    Only the survivors left after the Apache gunships are done.

    Careful aim when shooting at protestors doesn’t seem to a top-of-mind issue for many posters here today.

    I think we aimed about 20-30 yards out and it bounced to the 50yrd targets. Mostly taking out lower torso and legs pattern. of course it will spread with the 9 pellets in improved cylinder chokes in 870's. Im sure the grass was thick since the range officers rarely had time to mow. There are many less than lethal shotshell makers and seen one that loads airsoft pellets including glow in the dark, 38 in a three inch. that would make a good crowd pattern or a #4 shotshells.

    I feel like it's hard to argue that nobody is advocating the Kent State approach when the best 'crowd pattern' and shot shell loads for taking out the legs of protestors is the current topic.

    I find it hard to believe that anyone would want to just let this go on.
    Protesters are fine, criminals should be dealt with as such.

    Interesting, intriguing idea.
    So by the sales of metal cap knee pads one can tell whether a 'protest' is on the schedule.

    "Getting aggressive as hell about arresting riot instigators " is force. You can call it what you want, but it's still an escalation of force.

    I really don't care about anyone's Walter Mitty thoughts on this weapon or that. Those posters are not in positions of power.

    What I do care about is the survival of civil society and that cannot happen without law and order. Suppressing riots are about will. You warn to disperse. You order to clear an area. And then you enforce the lawful order, whether you arrest 5 or 500.

    Didn't clear the area, arrest. Resist by fighting, forced into submission and arrested. Throw a firebomb, drive a car into LEO, shoot at LEO/NG, arrest if you survive. A day, maybe two, and this madness will stop, at least for the short term. And that's what needs to happen asap if these nightly riots continue.

    This stopped being about George Floyd several days ago.

    Don’t be part of a riot then.

    I figure energy, sound weapons should be good. Verbal warning, turn on low, increase power, range slowly.
    Talked to old geezer (even by my standards). He recalled when the Police quit playing patty cake rioters, looters, found reasons to go home.
    The shooting of less lethal at residents sitting quietly filming on their porch angers me. Rioters, looters, arsonists. Clear to fire less lethal.
