Riots Against Police Increase Worldwide, Mexican Police Offer Doused and Set on Fire



Do not read any further if you do not want to see some disturbing content.  

If you thought riots and protests against police were occuring only in the United States, you'd be wrong.  

Mexico and Europe are dealing with their own riots and they are very serious.

Below is a video from The Telegraph where a rioter douses a police man with flammable liquid and then lights him on fire.

Absolutely horrific.  

From the video description:

A police officer is set alight by a protester during demonstrations over the death of a man in police custody in Mexico.

The incident took place during protests in the city of Guadalajara, in the state of Jalisco, as locals gathered to ask for justice in the case of Giovanni Lopez, 30, who died after his arrest.

In the video, recorded by journalist Mario Marlo, officers in helmets can be seen facing up to protesters when one of the officers gets onto his motorbike.

A protester then runs up behind him and pours flammable liquid onto the officer before setting him alight.

The officer goes up in flames along with the seat of his bike and he falls to the ground.

The Governor of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro, confirmed that the burnt officer was injured in the protest along with five other officers.

Twenty-six people were arrested while three patrol cars were reportedly burnt out.
