Sigh.. As usual, have to exclaim.. Where did we go wrong.. where did we go wrong...
But the silver lining is that the good fight is going on.. thanks people watch.

Riot control in India tends to be unacceptably more prone to casualties than it needs to be, due to obsolete technology and near-arbitrary discretionary powers. Following is an archive of a Facebook discussion in the Nirmukta Skeptics Facebook group.
OP by AI:
Quote:How can a credible scientific evaluation of proposed riot control technologies for Indian law enforcement be made?
Quote:I am glad to see this issue being discussed. Actually, I despair everytime the words 'police have to be rough or they cannot maintain law and order' are uttered (or something similar).
Quote:Would you like to write an article on humane and effective policing that both addresses the humanitarian imperative as well as solves the associated technical problem of minimizing 'collateral damage'? A post with a reiteration of the right to peaceful protest, a survey of methods in use elsewhere and related policy suggestions can help start a useful, much-needed conversation. For now, I have archived the thoughtful comment above in this thread: http://nirmukta.net/Thread-A-documentary...y-in-India
