Re: Anarchy in London, shoot the doggy do dos Why's everyone scared of the water cannon idea? It's great! Disperses riots and doesn't kill anyone, job done! Next people will be moaning about bobbies having truncheons incase anyone is hit and gets a bruise or something. I don't think water cannons are 'uncivilised' in the slightest. If you want examples of that just look at Iran. Hanging people for being gay and stoning women to death for adultery when they've been raped. If people were scared of the consequences of their actions, we'd be more likely to have peaceful protests instead. Which i'm fully in favour of, and is the difference between the country we're lucky to live in and Libya.
