On the DNC - PROTESTORS PEPPER SPRAYED

Well, this is lovely (sarcasm).



More cops blasting people with pepper spray.

This was in Denver during the Democratic National Convention.

Here's an article about this in the Denver Post.

One of the things that I thought was the most ominous in this article is the subtext that protestors generally know that police are going to pepper spray them at some point during their activities. I don't know what they were doing, I don't know whether the protestors actually behaved in a threatening way or whatever, but it is frightening to me that police use pepper spray like this so frequently (and just google for something about police and pepper spray or go to youtube and there are plenty of videos with situations like this) that people expect it.

Look at that stream of spray coming out of that cop's spray gun. It's huge.
