    One of our NCO's was a Puerto Rican who took his mask off and spoke to us in his normal manner. He convinced all of us that he hadn't started the gas yet. We all thought it was the banana oil. When we took off our masks and got a snoot full, I thought I was gonna die. He had been gassed so many times that it had no effect on him. :eek:

    Exactly. I suspect that most of those protesters were licking their lips and comparing jalapeno to habanero after they were sprayed. :D

    When you watch that YouTube of the pinheads getting sprayed, a lot of them barely moved!
    This is getting blown out of proportion but that is hardly unexpected.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Actually, I think you guys are on the right track. I honestly believe that they prep themselves for this which I find comical. Like I said in another thread, if they'd expend the same energy in prepping for this nonsense int making something of themselves, they'd actually end up being somebody.

    All the pepper spray did was inflict pain, what is the point of that?
    The point was to get them to get up off their lazy asses and move themselves without the police having to drag them all away like unweildy luggage.

    Adam, if the police had gone straight to dragging the stinky ones away, he would bitch about police brutality.

    I know. Wee Wee's a liberal. If a liberal didn't have something to whine about, they'd explode.

    Another dangerous, violent, wild protester forcing the police to use force to stop the mayhem.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Since we don't see the person who is shot, we have no way of knowing what they were doing. They could have been holding a Molotov cocktail or a firearm. Again, you fail.
