he US may be celebrating the HFT-rigged, Fed-manipulated S&P500 hitting Goldman's year end target of 1900 8 months early, but China has other concerns. Such as this photo series, courtesy of NYT's Chris Buckley, showing police in Shenzhen in full riot gear, training for what many say is inevitable: a working-class insurrection, or as Ifeng.com calls, it "emergency disposal operations."

Via Ifeng.com, captions google translated:

May 11, heavy rain, the Shenzhen Municipal Public Security Bureau carried out emergency disposal operations training activities. Participating in the training team for a variety of different emergencies riot synthesis disposal training.

"Demonstrators" prepare to impact SWAT.

Or, it is just training. why have riot police if you don’t train them?

Same reason Dept. of Homeland Security needs 2 billion rounds of ammunition, I guess.

Somewhere Eric Holder is looking at these photos and getting ideas.

Communist regimes have already murdered 200+ million of their own citizens in the past 114 years. I bet the Butchers of Beijing can make that look like chump change when they put their minds to it.

And the U.S. ruling class will be taking notes.

We did similar training in the Marine Corps in the early 70's.

Difference was, the rioters were liberal/progressive hippy types.

Gee... Cops the world over just LOVE those great Gestapo black BDUs, don’t they... they’re just so.... macho...

Well... the ones in Ukraine DID have that nice, fashionable blue urban camo... didn’t clash with their shoes or purses... they only “clashed” with the protestors...

(yeah... I know... you don’t have to say it...)

China is different now. It becomes a bit harder to do once the people know it is coming.

Another big difference...

No flaming bottles of gasoline are raining down on the ChiComs trainees from the “protestors”.

No riot shield in the world is gonna stop a bucket of gasoline being thrown on you.

Just sayin’....

Elites milking the working class, then throwing their worn-out, fleeced carcasses in a ditch...or turning them into edible green crackers.

Thank G d that's never happened, or ever will happen in America. /s

I went through Basic Combat Training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri in 1978. I was just about the only Regular Army trainee in my company, most were Kentucky and Indiana National Guardsmen. They spent several weekends in this kind of training while I washed dishes in the mess hall in their stead. Nothing new.

Just as long as the police are loyal to the government, everything works out fine. However, you don’t find out if they’re loyal or not until an actual insurrection.

One reason why when they raided Ten an Men Square in 1989, they used soldiers from the provinces, instead of local troops.

I was in Hong Kong a couple of months ago and happened upon some kind of political rally/protest,featuring many people,in a park near the Victoria Peak tram.Don't know what it was about...all the chants and placards were in Chinese...but the people seemed to be angry.There were a number of cops nearby...on foot,in cars and on motorcycles.I didn't see any threatening behavior on the part of the cops or the crowd.I asked one of the cops where the tram was and he told me but it was obvious that he had more important things on his mind.

Of course Hong Kong,technically speaking at least,has a very different set of laws,different police and different courts than does Mainland China.

Workers rioting is okay and encouraged before the revolution, never after.

I suspect the Red Chinese government is expecting trouble because they’ve already begun an economic descent (as jobs head further south to Burma, Malaysia, and such). Those Chinese that worked 16 hour days for a couple of years expecting to be able to buy things are mighty upset...

Except that some people in black robes seem to think that the right to be armed doesn't extend beyond the front-door — and far too many people offer these shits unwarranted deference.
