Victims of Gandhi: peaceful provocations!

Female protester pictured kissing policeman accused of sexual assault - Telegraph:

The story goes on to note that the woman's intentions were to provoke an incident by violating the man's dignity, though I am not sure that sexual assault is the most accurate way to describe it:
"No peace message," she wrote on Facebook. "I would hang all these disgusting pigs upside down."
Oh well, another "emblematic image of peace," bites the dust.

Of course, I blame Gandhi. He it was who wrote the modern grammar of protest, which allows the "peaceful" side to win political victory by provoking a tactical loss.
