Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

It's that time of year again - time to render the honor and obeisance due to one of the very best movies ever made.

    zero arrests at the Occupy Toronto eviction thus far

    city workers have been slowly taking down tents

    items from the tents are being cataloged so the owners can reclaim them later

    people are being allowed to take down their own tents and get their stuff if they're present

    cops are offering help to take down the giant yurts the protesters set up outside the library

    a LOT of protesters are screaming shitty things and some have barricaded themselves inside a gazebo, but the cops are thus far ignoring them

    Dammit, stalking my Santee leads me to posts made almost exclusively in the [chat] thread. Can't you post in an incredibly specific thread like "O-Gauge railways sets and why I love them", santee?

    Man, your cops are failing so hard at this.

    Not even a beating?

    if I was a cop I'd solve 100% of problems with tear gas

    a bunch of people chained themselves up inside the gazebo and say they don't have the keys to the locks and thus cannot leave

    the cops are like "yeah, actually, we can just cut those later"

    and then walked away

    it'll probably be the last thing they deal with

    seems the police strategy is to deal with as much quiet, reasonable stuff as possible at first and come back for the crazy yahoos later

    New York sure could learn something from them.

  • AbdhyiusAbdhyius Registered User regular
    okay I'm reading a page on tear gas here that says most police forces have stopped exposing trainees to it because of the long-term adverse health effects

    ...I am sort of rethinking how good an idea it was to get voluntarily gassed a second time

    yeah people who have chained themselves to things are quite easy to deal with, really

    yes and no

    it's not why most of them cry because it's the reason they always cry

    the most common reason for them crying is because I just strangled their beloved pet

    I think mine was 115/70. It was 140/90 when I first walked in but I had to fucking run from the parking lot because it's like half a mile away from the building.

  • AbdhyiusAbdhyius Registered User regular
    is there any police problem that can't be solved with tear gas?

    protesters not wanting to move? tear gas them and wait.

    tough interrogation? An hour in a tear gas filled room is an easy way to do the "bad cop" routine

    opening a window automatically makes you the nice cop

    mine climbed up to 140/110 yesterday

    the machine's numbers were in red and making blinky noises

    that's bad, right?

  • PonyPony Registered User regular
    hahahahaha apparently the police just yelled "mic check" and people responded and they're going to use the whole "people's mic" indoctrination method to get people to listen to their announcement

    that's pretty great

    According to my irregular heartbeat-related readings, that's "you need to look at some lifestyle changes and possibly medication" bad, rather than "HOLY SHIT CODE BLUE" bad, which would be closer to 200/120.

    Who should avoid exposure? Edit

    Everyone without adequate protection. Anyone inside a closed room without adequate ventilation - intensifying the level and duration of the chemical exposure. For most healthy people, the effects of tear gas and pepper spray are temporary. However, for some people the effects can be long-lasting and life-threatening. People with the conditions listed below should be aware of these risks and may want to try to avoid exposure. Please be aware that in intense actions, police behavior can be unpredictable, and avoidance is not always possible.
    ■ Folks with respiratory diseases, such as asthma, emphysema, etc. risk exacerbation, permanent damage if exposed. If someone experiences difficulty breathing, help them leave the area, if possible.
    ■ Vulnerable people such as infants, the elderly, and the immune compromised, risk intensified and possibly life-threatening responses.
    ■ Anyone with chronic health conditions or those on medications that weaken the immune system, (i.e., chemotherapy, Lupus, HIV, radiation, or long-term corticosteroids, such as prednisone) risk exacerbation of illness, intensified response and possible delayed recovery.
    ■ Women who are or could be pregnant, or who are trying to get pregnant may be at risk of spontaneous abortion or increased risk of birth defects, but not enough is known about its effects.
    ■ Nursing mothers risk passing toxins on to their infant.
    ■ Folks with skin (i.e., severe acne, psoriasis, or eczema) and eye (i.e., conjunctivitis or uveitis) conditions risk an intensified response.
    ■ People wearing contact lenses may experience increased eye irritation and damage due to chemicals being trapped under the lenses. They must be removed immediately with clean fingers and discarded.
    ■ Be aware of positional asphyxia - almost all pepper spray related deaths occur when the victim has been hogtied and placed face-down.

    "if someone experiences difficulty breathing"

    I would say there are few people who don't experience difficulty breathing in tear gas. That's kinda what it does.

    If someone is breathing fine, they are impressively strong willed, or one of the lucky bastards who are basically immune.

    "The police are attempting to facilitate a peaceful removal of all tents and structures presently erected in St. James Park. Once the tents and structures are cleared and the park is declared safe, the park will be re-opened and the protest can continue"

    Amazing, good job TPS

    That's strange blood pressure. 140 whatever, but 110 is way too high.

    140/110 is, like, precisely borderline hypertension.
