TURKISH RIOT POLICE FEAR WATER SHORTAGE MAY HAMPER THEIR WATER CANNON OPTIONS June 3, 2013Posted by feedthemoon in Uncategorized.
As weather forecasters are predicting another long hot, dry summer due to
Global Warming Climate Change, riot police have expressed concerns that they could be facing their own version of the infamous hosepipe ban.
– These scenes of light-hearted bank holiday crowd-control may soon be a thing of the past.
The gay abandon with which Turkish police recently blasted water at protestors in Istanbul may soon be curtailed due to water shortages.
‘As things stand, everyone has a damned good time’, commented Prime Minsiter Erdogan yesterday, at a hastily-convened and thankfully air-conditioned press conference: ‘-The police love firing them. and for many of the protestors, well, it gives them a bit of a chance to cool-off – it’s like the ultimate water-park really in that regard, especially on a hot, clammy day’. But in light of weather predictions of drought-like conditions ahead, he sounded an ominous warning bell: ‘I do worry that if they can’t use the water-cannons, the redundant vehicles will have to be utilised in other ways’.
‘I’m afraid frustrations may simply boil over and deprived of their anxiety-relieving water-sports, frustrated police officers may simply plough through the protestors with their redundant vehicles. rather like they did on Saturday, but on a much bigger scale.’
He did offer one light-hearted alternative to the impending water-shortage however:
‘Our friends in Israel use piss and sewage to soak the Palestinians, and to my knowledge there’s no shortage of that in Turkey’ he chuckled.
