That big grey thing does look a bit handy, but not too sure whether parking a Searider on top of a Zapcat should be encouraged

I know that the protesters shouldn't have been there, but I can't help thinking that the police put lives at risk by ramming the protesters. On the BBC news you could see people being thrown from the rib when it was rammed by the grey boat. Scary...

Tell me about it - nearly took their heads off - surely decapitation is a bit extreme for such an offence???

Yeh, just saw that, it mounted what looked like a zapcat like it was driving onto a versadock. Bloody dangerous if you as me.

Wrong. The protesters put their lives and the lives of the police at risk by trying to illegally crash the summit. If those idiots had been killed (and if they were, ... oh well), it would have been completely their own fault and not that of the police.
