  •  I believe IT is lethal (7+ / 0-)

    and I will say why. People with COPD or breathing problems that get hit who want to express their support could acutally die from this stuff.  Is there anyway Oxygen could be on hand for these protests?  To administer oxygen immediately?  Another thing....PTSD is deadly.  The stress takes a wear on a body and it denies the body rest.  
    To me cops who use this stuff are not serving and protecting ....they are shilling and projecting.

    •  They are legally bound to do so in OPD rules (6+ / 0-)

      and training after they administer gas to a crowd or individual. They are required to offer medical assistance. None I mean NONE of which was offered by the OPD down there. Even when Olsen was being carried about 10 feet from them they did nothing.
