I defy any other police force anywhere else to use less force. these guys were fighting for their lives. The fact that they were swarmed and attacked with knives and metal rods- some were stabbed and at least one soldier was thrown over the railing- what was the expected outcome? That the soldiers would just stand there and sacrifice themselves to the appeasers? In my neighbourhood , just brandishing a knife at a police officer is justification for him to shoot- and the target is the chest area.
