Photo cred - reddit

Sadly this morning I was greeted with pictures like this all over the internet. Cops shooting anti-austerity protesters in the face with tear gas. It doesn't matter what side of the issue you're on, no one can look at this and say everything's okay. When I first saw this picture, I was trying to figure out what was going on because I couldn't believe I was really seeing that. I was convinced that either someone Photoshopped something or that maybe the cop was holding a tear-gas launcher and the smoke and sparks were coming from somewhere else.

So I started looking around for more information about it and instead found this video from Ruptly of the incident. Sadly none of my assumptions were correct, the cop did in fact launch tear gas right into those protesters' faces. All I have to say is it's going to be a long spring.

The frame takes place at [0:12]


UPDATED* This is the horrifying result of the incident.
