Okay, so I Googled “flash bang.”
It’s actually just a euphemism for a stun grenade.
Which you may have heard of in…. video games.
A stun grenade, also known as a flash grenade, flashbang, thunderflash or sound bomb, is a non-lethal explosive device used to temporarily disorient an enemy’s senses. It is designed to produce a blinding flash of light of around 7 million candela (cd) and an intensely loud “bang” of greater than 170 decibels (dB). It was first used by the British Army’s SAS in the late 1970s.
The flash momentarily activates all photoreceptor cells in the eye, blinding it for approximately five seconds. Afterwards the victim sees an afterimage that impairs his or her aim. The loud blast temporarily deafens the victim and also disturbs the fluid in the ear, causing loss of balance.
The concussive blast of the detonation can still injure, and the heat created can ignite flammable materials such as fuel. The fires that occurred during the Iranian Embassy siege in London were caused by stun grenades.
One has to wonder why the media doesn’t just say “stun grenade.”
It appears as though police have largely disbanded the bands of protesters and protestees.
Successful flash bangs are successful?
A reporter for The Oregonian/OregonLive was injured when he was struck by a projectile during rowdy protests between right-wing activists and self-described anti-fascists in Portland.
Eder Campuzano was bloodied Saturday afternoon but said in a Tweet published on the newspaper’s website that he was “okay” and was going to get evaluated.
Police deployed “flash bangs” and other devices to try to disperse the crowds. Authorities say demonstrators threw rocks and bottles at officers.
The rally was organized by Joey Gibson, leader of right-wing leaning group Patriot Prayer.
It has drawn hundreds of supporters and counter-protesters.
Wtf is a “flash bang”?
I’m supposing it is what it sounds like, but…
Police have deployed “flash bangs” and other devices to try to disperse crowds of right-wing activists and self-described anti-fascist counter-protesters in Portland, Oregon.
The demonstrations Saturday drew hundreds and there was a heavy police presence as similar gatherings have turned violent.
Just before 2 p.m. police ordered crowds to disperse, saying protesters had thrown rocks and bottles at officers. There were arrests, but it wasn’t immediately clear how many. There was also debris left on the street by demonstrators.
Everyone knows which side was throwing bottles at the cops.
But the cops – or as I like to call them “badge niggers” – don’t care. They will just beat the white people, because that’s what they learned to do in their training in Israel.
Original article follows.
These goys still seem to think that they have the right to speak freely, petition a redress of their grievances.
We already learned that this is not the case, at least for us, for now.
Not in a world where a disgustingly obese, infertile slut can be scared by car crashes and die of a heart attack.
Our freedom of speech ends where a social parasite’s inability to stop stuffing her mouth with corn syrup begins.
But, these guys want to keep trying – that’s great. Let’s see them try to wave a few American flags and talk about the Constitution and Jesus, literally the most un-edgy thing imaginable, and count the seconds until the police herd them into the antifa terrorists and arrest them for defending themselves.
I’m pretty sure I’ve seen all this before and I know how it goes down, but I’m on the edge of my seat anyway.
I couldn’t find one thumbnail of Patriot Prayer that isn’t 56%, but don’t be fooled – these are /ourguys/.
I’m 88% certain that there are ebil huwhite aryan master race nazis in shades and three piece suits, whispering into their earpieces and coordinating everything. They have learned that it is only by fielding goblinos on the front line that they can weaponize brown privilege, which is the only plausible defense of their 1st amendment rights in the current year.
Counter-demonstrators are ready to confront members of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer during a “freedom march” in Portland, Oregon.
Saturday’s rally comes five weeks after members of the same group violently clashed with anti-fascist activists in downtown Portland, prompting police to declare a riot and revoke permits.
“I continue to strongly reject the idea that violence or hate speech are legitimate means to a political end,” Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said ahead of Saturday’s march.
There is heavy police presence around the event, which was organized by Joey Gibson, leader of the Patriot Prayer group and a long-shot Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in the state of Washington.
