Interior ministry tries to blame judge for Barcelona riots

The Catalan interior minister Joan Saura tried to blame a judge, who he thought had not been fast enough to order the eviction of a building in Barcelona prior to the general strike.

Embarrassingly enough, now it turns out that the judge never actually ordered any eviction, because no one had actually asked him to.

It seems that the police actually had some evidence showing that violence was being planned by the occupants of the building, which did turn out to be correct.

But then, since the police ended up acting without the judges approval anyway, why the police chose to wait until Wednesday?
