THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Police opened fire on protesters and seven people were injured in rioting that erupted in downtown Rotterdam around a demonstration against COVID-19 restrictions. The Dutch city’s mayor called it “an orgy of violence.”

Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb told reporters in the early hours of Saturday morning that “on a number of occasions the police felt it necessary to draw their weapons to defend themselves” as rioters ran rampage through the port city’s central shopping district, setting fires and throwing rocks and fireworks at officers.

“They shot at protesters, people were injured,”

‘Orgy of violence’: Dutch police open fire on rioters

Using live ammo is not cool. Not much more too say although I agree with the reason for the protests.

I guess they don't have many riots over there, they never heard of rubber bullets?

Rubber bullets, paint balls, flash bang rounds, there are all kinds of less than lethal ways to respond. Bad training and not properly equipped it would seem in this case.

I've always wanted to try out the shotgun beanbag rounds.

I just got some flash bangs in yesterday. They are expensive but if they scare off without having to actually shoot someone, they are worth it. They will also wake the neighbors, which is handy in those situations. Been waiting for them to get back in stock for months.

I have heard the bean bags are kind of dangerous because they vary in power. You have to use the right one for the range or they can break bones or penetrate. Then again, this can apply to rubber bullets. You have to use the ones made for the range to the target.

It will not surprise me if we will later find out this was an organised riot. The dutch in general are peacefull protesters. What we see here are a certain group of young people wilh masks on...punn intended.. who are creating property damage and chaos.

Reason being to polarise the citizens even more...making the unvaxxed the boogieman.

Then the "Peaceful Protesters" need to put down that "certain group of young people". Until they do, they must share the guilt. I've said the same thing about the protests in the US. Funny how the old Soviet's Union's tactics still live on.

I really like your solution. Unfortunately some don’t listen.

Protest all you want but don’t riot in my neighborhood.

- 1 police offers in hospital with minor injuries
- 51 arrests have been made
- over half of those arrested are underage
- most of the rioters are from the local football club Feyenoord and other football clubs.

What peaceful protesters?

It was a gathering of a couple of dozen people who gathered on the Coolsingel to express their discontent (start trouble) over the new measures. No official protest, just a hand full of trouble makers who attracted more trouble makers when things got lit..

Act like savage animals and get treated as such.

Good job police.

Easier done than said meanwhile for many, especially younger people who can´t stand the lies and the revolution of the few
filthy rich and their bought henchmen anymore. As i am older it is easy for me to just sit and wait and watch what will happen till i have to do whatever necessary then. But being around 20 years old at these dystopian times right now i don´t know if that would be so easy for me not to be that angry and maybe even riot if you see no other chance anymore.

What have they told and promised to the people if the people only would do whatever they say, whenever they say it, without questioning anything. Some examples (translated from german via google translate):

It's only two weeks. It's only a meter away. It's only three meters away. It's just not going outside. It means not shaking hands. It means working from home. It is only insignificant deals that are closed.

It's just bars. It's just restaurants. They're just cinemas. It's just concerts. It's just dancing. It's just sport in a club. It is just not vital medical services that one must do without.

It's all about non-essential things that you can't buy. It's all about not being able to do sports. It's just closing your business for a period of time. It means not making money for a while. It's just that you can't pay your bills for a while. It's just that you can't have social contacts for a while.

It's just a mask. It's just not traveling for a while. It's just that you can't hug people for a while. It's just that you don't see your family and friends for a while. It's just that you can't visit your grandparents temporarily.

It's just a birthday to sacrifice. It's just a Christmas without your family. It's only two birthdays that you had to sacrifice. It's just not being able to celebrate a single milestone for a year and a half. It's just temporary. It's just a security measure.

It's just a vaccination. It's just a booster set. It's just regular booster vaccinations every six months. It's just another lockdown. You only have to prove that you are fit once a week or twice to participate in society. Or to take the train. The vaccination help and are save.

Just a "breakwater" until the numbers drop.

Just until the exponential growth stops.

Just until the numbers stagnate.

Just until the numbers go down.

Only until the numbers stabilize in the lower range.

Only until 10% more have been vaccinated.

Only until the StiKo recommends vaccination for over 5 year olds.

Only until Christmas - for a nice party.

Only until New Year's Eve to relieve the ICUs.

Just a little more, we don't want to gamble away everything we have achieved so far.

Only until Easter - for a nice party.

Only until all 12+ are boosted.

Only until...

I know violence is the wrong way but i totally understand why especially younger, and by far not only them, people are ready to explode. It is by definition terror what they are doing to the people since nearly two years, terror is violence.
And violence creates counter-violence. That´s how it ever was and ever will be, if this is good or not good doesn´t matter.

My fear is that the great resetters use this knowledge to make the people riot and revolt, to make the people that angry so they explode, because they do nothing else since nearly two years and i guess they need revolts to create their china like dictatorship in those WEF infilrated nations that are willing to play the game according to hidden Hitler Klaus Schwab´s plans.

Here in the US we call them Antifa and BLM. They're allowed to burn and pillage at will with the support of the Democratic party.

How do real "peaceful protesters" know that there are organized disrupters in the works? When it happened in canada, years back, it wasn't known to anyone until the fact was shown in photos that all the disrupters wore identical tread patterns on the boots. Why must genuine peaceful protesters share guilt? These truly malicious groups need to be exposed.
