This scene of Bledsoe throwing back a tear-gas canister during an attack on Ferguson, MO protesters has been seen worldwide. Not even the Palestinians, who according to social media posts, advised protesters in Ferguson, MO on dealing with tear gas attacks, witnessed such a scene in their country. These men are not angry, they are ready.
Bledsoe bent down and picked the canister up, ignoring the searing heat in his right hand.“I felt like, ‘Y’all shooting at me? I’m just trying to get home,’” Bledsoe said. “I picked it up and threw it back. I never, ever, ever pictured myself throwing something at the police.”
