And even if the police wanted to teach just dealing with mankind, to be calm, informed of the consequences. “I can clear out,” said Patrick Roijens. “These are the things that will not be able to do.

Our people are asking questions just for clarity, so that they have a good understanding of how they should act, and how far they can go. To clarify, it is not, so the officers on the ground, often on the spot, to improvise, and chasing and running.”
