Simply put - we want them on our side.
"Greece's largest police union has threatened to issue arrest warrants for officials from the country's European Union and International Monetary Fund lenders for demanding deeply unpopular austerity measures.
"In a letter obtained by Reuters on Friday, the Federation of Greek Police accused the officials of '...blackmail, covertly abolishing or eroding democracy and national sovereignty"
"Since you are continuing this destructive policy, we warn you that you cannot make us fight against our brothers. We refuse to stand against our parents, our brothers, our children or any citizen who protests and demands a change of policy," said the union, which represents more than two-thirds of Greek policemen.
