    I was about a block away. People started chanting "USA" in the street, and the Wilmington PD threw tear gas.

    Maybe the French should employ those tactics on angry Muslims...

    Question, what political party were they, Teabaggers?

    If they were, I'd say the teargas was acceptable.

    I hate to burst your bubble... but in the real world, not everyone is a partisan hack. It was a mixed crowd, multiracial, many different political and religious persuasions, dressed up for Halloween, chanting USA. This is the real world where not everyone is looking for a political rally, or a racial riot, etc... and this was in the South...

    Looks like the cops got pro-active on an unruly crowd before anything bad happened.

    It's not uncommon for cities to break up crowds on days like this. It's not like they broke out the batans.

    Really? Link please.

    Cops do not use tear gas "pro-actively". I believe it's in the handbook. :cuckoo:
