Beer riot water cannon

  [vote for,

Troublesome protestors causing problems for your government?

Normal water cannon not cutting it?

Well use any excess/cheapest liquor you can find off brewers, and use it to power your water riot cannon.

It will get them too drunk to do anything! And if they don't fall into the ploy of drinking it, well they are at least a bit more stickier and wet. (You also help to get rid of excess alcohol that are pushing price down too much for farmers, helping to keep prices high! Viva la Capitalism! )

       Bread and circus => beer and porno. Porno can be projected onto screens on buildingtops, or the undersurface of a large crowd control blimp.

       So then a typical Friday night would involve getting together with some friends, finding a comfortable bit of public land... and staging a riot ?   

       I'm not sure if I want to bun this or not.

       Wouldn't this just result in mass "demonstrations" every Friday/Saturday night after the pubs call last orders so revellers can get themselves some free booze? "I love you, riotpoliceman... You're my best mate, you are..."

       This would be exceptionally effective agains Muslims and Methodists. Or it might just make them more angry. You'd have to try it to find out. [+]

       Well, a lot of homebrewing kits tell you to use gelatine as a fining.

       The use of the water cannon as one of many tools to disperse (or merely control) a mob is to give some ‘sting’. The last thing we need is a bunch of drunk angry protesters likely to do something (even more) stupid.   

       Still, I can't bring myself to fishbone this idea []

       The state should use all the confiscated drugs they possess to subdue crows with billowing streams of smoke.

       Oops. That's a mistake, I obviously meant ravens.

       //Oops. That's a mistake, I obviously meant ravens// What is it with this anti-corvid prejudice these days?

       It started with the laws against jaywalking, and spiraled down from there.

       This idea presents a means for sperarating protestors based on their integrity.   

       Those who follow the beer cannon are clearly not dedicated to the cause and could easily be led off 'pied piper' style to a place where they may safely wallow in their own crapulence.   

       It would be interesting to see how much rioting occurred among the remaining protestors.

       The goal is free beer.

       Seems to me like an attempt to patent a natural phenomenon - the well known Beer Volcano [link].
