Pictures of Riot Control Training in Belize


It’s not that the U.S. military trains for this, which is necessary and recommendable. It’s not that they seem to enjoy it so much, which is stupidly understandable. It’s that they are often being trained to detain and dispel rioters that are engaging in legally protected activities. Some of the situations include environmental protesters holding signs that say Save the Halibut and Stop the Violence, as well as antiwar protesters holding signs with peace symbols and No more war written on them.

The following set of pictures from a training exercise for the military of Belize shows protesters holding signs that read Freedom 2 Worship, "WE DEMAND MORE MONEY" and No More Taxes.
