Things are certainly out of hand in the United States, especially with all of the food processing plants burning down.
However, things could be much worse.
Over in the Netherlands, farmers are being shot at by the police.
Dutch police detained three protestors and shot at a tractor that broke from the line.
Police claim they only fired “warning shots” at the tractor.
They also claim there was an attempt to drive into police vehicles.
Nobody was hurt in the incident

The Associated Press reports on this scary situation:
Dutch police shot at a tractor during a heated night of farm protests and detained three demonstrators, the latest incident in a string of protests against government plans to cut pollutant emissions that many farmers fear would hurt their livelihoods.
Police in northern Friesland said Wednesday that no one was hurt in the incident that involved warning shots and direct targeting of a tractor that broke free from a line. Police said there was an attempt to drive into their vehicles and officers.

It’s hard to see in the video any sign of the tractor driving into police cars…
Shots fired in The Netherlands on driving farmers. No self-defence, this is just escalation on behalf of the Dutch ‘government’. True colours are all out. #boerenprotesten #politiegeweld #DutchFoodYourFood pic.twitter.com/ipzPyR1x9O
