Those policemen were arms length reach of the both of us. Initial push out was brutal, some girl got hit directly with a flashbang & others beaten and tackled for no reason. Honestly surprised we both weren't attacked there
These are some of the shells from munitions fired on us here at the North East Precinct.
This is a part of the initial push out of the precinct, too. Featuring the first time of multiple that a stranger physically dragged me to safety.,
Even more stun grenades and impact munitions. filming this something ricocheted and hit me right in the temple.
Crowd moved about a block after that last charge an re-regrouped a block down the street, pretty amazing to hold fast. Wonder if these policemen would keep this up with o all that armor, as several people keep inviting them to find out about. No takers yet
