“I love how people keep telling me the people we’re warned before they pepper sprayed us. Question, where you there? Did you walk with us? If not, please have a seat on your opinion.
When you march and protest your doing just that. There was no cop speaking to any of us warning us to go any other way. No one on the mega phone or anything for any warnings. See, what you so think happens is from sitting on your couch watching from your TV. So when people are marching how are we supposed to know what’s being said or told when we are out there in the front lines marching?! No, what I seen was one man speaking to an officer, the officer moved his Sheild, and another officer started spraying people.
What’s crazy, is people really think, people marching and walking are supposed to turn on the tv when WE ARE MARCHING. Maybe one of my “friends” should’ve messaged me if you felt that way or cared to tell me valuable information.”
“They didn’t just spray protestors, they sprayed photographers, news reporters, camera men. All of us. Normal people standing by.”-F.G.
And this second statement that is from another eye witness: D.D. :
“No helicopters said anything! Of course the media will tell you something different!! I was there until the second round of pepper spray helping parents with kids get further away from the cloud and helping people who were hurt from getting hit by people running from the spray. NOBODY ANNOUNCED ANYTHING so if you don’t know, well now you know holmes. Easy to say stuff from the comfort of your couch” #fuckyourcomfortandyourfeelings#unitedminorities
So in conclusion… this false narrative is being spread by Phoenix mayor Stanton and Phoenix govt as propaganda…Wish I could say I was surprisedlet’s say this one more time: I was there with thousands of others and…THERE WAS NO WARNING FROM PHX POLICE BEFORE THEY FIRED TEAR GAS AND PEPPER SPRAY INTO PEACEFUL PROTESTERS FACES.
