Yes absolutely. Mumbai is fast becoming a place where anyone and everyone can take law and order for a ride.
Mumbai police have done an absolutely correct job. they have sent acoss a message that NONSENSE from any goondas from any other state will not be tolerated. GOOD JOB DONE.

If this is made as a rule in every instant then peace will prevail. But the police have been selective which is a crime.

Yes, But with the same logic police should shoot Raj Thakrey - He is more harmful than Rahul

Shooting a youth dead expresses complete failure of expertise in their duties for Mah. police. Every day the same kind of incidents [if you can think beyond thakeray's & U.P. Bihar etc] happen in Mumbai, and interestingly much of them are assisted by Mah. police itself. The question should rather be that 'is the angst or anger against Raj Thakre a natural and justified reaction', and ,'if it is then how should the marathis react'? By the way, to me it seems like none of the common marathi man is getting benefitted from the so called 'maratha manus' movement except that one individual not only fooling but dominating his very own society. Its good to get united but its rare to see people unite for a noble cause. It has been that for India in the past and will remain so, so being born in India and brought up in India, will take its toll.

No Police was wrong in shooting him down. He was not a goonda unlike Raj thackrey. If police want do something they should put this raj behind bars and subject him to third degree. People like Raj think Mumbai unke baap ki hai. Mumbai kisi saale ke baap ki nahi hai & this should be very clear to one & all

Yes. Remember Russia's ex-pres. Putin's comment when terrorist held schoolchildren at ransom and started killing a few? He said "Nowthat u hv killed a few boys u don't deserve to live and t b negotiated with; Saare bachche mare to bhi mein tumhe nahin chchodungaa"

No, it was not right on the part of police to shoot rahul, as they should have attempted to compel him to surrender before the shoot out. but nothing was seen of that sort. if they had caught him red handed, much pride should have been scored by mumbai police rather than one sided opportunist behaviour to put some one down when others are roaming freely inspite of several blunders for political gains.

In this case Police were right in shooting. But the aim should always be shoot to disable so that the accused couyld be questioned and mastermind behind could be caught.
Police have a tendency to takr law into their own hands. If Police are allowed to do encounters without any checks, we come to situation as in Delhi wherein delhi Police shot a businessman in his car in Connaught Place!!
Police do not have a right to kill somebody.
