Well, damned if you do, damned if you don't.
Fine. If you're an unruly mob, let's go back to tear gas, water cannons, and rubber bullets. Your choice.
Why do you suppose that left-wing radical groups just assume that less-than-lethal weapons are designed solely with them in mind? That seems pretty egocentric to me. After all, MY assumption would be that these are military weapons, designed to be used against bad guys.
What's that? You're a bad guy? Sucks to be you.
