G-20 protest post

Okay, in Pittsburgh, the City where I live, the G-20 summit was held last week. It was a very interesting experience. There were so many police officers. . . Now, I am a student at the University of Pittsburgh, but I do not live on campus, so I did not witness the protests and riots on Thursday and Friday nights. I have heard from friends who live on campus what happened. In short, police were tear gassing students and were shooting them with rubber bullets. I watched youtube videos of the event and was really upset at what I saw. Here are some videos,

Truly disturbing! I usually try and stay away from political posts, but since this happened in my hometown, I feel the urge to represent what I saw happen.
