Modern Day General Dyers

Via BBC, Indian police shoot 12 protesters

Indian police say they have shot dead 12 protesters during student demonstrations in the north-eastern state of Meghalaya.

Police say they opened fire when students attacked them with stones, injuring some officers.

Are we living in the 21st century or what? Have the police not heard of non-lethal means of crowd control? Or is it that these Garo kids can be treated with utter brutality because their compatriots don't really care?

Well, we care. In our view, these modern day General Dyers in Indian police uniform should be tried for murder.
