It was pepper spray.
Military, grizzly, civilian or kid grade makes no diff it was just pepper spray it was not mace, CN or CS and it was not teargas .

If it wasn't so weak they would not have to get them to lift their faces by pulling on their shirts for it to be effective.
red dye is added for later identification of the offenders.

If they used mace or Cn it would have been over with the first squirt.

The police don't have to wrestle with you to get you to comply.
They used nonviolent force.

ps I have been sprayed with pepper spray and I have had the opportunity to experience CN, CS and teargas and believe me pepper spray is like water in compression.

So if a cop tells you to move along and you dont, is that realy any different then a cop telling you to stop and you dont?

Do those opposed to this action beleive they should just keep driving when the blues come on?

I guess when they turned firehoses on African American protestors, since it was water, it was nonviolent force also.....

Sad, truly sad post.

I could not disagree with you more.

These morons were asked to leave the sidewalk MANY times and were told they would be sprayed. They didn't move, that in essence is them giving the police permission to spray them. Next time, they will do what the police tell them to.

I disagree with you. Force should not be used when you can either move them one at a time, or arrest them without violence.

Using force, lethal or not, without provocation is not acceptable, and most Americans will disagree with your position on that.

Sitting is not provocation

Really, you couldn't walk around them?

They weren't preventing anyone from going to work, or make a living, or walk down a sidewalk. They may have made you walk 30 yards out of your way, but you could still get there.

I could not disagree with you more. Your quote

"bla bla bla" says it all. You disagree with their message, so you don't care if they are violated. Sad.
