I hate to snip as good of a post as yours, but this point makes my blood boil.. How is it unreasonable of the protestors do to this? If tear gas is such a mild, acceptable thing to have happen to you, then the police should just man up and take what they've been dishing out. Or if tear gas is so terrible that it being returned to sender is illegal, then it shouldn't have been brought into play in the first place..
Whats next, saying protesters are bad people for punting pineapple grenades back when the police start throwing those?

I cant believe people are sticking up for the police on this one, going to hit someone with a baton when they have tripped over, spraying pepper spray in peoples faces when they have complied with instructions, surrounding these people and not allowing them to move anywhere making the situation 10 times worse. These "tactics" that you are advocating are the same ones that killed an innocent news seller on his way back from work in london. Its just plain wrong.

what those police are doing is illegal
if you really want something to be done about this that video could be used as evidence in court though the police would probably just get a slap on the wrist

But even worse are the brain dead persons saying they see nothing wrong, or even condoning this. You dont deserve to be called a human being, you are nothing but a tool. A very, very pliable tool.

The thing that shocks me is people who are on youtube stating they hate these groups, stop crying you babies, etc.
That is some hitler trained forces acting with no regards to there families , friends, and fellow americans.
These people had the balls to stand up for our rights and got assaulted, while we sit back and talk #. CRAZY! what you gonna do when they come for you.

I think it's fine if the Police want to be pre-prepared before any untoward happening. Don't see any wrong in it truthfully.

It is said in the comments on YouTube that some of these people were throwing rocks and sticks at the cops all day. If this is true the cops were provoked into action. We are only getting one side of this story and cannot see the whole truth.
