At the 30 sec. mark on the vid you posted...
Captain Johnson of the Hwy Patrol speaks about last night: "The situation first started... to deteriorate, with the shooting of a civilian. We
quickly responded with additional officers to get the victim to a safe place. This was followed by additional shots being fired at officers..."
Wow. Just wow. I saw the live feed, where the officers began advancing on the protesters in the street, firing tear gas canisters and rubber bullets.
The protesters became very agitated and some began to lob the gas canisters back towards the line of police cars, which were advancing on them. Then
the earsplitting sound-wave technology was directed at the crowd. Some time later, reporters on the scene quoted police scanner broadcasts that
someone had been shot.
Sooo... it looked to me like 'The situation first started... to deteriorate, with the line of police cars advancing on peaceful protesters, well
before the stated curfew, bombarding them with tear gas, rubber bullets and sound-wave technology with no stated provocation whatsoever.'
Just a side note... Captain Johnson appears to me, to be reading a prepared statement that he does not agree with. Just the look on his face and the
hesitation in his speech. He does not speak with conviction, IMO.
Thanks for sharing... S&F
