The exercise, said the Department, was meant to bolster police deterrence and enhance the officers' ability to handle complex situations

Well, I think it was effective in deterring the police alright.

This is only a drill. Repeat, only a drill.

No, really ......

Is our police occifers learning?

"The police are not here to create disorder. The police are here to preserve disorder" comes to mind.

Sometimes I miss The Mayor.

Well that's going to put the public at ease.

"rioters" apparently used excessive force"

So in a real riot, they would only use moderate force?

Oy vey.

Well, apparently the police officers needed the practice.

The rioters, however, were already in top form.

Maybe they should just swap sides with the real rioters?

Police Commissioner Dudi Cohen is in deep dudi now.

Yes, Officer Dudi on duty, stepped in some deep doody

Should have worn the riot gear instead of the practice-drill gear.
