  • Brussels (Belgium) FD protests: Cops eat foam.

    Due to the political mess that Belgium is the firefighters at Brussels FD can't be promoted. Some off them should be earning up to $400/month more then now.

    Anyway here's a blog with some pictures:

    And here is a news site with some pictures and if you scroll down a bit you'll find a video which is worth watching imo.

    In the end nobody got hurt and the FD gave the cops some fruit and one FF tried to be a gentleman with a female cop.

    Thanks for sharing. I find it interesting that firefighters there get to protest their differences using apparatus and equipment from the department, lighting fires in the middle of the street, and making a mess out of what looked like a couple of city blocks.
    Over here we would be arrested.

      And shooting foam at the cops? Over here that would get you shot.

        The cops should've expected to get foamed. It's almost a given if a FD protests.

        Also if the cops were to use violence then things would errupt into riots, which happend in Paris (France) a couple of years ago:

          Here, the act of blocking a road, setting a bonfire and hosing down a bunch of cops, would be considered riotous. There would also be charges of misuse of public safety property, and whatever else they could tack on.
