Saw this on Facebook. Anyone know the backstory? I want to get the facts before jumping into the melee.

Only the violent protesters deserve to be shot.
Help the police by standing clear of violent protesters, the life you save may be your own

People I disagree with have no right to protest.

Get with the program.

Non-violent protester don't get shot with crowd control devices, rioters do.

Cops are saying they don't even have rubber bullet guns.

Looks like maybe she took an FN303 round or two or maybe rubber slugs to the jaw? Regardless of what the scenario was that led up to that, a head shot is always a no no with any less-leathal deployment, someone messed up on that one pretty bad. I took a rond from an FN303 to the head with a level IIIA balistic helmet on and it still rang my bell, I can only imagine how bad that hurt. We were using training rounds and the rounds we received from FN were apperebtly recalled for terrible accuracy issues. We didn't find that out until after I took the one to the helmet (which was aimed at my back, center mass).

The known fatal shooting with an FN was in Boston durring a riot, where a male was shot in the eye while on the run behind the actual target. It was a straight up accident, but as we all know, accidents with weapons of any kind are never acceptable regardless of the scenario.

Who ever said that was a non-violet protestor is probably a lying sack of shit.

That's how it works, push it to the limit, get tazed and hit with rubber bullets, then scream foul and let the dumbass left wing media do your lying for you.

If I remember correctly this occurred in Israel.

ETA:

Maybe not. Seems that it may have been in the U.S., but we aren't sure of the location yet.

That pic was from the Port of Oakland a while back during an Iraq war protest. Some fucknut threw a botlle at the police, and they opened up with bean bag rounds.

I mostly agree. The instant a "demonstration" becomes a "riot", however (or the instant a single rock/bottle/whatever gets thrown), it's on like donkeykong and if you're caught in the middle it just plain sucks to be you (and it's your own damned fault).

This chick got nailed at some rally in Minneapolis, IIRC, long before the Occupy movement.

That was the point I was going to make, but wanted to put my comments in context.

Non-violent, meet non-lethal. She isn't dead! Luckily for most of these buttholes out there protesting their own lack of personal accountability, even if they get violent, the cops are still likely to use non-lethal means to subdue them.

I recall that at one of those California port protests the cops were using wooden dowel chunks that were loaded in 12 gauge shells. They were instructed to ricochet them off of the ground into the targets. But some of them found them more effective when they just shot them directly. I think that was the story with that chick's picture.

What do I think?

I think she's alive, Sounds like they worked as intended.

Nobody said they wouldn't hurt or injure you.

Reading up on the incident it appears that she was a part of a group blocking the entrance to a port that ships military cargo. Cops ordered people to leave. Those that didn't leave got a combination of stingballs, bean bags, and wooden dowels. Protesters thought it was excessive. Cops probably found it effective.

Cop just wanted them to leave. Some choose to stay a bit too long and had to leave mad.

(Rant) They are still acting in disobedience to the authorities......Sorry but if an officer tells you to move somewhere else.....and you do not comply, especially in a large group, where some are acting out...your gonna get hurt....it is non-lethal, it hurts like a mother (I have been hit with rubber bullets/ batons from a 37mm)...but it will not hurt her in the long run, if anything she learned a valuable lesson, if she is still participating in the demonstrations, perhaps she needs another one across her backside for old times sake.

These reports need to stop saying, "Got shot"...It was rubber, not lead. I can see having to tell them once, maybe twice, but on the third time, it is open season for the police. I wish they would target the posers that are attempting to use the military uniform to discredit the government. You show up to an "Occupy" event in uniform, it should be open season as well. (end of rant)

I know I am harsh, but I have deserved my right to be harsh to communists

If it'd been a .303 wooden bullet like the brits used to use, or a lead slug, she'd have a great big fuck-off hole in her neck, so I'd say the less-lethal projectile worked as intended.

The lying sack of shit probably wore a badge, and "wrote" a report in CYA form with a judge who "supports law enforcement".
