UPDATE: Egyptian Protests- Sunday

I woke up this morning to the most astounding news.
Friends and family in Cairo have told me that the looting that has been taking place have not been prisoners, but by the police.

The police seemed to have disappeared from the streets yesterday, with the protestors worrying what they were up to next. No one could have imagined the new low that the regime would take by encouraging the police to loot homes across the country.

There have been many cases of neighborhood watches that have caught police redhanded stealing from homes.

I guess if they can't rule people with terror, they've decided to take everyone down with them.

Not only have the police been attacking people in they're homes, they've taken it upon themselves to release thousands of prisoners from prisons near Cairo.

I worry that since many people are afraid of their houses being looted they won't show up today for protests. I hope that's not the case.
We'll see what happens.
