N1 TV crews and demonstrators filmed that brutality in many cases.
