Re: Air Force chief: Test weapons on testy U.S. mobs
I was living in Seattle when the WTO riots broke out a few years ago.
I always thought it rather odd the police went straight for tear gas, pepper spray and rubber bullets to disperse the crowd.
It was November, rather chilly out, and just taking a firehose to the protestors would have been a less severe way of getting them to disperse.
Those riot cops acted like children with new toys they couldn't wait to use.
Same goes for this chap mentioned in the article.
