EVEN WHEN WE DISGRACED OURSELVES BY GOING TO BERLIN...:

Torch Guards Took Part In Tibet Crackdown (RICHARD SPENCER, 4/09/08, The Daily Telegraph)

The Chinese guards of the Olympic flame who fended off protesters in Europe are members of the paramilitary units that crushed dissent in Tibet, a Hong Kong newspaper said yesterday. Officially described as "volunteers" by Beijing, the 30 guards were recruited from specialist squads in the People's Armed Police, a 1 million strong force dedicated to maintaining public order. The PAP has moved into Tibet and Tibetan-settled areas since the protests against Chinese rule began last month.

...we didn't let the SS patrol our streets.
