16. Make your former enemies pay respect.

A suspected pro-government sniper was forced to pay respect to a make-shift memorial. Eyewitnesses say he was wrestled to the ground but not beaten: @AFP @shustry He wasn't beat. I was standing right near him. He did have a pistol during one of the funerals and the people subdued him.— Johnny Semeniuk (@jsemeniuk11) February 22, 2014
