In Herador, there are two steps to riot control, Containment/dispersal, if this doesn't work the riot police move on to the intervention/arrests stage. Containment/dispersal involves containing the riot to a specific small location and then attempting to get the rioters to quietly disperse from the area and attempt a protest another time. The intervention/arrests stage is when the riot is contained but the rioters refuse to disperse, in this stage the Police will use less than lethal methods (hoses, tear gas, bean bag shot guns) to suppress the rioters then move in for arrests.

Riots occasionaly occur due to religious reasons are handled using non lethal electro stun batons, and water pumps. Just keep the Rioters in a single location instead of scattered.

Ready, aim, fire. Proceed to send in the Imperial Guard under the personal command of the Marshal of Luthoria to hunt down and arrest as many rioters that fled as possible, and fine them heavily.

for sensible riots like anti pony or anti capitalist then we largely ignore them unless they attack loyal mackonian property

if they are riots against the government then well this picture will explain ... 70910b.jpg ... 022052.jpg

Rioters have missiles fired at their positions. We do not have riots very often, last week, our nation was in a state of chaos. The rebels were killing many innocent civilians, and destroyed many buildings. We exterminated all rebels, with force. Now if we have any protests, we will fire missiles at the rioters positions.

Mounted police and cavalry with sabres rides into crowds striking left and right to shatter the main mass and attack any larger concentration of rioters as well as ride down anyone on larger streets followed by both normal peacekeepers and royal guardsmen that subdues the now shattered groups with batons and at rifle point at need be so that they van be taken to a court of law to decide if they should be punished and what their punishment should be.

Riots will almost always be dispersed by the State Army Policy Enforcers (instead of police we have divisions of the army called "Policy Enforcers" usually called Police or Polici for short).

Lethal force will most often be used, as will tanks or gas and any survivors will be arrested.

While protesting is legal, as long as there is permission and it is within a confined space, rioting (such as the Das Engel riots of 2009) is highly illegal and will usually result in the crowd being shot dead.

Once protesters employ violence, they stop being protesters and are considered group of mass criminals. Local police department requests aid from armed forces and uses every means in its disposal to arrest group of mass criminals - and yes it does include Main Battle tank, live bullets, attack helicopter etc.

Riots rarely happen, as all respect the words of our prophet, Heston:

GET YOUR FILTHY PAWS OFF....err, I mean, rioting and protesting are for the weak minded...

But when they do occur, we send a guy named Steve out in the midst of them with words of persuasion, such as, "C'mon guys....just don't riot". Sometimes he has to get stern with them, like the last time in which was like, "Alright fellas, if you don't stop, I'm not gonna show you this awesome magic trick I learned from youtube last night". Boy did he really wow them with his slight of hand!

....if it gets ugly (which it hasn't yet), he is authorized to use the ancient talisman passed down to us from Heston himself.......the mystical NRA membership card!!!!

It equips him with lots of guns, with infinite ammo! The only way to use it is by entering a "god mode" cheat!

Postby Sidhae » Sun Nov 06, 2011 7:00 am

Sidh riots are a rather rare occurrence in the Imperium - Sidhae are, in most cases, too civilized and law-abiding to lower themselves to the level of human savages with such activities. When they do take place, it is usually for a really good reason, such as gross incompetence and negligence by officials. The mere fact that a riot of Sidh citizens has occurred is usually enough to have an official responsible removed from office, and possibly further prosecuted for dereliction of duty.

According to the Urban Security textbooks, the rioters are first given one and final warning to cease, desist and disperse. If that fails, Urban Security is authorized to use deadly force (and are more than happy to oblige). Such harsh measures are taken to prevent damage to state property and show that such vile antisocial activities will not be tolerated. Citizens who take out to protest are well-aware of this, and so normally desist from vandalism and disperse upon Urban Security arrival - as mentioned before, it is often enough to achieve their goal of removing an unpopular/incompetent official merely by assembling to riot.

The overwhelming majority of riots in the Imperium are caused by humans, stirred up by extremist groups campaigning for human rights. Obviously, when dealing with these riots, Urban Security is not required to issue any warnings before opening fire. Sidh citizens too are encouraged to assemble and use deadly force to disperse these inferior scumbags.

Of course, a human riot too can and often does result in the official in charge of handling human affairs losing his office - it is an obvious sign of incompetence that the humans even dared to assemble for a riot. A good HAO (Human Affairs Officer) knows how to manage (read: terrorize) the human population into behaving, enough for them to never dare even consider an uprising, but not enough for them having nothing left to lose.
Proud National Socialist. Blaming everything on the liberals since 2000.

The world is full of criminal enterprises and terrorist organizations. The most successful ones are known as states.

Life is like surfing the Internet - there's no meaning or purpose, yet you don't really want to quit either.

The fact that slaves are allowed to elect their masters does not abolish the division in masters and slaves.

Don't try to deride me by calling me an "-ist" or "-phobe" unless you are referring to a medical condition or are trying to compliment me.

Socially-liberal capitalist democracy DOES NOT equate to free society.

Contrary to popular belief, National Socialists aren't racists. They simply hate their own race less than others.

Riot control uses tear gas and loudspeakers to try to disperse the rioters.Those who don't disperse are liable to get shot.

Small Shotguns, tasers, and a lot of armor. The Hastati are hired by businesses to protect their assets, and are also often hired by the councils of an Acerbic Hub to defend all territory. The Interior Hub in fact has various elite Hastati hired permanently. Hastati are managed by PHALANX INDUSTRIES Defense Branch.

If they fail, Triarii or Rorarii are called in. Rorarii are preferable, they will leave when told. Triarii might have to be shot. Or burned. Maybe both. They are not exactly the most moral or sane creatures...or moral at all. As such, they are sent to areas we expect not to get back anytime soon. Where they can abduct random people and not get us blamed for it.

Riot Police

^ To sum up the nation's Riot police, imagine this picture with a giant shield that reads "ROMANS 13:1-3".

    The difference between normal and riot police in TurtleShroom are as follows:
  • They do not wear robes, while normal police do.
  • Normal police in TurtleShroom are equipped with shotguns. Riot police in TurtleShroom are equipped with tear gas grenade launchers and are not armed. (Normal police assist the riot police by bearing arms for them.)
  • Obviously, riot police possess giant shields. These read "ROMANS 13:1-3" and are impenetrable by most types of guns a civillian can LEGALLY obtain.
  • Riot police carry a special cross staff as a symbol of their authority. If you've ever seen a Crucifer Staff, you've seen this.
    The purpose of the staff is obvious. It's a blunt weapon that can bludgeon rioters.

    That's right. Riot Police the fear of the Lord in you.

Riot Police? Their your normal police officer that takes a stroll down a neighborhood in the UWO. You must not know what life is like in the UWO. The Police wear Combat gear like Riot gear...there always heavily armed and also their are Armored Vehicles mostly Strykers or Grizzlys patrol the streets of most cities. Every citizen is use to it. Its been like that for years.

We use mounted police with batons to break up the riots and drive the fleeing rioters into a wall of police who arrest them. In closer urban enviroments we make usage of roadblocks to contain a riot while police helicopters fire teargas into crowds of rioters.

"We use directional ultrasonic emitters mounted on police vehicles. On low settings they cause nausea and loss of balance by disrupting inner ear equilibrium. Hard to riot when you are throwing up on your shoes and cannot walk three steps without falling down. On higher settings the emitters can actually rupture eardrums.
Either way it is quite easy for our regular police to roll up, blast the whole group of rioters with ultrasonics, then arrest them at a leisurely pace.

This assumes, of course, that said rioters are basically unarmed. If this is not the case, we use military riot control forces. Needless to say they do not use the non-lethal tactics the police tend to employ."

Rioting is generally uncommon in Skibereen, as the populace is by and large empowered in and of itself .
However on occasions where riots have occurred most are quelled by local citizenry, where this has not occurred Order Enforcement Officers utilize a variety of options, these options run the gambit of club, pepper spray, acoustic disruption(the use of noise), and dogs, all the way to lethal force.

Although unruly behavior is commonplace in Lancov, actual riots are rare, most people are willing to cooperate with legal authorities.

Riots are the responsibility of the Marshalcy, with backup from the Army as needed. The usual substances are deployed, armored constables arrest ringleaders, assault from the rioters is repaid with necessary force to protect life. Not really any different from most other nations, though we shy away from unnecessary brutality.
