Meet the new "deep" democracy of Egypt, brought to you by the military command

From a reader:  "Morsi was brought down  because he was insufficiently 'inclusive', is that right?
[...] When one supporter hung a sign of Morsi on the barrier (surrounding Republican Guard HQ), the troops tore it down and told the crowd to stay back. A protester hung a second sign and the soldiers opened fire on the crowd, an Associated Press photographer at the scene said. Several protesters fell bloodied to the ground.
At least one had a gaping, bleeding exit wound in the back of his head. Fellow protesters carried the body into a nearby building and covered his head with a blanket, declaring him dead, according to AP Television News footage." Link
