Another tear filled violent night and at the end despite a lack of footage or eyewitness testimony on the many streams or from our many streamers police claim they were the victims of Molotov cocktails. When questioned how many police officers were allegedly harmed the propaganda spokesperson claimed a number as low as two without giving names or any specifics. So because two or three police officers were allegedly harmed by these invisible bottles, crowds of people were indiscriminately tear gassed and shot with rubber bullets. For years I have said on air that you would become the Palestinians one day and with the LRAD blasting in peoples ears and other tyrannical tactics being employed on the people, I would say that day has now come.
The fact that one of the shots struck the top of Brown’s head, Gray said, was significant.
“To have a shot that’s at a 90-degree angle from the top of his skull to the bottom of his chin, almost vertical, that sounds like an officer standing over him,” Gray said.
Baden said his examination suggested that none of the six bullets was fired at point-blank range, but all were fired from at least one to two feet away.
Protesters held their hands aloft, chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot,” and police began lobbing smoke canisters and tear gas toward the marchers as they neared the command post and refused to back down.
Protesters fled at first, then held their ground in the middle of the street; a few protesters grabbed smoke canisters from the street and hurled them back at police. Large numbers of people found themselves unable to flee as police advanced in half a dozen military vehicles because the street was blocked by the crowd behind them.
“It’s unbelievable. This is something you would see on TV in a third-world country. Tear gas — I’ve never seen it escalate to that point,” said Martin McDonald, 38, a truck driver from the town of Florissant who joined the protests for the first time on Sunday.
