Self immolation risk and mitigation

Siri Agrell of the Globe and Mail reports about a man who will self-immolate at the G20 – when the PM of India is here – to protest the 1984 Sikh genocide.

The Integrated Security Unit noted that their officers are trained to react to these sorts of things.

But I bet this is the actual reason the police have added the water cannon to their arsenal.  Talk about a mitigation strategy. Every time this dude tries to light a match, the cops are gonna hose him like he was on Wipeout!
