Well if you have a better advice for the police that is more effective I would like to hear.
Something quick and effective that will not damage the car ?


The solution is not to damage people's property. If they're scared for their lives get a different friggin job, it comes with the territory.


So you do not have any solution, your idea of doing nothing would put the officer and his teammates in potential danger.
They are not more scared then any normal human would be in this situation.
This is standard tactic in a situation like this, I seen it been used here in Denmark to.
And no it does not "come with the territory" to put yourself in potential danger to save a couple of tires.

They actually denied it until the video evidence was given to them because they are property-destroying lying scumbags. Source

The solution to not destroying people's property is to not destroy people's property.

So does that mean protesters have the right to slash police tires?

I mean so far it's only been the police, and people opposed to the protests, that have used cars as weapons.

After watching videos with cars being burned, windows being broken and all other kinds of property damage the last thing I’m going to be upset about is the cops immobilizing a few cars by slashing tires.


I also hope the tire replacement money comes from the coffers that the state if defunding.

I.E., the people. Once again the taxpayer foots the bill for poor government policy.

There are countless examples of the police raiding the wrong house, destroying everything, and then refusing to pay for damages.

Why do you think this will be any different?

Why is the breaking news ?

This is standard tactic in a hot situation where cars can be used as potential weapons against your teammates.
They do not want to risk someone with a key jumps into the car when they walked by and runs into them from behind.
Clamps... oh please, in a situation like this.. they are not going to carry clamps around and waste time on that.
This is normal and this is quick and effective, and the car owner will get refunded when that party is over.


If its sop that means these cops chose to use a knive over the proper tool to cause damage

Thats even worse

Why not?
Who pays to repair all the riot damage?

Not really, they have just not addressed it yet since the protest is ongoing.

The buildings can be used for cover when throwing things and even shooting. Should the police bulldoze them down?

No, they did address it after the videos became public, the admitted they did it after initially lying and saying they didn't.

I just did, because these lying scumbags are scumbags. Sue me.

Cannot see how that is relevant to the topic.
This is a specific situation where they used the tools they had.
And I not heard of countless examples of police raiding wrong houses and destroying EVERYTHING and refuse to pay for damages.

Yeah, sure, let's let the police damage stuff because lawless animals are doing the same. Awesome logic there.

Everybody hates the cops until they need one.
My neighbor is a cop.
I've coached softball with some cops.

Scumbag is definitely not fair.

Why is it so difficult for police to carry wheel clamps in situations like these?? Are they to difficult for the police use?
Some people are talking about potential danger, I always thought an officers job is to run towards the danger if needed to, not to cause it or act like "rioters" and cause damage just for the hell of it, and surely during training and preparedness for situations like this some bright spark has thought of situations just like this??

Perfect logic.
Low cost damage to prevent higher cost damage.
