    Title says it all really, all these pathetic leftie losers (funny, its always lefties) burning police cars in London, why dont they just shoot them with rubber bullets?

    Beyond the fact it would be enjoyable to watch them getting shot, it would solve the problem!

    thats not a valid argument, plus how would it solve the problem? surely shooting people will just increase tension.

    That would be police brutality. They should have the freedom to shout their idiotic backwards ideas all they want. Just because you don't agree with them doesn't give you the right to attack them, even though no doubt a lot of them would be prepared to do the same to you.

    I say that as a free-market capitalist.

    Rubber bullets are a last resort, they only increase the tension.

    Rubber bullets are fairly ineffective at debilitating the target. I would suggest a 12 gauge bean bag round.

    Argument? Idiots causing violence = get shot by police.

    Increase the tension then, so long as the police shoot them even more if violence starts.

    Protest in peace, or get shot. Simple!

    imo, shooting people will not help the situation and its more than likely to cause a negative reaction and cause even more clashes. I agree that some protesters may be causing some damage and being violent, but thats a minority. We live in a free country and have the right to protest, and its a shame when people turn things violent but shooting people is just wrong imo.

    Water cannons work pretty well over here in NI without causing damage to property, enraging the crowd or running the risk of injuring someone (including innocents for example).

    The right to protest does not include criminal damage.

    I would like to see someone try and clash with a regiment of police wielding 12 gauge shotguns loaded with bean bags.

    why are you so violent? Why would you wish for harm to befall on your fellow countrymen and the human race in general? you are such an evil person. Do you know that rubber bullets can actually kill people?

    Violent "protesters" should be met violently.

    I don't think they should let them get away with it, but I think they should run video cameras and put protesters responsible in jail for destruction of property. Also, I think something as simple as turning a hose on the protesters can get them in line. They're all fired up and angry... so cool them down and they can come to their senses. I think there's also a type of gas that can be used that stings and burns, but doesn't actually cause any long-term harm.

    Having a right to protest is not the same as having a right to fire things at people or destroy property. At that point it's not a protest, but a riot.

    Of course, I would support the right of police to use shoot people who have guns in the US, but that's because once the criminal has a gun, your options are limited and it may be a kill-or-be-killed situation. Good thing about the UK is that that's far less common.
