I'm including the video because it makes the point really well, "less than lethal" is an entirely bullshit concept being used for its propaganda value. A full-auto pepperball machinegun is "less than lethal" in the same way a shot in the head from a billy club is "less than lethal". It probably won't kill you on the spot. However you may go into a coma and die later, or live on as an invalid/vegetable.
|Now imagine they shot you in the side of the head.|
Drudge report headline yesterday, the US government took in a record $2.7 TRILLION dollars last year (2012) in taxes, more money than has ever been collected in tax in American history... and they're still over a trillion bucks short of what they spent in 2012. What are they doing about it? Spending more, and also buying anti-riot gear for when the bread and circuses run out and they gotta shoot a million zombies.
