: : - There would have been no justice if the cop had been put through a trial just for defending himself against some violent, crazed, "protestor." If I was a cop in a sea of madness and some green haired punk was bashing out the windows of my vehicle with a fire extenguisher you better believe he'd be begging for a bullet.
: We finally agree on something my Alberta friend. There were WTO protesters here at UBC a couple years ago. The cops got medevil on them after they tried to cross the barriers. I was all for the RCMP pepper spraying and beating the tar out of boneheads from Surrey trying to cause trouble during an otherwise peaceful demonstration.
: I think the police should be able to defend themselves whenever required.
: Also, at GM Place last year, when they cancelled the Guns n' Roses concert (crap anyway). Some losers were throwing things at the building, and rioting. The tossed barriers into the glass doors etc. The Vancouver Police came and used the spray and clubs. Then some genius broke up a concrete garbage can and started tossing chunks off the bridge and at the cops. I would have 'Glocked' him for sure.
: Anyway...people here are all over the cops for that too.
: It's stupid.
--- Yeah I was thinking the other day that Vancouver cops don't act very... lets say "Vancouverish" in their dealings with criminals. Pretty no-nonsence type stuff. I guess on the front line you really get a sence on how to deal with the criminals.
