If Necessary Shoot, But Use Rubber Bullets And Aim Below The Knee: Mangala

Minister of Finance and Media Mangala Samaraweera suggested to Cabinet today that if the planned protest by the Joint Opposition tomorrow (September 5) gets unruly and if there’s a threat of public property being damaged, the Police should not hesitate to shoot but they should use rubber bullets and aim below the knee.

Earlier IGP Pujith Jayasundara stated that necessary and not minimal force would be used to protect people and public property.

The Joint Opposition’s protest, ‘Janabalaya Kolambata’ (People’s Power to Colombo), will see thousands of people from all parts of the country coming to Colombo tomorrow, according to organizers. They have complained that the government, wary of a possible show of considerable force, has gone out of its way to make it difficult for the organizers to arrange transport.

    Hoooooooooooo, Yahaplanaya 5 -star democracy is overflowing!!!!!!!!!
    This is Mahinda’s March Protest, if you have forgotten. No policeman is dared to use teargas, water canons or bullets.
    Even when Mahinda organized Paada Yatra and Jana Gosha during President Premadasa’s terror era, his Police didn’t shoot with any bullets.
    Shame on you, Mangala shame on you.

            Lapatiyo,

            our people would easily get caught by Champawathies.

            See, how many of them have travelled to colombo for rice packets and some drinks today ?

            So, we dream of becoming an another Singpaore.. not politicians, but so long punnaku eating majority folks are part fo our populations, we need to face it.

            I thin Democracy should be banneed to the coutnries of our nature. We need brutal leaders to control this nation, but they shoudl never be Rajapakshes. They only focus on their pocket filling tactics.

            Native,

            Just remember, the 1983 riots were started by Tamils. Their leaders murdered Sinhala soldiers in Jaffna. The annual July commemorations never start by mentioning this fact. Subsequently, the Tamils leaders tried very hard to instigate riots by massacres of Sinhala villagers but they failed.
            Self promoting liberal peacenik, try not to forget what you Tamils are responsible for.

              “Just remember, the 1983 riots were started by Tamils. “

              Very well I trust you.
              The JVP killed many policemen.
              I see there was no riots against the the Sinhala people even though JVP killed roughly 209 – Security forces
              342 – Police personnel
              and 98 – Home guards

              And I believe some do gooders such as yourself risked your life and saved Tamils.

              “Self promoting liberal peacenik, try not to forget what you Tamils are responsible for.”

              I may be a liberal peacenik where did you get the idea that I was Tamil. Is it another of your lies? When you lie please don’t get caught.

              Are you still suffering from your holiday blue, paranoid and raged, frustrated because your holiday was ruined?

            Please get Dr Nimal Galapaththy to advise her on the dangers of STIs and how to protect herself from such diseases.

            Let Champa know what she has to carry with her all the time.
            Perhaps Dr Nimal Galapaththy could introduce Famidom to her.

          We as Sri Lankan will not allow a Chinese colonization or a Rajapaksa Criminal Fascist Government ever again.

            For your information, I have said many times the next President is not a Rajapaksa. Guaranteed. I hope that notion will be helpful to dispel certain fears.
            Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is different from other Rajapaksas. I have 3 memorable things in mind to do for the former President, through the next President whoever he is, so as he will never be forgotten as long as Sri Lanka exists.
            In 2015, 6.2 million people made him the second best. We will make sure it will never happen again. He will have the first and foremost place in the hearts and minds of people as long as he stays in active politics, possibly, with the Blessings of the Sacred Tooth Relic, another 12 years or more.

              So, You are now in superior position to decide who will be the next President. It is very simple to tell that Rajapakse’s are different. One is the white van expert (murder), other is 15% commission expert (bribe) and Mahinda is expert in bribing and drug dealing and acting (fake patriotism). We Srilankans will never forget for their crimes against humanity and violating the rule of law and justice.

                Of course the prediction is super simple.
                Mahinda can’t contest. Gotabhaya is not Mahinda. He has rivalry in the JO and another section of SLFPers don’t like him. There is no way he could win.
                The other one is Basil. I don’t want to waste my words. He can’t win. Even if Mahinda tells, his own supporters will not vote Basil.
                Chamal has less chances to win than both of them.
                Mahinda will most probably choose someone else in his camp whom he can trust and put his weight behind him.

          Getting inspired is human behavior. A poet would fell in love with a worthless flower’s beauty. A boy may die for his girl. The puny, invalid body cased Hawking’s soul flew beyond galaxies in search of imaginary black holes. Buddha and Ramakrishna were searching for the zero- zunum, Socrates or Valvular could not feel happy of what they learned. Alexander died with his unsatisfied thirst for victory. We saw Gandhi, Mandela, Lincoln…….sacrificed their life for the oppressed ones’ victory.
          A man traveled on the arranged bus and went to Colombo just like Water Buffaloes gather near the pond, drank beyond his capacity, not being able to eat the free parcel, but was lying on the Colombo’s reckless drivers driving congested roads as his aspirations were over (fulfilled). In his small world, anybody is a hero, as long as he gets his drink. Another man celebrated victory, because he had conquered this man for his private need. That man had gathered the biggest crowd.
          The earth rolled one more time. Darkness engulfed circled the Colombo town one more time. A man’s one day was killed. Tomorrow morning, in his village, the birds will be flying to jungle; they will bring back twigs to repair their wearing off nest. They will bring back seed and worms to feed back their hungry chicks. When the election comes, this man would not have an example to inspire him. His wife and children battered by the hardness of life may ask, daddy whom do you want to vote? He would just cross out a blank box, which reflex his mind. Then, once again, Lankawe will return back to 1931, when Britain mercilessly imposed the Universal Franchise on these defenseless poor orphans

      Corrupt MAHINDA MAMA is well over 70 years old. Despite his pitch black hair and mustache, the 8th World Wonder. Why doesn’t he retire with dignity? Like Blair, Obama, Carter, Bush or Clinton. After all, power-hungry MEDAMULANE MUTHTHA has already served 2 terms allowed by our constitution. He was roundly defeated by the people and kicked out of power twice. Do you think he is marching for our future? I think NOT. Is he out to secure his own BUTT? Not least as a security measure to avoid LENGTHY jail SENTENCES may be FOR HIS FAMILY?

    Mangala is the Master Mind of the UNP block of the the Y Government, which protects and nurtures the Elite, Anglican and Vellala Faction Leader Dr Ranil.
    Mangala neutralized the well heeled and well connected LTTE London Diaspora Faction.
    Mangala covered up the ex Best World Treasurere’s Corruption which caused Billions of damage to the Lankawe Public Purse.
    This “new one” of Mangala has a dual purpose.
    It is not only to protect Dr Ranil Today ,but Going forward in to the next Phase.
    Dr Ranil’s new Constitution is aimed at creating a Third ,in addition to Ethnic Homelands in the North and the East.
    It is the Homeland for the Elite, Anglicans , rich UNP Sinhala Buddhists and the Vellalas who do not migrate to their own Homeland.
    Dhammika Perera said the Colombo Elite will be on USD 12,500 in in 2020.
    When he was sitting with the other 9 in Colombo the other day , in Silk Blend Custom made Navy Blue Suits at the Shangrila, and offering advice to Dr Ranil on how to Turbo Charge their march to 2020, I thought this is it.
    When 5 Million are on Two and a Half Dollars a Day while Dr Ranil and his Elite bring in minimum USD 12,500 , there must be some super strategy to protect the latter from the rest, even in their own Homeland based in Colombo.
    Rubber Bullets below the Knees sounds very kind and considerate from this great self professed HR man Mangalan…
    In comparison to the threats from Dr Ranil’s Boy Pujitha in the Uniform, who says he will use more than what he needs.
    My only hope is these masses do not do anything silly to get even Mangaaln’s Rubber Bullets.
    Until the Two Elections are held….

    Never believe these crooks. Mangala protected the Old Royals by changing the foreign exchange act and sank the country down one within the 19 worlds’ worst fraudulent countries. Mangala had information of the Old Guy having deposited $18B in foreign bank accounts. That is why to protect one man Mangala destroyed the country’s Rupees value and the name by that Act. Last week he was parting in Old Royal’s home, there even as bad as Supramaniya Swami had visited. Ranil went to New York, had fight with UNSG in 2010 and threatened to withdraw from UNHRC this year to protect Old Guys. What a game these guys are playing. This game was discussed by Sumanthiran, Old Royals and UNP together to sabotage the Secret Solution and thus UNHRC’s resolution 30/1

      But you heard it from Mangalan….Is that correct?.
      May be Mangalan parrotmouthed what young Sene said..
      Wonder why his Uncle Dr Ranil didn’t send his F******CID to Arabia to collect it
      And pay off at least that USD 37 Million Dr Ranil’s Buddy paid to cancel the A 350s… Did Dr Ranil get anything out of it at least to donate to Srikotha for renovations?.
      What do you reckon mate……

    Bloody Fools, you Sri Lankans always think only the rogues, thieves and drug barons of SLFP, UNP and POHOTTUWA can govern the country. Come out the box bloody idiots of Sri Lanka and think about another alternative to thieves lead by Ranil, Mahinda and Maithripala. As long as you bloody fools keep on electing anyone from the gangs of above three bastards you are doomed as a nation. Haven’t you had enough of this mockery of fake democracy since 1953. You bloody idiots wake-up.

    It will be interesting to have a thought experiment on the March. If the roles of the two sides were reversed what could happen?

    .
    The March is treason as it is an attempt to overthrow a democratically elected government and the punishment for that is the death sentence.

    “If Necessary Shoot, But Use Rubber Bullets And Aim Below The Knee: Mangala”. Why not aim a little higher and get the testicles? That should prevent this vermin breeding at least for a generation.

    Stop taxing us for the money the Rajapaksas stole… recover all the Rajapaksas stolen monies. Put all the Rajapaksas Criminal on trial for treason and give them the death penalty or send the to the Hage for trial. We want the $18 billion brought back to Sri Lanka. Is our rupee devaluation because these criminals took this money out of our country!?

    The Cost: Someone calculated in a TV debate, the cost of the march as 5 crores, mainly for the buses, food parcels and the booze. This would most be on ready cash because the booze Mudlalis do not normally accept American Express. Where does MR get all this money? of course we all know from where. But where is it normally kept stashed up?
    .
    The release of so much money in such a short time in such a small area should throw up signs, like a fountain of water suddenly gushing up.
    .
    More is to come later as our Robber Baron changes gear.

    Mangala is certainly one of the better ministers in a spineless cabinet. Ranged against us the barbaric hordes of the Rajapaksas. So, this advice is justified.
    .
    Is President Sirisena off his rocker, though? More than forty months of doing nothing, and he now talks (again!) of the death penalty – just for vandalism this time.
    .
    Why haven’t you brought to book the master criminals? Do you really want guys like us to repeat all those names?

      This is just a trial run by medamulana meeharaka to make the stage for young womaniser prince namal to come to power through hook or by crook someday.

      “Mangala – More than forty months of doing nothing”???? Fiddlesticks!!!!
      In this period he has vastly added to the loot in the name of D – his brother and other close relatives. Just imagine. From the muddy paddy fields in Bata rubber slippers and an old rickety bicycle from a poor farmer’s family. After 3-4 decades in politics now owners of dozens of lucrative paddy mills, 4 star hotels, massive land/property
      in many parts of the country. Thank God for politics Gamarala would pray. Yet another once non-descript family now laying claim for the top mantle in the country making suckers of 22 millions near goats. That’s Srilanker of today for ya!!!

    Even rubber bullets kill.
    There will always be excuses for missing the ‘below-the-knee’ aim.
    Should not this advise have been given in the context of detainees getting killed (in encounter killings as well as escapee killings).

        I don’t think it is needed anybody circumvent to excuse Mangala. Yes he went to Old’s house. He will not go to Lipton Square. He is just nervous of his Old Pal coming back again. Didn’t Hirunika ask that who is going to protect them if Old Come back again?

    Mongol the idiot with a bird brain. Rubber bullets will bounce back and hit the remaining traces of manhood between your legs. Back in 1952/53 one of your erstwhile finance ministers even used lead bullets to mow down innocent protestors during Hartal, and he got back nationwide civil unrest as a result. Go on then, do what you threaten to do and see where your rubber bullets would lead you to. Politicians with no bloody brains, scum the whole lot.

    Whisky Madam got RDA to cut a big drain right across the Kandy Road. This was done today to delay or block the buses carrying MR’s clowns. But it failed. Whisky Madam is probably going to run to England. Namal Baba using Daisy Achchi’s gem stones to finance it. Horuwenuweng Horu. Ranil clueless; Sira perspiring profusely. They can never get people like that. But MR cannot win. This rally was a flop.

    Is the Finance Minister exceeding his mandate when talks of what should be done to protect public property? As long as he confines his request cum comment on the need to protect public property and the loss caused on damages to public property on previous occasions he is well within the limits. The rest is with the Police, which is supposed to be independent on paper. By now, what has happened has happened and is in the past. What happens if unexpectedly a grenade is thrown at the Police officers maintaining law and order? Are they yet expected to fire rubber bullets below the knee? Guidelines on how to deal with this kind of situation was made clear by a Commission that inquired into the Peradeniya undergrad Weerasooriya’s death, way back in 1970’s.

    Looks like the days of the King of Kurundupolu General
    Mangala Samarawwera is long gone. He now wants to
    shoot the people whom he cannot win over. Of course,
    the the order is to do so below the knee. He know that
    will not impede his hobbies.

    Mangala knows that some Very Important Protestors will make brief appearance. He did not wish any to get hurt.

    They do protect each other. Do they not?
