Riots are rare in Ruridova, but riot police are allowed to use billyclubs, barricades, and pepper spray to calm the populace only if the protesters attack first. Typically the government looks at what the protesters ar eprotesting, and, if possible, acts on it.

our police have only ever sucessfully dispersed one riot and that was pretty much by accident. popular current strategies include......

waiting for it to rain.
waiting till theres something good on the telly.
blaming the military for not helping.
letting the free market solve it.
literally flooding the streets.
not turning up.
joining in.

Its pretty simple: We don't.

Unless the rioting group tries to hurt or kill non-rioting passerby's, the police do nothing in the face of a riot.

If rioters DO attempt to hurt non-rioting pedestrians, the police will protect them with a hail of 7.62x54mm bullets.
That is the only anti-rioting condition.

Tear down monuments? Fine. Destroy public property? OK, but taxes get a brief hike to compensate. Try to kill the leader currently in power? Thats going a bit far, so the leader's private protection force will take up defensive positions at his living space. But try to hurt other citizens, and the police will get aggresive. Period.

The Torroccan Military Police Brigade deals with riots at first with non-lethal measures. Should the riots escalate, they can disperse the crowd with tear gas, batons, rubber bullets, etc. Should this fail and innocents are harmed in any way, shape or form, the rioters will be fired upon.

Generally, most protests are peaceful, and most protestors respect the law. If, however, a protest does turn into a riot, police are generally able to handle it themselves. Basically, police fire tear gas into crowds, while charging suspected ring leaders and dragging them away. Pretty standard tactics.

Riots are difficult to start unexpectedly in Kusthet, due to public gatherings requiring a permit, and being restricted to certain areas of the nation's cities and towns. Peaceful demonstrations are provided with security by Kusthet Federal Police. Should the gathering turn violent, TRG will be called in for a quick response to put down the rioters by force if necessary, making heavy use of beanbag and other less-lethal munitions.

If the riot occurs elsewhere, as the result of a sporting match, or spontaneous event, then TRG will isolate the area and disperse the crowd with tear gas and flashbangs with a quick, mechanical efficiency. Or as close to it as they're able. Escalation is met with lethal force, and then military involvement if the police are proven incapable.

We shoot the most aggressive ones, take the rest, and publicly execute them as examples. And it always works, because after that there are no more riots.

we send in a small police force of ten members of the wolf brigade. usually it only about ten seconds for the riot to end. and another 15 minutes to clean up. wolf brigade fires for ten seconds rubber rounds at the crowd from mg-42. and 2 live pistol shots in the air. if it gets ugly. live rounds are used.

We usually don't have riots. We have peaceful demonstrations, which we do not intervene with, but we never have riots. If we did, we would use our police to protect people not involved in the demonstration as well as property that could cost us hundreds of thousands of jarkas to repair. The police will only be allowed to attack as a defensive retaliation to an attack from rioters

We try and break them up before they reach the riot stage by verbally ordering them to disperse, giving them thirty minutes to two hours depending on the size of the gathering, then using tear gas, rubber bullets, and other less-than-lethal measures. This is usually enough to disband a mob of light-hearted "rebels" or sports hooligans.

Once they start throwing shit at police and becoming violent, we deal with them like any other violent criminal. That is, with electrobatons, demands of surrender, and if they're still violent, with the business end of an MP7, though riots often call for the local police's AH-1Z Vipers and heavy equipment.

The idea behind GWO riot management is to remove every innocent person possible, then either capture or kill the entirety of the rioters... we don't let them maintain their freedom after the incident. They've committed acts of violence against the State, their fellow Citizens, and the Rule of Law. We utilize the Civil Control System to lock them in their Sectors for law enforcement to wipe up. However, civilian casualties are unacceptable. That's why we give extraordinary lengths of time for them to evacuate the area.

Extremely bad riots are, of course, dealt with by the Army. You're thoroughly fucked if you're participating in a riot that bad, as they're not even considered riots but revolutions against the power of the State.

not bad we use the rubber after the 2 gunshot into the air to attempt to frighten them into disperse after 10-60 minuttes depending on size we shoot rubber on the brave rioters then if violence lead is let losse.

CS gas is deployed almost immediately, along with batons, beanbag rounds, water cannons, and attack dogs.

New sound weapons, like the Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) are also in use to disperse rioters.

Riot police first try and cordon off rioters and verbally tell people to leave, if that fails tear gas is fired into crowds in order to disperse them. If rioters become violent with officers then police will rush rioters and move them with force.

conditions leading to rioting are so extremely unlikely in cameroi culture as to make this a total non-issue. nor, our national animal being what they are, would police actually be required to do so.
we do have wide area stunners, that would work if ever needed. riots, as i understand the concept, would require a large number of people in nearly the same place at the same time. in cameroi its rare to get twenty percent of the population to show up for feast. we're sort of, you know, at least half of us anyway, somewhat inclined to be hermits.

Most of times we just don't disperse them. And, most of times they don't do anything that deserves to start repression. But if some day they begin to use weapons, or to damage seriously public property, Uzbirn army will control the situation, just like in Aloyahol-Néppolens occupied territories.

We haven't had a riot in over 500 years.

Back then, some citizens were very angry about the implementation of the Raid Tax and decided it would be a good idea to protest and tear up the capitol city. The government decided it was a better idea to turn those rebels into burnt-up scrap. It sent in the military, which did just that. The operation was very public and very meticulous. No rioters, or even peaceful protesters, were allowed to escape.

Unlike humans, who forget the maxim "insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results," our people are logical enough to realize that if they riot, they will face the same fate as those scum from half a millennium ago. Therefore we have had no further riots.
No war RPs; no open RPs.

With the minimal force necessary to restore order.

Both of those words are very important.

In any event, Front Rangers don't have much of a cultural inclination toward rioting. Economic and political stability has been quite helpful in that regard.
