Just in case you missed my point earlier, or just chose to ignore it!


I only read it after posting the reply above, and felt what i'd just posted covered a lot of the ground. No disrespect intended!

The thing is is that you are still talking about a minority (for wont of a better word) in the police


Are you really saying that it's only a minority who obey an order to attack a crowd? That I've just been unlucky in seeing total compliance whereas in some other places the majority of coppers refused?

You are generalising


Indeed. When people behave with unanimity that's a fair thing to do.

horrified by the actions of a few of their colleagues or the decision of one misguided officer


to restate - I am not talking about a few officers who behave badly or a one-off bad decision. I'm talking about a repeated strategy and universal compliance with it.

To be perfectly honest I think you're generalisations are quite misguided and irresponsible, you really do come across as anti police.

an important point which you've ignored is that no one knows who starts the violence as both sides will inevitably blame the other side.


Explain how this applies to instances where the only violence is from the police.
