TBQH I also can't believe we live in a world which has essentially decided that war is actually ok as long as you're not *too* much of a dick about it.
Caution for anyone in the US • ironically named "non-lethal" weapons
All so-called "non-lethal" weapons can be lethal or cause serious injury if used incorrectly. They *are* being used incorrectly.
Tear gas cannisters carry warnings that they're not supposed to be aimed at people. Rubber bullets are intended to be aimed at the ground to only hit people after they ricochet.
US police have been aiming both of these things at people's faces. They have caused grievious injuries which I will not describe here. Even protestors standing peacefully. Even people with their hands up. Even medics and journalists.
Some people injured, weren't even protesting and were just out buying groceries
If you're going anywhere near protests, please be extremely careful.
