It also appears that some police commanders on-scene made peace agreements with the nativos to allow peaceful protests until a certain time to which they all agreed … but (as usual) the politicians were busy doing their own thing. Well, once the polis made decisions (which of course they deny) that on-scene police were not aware of … it all went to shit from there (as usual). The result? Good police and indigenous were killed unnecessarily.
Cluster fuck of the week.
