But a protestor who saw Robocop in action that day could say the exact same thing?

Dont know much about the court case and how it finished up, but found this here

Gardai are allowed use force and that includes batons if they feel they are going to be over powered. This force can be up to and including lethal force.

There are guidelines about not hitting people on the head but i presume in a riot situation its not always easy to aim when you are trying to protect yourself, your colleagues, the public and property from damage.

But is that not part of the "circus" of the courts which you described, that a man acting in such a repugnant, animalistic and dangerous way can escape punishment by the way you said an ordinary person can also sometimes sadly escape justice.
Or is it one rule for some....

Thread has diverged well off original topic of filming, and has turned into an oft repeated slugging match about reclaim the streets etc , so - it's closed.
