    I spent 3 days on the 7th’ street corridor.

    Notice the soldiers with guns. Not a bullet in any one of them.

    The police came through tossinf tear gas grenades out the window, we had no masks for tear? gas only our Scott-Paks and we needed the for other things. They issued us tear gas masks about 6 months after the riots.
