    Scorched earth policy, I get that. If this is a real war, use real bullets and then no quarter given makes tactical sense. But in this limited engagement we are in, aid is allowed. It’s like hitting hospitals and schools.

    Medical station = water, food, and milk for pepper sprayed eyes.

    Semantics. They call it "medical station." I call it "riot support pantry."

    How they get to choose the words that get used is the difference between "those saints" and "those bastards."

    Who gives a crap why it happened. I applaud the one thinking person that thought to destroy their supply line. Good for them. Give no quarter and expect none. I'm in.

    If this was supporting the rioters, it needed to be trashed.

    I was being facetious....
    It's shocking, although not all that shocking that folks glom on to this....
    The vast majority of protests have been peaceful, and even the places that were tumultuous are largely better now...

    To continue on with this "were at war narritive" dumb

    A couple buildings get burned, a boomer or two get thumped and stomped, glass broken all over town ... peaceful protest. Don't touch me.

    A couple folding tables with food, water, milk for pepper eyes, and a couple boxes of bandaids get trashed by the police so those doing the destruction can't refuel for more mayhem ... OUTRAGEOUS!!

    The mayor wants an explanation...of why the police removed the tools that were stockpiled by the demonstrators to help them resist the police more effectively, including common weapons? Really? The mayor couldn't figure out why people who are going to rely on tear gas for riot control might want to take away the supplies people brought specifically for the purpose of making the teargas less effective?

    The mayor must be stupid.

    Apply the label to yourself as you see fit.

    I applaud the tactic. No one hurt, weakens resistance.

    Can't say I really care. It's time for this sh!t to be over. Nothing good will ever come of it.

    What the hell are they protesting anyway? Some cops in Minnesota killed a guy? Sounds like a Minnesota problem. Not
    a National, let's burn this sh!t down problem.

    Unless this is just the DNC's presidential campaign. In that case it is a National phenomenon. Treason, boardering on acts of war.

    If that makes me a racist or a fascist or just a bad person; I don't have the phucks to give for that either.

    Antifa. And frozen water bottles as well.

    They did this all over the country. Police departments shared info this time and it helped.

    A pound of water thrown at the face hurts.
