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.
