London, England (AHN) - A university professor, who is organizing a protest at next week's G20 summit, was suspended from his job after warning bankers "could be hanging from lampposts."

University of East London professor of anthropology Chris Knight said during an interview with the BBC that demonstrators would be "hanging a lot of people" during the summit.

You'll always find an idiot to interview.

UEL is not the most prestigious centre of learning but they deserve better.

Yet he is a symptom, showing how easy it is to gin up the mob mentality.

The lapdog media have successfully diverted the anger at the real problem people, i.e. congressmen like frank and dodd, to small players, many of whom have done nothing wrong.

See Daniel Hannan's rant vs. Gordon Brown for another perspective.
