#1 The answer is immediate, lethal gunfire. You are throwing something, you get shot. When the meat wagon comes to take the dead guy, they'll figure out his 'intentions'.

#3 It's really just an application of Niven's rules.

Rule 1. Don't throw shit at an armed man.
Rule 2. Don't stand next to someone throwing shit at an armed man.

#4 Police are afraid of being falsely accused of

The gravestone of this civilization shall read:

"Here lies the civilization that conquered moons, erased diseases, inequality (largely), and once dreamed to get to the stars. Ironically it was empowerment that tethered them to their basest condition. Of perpetual fear.

Selection and recruitment of policemen matters a great deal and becomes evident only in the later stages of a city-wide malignancy. This is true for police in any part of the world.

Really? Explain then why India stations police from from one part of the country, in areas that they don't originate from? On one of my first trips to India I noticed that the various police stations had housing compounds adjacent to them.

I asked my wife what the deal was, she said that the police stationed there were all from other parts of the country, that way they didn't have any relationship or attachment to the local populace and therefore no compunction against cracking heads. Do you think that is a good thing?

#9 Ref #12:. Mrs. Panda nailed it. Pretty much SOP for internal defense issues.

#10 Why don't Cuomo de Blasio try putting put on the blue uniform and go into some of these districts where the NYPD patrols? Let's see how much they have to say then. Talk is cheap.

#11 Take away dah Mayor's and Guv's armed guards as a scientific experiment. Write a report on conclusions and recommendations and publish.

#12 Almost sounds as if he wants the city to be overrun by punks.

#13 What I meant was that the recruitment and selection policies often carry within them stipulations that want pansy boy scouts instead of sheep dogs. Indian police have their own shortcomings, but they can be depended upon to break heads because nobody will even slap their wrists after.

Of course, Panda. It would be a good thing if that was the city police. It was the paramilitary units (central reserve police force) that you saw stationed. The regular LE is always done by local PDs.

Only in matters of emergency, or for guarding an event or gathering are the CRPF mobilized. In India they're always busy, either guarding tourists/visiting dignitaries or kicking down doors in case of domestic terror. And the rationale you gave is correct, plus the legally tactical advantage in the language divide. A great linguistic chasm that allows for ;

"I wouldn't know if he was trying to surrender, Judge. I speak Tamil not Punjabi. He should've just put the stick down."

#14 It's really too bad he's not running for president. It would be fun hearing DJT refer to him as "Mr. Cummo..."
