October 16: ROCKET

And the rocket’s red glare/The bombs bursting in air…

I know, I know. This weapon is NOT launching a rocket. Rather, it is propelling a canister of “riot control agent” in Ferguson, MO, in 2014. Chemical irritant. Lachrymator. You know: tear gas. Now I’m all for badass-looking weaponry and gear. It shows you mean BUSINESS. How could anyone hope to stand against such overwhelming force? I think people would have to be pretty damned angry and determined, since they’ve been turning out for protests like this for years, braving injury, arrest, and even death to inspire change.
