Hmmm. Nothing new there.
I clearly remember the "kraker rellen" ( squatter-riots) of the 80's in the Netherlands. I was in the Military Police in those days, as a
conscript, mind You, and word was that we should be careful as to whó we hit when charging.
Why? Because there were "officers amongst the rioters" .....'S cuse me? Why?. Heh, in the end we hit every rioter as hard as we could with our
riot bats. Yup.. I succeeded to knock one undercover-cop down, but, as we were military, they didn't file charges. Too scared of us I guess.
Why did we hit so hard? Well, because éven those "undercover" were swept along in the enthusiasm, and started throwing bricks, allthewhile rioters
were dropping sidewalk tiles on our heads from the roofs.. Great fun&exitement (nót.. Do nót pee-off military police in riot gear.)
Onthe other hand, éven when people started to fire slingshots with ball-bearing at us, splintering our shields, none of us pulled their guns, while
the cops immediately started waving their walthers.. Pussies!
