I was watching when it happened.

On the other hand, I was also watching Fox News and one of their reporters/cameramen were invited behind the police lines.

Some of those who work forces are the same that burn crosses.

The police are attacking journalists; swear all the fark you want.

1) I've never actually been exposed to a flashbang, but I don't think they shoot out like that
2) "fireworks are being deployed by Seattle police." .. Why fireworks?

Bootleg: 1) I've never actually been exposed to a flashbang, but I don't think they shoot out like that


Those things are LOUD as fark.  A couple houses down from us, the sons were continually in trouble with the law for breaking into cars, stealing credit cards, wallets, etc (don't ask me who is stupid enough to leave those items in a car, that's a completely separate issue) and using them to buy guns and ammo.

We weren't home when it happened, but a SWAT vehicle and about a dozen cop cars descended on the house one Saturday AM, and the two were ordered out.  When they failed to comply, the cops detonated a flash-bang on the front porch, and bashed down the door to arrest them.

Our neighbor who lives across the street and three houses to the left of them said it was so loud it rattled all the dishes in her kitchen at the back of the house.  She thought it was a gas explosion.

Wow, talk about hyperbole. That was nothing close to a flash bang. That wasn't even a decent firecracker.

That was neither a flash a bang or a grenade.  Discuss.

People have an aversion to getting burned.
The light and noise can be disorienting.
When they are pointed at you, you tend to move away.

I have been exposed to a flashbang. Roughly 5 feet away. Was blinded for a good 2 minutes. Minimal hearing for 10. But the part that actually scared me was that the concussion took my breath for a few seconds. Not an experience I wish to repeat.
 
2020-06-02 1:44:46 PM  
That was a Roman Candle.

Still not cool, but definitely not a flashbang.

We've crossed a line, the number of mainstream journalists that have been targeted by police in these protests is no accident.  It truly is them against us.

Yeah they are.  I live not too far from the Columbus, OH statehouse and one went off halfway down the block in front of my place.  It rattled an entire 6-story building.

Also, they're not supposed to actually be shot at people where they ignite on the person.  Supposed to be shot ABOVE the people or out in front of them. It is a destructive device and can light fires.

This is dangerous and completely out of their intended use.

Cops don't care. If they did, "less than lethal" tasers wouldn't be used to inflict pain for compliance.

Step 1) Police open fire.
Step 2) Protesters throw water bottles and rocks and return tear gas canisters.
Step 3) Police declare a riot and shoot more.

Indeed. And the SPD knows this, because they were called on the carpet in 2015 for lobbing blast balls directly at people during May Day.

And then they were called on the carpet again in 2016 for doing the same thing the next year. One ended up lodging a piece of shrapnel in an independent journalist's face.

They just don't give a fark.

The police fired an incendiary round at a reporter, for no discernible reason, and it went off after it struck her. True or false?

That objectively detached enough for you, or do I need to take some dissociative drugs?

You need to know the exact make and model of the round that was fired or you're just a farking liar.
