Apparently last night/early this morning the Chicago cops sent out a Long Range Acoustic Device, or LRAD, to disperse the rioters… excuse me, the ‘peaceful protesters*’. If you’ve never seen one of these before, well, that probably means that you’re more used to activism on the Tea Party model. Oddly enough, the police rarely if ever need to use crowd-suppression devices on crowds that end their protests by cleaning up all their loose trash and depositing it in the nearest public waste receptacle.
Think about that, ye Occupiers. Also: the hygienic and social advantages of soap and deodorant.
