Would bring tears of joy to an old Cavalry Man

BBC News - Police on horseback charge at protesters

Comments

Next time I am taking my portable air horn.

Why not just shoot a few of them? They are supposedely "students", it would teach them a great deal.

Interesting that the "shock" of the mounted charge is absorbed fairly quickly by the protester "infantry." It was probably much the same in lance-and-sword days, because once the horse has slowed, the horseman is reduced to swinging a sword with only his arm for force.

Where's the water cannon, tear gas dispensers, nightsticks, rubber bullets, and all the other riot gear?
And where's the backup troops with SA80s and FMJ to lend some extra punch if needed?

These "students" should be given a painful and solidly explicit lesson in humility, and this isn't it.
