THE UNBELIEVABLE IS THAT THE RIOT COPS APPEARED AT THE FUNERAL OF ALEXIS!
Thousands of people were at the cemetary of Faliro silent in front of the dead 15 year old student.
Suddenly squads of riot police appeared in the area around the cemetary, some young people verbally attacked them and then the riot cops attacked and arrived at the gates of the cemetary using teargas and the usual chemicals!!!
The funeral is on live broadcast on some TV channelsm, even from helicopter coverage.
