Apparently the guy who got shot dead wanted to throw a stone and the response was to use lethal force. Now then ... Why does that sound familiar? (hint: picking an example where this happened in another country doesn't actually mean that it's right) A public order issue is a police matter and not a military one, which is the root problem. Thank god that in the UK protesters who throw stones won't be gunned down as the response. What's the phrase? shoot first, ask questions later.
