Assault And Pepper | Wizbang

Assault And Pepper | Wizbang

Some key points here:

– The officers informed the protesters that they were about to start pepper spraying, and the protesters were cool with that.

– The officers detained several protesters at the outset.

– The crowd didn’t like that, started demanding the officers release them, and surrounded the officers.

No, the protesters weren’t being aggressive. But they weren’t exactly passive, either — they were pulling the classic passive-aggressive move. They were doing all they could to piss off the officers without provoking them.

I still stand by my earlier argument: of all their options, they took the least worst one.
