i want to post these here. Yes, i'm being a vibe killer posting such a controversial and violent video in a forum where people discuss anime and manga. But i believe in the community of Crunchyroll and i know you people do actually care about what is going on around the world. I saddens me that the people and the police involved are the ones who have to carry the consequences of bad governments and corruption.

If possible i would like to keep this topic as active as possible by you people helping me and posting any new development of any riot around the world.
Here are some countries that i know are going through countless riots and violent protests.
Spain (Madrid)
Venezuela (caracas)
Brazil-Rio E Janeiro
Ukraine
Crimea
Turkey (Istanbul- Gezi)

I'm not exactly sure what the aim of the thread is. Did you just want us to post updates on riots so that people would be updated or talk about it?

I haven't heard anything about Crimean protests?
And Ukraine is pretty much over, as they have established a new government, I dunno if it's still going though, but it would seem it is starting to decline.
And you forgot to mention Syria -.- You know Assad and those guys.

well, after living in America for a couple years, I can say that the ratio of corrupt(ish) cops are 1:5 with or without the government =\.

Kinda off-topic about cops, but:
Every day, there's a story in this dorm about how a cop did something to offend them even though they've done nothing wrong.
I've had one run-in with a cop, but that was when I was stopped (while they were checking driving passers-by for ID's near a bar). Coincidentally, I left my wallet back at home (which was about 7 km away), but he said that it was late and cold outside, so he gave me a "no-license ticket." I had to go to court some months later and waste a few hours of my morning (I also had to skip a class by the way) just to have my charge dismissed.

In Tokyo (and Kyoto after I moved), I learned to drive but never needed to...

haven't heard anything? pretty much over? so Ukraine did not just call all its military to leave Crimea and there was not a right-wing leader of the protests shot and killed and the air base in Crimea was not taken over and the EU and U.S are completely ignoring everything that's going on.

Well Ukraine is now a "government" which makes it not protesting taking "military action" or whatever -.- and about Crimea, well it's all in the black there, it has probably something to do with Russia, but I don't see how it comes under "riots" only this is more than that, which makes the title of this thread misleading, that's what I'm saying -.-

well, i searched for the web for any video of this incident but couldn't find any. I did find pictures though. There has been some unrest going on in Chile where students from different universities have taken some streets in the city of Valparaiso and there have been confirmed clashes between law enforcement groups and the students.

It was a race war (Muslims/ people from Pakistan and Caucasian/white English) HOWEVER it was nothing compared to the ones we had in 1999-2003 they were really bad

(basically large scale fighting/riots white V.S Pakistan and the police in the middle)
