Can we leave the snide comments at the door please and look at this news in a different light?

Today manchester hosted 2 successful and peaceful protests, in which 50,000 people marched and talked openly about their concerns for our country and government. Its just so wonderful that we're able to do that and not have to live in fear of a police state smashing our skulls in, such as whats currently happening in barcelona.

I spoke to a couple of police officers today and thanked them for watching over us and helping to keep us safe. They're some nice lads and manchester has shown the rest of the world that we can have peaceful protests without resorting to violence, police brutality or vehicular murder (charlottesville).

Well you have hung a big sign saying HANG THE TORIES. I know Labour can't really be taken seriously these days, but a threat is a threat...

I think a necessary precaution in order to protect protesters, not the Tories. Manchester was only recently hit by a bomb attack and car/van attacks are becoming more frequent.

Hopefully that's a stock sniper picture. They wouldn't be very professional if someone could get that close and point a long lens at them without them realising.

Either that or they weren't long lens, they actually went up on the roof and got a worse surprise than teddies having a picnic.

"What are you people doing here?"

"Just...surveillance."

"Surveillance?"

"Definitely not sniping."

What's the big deal? This is standard security procedure. You can expect police snipers at any event where the government will be out with the public.
Its called being prepared to deal with potential terrorist threats.

Craig Lee Henthorn you obviously forget what the Thatcher government and her state police did to the miners in the 1980s. And it's interesting to note that the pictures of armed police looking more like mercenaries not to mention snipers looks as if we're adopting the worst of what passes for law and order in the US. Oh wait a minute - this already happened in NI. We should all feel very uneasy right now.

An Accuracy International L115A3 is capable of putting a .338 Lapua Magnum through a man's forehead at over 2 miles. Worrying that they've got those pointed at protesters, seems almost fascist.
