Finally Some Rubber Bullets and Tear Gas!

I've been noting that the mobs at the recent protests (tea parties) appeared to consist mostly of nerdy white guys with smiles on their faces. Well, it looks like we finally have some riot gear, rubber bullets, and tear gas in Pittsburg at the G-20 summit.

"Riot police turned back hundreds of protesters trying to march downtown on the first day of the Group of 20 summit, arresting nearly 70 people as authorities braced for smaller, scattered protests at dozens of businesses and organizations Friday. Police, in an overwhelming show of force, declared Thursday's march illegal almost as soon as it began, firing rubber bullets and canisters of pepper spray and smoke after small bands of anarchists responded to calls to disperse by rolling huge metal trash bins, throwing rocks and breaking windows."
