Useless By Any Definition

Riddle me this:
Why aren't these black balaclava-clad assholes lying in a hospital bed somewhere in Toronto with a police baton embedded sideways up their colon?
Every time I see criminals who call themselves demonstrators racing through the streets of a beautiful city raising all kinds of hell I wonder, as did the inestimable Mr. Steyn: "What the HELL are the cops doing? Where are they? Why aren't they breaking heads, taking names and kicking some serious ass? What the hell are they getting paid for if not to protect the property of the people who are paying their salaries that pays their mortgages, buys their groceries and sends their kids to college?"

OK, the Toronto cops arrested 400 rioters ... out of an estimated 10,000.

Police used shields, clubs, tear gas and pepper spray to push back the rogue protesters who tried to head south toward the security fence surrounding the Group of 20 summit site.

Push them back? There should be 5,000 rioters staggering around Ontario Province right now looking for a doctor to stitch up gaping head wounds and set their broken bones. Working midnights we always had a flashlight in hand, a big one made from aircraft aluminum called a Kel Light. I once used a five or six D-cell Kel Light to take down doors.

Injuries such as those aforementioned were described as "Kel-Lightis" or "Kel-Lightatosis." The scars these instruments left were rather unique. It was very much like tagging migratory animals on the forehead.


Look at this; I see maybe one cop carrying a baton (not even a riot stick, looks like an ASP baton at the extreme right in the background) and one cop carrying a tear gas grenade launcher with extra grenades slung across his chest. What are the rest of the guys carrying? Nothing.

Not a single shotgun in the politically correct bunch. Here's a piece of advice: load up a bunch of scatterguns with number six shot and let those "demonstrators" have it in their legs or aim at the asphalt a few yards in front of them and let the lead and bits of blacktop ricochet into their calves and thighs. No pushing required, let the lead do the work like God intended.


I guess I'm more pissed off at their commanders and the politicians who obviously gave the orders to allow these rampaging fools to torch the City of Toronto. Maybe they feel that since the insurance companies and taxpayers will cover the costs of all the damage and mayhem there's no need to get nasty ... and act like cops. What a crock.

Now, now. Mustn't be so judgmental. Where is your compassion for the protesters, bravely acting out against the plutocrats? Where is your admiration for those brave souls who call attention to the evils of souless capitalism?

Okay, pardon me while I go fellate goats for a nickel a herd until I get my self respect back. Sounding like a bleeding heart lib idiot always makes me lose it.

**SIGH** Sure a lot differant than in our day ain't it "Sig"? I still remember the 69 and 70 riots. Lots of fun was had by all (ceptin the riotoers of course). Hospital rooms booked up solid for a week after that. The differance was "Kick Ass, don't take names!"

Nah, I missed that by a couple years Cookie. Except for the Marshall St. shenanigans the SPD wasn't really on campus at all.

I was a collitch senior at SU working SU Security at nights to get my remitted tuition. I was on my own with a wife and newborn and it was the only way I could make it through school seeing that I was the wrong color to get much financial aid. Good Lord, I worked full time midnights walking the stairs on the main campus and went to school full time during the day. I was 120 pounds lighter than I am now. I looked like a freakin' rail (5'10", 135 lbs.).

I think they are so afraid of lawsuits they do not dare do anything. Just as troops in Afghanistan can not shoot back, or the border control can not arrest illegals. The lawyers rule our world.

Where's Vlad The Impaler when you need him. Now THAT was a guy who keep keep order in the streets.

Trestin, I completely understand the lawsuit angle. I was sued twice (one in state and then in federal court) and it indeed puts a binder on what you would normally do. But when your City is in flames I would hope that your instincts would be to do whatever is needed to stop it. From other blogs I gather that the Toronto cops were more interested in harassing tourists who were photographing the rioters than they were in stopping the rioters themselves.

Fredd - alas Vlad is no longer with us. And in order to reduce the threat of deforestation, we might have to use stakes made by grinding up recycled milk bottles and tires. We'll look into that...

Sig, the tactics you are calling for are reserved for use on Tea party types only. Not compassionate, multicultural, sustainable, earth friendly citizens who care.

that warm, fuzzy feeling your having right now is the blood boiling out of your ears....

I came on the PD 7 years after the race riots of 1967. Some of the guys are still alive from that time so I should keep my mouth shut over what they did to regain a semblance of order. Not sure of the statute of limitations doncha know. It was not pretty and lots of idiots got hurt. The hospitals were very, very busy and not a lot of paperwork was filled out. But after one night of intense "police counseling" the looting and arson came to a screeching halt.
