rioters peaceful protesters in Ferguson have proposed new rules for police response to their burning and looting peaceful protesting. Here’s some funny ones:
“2 Channels of communication will be established so that situations can be de-escalated if necessary.”
Or, how about, no riot no escalation?
7 Police will wear only the attire minimally required for their safety. Specialized riot gear will be avoided except as a last resort.
How about, ‘protesters will not endanger the safety of officers or citizens?’
11 Safe houses shall be considered sacred ground and only entered by police when called upon or if extremely necessary.
“Base! Can’t get me here!”
14 Strategically, police commanders will allow protesters to take and occupy larger and more disruptive spaces than would normally be tolerated, and will allow occupation of those spaces for longer periods of time than would normally be tolerated.
There’s 19 total and they’re mostly asking for the cops to babysit the rioters rather than pimp slap em. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out to be fake, but who knows.
