Translation of accounts from Greek indymedia

A fed up riot cop threw his baton, helmet and shield away, in the middle of the riots today. When his 'comrades' realized, they pulled him back and started to "restrain" or "beat" him, according to accounts, before the unit beat a quick retreat to the parliament building.
He yelled "Go fuck all of you, I'm leaving!", then he dumped his equipment and started moving towards the crowd of protesters. His riot cop 'comrades' possibly lifted him into the air, and with pushing and shoving dragged him back, with gear.

Clearly some 'attack dogs' are fed up at not being paid ANYTHING, let alone a decent wage, while the wealthy Greek kmasters enjoy lovely London town.
