The camera angle they never show on TV
on the far left of the picture, you can see a small figure (possibly two) wearing what looks like dark jeans and a black tee with a white long-sleeved shirt underneath; the white sleeve is clearly visible at child-size, child-height, the curb they’re standing on it’s far enough away for that to be an adult body
this is fucking important to know, especially given how the cops/media are twisting and misrepresenting the protesters’ actions as ‘violence’
Here’s the shotguns used tonight. Lots of restraint shown:
Summary of the night (August 18th, 2014):
There were many arrests throughout the night. Water bottles and other objects were thrown at police, and after gunshots rang out near the QuikTrip, police began firing smoke and gas indiscriminately. There have been reports of white anarchist agitators from out of town, provoking police.
Many protesters ran, terrified, coughing. Journalists were caught in the gas: one canister rolled right under a photographer, who collapsed from it. Fires and bricks were used by residents to try and keep back police.
Police began clearing out the street, ordering anyone who wasn’t credentialed media to leave or be faced with arrest. When one reporter (who is livestreaming the events and has a camera on him) explained he lost his credentials while being fired at and showed his PRESS patch instead, officer told him “this doesn’t mean shit” while ripping the journalist’s PRESS patch off of his vest and throwing it to the ground.
Police formed two lines and began moving forward. A handful of protesters got caught between the lines, trapped but repeatedly told to get out. Among them, WaPo reporter Wesley Lowery reports that the entire neighbourhood has barriers and many people are unable to get home.
SWAT teams have begun doing tactical sweeps and media were ordered away.
Amnesty International was also on the ground tonight and were kicked out by police. Currently, AI is highly critical of the US.
There are still a few people trapped, it appears, including a few reporters, who are tweeting that they’re being mercilessly gassed:
And here’s an image of what it looks like when they fire gas:
Currently waiting for a presser from Captain Johnson, who was seen tonight attempting to keep peace with no helmet/mask/gear.

Tumblr is officially full of psychopaths.
There is a fine line between psychopath and genius. People on Tumblr play jump-rope with this line.
That …was beautiful.
the #IfTheyGunnedMeDown tag is so important
