The heaving mass of people pushed and hurled abuse at the front line
of the riot police. There were hundreds of them, some of them genuine,
protesting for something they feel is right, however, others just want
trouble. The police know that they can only strive to prevent a
disaster, they cannot stop one, only contain it and the problem is
that the rioters know this too. They also know that the police cannot
kill them or even harm them, their only weapon is arrest.
The wave of pushing against the police teams shields drones on and on
gradually getting larger and more powerful. The police officers faces
are etched with fear as they attempt to hold back the swarm of people.
Their attempts were failing, they were becoming tired and
sub-consciously hurt by the comments being fired at them. It wouldn't
be long until their wall of resistance would be smashed.
Suddenly, in the corner of the team commander's eye through his grid
locked riot helmet he could just see one of his men fall to the ground
as the rioters penetrated the line. This was the signal to the
rioters, chaos broke out immediately, action had to be taken. Everyone
began fighting each other, vandalising property and attacking the
police. The police were vastly outnumbered and had to think quickly.
Re-enforcements ran into action attempting to push the rioters back
out and arrest the offenders. Police vans were constantly escorting
arrested rioters to the police station.
Overhead, a helicopter surveyed the riot searching for instigators and
known criminals so as to alert the troops below.
"Hotel Echo Lima India to ground patrol, main instigator and drugs
dealer has been spotted" crackled the pilot into the commanders
earpiece "we will put her in the spotlight and monitor on CCTV, she
will not escape" informed the pilot.
"Good job, do not let her out of your sight, over and out."
"Over and out" The crackling transmission ended and the commander's
attention was switched back to trying to withhold the rioters
persistence. This would be a long struggle.
The spotlight beamed down on the instigator as if she had been
summoned by the Gods. Instantly, she looked up to see who or what had
singled her out from the hectic squabble around her. Immediately she
ducked and scurried through the hustling crowd seeking a place to
hide. There weren't that many to choose from, the chopper had a great
advantage as it could see where she was running. There were two
options, she could either make a run for it and try to escape which
would be hard as the helicopter had the upper hand or she could hide
in an alley just opposite her.
Her mind was quickly made up; she would run to the dark alley, she
figured it was the best option.
"She's in my sight we cannot loose her every move is being recorded,"
