I know you have been chided for this before, but I will echo the comments of others and state that I fail to see the humor in this situation.

All Americans should have the right to assemble and demonstrate peacefully without fear of physical harm. Did any of you know that tear gas is actually banned in military conflicts under chemical weapons? Yet the American government uses it on its own people. For shame!

I see humor in the hyperbole. Then again, maybe you're right. There is nothing funny about making political hay out of someone's misfortune.

I support the use of tear gas. What would you prefer? Rubber bullets? Bean bags? Clubs?

Seriously, though. It's a pretty damn useful non-lethal tool for crowd dispersal. Would we prefer physical contact between the riot police and the protestors?

Yeah, the police have to have something to use. Mobs are scary and can quickly get out of control. They're not something you want to let develop or take a chance with.

Let me ask you all, all of you, another question. Why is it that the police attack these encampments late at night? Why do they use the cover of darkness?

I will tell you. It is to keep the media from reporting on their methods. There aren't many reporters around at 2 AM. That is when attacks have occurred across the country from New York, Boston, San Francisco. They wait until everyone is asleep and then they attack. You haven't seen the full news story because the media outlets aren't around to report it.

Regarding the OP, someone definitely needs brain surgery, no doubt about that!

You're joking, right? I seriously doubt anyone had any expectations of keeping anything out of the news. It's 2011, son. That's virtually impossible.

Son? I don't appreciate the racist overtones.

It is a fact there will be less press coverage at 2AM in the morning compared to 2 in the afternoon. What part of that do you not agree with?
