I would have liked the police to have used baton rounds after the first day, no point going in soft.

It started off as a peaceful protest but a small minority decided they wanted to do something better. I would throw them all in jail for as long as possible.
That's what they reckon. He didn't fire, but may have reached for the pistol thus giving the Police justification to open fire.

Now how are Console-Hater and his gang going to talk to each other?
This is a disaster!

Because of one cop's actions, you condemn all other cops? By that logic, because the hijackers on 9/11 were Muslim, you hate all Muslims? Because Hitler was German, you hate all Germans? Because the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, you hate all Asians?

You cannot let one person's actions speak for a whole group of people. This is by far the most ignorant post I've seen on this thread yet. As far fetched your story sounds, I'm sure you are just trying to troll.

These rioters deserve the same justice as the cops that may or may not have shot the guy. We may never know the truth to that, but the riots are REAL. Other people's lives are being ruined on what seems to be a rather sensationalized story. I'm sorry, but these non-peaceful rioters don't deserve their so-called "freedom of speech". They lost that the minute they threw the first brick.

He may not have fired it like 98uk said but you DO NOT reach for it or worse start pointing it at someone with armed police present, its always asking for trouble.

It would bet better to wait until the full detailed report of the incident comes out before saying that the police was in the wrong. Im not a fan of the police as the few times ive needed them they havent done anything but at the present moment i would help them out as much as i can.

Hmm, I read that not only did he have the gun but in the shots that were exchanged between him and police (yes, I read that he was firing upon them) that he wounded one of the officers. Also that they had even dug one of his bullets out of a police radio after it was over....so did he fire on the police or not?

Is there a riot yet to occur in the name of the officer who was wounded (if one was actually wounded) as well? Or do only the criminals get riots?

It's been confirmed that was one of the officers own bullets

But yeah... Knowing the type of person he is, if he seen two guys creeping up on his taxi with MP5's I'm sure he would of reached for the gun..

You read wrong. The bullet in the radio was police issue and the gun found at the scene had not been fired.

Two rounds were fired, both by a policeman's mp5, one hit him in the chest and one in the arm(which ended up lodged in a police radio.).

I'm more curious as to why they didn't have non lethal rounds...

I think they were carrying REAL mp5's, not the Airsoft versions Just kidding.

I'm not even sure if there are rubber bullet version for an MP5. That's a lot of punch for a rubber bullet.

With that said there will always be a bad seed and this shouldn't affect anyone's judgement about the whole Police force.
