Eye Witness Account on January 6th: Police Fired on Crowd, Gassed Crowd, Baited Crowd but Protesters Remained Peaceful (VIDEO)
Instead of staying on the high ground, the police defied all tactical logic by going to ground level and directly engaging the peaceful crowd.
- Then, without warning, police began firing flash/bang grenades, tear gas, and pepper spray into the crowd.
- Prior to this attack the police made no attempt to communicate with the crowd; they did not declare “an unlawful assembly” or ask the crowd to leave—they simply attacked a peaceful crowd.
- A tear gas canister struck me in the head, knocking my eyeglasses to the ground.
