I'm pretty sure in 100% of these situations, the protest devolved into a riot before the cops started copping.

Explain to me how you're pretty sure? Or are you just assuming because you don't want to admit the intrinsically violent nature of the police force?

Normally I would agree with you but police in general have a track record of doing this kind of **** to nonviolent protesters.

It's just because other people take advantage of these protests for using it for another purpose. You think the police just starts randomly shoot people with rubber bullets or water? No. It's just because you akways have those people who just want to start a riot and hurt other people. They're the problem not cops.

Yes and no . The reasons that the police will become violent is not always the same .
You must remember that being a policeman is a JOB .
Most of the times they are put into a corner and told that they will lose their jobs .
And before you say ,"he could disobay order" ... policeman has a family aswell .
Do not expect people to become martyrs .
Also may i remind you people that in most countries , the police officers dont have
to protect the citizens , JUST ENFORCE THE LAW .(Yes america you are one of them ... great freedom you got there )
TLR
Cops are at fault just like any other human being that just doesnt do something to not elect the same ******* every god damn time .Also they are paws just like every single one of those troublemakers .

well, there are not always "other people", in Mexico Government uses "Grupos de choque", paid people to start the hostilities against the police to get evidence of a "Hostile Protest" and use unmeasured force against protesters and justify police's life threat situation, i really think is the only country that does that...

In Turkey, the protesters later on (when they became full on anti-government rallies) frequently attempted to stop people throwing molotovs and becoming violent. Those doing so, however, we actually police provocateurs.

The protests in Turkey were largely peaceful. The protesters even formed a 'commune'. In it was a moneyless market, a small library and a quiet area for reading, and a prayer area for religious participants. That area has since been bulldozed after an unprovoked raid which dispersed the demonstrators from the area.

It's important to remember that one protest against the demolition of a single park in Istanbul has turned into a nation-wide movement, opposing the increasingly authoritarian government and creeping Islamism. A few environmentalists stirring up trouble and attracting a stronger police response doesn't result in national anti-government protests without good reason.

That's actually a reasonable stance IMO. Bring the red thumbs. Not everyone can afford to lose their jobs, but they do wanna show their support to what they believe in. When you guys move out from your parents basement and get a family and other responsibilites, you will understand.

That was the reason he gave me, and I defended that.

People are so closed-minded and can't seem to make their own thoughts... the mask is "unpopular" on this site now, and therefore they think they are faggots for wearing it. They may be faggy rich hipsters, who just partakes in the protests, because they don't like the "system" or something, and wear the mask, because it represents the mindless pop-culture that they have adopted, but maybe they just think it looks cool, and wear it because they actually have something to fear if they are recognized.

It's basic human nature to be filled with prejudices and generalisations from past experiences, but with the evolution of mass-media and progress of civilization, we are filled with others' experiences/opinions all the time, and that's why we are all close-minded bigots. I am not an exception of course.

Wouldn't that make us the exact opposite of closed-minded? As we are constantly confronted with other people's opinions and circumstances we have a lot of different perspectives.

I'm sorry, English is not my first language and I have used the term "close-minded" wrong. I'm actually arguing for more close-mindedness.
I also ruined my whole comment by writing 'opinions'. I only meant 'experiences'.
Here's an example of how I think it works:
a person sees a headline that says "Black man raped white girl".
Then he'll go home and see in the TV that the reporter is talking about a black man who raped a white girl. Then he'll go on the internet or meet with some friends and they'll talk about the black man who raped the white girl.
Then he will automatically think about that every time he sees a black man.
That's why I think people are so filled with prejudices and generalisations, because by nature we only have our own experiences, or maybe a small group's, to form our opinions from.

It was an example of how it works. It could be about Nutella too. Nutella is voted most delicious spread, Nutella comercials everywhere, everyone talks about Nutella. Everyone thinks Nutella tastes great, even people who haven't tasted it. They are coloured by other peoples' experiences.

So by that logic people should think that every other black person is a non-rapist.

Yes. The alternative is to presume every black person is a rapist.
There's nothing wrong with being careful and avoiding possible dangers, but there's a difference between stigmatizing people for things they haven't done, just because they are of a certain gender or age. You can avoid possible dangers, without doing that.

No, quite the contrary. People believe Nutella is the only chocolate paste that taste good, and all the other pastes are rubbish.

It depends on the part of the world. If the protest was damaging enough to a big enough power, that power would take steps to belittle it. For example sending a double agent.

Go find out what actually happened first, idiot. The brazilian protests were 100% peaceful all the way.

When the police told us to leave, by nicely throwing smoke bombs, people literally got up and started to leave.

Oh but hey, my friend was shot with a rubber bullet in the leg while walking away

I was actually in Turkey for my birthday, which happened to be the second day of rioting.

The police used so much tear gas that it was stinging our eyes/sinuses/throats from about a mile away.

This isn't really the police or the protesters fault, just a bunch of ******* cunts who tried to take advantage of the situation by trying to turn it into a riot/rob a few ******* shops, so the police (over)reacted and **** hit the fan. You know the kind of people who start **** for the sake of starting ****.

Back in 2011 around August in the UK I believe riots broke out because someone pulled a gun out on a police officer and as a result got gunned down. This lead to a small protest which the scum seeing this as an opportunity to rob/beat others, caused riots, or literally plan raid shops (planned on newly stolen phones/laptops).

People like this don't need to be put in ******* prison, they need to be put in a ******* school so they can ******* learn that this **** isn't acceptable, and a police man arresting and throwing them in a cell is just going to make them angrier.
