Ethem Sarisuluk shot from head by police with real bullet , died. Government said "Rock hit police's hand , he was trying to shoot to air to disperse the crowd.". Police is free now. Governor of Istanbul said "There will be no police intervene to Gezi Park" in a live TV broadcast , 10 hours later police clashed down the Gezi Park , charging to protestors who were having a picnic , running to them and yelling "Allah Allah Allah!" . A common warcry when Turkish army charging to enemies.

What Erdogan needs is a "foreign agents" law. That would give him the power to crack down on them.

AA (Anadolu Agency) and some media which is governed by AKP Government used those edited photos (Photoshop) from the AKP meeting to support government on it's fascist rule, you can see the actual images from the AKP meeting on internet I can't write links to them here as they and other proofs against AKP Government are removed from internet, further more that area in Turkey even fully packed with people can only hold maximum 300.000 people not 1 million they edit pictures so crowd looks bigger this is the tricks of a dictatorial and fascist rule.
