This is being reported as a thing:
Protests descended into violent chaos yet again in Portland over the weekend, as protesters targeted the federal courthouse and reportedly hurled Molotov cocktails toward federal officers.
There’s no “reportedly” about it: the Pantifas are trying to set the cops on fire. The question is: what should we do about it? Here’s my humble suggestion:
(That’s a Swiss police sniper, but you get the idea. If all the cool kids — and especially the ever-neutral Swiss — are doing it…)
There’s probably no need to go Full Mosul on the thing, but whatever.
And the rules of engagement (ROE) should be quite simple: the second the bomb leaves the thrower’s hand — establishing a prima facie offensive action — open fire. Ditto the little shits letting off commercial fireworks (rockets) aimed at the cops.
I’m done being all patient and indulgent. Let’s see how the rioters’ nail-studded plywood shields stand up to a .308 bullet.
