The cops who are BEING TOLD that they have to disperse this crowd
are doing THERE JOB!
People started acting violently and throwing projectiles
at them. Police responded back with tear gas.

Peaceful protests are useless because they do absolutely nothing to solve anything because the authority doesn't listen and know they can still get away with whatever they're doing. The status quo is dug like a tick so the only way to accomplish anything is by force. Simple as that. People who want change but won't turn to force or violence are blind to the inevitable.
Look the the protesters were ORDERED to leave the park buy the Mayor and Police. They failed to comply and the police started moving in to push the people out of the park.
The anarchists in the group started throwing bottles and rocks at the police, hence the police responded with non-lethal weapons (tear gas and rubber bullets and rubber bullet grandees, and flash bangs).Granted under certain conditions non-lethal weapons can kill and cause serious injury but they are not designed to kill out right.
Yes the police in this video threw a flash bang at a group of protesters and yes there was an injured person among the crowd. They would have been better off leaving the man where he was and allowing the police to take him in to custody and then having EMS treat him.
Remember it is the duty and responsibly of the Police and Local Officials to maintain order.
The mayor pull there permit, after that the protesters should have packed it in and gone home and tried again another day.
Did the friggin cop say..."hey look at that Iraqi Vet, I know, how cool will I be to shoot this canister at his head." Is that how it played out in your...or anybody elses head that shares that belief with you?
