MOLOTOV know its not right to throw one at riot police, but in my country they have been proven to work against riot police and sometime make people
actually be heard. I'm not telling people to go ahead and do this.
you can see how the riot police runs away as soon as they see those things fly.
in the first video, pretty funny, the protesters use molotovs, i guessed they worked cause they get a nice settlement for their property lol
I think throwing a fire bomb at a cop who is just doing his job is reprehensible. May be in a country like in Iran or N. Korea where the government
persecutes people for expressing their thoughts, it might be more acceptable.
In the US - at least for now - people just call each other names when they disagree about political issues.
Just doing his job? You must be joking. If they are doing their job with the attitude that they are their to serve and protect the *public*, then
yes, it would be ill-advised to hinder the success of their task. But if they are there to prevent the public from voicing their opinions to their
leaders at an inconvenient moment (like one of these horrendously expensive events - why to the "leaders" need this sort of thing anyway?!) then no,
they are doing as they are told and as such are a menace to the public. Do you not yet see that you have not a shred of freedom anymore? We have
more freedom over here in Europe. I can tell you this with absolute certainty because I spent the first 23 years of my life in the US and the
successive 23 years in Europe. I do know of what I speak. Our freedom is better here - especially now.
Really, okay lets try an experiment. Drive to Germany and deny the Holocaust in a public place near German Law enforcement officials.
Although I think Holocaust deniers are racist crazy people, even they have the right to freedom of speech in the Good ol' USA. You end up in jail in
Germany and a bunch of other European countries.
Experiment number two. Send a female family member of your into a french government building or school while wearing a Muslim head scarf.
In the Good ol' USA, people are free to express their religion by wearing religious clothing and symbols, even when that religion is particular
unpopular with the majority of the citizenry. Not the case in France, and other European countries.
You can keep your European freedoms. I like my American freedoms better.
