I can't believe it's legal to use tear gas on protestors. According to international law, using tear gas in military conflicts is literally a war crime.



Even if tear gas (and pepper spray) weren’t a war crime normally. Who in their right mind could possibly think that using toxins that cause respiratory reactions such as coughing and sneezing in a time of a respiratory pandemic where coughing and sneezing are the most common ways to pass the disease is anything less than horrifying? Much less a human rights violation worthy of The Hague tribunals… 🤢
