Victoria Snelgrove
Here's a damn shame! What the hell happened to tossing tear gas canisters into an unruly crowd?

Well here's the 21st Century answer; Melvin L. Tucker, a security consultant who specializes in the use of force by police, said "less-than-lethal" weaponry has become increasingly popular among police departments around the country over the past five years as a replacement for nightsticks, tear gas and other such tactics.
"This is generally a lot safer. It's a real tragedy," said Tucker, the former police chief of Tallahassee, Fla., and Asheville, N.C.

Why the hell do the police always have to SHOOT something now-a-days?! As usually wont, a over reaction by the men in blue of Boston Killed A Journalism Student, after the city's Red Sox clinched the World Series Game berth.
And here's a quote not in most articles:

"While I firmly and emphatically accept responsibilities for any errors. I also condemn in the harshest words possible the actions of the punks (Wednesday) night who turned our city's victory into an opportunity for violence and mindless destruction."

Uhh...How about murder Ms. O'Toole? Any comment? You know? Mindless shootings into crowds of humans?

That's Boston Police Commissioner Kathleen O'Toole who is so upset with the "punks" who ruined the City's celebration in the same breath as speaking of the Killing of Victoria Snelgrove, a journalism major at Emerson College, who was 21 years of age!
I guess Commissioner O'Toole and her minions are unaware of the hundreds of bystanders who get caught up in the asinine violence a FEW ASSHOLES feel compelled to create!
That's the mentality! Reminds me of Chicago in 1968. Many, many innocent bystanders passing through or just plain caught in the mix, bludgeoned, dragged into wagons or SHOT at with NON LETHAL weapons.

I figure anything coming out of a barrel or tube at about 100 miles per hour is gonna kill or seriously maime my ass!
I don't care if it's supposed to break up, fall apart or turn into baked beans! YOU DO NOT SHOOT PROJECTILES INTO A GATHERING OF HUMAN BEINGS!
