But Getty Images has another photo of our peaceful protesting Santa:

UPDATE: Even though the second photo says 2009, I believe that is a typo. The photo EXIF information shows it is copyright 2010 and these protests are always on Fridays, and December 24 2009 was a Thursday. The downloaded picture says it was taken December 24, 2010.
