Lunatics maiming women and children for no reason

Chemical bombs like tear gas and pepper spray should not be called nonlethal, for they are only nonlethal if used within strict technical norms to prevent severe harm to individuals. At least one person died in the protests in Brazil from inhaling tear gas (it was thrown indiscriminately by the Brazilian military police inside bars full of people – already running away from streets that had been completely gassed – inside hospitals and universities).

Chemical bombs like tear gas and pepper spray should not be called nonlethal, for they are only nonlethal if used within strict technical norms to prevent severe harm to individuals. At least one person died in the protests in Brazil from inhaling tear gas (it was thrown indiscriminately by the Brazilian military police inside bars full of people – already running away from streets that had been completely gassed – inside hospitals and universities). Some people call these weapons lesser-lethal weapons to remind us that they must be employed within such norms. Canisters used after expiration date (see photographs in the Brazilian social networks) can also be lethal. Pepper spray can also lead to death from respiratory complications for it may cause severe harm if inhaled at close range. Rubber-bullets, also used by Brazilian police, can penetrate the skin and kill if shot at very close range.

No ruler is alone, listen to the people, if you think you can force them to stop you just win a battle but for sure you lose the war. Your people deserve a better treatment.

My heart goes out to Turkey b/c tear gas n chemical laced water canons are used on all peaceful demonstrators in my country too. The ruling party has ruled for over 50 yrs vs 10 in yours. Yr struggle is my struggle too. I hope n pray u succeed.

. . . The United States sells more bombs, missiles, tear gas, and even land mines than the rest of the world combined. We will become the most-hated nation if we keep this selfish practice of putting profits above people. Employ Americans at productive jobs, not destructive jobs!

I live in Turkey.I must say that those protestors ruined buses,ambulances,cars which belong to citizens and government and some of them even burned our flag.Those people in the streets only present %20 people living in Turkey.And their supporters are mostly from abroad.Some of them really deserved gas.
