A Pittsburgh police officer shot a freshmen University of Pittsburgh student in the face with some sort of non-lethal projectile, and I was caught in the situation after police teargassed me while I was trying to help the student. Tear gas was deployed on the dormitory patios, blocking one of the only entrances police hadn't physically blocked.

What I find most disturbing is the amount of relatively new members coming out all over the place to say all these G-20 videos are fake... Never before have I heard so many crys of foul... And us older members KNOW that if anything where hoax the ATS team would be all over it.
So what is with the amount of people crying fake to these videos and siding with the police brutality? Since when is it acceptable to use LRAD weapons and tear gas to suppress a meager protest. It is not like this protest had the same numbers as the 9/12 rallies or the protests of previous G-8 or other G-20 meetings... This was a smaller protest than normal..
But like normal folks got beat and hurt over police thugery and more and more I see folks saying that we need their side of the story or that the protestors deserved it or worst of all That video is Fake!
I see no hoax tag.... I doubt its fake.
