I do miss living in a college town. There are schools here, but by no means is this a college town, in various of which I grew and lived into well into my '30s.Ahhh, nostalgia.
Perhaps they put up a sign across Madison police stations, "don't forget to pepper spray civilians, even the peaceful ones."
Maybe it's a comment to encourage the kids on campus to act like the kids around Paris...
Who'd a thunk Clara Barton went to hell?
I'm not in Madison, but I've been pepper sprayed by the police as a peaceful civilian before. It was unpleasant but not the worst thing that's happened to me--I was upset but grudgingly understood why it happened (I turned the wrong corner, right into the police as they were trying to do crowd control/prevent a riot). An NPR reporter got hit right in the eyes at ~ the same time though and needed medical attention.
I wonder what Ann thinks of the pepper spraying. Ann, do you wish to opine?
I think I'd rather be pepper sprayed than shot at with one of those damn rubber bullet things. Ouch!And let's not go back to the days of the water cannons...
Actually, IIRC not too long before this happened to me, a young girl was accidentally killed by some sort of non-lethal munition in a similar crowd-control incident.(actually here's an article about it)
graphically they are terrific and true eye candy to me.who cares what they say. i think it's almost intentionally cute/ironic... playing off of the sing-song comment one hears as they tear out the door to trick or treat..."don't forget to wear a coat!"
