The other night, in Phoenix:
Eh heh heh heh.
This is one of those cases where it wouldn’t really matter who this asshole was protesting; in any case, the behavior of “antifa” fascists is out of control. A few generations ago, they would have been dispersed at bayonet-point; in recent events (Berkeley) they have been emboldened by a general lack of police response.
Not in Phoenix, though.
In spite of some of the headlines on this incident (including mine) this dickhead wasn’t actually hit by a rubber bullet:
According to Sgt. Howard with Phoenix police, some people in the crowd began to throw rocks, bottles and other projectiles at police and someone in the crowd dispersed tear gas in the area.
After the crowd was given a warning to disperse, police used smoke, pepper balls, pepper spray, tear gas and flash bangs to make them disperse. Howard said that no rubber bullets were used by police.
Police did make four arrests, three pertaining the protests and one on an unrelated warrant. The three arrested in relation to the protests were 28-year-old Daireus Stokes, 25-year-old Pamela Robertson and 34-year-old Derrick Pacheco.
So, that means that the jackwagon in the video was hit by something else – probably, judging from the video, a smoke grenade, most likely fired from a launcher.
I bet that really smarts.
