Don't give up Hong Kong. Don't let Pooh Bear win .
I can tell you from experience, that umbrellas arent gonna help as much as you think. Yes, they will avoid direct immediate contact, which is a big win, but now everything is covered in pepper spray. The fumes alone will choke you out. After a while, spray will be dripping off the umbrella and on to the people using them. And any part of you the spray touches WILL burn for about 45 min. I'd honestly rather be tazed than pepper sprayed again.
@aminalFacks, downvote bc you “know from experience” and activists are all attn whores or actors
@Gothem, I went to tech school for law and police science..... we had to take the OCAT course to qualify for pepper spray.... Upper Bucks Vocational Technical school, class 2011
@aminalFacks, (record scratch noise) What’s that now? ::reverses DV then walks away whistling::
@Gothem, I went to tech school for law enforcement. I got pepper sprayed so that I could get certified for pepper spray. They spray you in the face, then you have to run a course where you must pick up a firearm (fake gun known as a redman gun) while getting hit with sparring bags, point it at the "perp", use verbal commands to tell them to get on the ground and put their hands behind their back, handcuff them, then you can dump milk in your eyes which really doesn't help much. Burns for about 45 min. Be careful when you wash your hair afterwards as their may vary well be pepper spray in your hair and you'll get hit again.
@aminalFacks, I’d get the put your hands up part out then remember that they peppered me then just shoot:)
Perfect time to bring back trebuchets and arrows.
@chickee fella, I think the water cannon would work just fine
So would one say this is the first version of a tank or APC
"uses tear gas canisters"
@jayne cobb, The protesters in Hong Kong right now have just the solution for that.
@Link Silverblade, what is it? I haven't heard this part
@Scottles, Water. Tenet quickly dowse any canisters with water as soon as they land, and sometimes lob them back at the police. They’ve even started carrying road cones to cover the canister until it’s sufficiently dowsed.
@Scottles, The gas can't penetrate their tiny asian eye slits.
I think the real concern here is: which one is Ted Mosby’s wife?!
Just wait till they bring out the fire hose.
Welp, history is bound to repeat itself through similar situations
@Sivls, Unless you’re mainland Chinese, then this is definitely the first time anything like this has happened.
