So then they probably shouldn't have shot it up.
Again, to play devil's advocate, the car ran from them. Shooting at a car that refuses to stop is not a very uncommon tactic of Police all around the
world, as Swills has pointed out. It has even happened here in the USA, although it will accompany a story that the car was being used as a weapon and
Police were forced to use lethal force to protect themselves.
Also, as much as I commend them for what they're doing, caution is necessary as well. They really have no official authority at this point and no
citizen should be forced to cower under their presence just as much as a corrupt police force.
In any case of revolution, there is always a power vacuum left behind that has to be filled. With no Police force in place, it is the people who are
forced to enforce the law of the land. If they do not do it, any other entity could come fill that void, be it drug lords, gangs, or any idiot willing
to step up to the microphone.
The car full of tourists really had no requirement to stop for them. Honestly, would YOU have stopped? I highly doubt it if you were to answer
You would be 100% correct, I would not have stopped. I also would not have been shocked to be shot at for not stopping as well.
Let's say you're driving home on your way from work in an area you KNOW if rife with crime, corruption, etc. Would you stop for a group of ten
men with guns and bandannas?
Guns and bandannas, of course not. That being said, I do not know the case you are referring to and I have no idea how those men who attempted that
stop were dressed at the time.
It's great they want to overthrow the bad guys but you cannot go around shooting up unknown people. That's my main bone to pick.
And it is a fair point to make, but there is always two sides to every story. The truth is however, that with revolution and great change the
transition is not going to go smoothly with no impact on the general population. If it were that easy, every Nation on earth would probably be in
such a state right now. So things like you are describing are going to happen. Those in power do not simply give up the power they hold. It must be
Sorry but I get the impression you're arguing for the sake of arguing.
Sorry but no argument here at all. Simply offering another perspective for the sake of discussion.
