So this video has been going around the web. I’m all for speaking up and protesting when necessary, but the coverage of police using tear gas and other tactics to control the crowds has been a bit one-sided.
And I like to hear both sides.
“The Police used a limited amount of tear gas for a small area as a defense against protesters who were throwing various objects at Police Officers as they approached the area. The objects included glass bottles, rocks, pots, pans, kitchen utensils and plates at Police Officers. In addition, the protesters sprayed a Fire Extinguisher on Police Officers.”
