From high above, film footage of a city engaged in a riot, looks like a swarm of angry bees attacking whatever disturbed the hive. Starting off as a protest against an injustice, the rightfully agitated crowd is an active powder keg that needs but one poor decision by any mayor or law enforcement officer to set it off. Trying to protect property and life, the police, although well protected by their gear and the law, are fearful of being injured or killed if violence erupts. They respect the protester’s right to gather until a frenzy builds up to the point where vandalism, disorderly conduct, arson, and looting erupts. After that, all bets are off. Using film footages from the hundreds of American riots that have occurred, think tanks can come up with a plan to avoid property damage and bloodshed. Examining the riots that occurred after the assassination of Martin Luther King, the acquittal of the Rodney King assailants and tens of other riots that have occurred due to racial tensions, a thorough understanding of the beehive mentality will surface. The answer for dispersal is straightforward, cold water. If the police respond too aggressively, too soon, or the protestors start behaving criminally; release the tankers. Flying above the hot spots at 7,000′ are firefighting tankers full of 33°F water. Once one of the 2 groups exceeds its authority, dump the cold water on the offending party at a rate that will knock them to the ground. Cold and wet will remind them that they are out of line and they need to clear the area. With the threat of another harder hitting shower coming their way, the bee’s survival instinct will kick in, and the confrontation will soon disappear. The dry crowd will claim victory and go back to their hives, to reminisce the humorous stories of their adversaries being washed down the drain, just like a bowel movement. Without all the thunder (rubber bullets and rocks) or the methane (tear gas and arson fires), this shit will soon end.
