And Haylur just happened to be there...

Apparently there was an incident in Talin at an LTP rally where a heckler got into a skirmish with a few of the rally participants.

Haylur, the main arm of the government propaganda machine, seems to be the only media outlet to have the video of the incident. The Haylur item is available at the bottom of this article.

I'm seriously thinking about writing a 'How to...' blog entry about spotting your friendly neighborhood secret service video-grapher, various kinds of agent provocateurs and other types of unpleasant folk.

UPDATE: Jirayr Sefilian and Vardan Malkhasian, war heroes and currently political prisoners in Armenia, have distributed a leaflet where they explain who the heckler is. He is indeed a participant of the Arcakh war and a hero. But now he is an informant for the Armenian KGB after a short stint in jail for illegal possession of a firearm.

Kind of ironic. A public meeting, H1 actually cover the event, Ter-Petrossian supporters get violent and beat a man rather than escort him away, and still you consider that it is the media for documenting a criminal case of assault that's at fault. Well, that's politics, I suppose.

One should be stupid or looking for a beating to do such a thing among so many people who are there to show their support and are emotional.
It is like going to Tsitsernakaberd on April 24 and justify the genocide aloud.
