  3. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-35529754 Police in India's Haryana state say they will soon begin using slingshots to control violent protesters. Policemen are being trained to use the weapons, despite concerns over their safety for crowd control. Abhishek Jorwal, chief of police in Haryana's Jind district, told the BBC that the slingshots "were made after a lot of research and development". The "specially-designed" slingshots would be in addition to batons, tear gas and other weapons currently in use. Mr Jorwal said the "idea is to avoid the use of lethal weapons against the protesters". "Officers have been instructed to use slingshots and tear gas shells, and keep guns and bullets as the last option." 'Chilli bags' Marbles and chilli balls, packed in small bags carried by the policemen, will be used as ammunition for the slingshots. "Marbles and chilli balls won't cause any permanent damage but will pack enough punch to push protesters back," he said. Handmade weapons, such as slingshots, are rarely used as a weapon by security forces in India. But the use of non-lethal weapons, such as pellet guns, in trouble-hit areas such as disputed Kashmir has resulted in serious injuries to protesters and bystanders. Correspondents say there concerns marbles and other objects fired from police catapults could also badly injure civilians.

  5. Indian embassy protest: Police officer injured in violent protest outside India House http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/indian-embassy-protest-police-officer-injuried-in-violent-protest-outside-india-house-a3097156.html I'm a little surprised this hasn't gained wider publicity given how much things kicked off there and for how long the disruption occurred. Full press release from the Met: At approximately 14:25hrs, this afternoon, Thursday, 22 October, police implemented a containment of approximately 200 people on Kingsway, at the junction with Aldwych, WC2. The containment has now been lifted. The Metropolitan Police Service was aware of a planned demonstration at the Indian High Commission. Whilst it was initially a peaceful protest the demonstrators blocked the roadway at the Aldwych and caused significant disruption to the central London road network. Police liaison officers attempted to negotiate with those present, in order to facilitate peaceful protest and minimise the disruption to the public. Additional officers, including those from the Mounted Branch, were mobilised to the area and a small group of protesters became violent towards police. During an altercation, one officer suffered a head injury and was taken to hospital. There are no reports of any of other injuries. At this stage police believe a number of offences may have been committed. There have been 20 arrests - the majority of which have been for affray.
  6. source Well they're at it again, this time through the lefty propaganda machine that is change.org. Gotta love how they've used a Daily Mail article and one that has a question mark in its headline as a source, that's like me handing in my PhD thesis with Wikipedia as a source. "If Trident acted more responsibly, Mark may not have been killed" - If Mark had acted more responsibly he wouldn't have been killed, that's a lot more indisputable than your statement. It's always the police who should take responsibility for everyone else, woe betide they should take responsibility for their own actions.
  7. Home Secretary Theresa May is to deliver a major snub to Boris Johnson by shelving a decision on the use of water cannon in London, in a move which could signal the death knell for the controversial equipment. City Hall chiefs had told MPs that they expected Mrs May to rule this month on whether three water cannon bought from Germany last June could be used to quell future riots or other disorder. She has now concluded that important concerns about safety and the impact on the nature of British policing have yet to be addressed — and is refusing to give the go-ahead during her remaining months at the Home Office. A formal rejection has been ruled out ahead of polling day to avoid a damaging political internal Conservative clash between Mrs May and the Mayor. But the decision means the Met’s three water cannon — which have remained idle since their £218,000 purchase — are increasingly unlikely to be used in London. Both Labour and the Lib-Dems have criticised the idea of deploying them in London and some Tories think the prospects of a new government approving their use appears slim. Confirming Mrs May’s stance, a Government source said the water cannon verdict would not be “this side of the election” and added that the Home Secretary was determined not be pushed into a decision when she remained unconvinced about the equipment’s suitability for Britain. Today’s revelation threatens to leave Mr Johnson with the embarrassing prospect of having to sell the three second-hand water cannon, bought from Germany last year. Mr Johnson had claimed soon afterwards that it was “highly likely” the Home Secretary would give the go-ahead and added: “My view is we need to get on and equip the police with the water cannon they need, or might need.” Critics warned, however, that incidents overseas, including one in which a German man was blinded and another in which a protester was stunned and then killed after being run over, showed that water cannon were unsafe. Mrs May, who by law must approve the water cannon and other new equipment such as tasers, responded by commissioning research into the cannons’ safety and the effect on the nature of UK policing. Water cannon have been used in Northern Ireland, but never on the mainland. http://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/theresa-may-refuses-to-give-goahead-on-boris-johnsons-water-cannon-10100207.html
