Can’t stop, won’t stop (9.22): Updates from tonight’s town hall are slow coming due to the virtual media black out, but it seems like the name of tonight’s game was “Pass the Buck.” Hard to heal when no one’s willing to take responsibility for their wrongs. #staywoke #farfromover
okay but how can they even begin to deny having military gear when there are literally hundreds of pictures of cannisters and riot gear???
is this some semantic-based loophole?!
"Our police department doesn’t use or possess tear gas, rubber bullets, stingers, or any of the items used during protest."
So are they admitting those items were used during the protests? Or are they saying “we don’t use them during protests [but we didn’t consider those times protests]”
Like what in the holy fuck is happening?
Yeah there probably is some weird technicality that allows them to say that they don’t really own the equipment. I imagine since it was given by the government as part of the military surplus thing maybe it’s still the property of the united states government and not necessarily ferguson itself
STILL BULLSHIT THOUGH
