How is it that when people beat you with steel rods, wooden axe handles, Molotov cocktails and knives, that killing them is excessive force. Is that not what they were trying to do to you? Clearly this UN report has a serious flaw. If no weapons were used by any protester, I could understand,. The UN is trying to find a moral equivalency here and there is none. The soldiers came on board with paint guns then when attacked with lethal force, used lethal force of their own. Needless deaths yes. The protesters did not have to attack. They could have remained peaceful and no one would have died. They chose to attack its all on their own heads.
