So, what’s it been, a week? A week since that officer sprayed down those kids protesting on that college campus. And I still don’t know how I feel.
On the one hand, the images are horrible. The absolute nonchalant manner in which that coop was spraying down those kids was a bit creepy; just a bit [or more] too big state for me.
Again, on the other hand, this is how the Left rolls. They “protest peacefully” just sitting back waiting to bait authorities. They lock arms and lay down limp. And then when the cops move in, they claim abuse or brutality. The shots of the police trying to pull off protesters from one another to bring order to a chaotic scene are everywhere.
Back to the protests here though. It didn’t seem chaotic. It didn’t seem on the verge of violence. It seemed calm. Maybe the cops could have pulled ’em off one by one, I don’t know.
Then again….this goes back to one of my golden rules: When a police officer tells you to “move on”, it is most prudent to move on.
I don’t think that I’dve used pepper spray, I KNOW I wouldn’t be sitting in the street protesting, and if I was that cop, I probably would’ve pried ’em loose, one by one.
Whatever else you think, this is funny:
