It was posted at a site that had a very interesting analysis (pp. 202-203):
Observe, four unarmed, unarmored rioters confront eight cops armed and in full armor. Some of the cops show fear. Emboldened by this, a large horde abruptly materializes to support the four unarmed rioters. Police rapidly become so non threatening, non confrontational, and non provocative that a cynic might think it looks remarkably as if they are running like rabbits. Compare and contrast with Jason Rodrigues’ account of two young men facing down a large gang with the threat of deadly force.Jeff Cooper mused on riot control in his excellent 1998 book To Ride, Shoot Straight, And Speak The Truth:
It would seem desirable to devise a system which would make sure, first, that the riot would stop; and second, that only the leaders would feel the weight of social disapproval.Now watch that video again, and pick out the two or three leaders of the riot. Ask what would happen to the rest if those leaders didn't lead.
Let us consider such a means - the 22-caliber rimfire rifle. This weapon, properly sighted and equipped with a noise suppressor, may be used with surgical delicacy to neutralize mob leaders without risk to other members of the group, without noise and with scant danger of death to the subject. A low-velocity 22 bullet in the lung will not knock a man down, and in these days of modern antisepsis it will almost never kill him if he can get to a hospital in a reasonable time. It will, however, absolutely terminate his interest in leading a riot.
Of course, this will never happen in Her Britannic Majesty's Scepter'd Isle. That's why we don't call it "Great" anymore.
