'CNN’s Ed Lavendera reports that Congress is giving $100 million to pay security expenses for this summer’s political conventions. Denver and St. Paul officials have said that the types of weapons being purchased are “top secret". '

". . .But confirmed one report several hundred thousands of high powered pepper ball rifles will be used to disperse crowds.
FLEENER: When that hits, the ball breaks, powder expels. the same reaction as pepper spray. Except it’s powder.
LAVENERA: Congressional testimony revealed there will be specialized gas detection equipment and biohazard equipment. Then there are the science fiction-like weapons that may or may not be part of the arsenal, like the goo gun.
SECURITY CONSULTANT: It shoots a rubbery gelatin mass when it strikes the body and comes out in a stream it wraps around limbs and the torso and the person can’t move.
LAVENERA: It can make a Humvee have spin in place. Then there are the weapons that would make unruly crowds run for cover like a sonic ray gun, a device which emits an ear piercing sound and a microwave device that can be focused on an area and can make you feel like your skin is on fire. The ACLU has sued the city of Denver to find out if these weapons are in the arsenal.
SILVERSTEIN: Instead of asking the public, “How come you want to know?” Maybe the question should posed to the government, “Why are you interested in keeping this secret?”
NEWMAN: Rational people are not concerned. Those concerned are the ones causing problems. "

You think I'm making this up don't you? Reading it, I think I just made it up, but these are the weapons real weapons stored in wharehouses all over the US, that the American government has ready to deploy against its own citizens. We've seen the inhuman contempt the American military machine has for foreign civilians. That sentiment extends to those brave American people who would dare to stand up to the regime in the belly of the beast itself.

But Nil Desperandum - nothing can stop the people.
