Footage taken after a home was tear-gassed Tear gas is marketed and exported as "non-lethal", but in Bahrain --- as in many other countries --- it is proving quite deadly. In the past month alone Sajeda Faisal Jawad, a 5-day-old baby, Abdulali Ali Ahmed, a 73-year-old man, and Fakhriya Jassim AlSakran, a 55-year-old woman, all died from tear gas inhalation, whilst 16-year old Sayed Hashim died after he was struck by a gas canister fired by security forces at his neck and chest.
Police brutality is police brutality. Batons, pepper spray, tear gas, rubber bullets, stun guns, fists... Its all the same. by Jan 2
It's not pepper spray; it's freaking gang-beating by cops! by Jan 2
From Fox 13 in Tampa comes the horrifying story of Nick Christie , a 62-year-old Ohio man who was detained by the Lee County Sheriff's Office for being publicly intoxicated. While Christie's wife asked that he be taken to the hospital, Lee County cops decided instead to strip Christie naked, tie him to a chair, cover his face, and then pepper spray him repeatedly, until he died: The District 21 Medical Examiner ruled his death was a homicide because he had been restrained and sprayed with pepper sprayed by law enforcement officers.
The ongoing OccupyWallStreet protests may be one of the biggest stories of 2011. Although the OWS demonstrations are certainly a big deal, understanding the disproportionate militarized crackdown by local law enforcement officials in 18 cities - coordinated by the DHS - is even more important. Before I go into more detail, it is important to note that the problem with militarized local police forces did not begin in 2011 as a response to the OWS protests.

i 8 Votes Exposure to concentrated CS gas can lead to blister formation. It is very important to shower as soon as possible. Egypt is 1 of 5 nations that haven’t signed the Chemical Weapons Convention & are unhindered by restrictions on use of CS gas. If you have any information / references about these substances please use the comment section and I will add it to the page.
Apologies, this post is really just a place to dump a load of stuff - following a couple of requests, I thought it might be useful to post somewhere a round-up of arms and ammunition being used against protestors in Tahrir right now. There seem to be a growing number people in and around the Square angry at being fired on by weapons supplied from countries making nice noises about democracy and restraint in Egypt, and are starting to document markings and specifications of what's being used. It won't help stop any violence, but I'm generally in favour of causing a modicum of embarrassment to those governments and companies which continue to supply tools of repression, usually for profit, to those who they well know will use them to violate human rights and repress their own citizens.
