G-20 Police Attack Students at University of Pittsburgh

September 28, 2009

    Next time don’t touch the part of your body that has been gassed because will just make it burn more. Get into an open area,if possible, and let it wear off. This is coming from an Iraqi war vet. Guys I agree with you. The cops had no right to attack you and you are protected by the Constitution of the United States. I may not agree with what you are saying but ,by damn, I’ll defend your right to say it. You are bright, educated young people don’t you think that the President that you help elect is the President that is eroding our civil rights? I’ve been around a lot longer and this the worst since Jimmy Carter.
