German states send more police to Hamburg as G20 violence escalates

Protesters injured at least 160 police officers, torched cars and lorries and broke into a locked-down metro station on Friday, seeking to wrest control of the streets of Hamburg as leaders from the world’s biggest economies met nearby.

    Only a whiff of grapeshot by the police will stop the rioting. Anything less than that is weakness to the rioters.

      Time to turn this escapade into a live fire exercise.

    Maybe they should do some secure Skyping or something similar instead. it would save a lot of money & hassle.

    Use rubber bullets ..

      You are too kind. I believe they might have to use something a little harder than rubber if they are able to get through the barriers to the green zone where all the leaders are.

      Then again, to see those leaders who have been cultivating and growing this crop of snowflakes and antifa get hoisted by their own petard does have a sweet taste of schadenfreude too.

    Wouldn’t the rioters be surprised to learn that the G20 delegates have the same agenda as they do? More funding for the welfare state, more third world aid, fighting global warming etc.. They only differ in now quickly each side wants to implement agenda.
