Initial Analysis of UAV Video from November 24, 2012

Another video has surfaced of the initial conflict between protesters and the Royal Thai Police on the morning of November 24, 2012. This video can be viewed at the following link:

This video, like the CCTV camera video, appears to show the protesters beginning the confrontation by throwing a tear gas canister at the Royal Thai Police. This happens at approximately 1:50 into the video. Again this video, like the CCTV camera video, is very misleading.
