While facts are hard to come by and people are wildly speculating and accusing everyone of everything, it strikes me (no pun intended) that given the situation yesterday, we would either be looking at the headline above or something along the lines of “Police massacred”.
Was there another option? There surely should have been.

My feeling is that we shouldn’t be concentrating on what happened yesterday, more on the events over the previous weeks that led to the obviously untenable situation that occurred yesterday afternoon.
