In Response to Ferguson Lawsuit, Missouri Police to Restrain Tear Gas Use on Protesters

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

Three police agencies in Missouri agreed on Thursday to cut back on the use of tear gas as a means of crowd control, in response to a lawsuit brought by six protesters from the city of Ferguson.

U.S. district judge Carol Jackson dismissed the lawsuit on Thursday at the request of both sides after the settlement was reached. Jackson, however, will supervise for compliance until January 1, 2018.

The article doesn't seem to say if the police departments will use some other form of "crowd control" (i.e. 'rubber bullets', sound cannons....) to stop the people from exercising their human rights (I'd invoke their Constituional rights, but that's just a piece of paper, right?).

Missouri Police Guidelines: Update

The use of tear gas is no longer recommended to control protesters. Shoot them instead.

Note: Due to the recent Justice Department report on our activities make sure you also shoot white protesters - if you see any.
