I'm guessing that maybe there was a mix? A few pics of canisters coming through on twitter and one is definitely smoke:

twitter.com...

that's CS smoke.
CS is tear gas.


Thank you! Was just reading up on that here: en.wikipedia.org...

Cute play on words for them then for sure. It's just "smoke". CS is the important part of that canister.

A google search shows that is a riot control agent from the combined tactile systems company.
From what I gather from the listing it CN tear gas CS riot control agent, and inert white smoke.

So that leads me to believe that it wouldn't be listed that way if CN was just plain smoke
so there was some sort other chemical in it.

Here is the information I found
CTS manufactures a complete line of smoke cartridges. All our cartridge cases are made of aluminum alloy, not
plastic. Single projectile cartridges in long and short ranges as well as multiple projectile versions are available in
CN tear agent, CS riot control agent, and inert white smoke for screening and training purposes. Multiple projectile
models contain 3 or 5 projectiles. The single projectile and three projectile models are 4.8" long. The five projectile
models are 8" long. These cartridges can be launched from our TL-1 launcher as well as from all current 1.5"
gas guns. The stepped rim at the cartridge base allows the 4.8" models to be fired from the U.S. M203 40mm
grenade launcher as well. All models can be fired from an M79 type launcher such as our TGL-1.

CS smoke sounds like a mixture of both to me, maybe I'm wrong tho

CS Gas

The compound 2-chlorobenzalmalononitrile (also called o-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile) (chemical formula: C10H5ClN2), a cyanocarbon, is the defining component of a tear gas commonly referred to as CS gas, which is used as a riot control agent. CS gas is an aerosol of a volatile solvent (a substance that dissolves other active substances and that easily evaporates) and 2-chlorobenzalmalononitrile, which is a solid compound at room temperature. CS gas is generally accepted as being non-lethal. It was discovered by two Americans, Ben Corson and Roger Stoughton, at Middlebury College in 1928, and the chemical's name is derived from the first letters of the scientists' surnames.

Ok so just as I thought, see the 'cs' that means your dealing with tear gas plain and simple, thanks

I just heard that they are about to hold a press conference.

This should be interesting.

From where and what news source?

Fox news just reported that 'protesters' were seen with guns before the gunshots, that the 'protesters' were told by someone that they could come back tomorrow and protest. The 'protesters' responded, "There is no tomorrow." Soon after those 'protesters' began shooting at police. Police returned fire.

I think they used the term 'protesters' too loosely, but I guess that explains at least some of the gunshots.

I don't know anymore, that's just what they just reported.

Nice thanks for that post..

What is tear gas? The most commonly used tear gas contains the chemical agent 2- chlorobenzaldene malononitrile (CS). Despite its name, tear gas is not a gas, but an aerosol. CS is solid at room temperature and mixed with liquid or gas dispersal agents when used as a weapon designed to activate pain-sensing nerves. Early forms of the tear gas were first used in World War I, both by France and Germany.

Source. Gas or Smoke CS type.
CS Smoke, is that not the fancy name for Tear gas?

CNN confirmed that is was SMOKE, it is CS "smoke"
They are lying by omission.


Many types of tear gas and other riot control agents have been produced with effects ranging from mild tearing of the eyes to immediate vomiting and prostration. CN and CS are the most widely used and known, but around 15 different types of tear gas have been developed worldwide e.g., adamsite or bromoacetone, CNB, and CNC. CS has become the most popular due to its strong effect and lack of toxicity in comparison with other similar chemical agents. The effect of CS on a person will depend on whether it is packaged as a solution or used as an aerosol. The size of solution droplets and the size of the CS particulates after evaporation are factors determining its effect on the human body.[9] The chemical reacts with moisture on the skin and in the eyes, causing a burning sensation and the immediate forceful and uncontrollable shutting of the eyes. Effects usually include tears streaming from the eyes, profuse coughing, exceptional nasal discharge that is full of mucus, burning in the eyes, eyelids, nose and throat areas, disorientation, dizziness and restricted breathing. It will also burn the skin where sweaty and/or sunburned. In highly concentrated doses it can also induce severe coughing and vomiting. Almost all of the immediate effects wear off within an hour (such as exceptional nasal discharge and profuse coughing), although the feeling of burning and highly irritated skin may persist for hours. Affected clothing will need to be washed several times or thrown away.

I just saw this come up on HuffPo's Live Blog:


Today 2:59 AM EDT
CONFIRMED: Tear Gas Used
MSNBC confirmed with police that some tear gas was used on Ferguson curfew-breakers.

KMOV also reported the police confirmation. After speaking with Missouri Highway Patrol, tear gas was fired following smoke bombs.
Source

So they used both according to that. Hmm...

That is the canister from the Vice footage from what I can tell. Here's another one of the same canister on the ground in the same position as what was seen in the Vice footage, iirc. The larger image was tweeted by Skip LaCombe who is down in Ferguson for The Blaze.

This one is from Alice Speri from Vice. It's the same canister as in the footage. I seem to recall her taking a picture of it on the stream.

I think that “smoke” is the dispersion method. It can also be sprayed as an aerosol, etc...

It was a comment made by a reporter on the local Fox livestream. He said that he was talking to someone with the PD and that they should move to a specific location for the press conference.

If this is true ( and I do not doubt you), then, holy crap.

This just leveled up, folks.

Okay MHP/CNN, escort Antonio French back to the press area and in front of the camera again - to retract his testimonial and to keep everyone calm again...

There was also a lady that said that the group was out of Chicago and was not the protestors of the local area.
That was from the vice feed
