Yeah, well, you and I will disagree on whether he deserved to be maced 
anywhere.  First rule of confrontation with authority is never bring a 
camera to a gunfight.  The people in the video were showing you one 
angle only.  They were there in contravention of the city police and 
they paid a price for it.  They also don't know squat about how to deal 
with a riot squad.  They ought to go ask their grand-mothers.  The old 
ladies would have probably done better against that little group of cops 
than they did.
