Feds pepper sprayed this Vietnam Veteran/photographer right in the face. His name is Mike Hastie. He was an Army medic. #PortlandProtests

1. Stormtrumpers don't care that the protester isn't doing anything wrong.

The whole point is to make people afraid to protest.

3. Shitty thing to do, but ... what is the context here?

What is the point of yelling at the Feds saying that he and his fellow soldiers committed terrible atrocities in Vietnam?

I don't get the point he's trying to make.

5. I don't either, but it shouldn't have gotten him teargassed.

In fact, nothing he might have said could justify that response.

7. If you can get tear gassed for meaningless political rants

Then every republican in the country would be constantly choking

11. Oh for SURE that response was completely out of line ...

Fortunately that doesn't seem to be too terrible of a chemical weapon ... had it been something strong he wouldn't have kept yelling for very long.

6. The context is Portland mercenaries can't take it.

Unarmed protester yelling is maced.

Yelling not a crime.

8. I think he is trying to tell them that they will regret following illegal orders to

unconstitutionally detain, pepper spray, harm protesters and possibly escalate to more extreme violence once this is all over.

He is trying to let them know that they will forever be scarred by their actions against American citizens, moms, dads, kids, etc.

imo...

10. That makes sense ... in the heat of the moment he's not making that point very clearly ...

Almost comes off sounding like he's saying 'hey what I did was way worse than what you guys are doing!' based on what's actually in the video.

Regardless, of course it's total bullshit what these pigs did.

9. We did what we were told

and regretted it because it was wrong. What you are doing is also wrong and you will regret it.

12. If I go to any protest marches ever again, I'll be

armed with my own can of bear mace, fuck those mercenaries. I's also be trying to rip their fucking head gear off their faces just to expose their identity.

13. Kinda sad how this guy put his life on the line fighting for ours and his own freedom

Only to be assaulted by Fuckstick von Bonespur's private goon squad.

Fuck Trump.
