    they have stuff quite a bit more potent than tear gas.  For example, that "non-lethal knockout gas" that kills half the people it is used on.

    •  When you have a couple hundred thousand people (2+ / 0-)

      in the street it simply isn't a matter of crowd control like it is with smaller numbers. If there were really a mass movement of millions of people there would be no way to stop the protests.

      The stuff in Russia? They don't use that in the US that I know of.

        is not explicitly banned by name like say, BZ is.  And yes, I mean that stuff in Russia, I see no reason why it wouldn't be as effective on a crowd of tens of thousands assuming a decent dispersal system (crop dusters?  old mothballed VX rockets?).
