Cops, who should uphold the law, stand nearby and let this happen.
guess what there were protests as usual....what i mean is they are meeting to try to solve things...filling the street shoutiing in vain is just not right
Structural Adjustment Policies are economic policies which countries must follow in order to qualify for new World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) loans and help them make debt repayments on the older debts owed to commercial banks, governments and the World Bank. Although SAPs are designed for individual countries but have common guiding principles and features which include export-led growth; privatisation and liberalisation; and the efficiency of the free market.
SAPs often result in deep cuts in programmes like education, health and social care...
By devaluing the currency and simultaneously removing price controls, the immediate effect of a SAP is.. that riots are a frequent result. www.whirledbank.org...

Someone stated this video was faked. Not sure if it is or not, but those aren't regular police tactics.
Second video: Are those cops spartans from the Halo Series?

CX - Interesting perspective you have there coming from the Thin Blue Line. Do you ever have to come face to face with the question - are these 'troublemakers' and 'ring-leaders' actually doing the right thing?
Should they be supported in making trouble, and causing riots and disturbances? I know that the UK police force receives a lot of subliminial training, basically hardening them to public disturbance. The problem with this is that it innures the sense of 'reality' and 'compassion' that UK officers are supposed to provide in good measure in their work.
Being a regular on this board, how do you co-habit your conspiratorial theory personality with your Police Officer mentality? Surely the two are mutually exclusive?
Finally, how on earth do you justify the 'rush' tactic you describe? That isn't fair or right in any circumstance. That's the fundamental problem with policing public disturbances, our boys (and girls) in blue have got it all wrong. These days they hit and arrest first, ask questions later. That's wrong on every level.

The first kid in the video was a UI (undercover informant) who needed to be extracted from the location so they do this to make it look legit and to save the credebility of the informant.
The second video the kid was arrested probally based on info obtained from the informant and led off to be processed, no real big conspiracy here guys.
