Everbright madman

Now I know how it is like when people take shortcuts and depend on Google Translate to get words or sentences translated. I picked up the Mandarin text from a Kwong Wah Yit Poh report about last Friday's boorish demonstrations in George Town and pasted it into Google Translate, as I don't know Mandarin but I wanted to know what was written. To my surprise, Google Translate mucked it all up properly:

It dawns on me now how many people felt outraged to know our super-efficient government translator depended on this service to translate Teoh Beng Hock's purported "suicide note". It was so ridiculous. In the meantime, here's the full translation below of the Kwong Wah Yit Poh article, courtesy of Google Translate. If you can make head and tail out of it, please let me know because I can't!

They started in the coconut foot street parade, the police tried to stop their march, but the presence of a large number of police officers have been pushing the demonstrators to ignore the police to prevent any further forward towards progress.
In the procession on the road, they chanted "anti-violent Lim Guan Eng arbitrary" and distributed tomorrow at 9 am in Sungai Lai of a "violent anti-tyranny Lim Guan Eng" rally leaflets.

When they walk in reverse, also led to traffic chaos. With much attention to the procession, some passers-by questioned why the police do not take action?
When the procession arrived at Maybank, the police riot team has been stationed there, and warned them to disband and not across the room before the post office is located in the Everbright next line of defense. However, Abdul Ghani is still leading his men continue to move forward, to start immediately arrests the police arrested six people arrested included "Everbright madman," Abdul Ghani, "Voice of Malaysian children," Secretary Mo Xin et al.
