Stop with the once again thing and show me actual footage of the peaceful protesters, acting peacefully and being attacked by the Police.

So there was a line that they crossed and the Police were there to prevent people crossing it. It sounds like common sense to me.

riight.... keep the sheeple in line...


That's too simplistic. Every society needs a Police force to maintain order or you'll have gangs of thieves and violent people harming the rest of society.

I find that a lot of societies problems come from the origins of society....... Karma is a bitch.

If a country was built upon theft and murder, one can and SHOULD expect some sort of mirror....

A charge is a violent action, there is no possibility of controlling or predicting how it will end for the attacker or the defender. This is why when the police is really intending a charge they use cavalry...

If you see someone confronting you and charging you, do you really turn your back on him. The police is trained (or should be, that video is very strange as they were not even well equipped) to act like a roman flange, forming a shield wall and retreating slowly, even going full testudo formation if under missile attacks, normally the last line will cover with rubber bullets or in case of an overwhelming aggressive change, live rounds.

One should keep in mind the Monday, May 4, 1970 Kent State shootings also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre (Kent State University is in the U.S. city of Kent, Ohio). I understand that the weapons mentality is different in Europe but it still is a possibility even if the police has a greater level of certainty that the crowd is not armed...


Eyewitness accounts
Two men who were present related what they saw.

Unidentified speaker 1: "Suddenly, they turned around, got on their knees, as if they were ordered to, they did it all together, aimed. And personally, I was standing there saying, they're not going to shoot, they can't do that. If they are going to shoot, it's going to be blank."
Unidentified speaker 2: "The shots were definitely coming my way, because when a bullet passes your head, it makes a crack. I hit the ground behind the curve, looking over. I saw a student hit. He stumbled and fell, to where he was running towards the car. Another student tried to pull him behind the car, bullets were coming through the windows of the car."
As this student fell behind the car, I saw another student go down, next to the curb, on the far side of the automobile, maybe 25 or 30 yards from where I was lying. It was maybe 25, 30, 35 seconds of sporadic firing.
"The firing stopped. I lay there maybe 10 or 15 seconds. I got up, I saw four or five students lying around the lot. By this time, it was like mass hysteria. Students were crying, they were screaming for ambulances. I heard some girl screaming, 'They didn't have blank, they didn't have blank,' no, they didn't."

Killed (and approximate distance from the National Guard):
*Jeffrey Glenn Miller; age 20; 265 ft (81 m) shot through the mouth; killed instantly
*Allison B. Krause; age 19; 343 ft (105 m) fatal left chest wound; died later that day
*William Knox Schroeder; age 19; 382 ft (116 m) fatal chest wound; died almost an hour later in a hospital while undergoing surgery
*Sandra Lee Scheuer; age 20; 390 ft (120 m) fatal neck wound; died a few minutes later from loss of blood

Wounded (and approximate distance from the National Guard):
*Joseph Lewis Jr.; 71 ft (22 m); hit twice in the right abdomen and left lower leg
*John R. Cleary; 110 ft (34 m); upper left chest wound
*Thomas Mark Grace; 225 ft (69 m); struck in left ankle
*Alan Michael Canfora; 225 ft (69 m); hit in his right wrist
*Dean R. Kahler; 300 ft (91 m); back wound fracturing the vertebrae, permanently paralyzed from the chest down
*Douglas Alan Wrentmore; 329 ft (100 m); hit in his right knee
*James Dennis Russell; 375 ft (114 m); hit in his right thigh from a bullet and in the right forehead by birdshot, both wounds minor
*Robert Follis Stamps; 495 ft (151 m); hit in his right buttock
*Donald Scott MacKenzie; 750 ft (230 m); neck wound

Legal action against the guardsmen and others

Eight of the guardsmen were indicted by a grand jury. The guardsmen claimed to have fired in self-defense, a claim that was generally accepted by the criminal justice system. In 1974 U.S. District Judge Frank Battisti dismissed charges against all eight on the basis that the prosecution's case was too weak to warrant a trial.

When are the people gonna smarten up and start bringing their weapons to these fruitless exercises in masochism.
The time to fight back is here............these bully boy cops need to be eliminated from earth...they are highly paid to do the illegal and brutal things they do to demonstrators.....
they are all getting very good money to beat these demonstrators senseless.....time to take the cops by the balls.
They cant kill everyone, and they sure can bleed.
Why the demos didnt pick out a few cops to take hostage i dont know, but if i were there id surely be trying some kind of anti riot police tactics.....
Thre cops may just back off with ten twelve of their own in handcuffs on the protest side......
then they could take the captured weapons and give the cops a taste of their own rubber.
These bastards are bullys and lackeys for the Elite, and deserve what they get for going against the people.

A group walk in a specific direction, isn't a charge though... it's just a normal paced walk.

A walk is not a charge....

The reference that I used was only to illustrate how a violent police does not even need provocation and will get political/judiciary cover for the action, they will are often working and depending on the same boss. Also to educate and remember history...

I don't like violence, but that was awesome.

The people in here going "what a pussy move, wait till he's alone and then get at him", did you even watch the entire video? 90% of it is 5 or more cops dragging a single guy towards their cute centre only to beat and kick the individual a little more in a place that is safer for the cops. How do you justify this? People are people, they can make mistakes, like kick an off-guard cop, but cops? They are supposed to set the example, if you lead by example with violence, you can damn well expect the people to follow. Unlike what most believe, people are not always sheep, they can and will stand their ground, they have done so in the past, and will continue to do so. No amount of fluoridation and food poisoning can numb the population enough to stand idle when a bunch of pigs drag a single person from the crowd only to beat him up when he's on the ground, when it becomes "us vs them" people WILL pick a side, as shown in this video, and many other so called riots.

It's always the protesters that get the blame, sure there are some that incite the violence, but the cops take an equal size of the cake, believe me
You don't show up in riot gear if all you're going to do is keep the peace, protection is one thing, going out there in armor is another. A cop in regular gear will only be assaulted by the true thugs among the protesters, but one in armor? That's basically like saying in advance "I'm going to kick the sh*t out of you, so you might as well fight back"

Man really though, that initial flying kick was freaking FLAWLESS.

The cops are so outnumbered...
They should form groups of about 10-15 people per cop and start dragging them away into the night.

Of course, then the military would be sent in.. but hey, revolt or go home!

It's tough to swing a baton when you're packed in like sardines.


Was kinda thinking that. There are so many people, if they rushed the cops they could do a divide and conquer manoever, surrounding and isolating small pockets of cops and keeping them tight in so they cant do anything. Would not need lots of violence, just tight containment. Remove the batons from the cops whilst in tight groups and stream them out into the 'cop pen' and keep them contained. That would certainly get the point across as to who is stronger with less violence.

The world is made of two kinds of people, those who are willing to even kill for the money and the power, and those who just want to be left alone to live a peaceful life.....
WOE betide those who do the kicking and beating for the masterss if the people get mad enough.....the longer this kind of violence is practiced on those who protest, the more chance that the people will finally rise up.........
I hope those bully boys just keep kicking the snip out of the people because sooner or later theyll be torn limb from limb...literally.....people will only suffer so much......
You cant keep the people down forever...and the backlash is starting to take off now..................

Meh, another group of people mad they don't get free #.


Ummm, do you have any idea what is actually in there austerity bill? Did you just wanna talk that bad????

These people are expected to work, more hours, for less pay, and pay more taxes, while government spending is cut, thus potentially increasing their expenses...............



Right. They don't want to have to work harder for entitlements in a failing economy. The coffers are empty because the government benefits and light workload that went with those benefits. It was unsustainable programs that they demanded that caused the financial mess. There is no free lunch but they have not learned that yet.


Entitlements, like affordable food and shelter? HOW DARE THEY!!!

You must be one of those "money makes the world go 'round, deal with it" type people..


No, I'm one of those "socialism does not work" and "the best person to help you is yourself" type people. The reason why Spain is in such distress is that people voted themself entitlements but didn't want to work for them. WHen the money runs out, so do the entitlements. If they put all of that energy from the protest, into making themselves better, they could. BUt hard work is for suckers. THe biggest problem of socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.


You totally miss the point navy doc, the European parliament is an illegal entity in itsef, you have no idea how much theft has taken place within the parliament itself by those that control it.
Theft that is then heaped onto the backs of the people.
For the parliament to even exist it is stated in the treaty of Rome, they must sign off on the accounts for the EU every year.
In the seventeen years that has meant to happen every single year, it has not happened once.
I am dissapointed even with the dearth of information available, and the blatantly obvious amounts of money that have been squandered by governments on both sides of the Atlantic, that people can still believe the fault is with the people and who they voted for.
They didn't ask for this mess, this mess is part of as larger plan to bankrupt the countries in the EU and forge an unpayable debt bond between them, debt is the one thing the bankers and elite ofd the planet like to see the people under at a national level, it means they are owned, literally with no hope of ever seeing fiscal freedom again, EVER.

I suggest you watch this and educate yourself, i know much harder than blaming "Entitlement", nevertheless, it is something worthwhile doing if you want to be seen as being fair minded and not just interested in blaming those who have absolutely no control over what happens.

If you think the voters done this, check out the story behind the irish referendum vote for the EU.

This is what happens when your entire society is living off the government and feels entitled to other people's money. Where do you people get off thinking this is normal? Its perverse.

Someone else might have said this already.. but at the 1:40 mark did anyone else notice the police officers dressed like "anarchist" in jeans and black hoodies helping an officer drag a protester to the police van????

Anyways, thanks for the thread because I wouldn't even have known there were riots taking place in Spain at this time.
