2. Yes and it is awful
In the fall of 1984, the K-zoo po-lice teargassed my whole neighborhood to allegedly prevent a street party and the underage drinking associated with it. We tried to hide inside from it, but it seeped into the apartment.

It worked, because it effectively ended the annual traditional Lafayette Street Party for good.
