There were important people in town for this conference. Bill clinton madeleine albright in kofi annan. Just name a few. There was a very thin line of sheriff's deputies trying to keep protesters out of that parking lot because that gives them immediate access to elevators that would then serve the all floors basically of the sheraton hotel so that would put them into the hotel. Were wto ministers and others are staying and we felt that that was kind of an oil in water situation and that we ought to do what we can to prevent that and all of. That's a major major challenge for us so when the time comes to say. Let's move them out of this intersection It began with warnings began with a request with a plea. We explained why we felt. We needed to attend to reclaim that intersection And create some freedom of movement in that specific area I heard the argument being made. I went to the far side of the intersection. In order to hear jim putul on his bullhorn declare an unlawful assembly. An order people out of the intersection. He repeated the warning. I don't know how many times numerous times each time was clear. It was crisp. There's a lot of chanting going on. There's drumming going on. This is a major major demonstration but here's he a announcements are very clear very crisp. Unambiguous you need to clear the intersection or we will make arrests that evolved into we will use tear gas as we realized that making arrests was tactically. Not that all feasible. We did not have enough people to do that. Remember the cops. Were doing police. Were doing this thing where they would fire the gas and kind of retreat and and so there was just like a lot of tear gas blowing around the downtown area of seattle. It was almost like the tear. Gas was was was used as a deterrent. But also the police weren't exactly capable of holding the defensive lines that they had set up so they would fire tear gas they would get pushed back. They would fire more tear gas. You know it didn't exactly completely worked to disperse the crowds. At the time. In fact it made them more agitated water for you.

I i hear people screaming They're there they say there is hurt It looks like people are in pain. You know after the wto already member there was kind of a big reassessment of police tactics and and and trying to figure out all these lessons learned what we could have done differently and even a former police chief of seattle norm stamper said that there was a huge mistake to use that kind of force on you know mostly peaceful protesters at the wto nowadays. You know it seems like it's pretty normal. You know for police to dispense tear-gas Almost immediately we use so much tear gas on november thirtieth that we were very much in danger of running out of it. And we set out please. And we sent as i recall planes or trucks or cars over to eastern washington and and rounded up as much tear gas as we could possibly find In order to use on city streets in seattle looking looking at your decision now you know today more than twenty years later. How how do you feel about it now it was. It was the worst decision. A survey tactical decision of my police career. If i had it to do over again And i'm very glad to be retired. I'm very glad people call me and say aren't you glad you're not in seattle in twenty twenty or in washington. Dc in twenty twenty one and the short answer is sure. I am because i spent thirty four years in the business. I'm now approaching the whole issue of policing from a different perspective. But i wish to hell that. I had that decision to make over again.

He also helped establish the Sawtooth wilderness and national recreation areas a sharp and jagged topped mountainous area located close to Sun Valley Idaho's world famous ski resort. Finally, one of his biggest projects was establishing the river of no return wilderness area. It was later renamed the Frank Church, River of No Return Wilderness area in his honor. The area is the largest wilderness area in the continental US spanning two point, three, six, seven, million acres in East Central Idaho. GROWING UP IN IDAHO. I was so blessed to have the ability to explore all the public state and federal land open and available to me. I went to summer camps in the Sawtooth Whitewater Rafting in the Frank Church wilderness area and stayed very far away from the edge of the cliffs in Hell's Canyon. It wasn't until I was older that I realized how incredibly lucky I was and that many other states and their citizens didn't have this kind of access to the great. Because the lands are private and visitors are prohibited in many other. States Idaho is special and unique at least we think. So I'd who was so lucky to have advocates like senator, church who fought to keep public lands public for the enjoyment of all had admiration for this may likely explain any strongly pointed corrections you may have received. I'm sorry. On behalf of my fellow citizens, they are just as passionate and uncontrolled. Kate has got on suspend some classic. Idaho pronunciation mix ups I'm just GonNa, glass over there. Because I feel like if we read them now than three years from now when I have forgotten this exchange. happened. We do it wrong. People will like be like, didn't you read a thing about that before?

It wasn't even a case where It was right in the outline just came out of our mouths. Wrong. which also happens on just a a continual basis. So, anyway I I am sorry I messed that up. For what it's worth like we discussed this tracy and my head this come up in a completely different way on a. A very casual chat call. We were on a few days ago where. They're just words. People's brains flip. I will say April when I mean August almost every single time. Yeah. That's it had like a few eight months just flipped for me, and sometimes this causes very startled and panic faces in meetings, but it's just because I never my brain is really struggles with stuff like that. So there are always instances of that for everybody I always try to just cut people slack because. Because I. Know Everyone's brain has a weird little peccadillo that sometimes does stuff like that. I also cut people slack on like the local pronunciations of things because like Oh. Yeah. But like the way those pronunciations work they, they are they signal to everybody whether you're firm around here or not, and if somebody's not from around here, I just let it go if somebody has just moved to around here, I might very. Delicately let them know the right way to say it so that they're not embarrassed in the future. Well, and then there's a third category for me, which is that particularly in Atlanta? Right? We have a street. Named after explorer. which in Atlanta? We call Ponta Leon. And when visitors come and they say positive Leone is sounds so much prettier that I don't WanNA correct. Yes. recently, I was listening to one of my favorite other podcasts. I'M NOT GONNA say which podcast because I don't want anybody to go give them a hard time, but they said the name of a Massachusetts town. As it is spelled, which is Hager Hill. But. The way that Massachusetts town is pronounced is hateful and when I heard them say it. I was like, Oh, no, they're twitter mentioned. I think even when the look their twitter mentioned, we're not too bad. So anyway I know that because I live here. Anyway.

Fatally shot, Michael Brown, also in two thousand fourteen and the ongoing protests against police brutality and racism in the United. States in some parts of the world today. People also described tear gas as an almost ever-present fact of. Of, life including in occupied Palestine and parts of Uganda in Nigeria. Proponents of tear-gas, generally maintain that it is safe when used correctly and that it's less deadly than other weapons, including firearms. But a lot of research to back up at safety is spotty at best a lot of it was conducted by the military and the results of that research are classified. Some of this research has also come from experiments. Experiments that were done on people without their consent including experiments that were conducted at Edgewood arsenal in the US, and at Porton. Down in England. One of the most cited reports on the safety of tear gas is the hymns worth report, which followed an investigation led by London doctor Sir Harold. Hemsworth. This followed the battle of the bogside which took place during the troubles in Northern Ireland in Nineteen sixty-nine. During this incident, the Royal Ulster. Constabulary fired more than one thousand canisters of tear gas and other gas weapons into a densely populated Catholic neighborhood over the span of thirty six hours. Residents fought by throwing things like stones and Molotov cocktails. They also threw back the tear gas when they were able to. after all this, a lot of people reported things like vomiting and diarrhea and other physical effects. Some of them long-lasting. But hemsworth really dismissed the testimony. He relied mostly on hospital records and he didn't really take into account that most people would not fight their way through tear gas to get to a hospital for something like diarrhea or vomiting. He also didn't really factor in the fact that the nearest hospital staff were primarily unionists while the neighborhood's residents were primarily nationalists. The opposite side of the troubles, the seems like such a stupid thing to leave out of a data set. It's really frustrating. No I don't know nobody came in because they'd probably be arrested among other things, right? So, many reasons not to go to the hospital while your neighborhood is being assaulted with tear gas. Yeah. In addition to these shortcomings in this research and the lack of research into how tear-gas affects people who were exposed to it over a prolonged period. There is so much footage from the last few years showing tear gas being used in correctly. This includes firing tear gas projectiles directly at people using large amounts of tear gas in a small space and firing tear gas at people who do not have a pass to escape from it. Yet literally, just this morning before coming here I video from last night from like a bunch of officers in protective gear. Restraining a protester in the cloud of tear gas. In addition to all of those things not being researched alive, there's just not a lot of research into the environmental effects of all of these things especially when they're being used over a prolonged amount of time like it's not a gas vanishes away even if it were, I, mean there's a long-term cumulative effect of using a lot of it like it's a, it's a powder or a liquid that's landing on surfaces and washing into the you know the the storm drain system like all of that is not a lot of research into the effect of any of that. To circle back around though to freeze and the chemical. Warfare. Service today that service is the Chemical Corps. It is charged with protection from weapons of mass destruction, including chemical, biological, and radiological and nuclear threats, and in spite of all of his work freeze was really not successful in shifting general global opinion on chemical weapons. Chemical Weapons in warfare are still banned. They're still regarded as uncivilized or barbaric they're. They're associated with terrorism, the nineteen ninety-three. Convention on the Prohibition of the Development Production Stockpiling and use of chemical weapons and on their destruction has one hundred and sixty five signatories so far. It's been ratified by sixty five states, which was the number needed for it to become binding the agents that are used in tear gas are not included in its list of prohibited toxic chemicals and their precursors though. Another nice uplifting topics. Thanks, trade no I I. Know I keep doing it, I'm sorry. I know a lot of people, a lot of people that have been like I. Always.

Word of American efforts with tear-gas, quickly spread to other parts of the world. In other parts of the world had also been developing tear gases, but the US effort on this was was large. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty British authorities in India. started a lobbying to be allowed to use tear gas against the Indian independence movement. They cited the Jillian wallow bog massacre also known as the Brits are massacre, which took place on April thirteenth. Nineteen. Nineteen At. Least Three, hundred, seventy, nine, unarmed demonstrators were killed and more than a thousand were injured after forces under Brigadier General Reginald Dyer. On them advocates for tear gas use in India framed this as a tragedy that might not have happened if British colonial forces had less lethal weapons available to them as an option, the India office on the other hand insisted that since gas could not be used in war, it could not be used in peace either colonial authorities continued to request permission to use tear gas in the India office continued to refuse into the Early Nineteen Thirties, at which point. The use of tear-gas often called tear smoke because of the ongoing associations with gas warfare in World War One. That was only after announcements were made that it would be used if the crowd didn't disperse from their the use of tear-gas started to spread to other British territories as well. At this point, Palestine was under British control under a mandate from the League of Nations British, authorities there started requesting tear gas in nineteen, twenty nine after riots and massacres that were connected to disputes over control of the Western, Wall in Jerusalem. Finally the High Commissioner of Palestine got permission to use tear gas to control riots. But only when it seemed as though, the only other choice would be firearms at first this continued to be the mindset as other countries adopted the use of tear-gas that gas should only be used in circumstances where without it, the only choice would be lethal weapons, but over time authorities began thinking of tear. Tear gas as the first response that it should be used to disperse crowds earlier rather than later to return to the US for him by the Nineteen Thirties. Tear Gas was part of the arsenals of police departments all over the country. But one of the earliest uses of tear-gas by federal troops domestically in Peacetime was on July twenty ninth of Nineteen, thirty two, and that's the bonus. Bonus army that I mentioned up at the top of the episode Congress had passed the World War Adjusted Compensation Act in nineteen twenty four, and that act would allow World War. One. Veterans to be compensated for wages that they had lost while serving in the war, they were supposed to be paid a dollar per day of stateside service and a dollar twenty, five cents per day overseas people. People who were owed less than fifty dollars paid immediately, and then for everybody else that payout was scheduled with interest in nineteen, forty five. However, the Great Depression meant that people needed their money a lot sooner than that. The bonus army called the bonus. Expeditionary Force was a group of about twenty thousand veterans many with their wives and children who went to Washington to demand immediate payout. When a measure to do so was defeated in the Senate many of the bonus army went home. Those who didn't held increasingly vocal protests over the next few weeks until federal troops dispersed them using tanks and tear gas burning down their encampment in the process. Two of the demonstrators were killed. Baby reportedly died from tear gas exposure. This incident was a blow to the reputation of President Herbert Hoover and it's been cited as one of the reasons he lost the election against Franklin D. Roosevelt but the chemical weapons service and Edgewood arsenal call this clearing of the The demonstrators a practical field test something that showed the power of tear gas to disperse even the most dedicated dissenters with at least in their view, minimal harm. Lake Erie chemical even used photos of the clearing of the Bonus Army as part of its marketing materials. The popularity of tear-gas, really spread from their sales reps from American chemical manufacturers, visited places, both domestically, and internationally, that were experiencing unrest to sell tear gas to private citizens, business owners, and law enforcement. Various governments, businesses and organizations also started stockpiling tear gas in case of future need, for example, between nineteen, thirty, three and nineteen, thirty, seven, one, point, two, five, million dollars, worth of tier and sickening gas had been bought in the US in anticipation of labor strikes. Of course, there were certainly times that tear gas was used because of actual crime or violence that was happening, but often it was really just focused on suppressing dissent. Also that one point, five, million dollars. That is the nineteen thirty dollars that is not adjusted for modern currency. Chemical warfare didn't see nearly the kind of use during world. War. Two, that it had during World War One although chemical weapons were used in death camps. Under the Nazi regime in terms of combat use, it just was not present in the same way. But after the war tear-gas continued to be a primary tool for suppressing protests, dispersing strikers and the like. Over the years it also shifted again in how it was used back in the nineteen thirties, tear-gas had started out mainly perceived as a last resort when the only other option might be firearms or other more lethal weapons, and then as we noted, it became more of a first line of defense used early to disperse and demoralize bob or other crowd. But by the civil, rights, movement in the nineteen. Fifties. Fifties and sixties, it was being used as a precursor to other violence, for example, on bloody Sunday during the Selma to Montgomery March in nineteen sixty, five state troopers deployed forty canisters of tear gas, twelve smoke canisters and eight canisters of nausea gas before then beating the marchers with their nightsticks and other weapons. This included fracturing the skull of the late John Lewis the nineteen sixties also saw some of Of the first uses of tear gas as more of an offensive weapon, including the use of a National Guard helicopter to spray demonstrators at Berkeley with tear gas nineteen, sixty, nine, this. Of course also allowed the.

"One, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one. So I'll tear gas was used against the miners in the battle of Blair Mountain. It wasn't by these federal troops, it was by force rallied by mine operators in the local sheriff. The. Miners mostly surrendered after the federal troops arrived before the weapons from edgewood arsenal were used freeze did take the opportunity to test some of their tear gas weapons after this, and the CWS used the results of those tests to publish provisional instructions for the control of mobs by chemical warfare, which came out in nineteen, twenty, one, the Department of War reinstated that prohibition on tear gas against civilians not long after this. Freeze, CWS, and various trade publications kept on with their PR efforts to try to sway opinions about tear-gas list included in November twenty, six, nine, hundred, twenty, one article in gas age record, which described freeze says quote firmly convinced that as soon as officers of the law and colonial administrators have familiarized themselves with gas as a means of maintaining order and power. There will be such a diminution of violent social disorders and savage uprisings to amount to their disappearance. a lot of the language and these PR efforts was racist like a lot of it was about maintaining the power of colonial authorities over the people who had been colonized with the colonized people being like savage barbarians, it was gross. The chemical. Warfare Service also cooperated with private businesses giving chemical manufacturers, samples of gases. The CWS had developed and allowing these manufacturers to test their products at edgewood arsenal. The CWS also lobbied against international treaties that jeopardized its work including the nineteen, twenty, two treaty relating to the use of submarines and noxious gases which was signed by five nations, but did not become binding because France didn't ratify it. Yeah, I. Think we've mentioned on the show before that with trees. There's usually this two step process where like nation signed the treaty, but then their individual governments have to ratify the treaty. And so this had been signed but not ratified. Although that nineteen treaty was worded in a way that seemed to prohibit chemical weapons, then public opinion continued to be on the side of an outright ban on all chemical weapons, freeze and the CWS. Kept on making a case that tear and other so-called nontoxic gases we're in exception. In August of Nineteen, twenty, two, the word apartment again lifted the prohibition on the use of tear-gas by federal troops and civil disturbances. By, this point tear gas was also becoming way more common in civilian law enforcement. As well as we mentioned earlier, the first private tear-gas manufacturer had started operations in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one, by nineteen, twenty-three police were equipped with tear gas in more than six hundred cities around the United States. The Chemical Warfare Service's ongoing efforts to frame chemical weapons as humane also had another totally different outcome during these years. The US. Saw Its first execution by gas chamber on February eighth. Nineteen, twenty four and nineteen, twenty, five, the Geneva gas protocol prohibited the use of chemical and biological weapons in war. The US signed the protocol, but didn't actually ratify it until nineteen, seventy five. It wasn't long before nations outside of the US. We're also using tear gas to disperse MOMS and suppress dissent. We'll talk more about that after a sponsor break.

"Conventional weapons and he believed that the United States would be unprepared again, if it didn't continue to research and develop them. Of course, he also wanted to protect the service that he was working for. He thought that if he could convince the public that chemical weapons had peacetime uses and they were safe and effective for those uses that then it would de stigmatize their use in war, he hoped that stigma removed, the public would allow and even encourage chemical warfare. That would mean that the chemical warfare service would not just survive the postwar downsizing of the military. It would also for chemical weapons and the CWS to become a really central part of American, military strategy. He imagined a military in which every unit had its own dedicated chemical squad with the most up-to-date advanced chemical weapons, as well as tactics and protective equipment all at their disposal. So freeze successfully lobbied for the military to keep the CWS. The CWS started a trade publication called chemical warfare, which published articles arguing that chemical weapons were less traumatic to the body and less lethal than conventional weapons. But of course, this all glossed over the fact that many of the chemical weapons that have been developed for use in World War One were formulated specifically to kill people freeze. Freeze rallied support from the American chemical society, professional chemistry journals, and various chemistry programs. He and his supporters also pushed the idea that all wore was terrible. But then a lot of the resistance to chemical warfare specifically was just that people were not used to it yet, the way that they were used to things like guns, artillery and bombs. The CW ASS. Also look for other uses for the gases that had been developed for the war like home security systems that released toxic gas when they were activated or the use of chemical weapons to fight agricultural pests. After someone noticed that workers, a chlorine gas plant had fewer cases of the nineteen, eighteen pandemic flu they explored whether chlorine gas could prevent illness especially, lung infections. This involved intentionally exposing people to low doses of chlorine gas. One of the test cases was President Calvin, coolidge? Who underwent three consecutive treatments from May? Twentieth to Twenty Second Nineteen Twenty. Four. The. President said that his cold got better as a result although it should be noted that colds typically get better on their own none of these proposed peacetime uses for chemical weapons really took off what did take off though was tear gas as we've talked about in several other episodes of the show, the US and other places went through major. Economic upheaval after world, war, one strikes and other labor disputes were widespread, which we've covered on several previous episodes. So was mob violence especially targeted against black people and their communities, which we have also talked about in several episodes including our episode on Red. Summer. Starting in early nineteen, nineteen freeze and the chemical warfare service started framing tear gas as ideal solution for these types of unrest. However, the Department of war which had been planning to dismantle the CWS was not in favor of this in February of Nineteen nineteen. The war department ordered the CWS not to provide any type of chemical weapon including tear gas to any civilian or military law enforcement personnel. But at the same time, people and departments were petitioning the Department of war to be allowed to use tear gas on civilians. This included in October nineteen nineteen request to use chemical devices on striking steel workers in Gary, Indiana and various requests from law enforcement who wanted to use it or have it on hand for so called race riots, we've talked about why that phrases problematic many times before. Even as the Department of war maintained that it would not allow chemical weapons to be used against residents of the United States. The chemical warfare service was designing and testing devices to use chemical agents for crowd control in one, thousand, nine, twenty. The National Defense Act, which was also known as the Second Army reorganization bill established a new organizational structure for the US Army, and in addition to other things, this act formalized the chemical warfare service as part of the Army CWS Director William l? Siebert was reassigned and he retired shortly after that. This is something that a lot of people interpreted as a punishment for the CWS having pushed back so hard against the Department of wars efforts to dismantle it. Taking his place was General Amos freeze to be clear. The CWS was still doing military work including advocating for training supplies and a gas company for each overseas garrison. Freeze also continued to advocate for chemical warfare to be a standard part of every union. But there was still a lot of focus on peacetime use of chemical weapons, as we said, earlier to try to sway public opinion on chemical weapons in general and to protect the CWS from being declared irrelevant in the face of that ongoing stigma and the potential for international treaties banning their use. This was in spite of the fact to the Department of war, still wouldn't approve the use of chemical weapons on civilians that last part changed in. Nineteen. Twenty. One. After Warren g harding was sworn in as president of the US, he appointed John W weeks as secretary of war. John J. pershing became chief of staff that July and pershing was the person who had appointed freeze to the gas service back during the war. Free started advocating for changes to how the Department of war was approaching chemical warfare specifically with civilians and as part of this freeze arranged for a demonstration outside of Philadelphia, and which about two hundred police officers tried and failed to make their way through a cloud of tear gas in August of Nineteen, twenty, one freeze conducted another demonstration this time on a group of girl scouts from nearby camp, Bradley. The one of whom was his daughter Elizabeth. The scouts took a tour of edgewood Arsenal during which they were exposed to tear gas. This visit was written up in the Washington Post in article. That read quote. The girls found that the name tear gas was no misnomer as all cried copiously for a few seconds. When the gas was released, they greatly enjoyed the trip and put it down as one of the red letter events of the camp. There's a lot that's not clear about this whole outing, but the general sense seems to be the tear gas was both effective and that it was safe enough to use on girl scouts that. Weirdest PR stunt, there's this whole thing so much in that. I tweeted about and people were like that. Excuse me. What would what were they even thinking and I was, I, they were thinking that they were trying to show the public that like, yeah. It's totally okay to tear gas little girls. Anyway. The War Department lifted its prohibition on the use of chemical weapons against civilians, but only for agents like tear gases that were not considered poisonous and August of nineteen, twenty, one. Resident Response to a request from the governor of West, Virginia for help restoring order during an ongoing series of labor disputes in its mining industry. These series of disputes or something that we have covered previously and our episode on the Battle of Blair Mountain. During the first week of September nineteen, twenty, one, the chemical warfare service deployed soldiers, and prepared an assortment of C., N. Gas devices from edgewood arsenal including a thousand grenades, three hundred, fifty mortar shells, and one hundred, ninety, one aerial drop bombs. By this point, tear gas was also available from private manufacturers. The first of these was called chemical protection was established in.

"Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm Tracy e Wilson and I'm Holly Fry. I was feeling like the episodes I had picked for the art. gasped not all of them, but a lot of them were trending toward the heavier side. I went on a hunt to try to find something that would be more fun and I really felt like I had seen something recently at J. Store daily that had been that magical blend of just like really interesting and really fun sounding, and I went over there. To look for it. And that is where everything went awry because what I clicked on instead was an article about the use of tear gas against the nineteen, thirty, two bonus army. we are approaching the end of July. Twenty twenty as we record this and tear gas has been in use and in the news a whole whole lot. So. That is not a fun topic that is what wound up completely commandeering my attention. I have been conscious that we've been doing a lot of dark thing. So I keep trying to pick things. And then when you were like I'm doing. So they late like the next day, you like tear gas as well. And, you're, you're one that we're GONNA be recording next in the session also, not one of the happier topics we. We just went down a path this week, it's a mix, it's a mix of Kooky and. There's for sure some Kookiness in your one, but here we are on tear gas. So tear gases or lack remainder agents are named for the lacrimosa glands which secrete tears. But tears are really just one small part of it. Exposure to most here. Gases affects the mucous membranes and the respiratory system, and it also activates one of two pain receptors in the body. In addition to causing the is to tear up, tear gas can cause burning of the skin eyes, mouth and nose. I think sometimes, people don't realize that when they just see it reported on the news, it also causes blurred vision drooling and. And difficulty swallowing wheezing shortness of breath choking and chess tightness rashes as well as nausea and vomiting tear gas exposure is also associated with miscarriages, and in some cases, it can be lethal especially in babies, elders and people with conditions like asthma, the devices that are used to deploy tear gas can also cause injuries and deaths if they or their pieces hit someone. Yeah. Even when that does not happen, it's it's like it's immediately incapacitating. It's. It's not just something that like Oh, your eyes tearing up and maybe you want to move to rush air I'm uncomfortable. I should walk away. It's like, no, you're down. Right right. So all all of these substances are grouped together and they're called tear-gas. They're not really gases. One of the ones that's most commonly used today is cs or to Kluber Zilla Dean modern natural, and it is solid at room temperature. There's also CNN or chloro- acetone known, and that's also known as Mace. That's a crystalline substance that is propelled as a liquid or as a very powder. Pepper spray or? CAPSICUM is an oily resin that's extracted from hot peppers. To, be clear it not food. It's usually propelled as a pressurized liquid, and then there are other ones as well. Including CR or diving socks zapping and also refined versions of CS known as CS. Two or C. X. There are also various canisters and grenades and other devices dispersed. Not as gases, but as aerosolize liquids are powders and those liquids, powders can remain on the skin clothing and surfaces long after they have dispersed from the air tear gases that are used for things like riot control and crowd suppression today trace back to chemical warfare in World War, one, which is something that was controversial from the beginning. Societies have made various efforts to establish rules for warfare throughout history in terms of what we're talking about today in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A series of multinational conventions led Tu treaties that outlined various rules of war. One of the first of these was in Saint Petersburg Russia in eighteen sixty eight resulting in a declaration that started with the idea quote that the progress of civilization should have the effect of alleviating as much as possible. The calamities of war more specifically, a declaration that was issued during The Hague Convention of Eighteen Ninety nine nodded back to the sentiments that holly just read from the Declaration of Saint. Petersburg. From there. This new declaration required signatories to quote agree to abstain from the use of projectiles, the object of which is the diffusion of s fixating or deleterious gases. Than on. October eighteenth of nineteen thousand, seven, Another Hague Convention stated that it was forbidden to quote, employ poison or poisoned weapons. These directives grew out of a fear of chemical warfare that had grown in tandem with the industrial revolution and an overall, really long lasting taboo against poison and other chemical weapons as basically unfair and uncivilized. These treaties didn't stop nations from researching chemicals that could be used as some kind of weapon though France in particular had signed The Hague declarations, but also developed tear gases for use in riot control home. Then in World War One France used tear-gas grenades to try to drive German troops out of the trenches, the battle of frontiers in nineteen fourteen. Germany, which was also a signatory to these treaties also tried something similar against allied troops that October. Neither of these efforts was particularly effective though with targeted troops, not even realizing that they were under attack. So some sources do not count these as the first use of chemical warfare in World War One. So these and other early efforts sort of danced around The Hague convention. The Gases in question were meant to temporarily incapacitate people not to permanently injure or kill them on the other hand. The whole point of that temporary incapacitation was to leave the targets vulnerable to attacks with more conventional weapons in April of.

"Listen to. It's been a minute from NPR. This is on point. I'm magnet chocolate. Birdie. We are talking this hour about the story of tear gas. It's been around for more than a century. It's banned for use in as a weapon of war and yet at the same time. For domestic law enforcement to use it here in the United States. We're trying to understand why and I'm joined today by Professor Anna Feigenbaum with us from poole England. She's author of tear gas from the battlefields of World War One to the streets of today and professor. If you can just hang on for a little bit here, one now welcome into the conversation. BRAXTON WINSTON BRAXTON joins us from Charlotte North, Carolina he's a member at large in the Charlotte City Council and last Monday on June Eighth Charlotte City. Council passed a resolution banning the purchase of chemical agents by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department for the next year. Braxton Winston welcome to on point. mcnutt, thank you for having me. Well so first of all. You recently wrote in The Washington Post, a piece that was headlined. Being teargassed never leaves you so I'm wondering if we could start there, you've been through the experience. Can you tell us that story I? Yes well. My story would mirror the story that was told at the top of our by Mr Boscombe. It is something as he said. That shakes one's understanding of what it means to be a citizen. Would it does is it uses the tactics of violence pain in fear? These tactics that of course are endemic of policing in the overall idea of government involvement in community safety in America over time, and it uses punitive of punitive controls. Every we rely on as Feigenbaum has said to try to break down the morale of the crowds I was to your guest are exposed to chemical agents for hours. Experienced the many of those same tactics in two thousand. Sixteen September Twentieth Two Thousand Sixteen they were flash bangs concussion grenades, forty millimeter around shot from water cannons Stinger grenades, pepper ball rounds all individually and all at the same time, and they create a trauma in you and in the community that lasts forever that that that that never leaves. It incites more violence because that is the literal a physical reaction that should get you know. Your Body convulses your your body starts. To to quit on on yourself honestly feels like you're inside are coming out in your mind kind of gets. Disjointed from from your body. But also they, there is a certain pointlessness to these these. these tools. Become unuseful to law enforcement. If you resist right if you are not if you do not express that fear if you do not scatter when those explosions happened, all of a sudden, a law enforcement on tool of fear and violence are no longer useful. May resort nate resort to other other tactics, unfortunately well, if I may ask so in two thousand sixteen. This happened to you when you you stopped by a protests that was going on in Charlotte. The death of Keith, Lamont, Scott that right. You're smart. Okay, and I want because how this happened is also just as important professor Feigenbaum list. It's been talking about this as as a psychological tool as well and and and so you had there was a there were there was a gathering of people just outside or just near where Mr Scott had been had been shot, had been shot and killed and you, you drove by I should say shot and killed by police. Yes ma'am! This man keep him on Scott was waiting for his children's. Get off the school bus as he did every day in this apartment complex, the police were there to serve a warrant in that complex when somebody else ave drew the Mr Scott drew their attention on and within thirty seconds they have broken out his car window and shot him dead on the floor in front of his wife, who was pleading for them to stop I was coming home from work and I i. You know this was the summer twenty sixteen, so was very charged national political climate that was wild Ferguson? It was after Trayvon. and I wanted to see some of the things about what happened to myself and I heard the people. The community a decided to take a stand on. They wanted to have those policy conversations. They want an answer as now. They didn't want to talk to the police. They wanted to talk. To the mayor, the city council members anybody can make changes, and instead of those folks coming up, we were met with a police with riot control agents in. Riot gear and they did not want us to be there, so they started to those chemical agents for us to leave, and we did. We resisted at on that started a week a week of protests I'm here in Charlotte where dozens of munitions were. A put out on peaceful protesters I sued the city and our police department after that Federal Court to try to get an injunction. But again this is something that has been driving me in its trauma that I live with every day. Now when you filed the federal lawsuit, this the city itself in response to that did put a as you right. They did put a halt on using these using tear-gas for a year, and then and then what happened. Well I I believe we. We have not seen that. Tear gas, all those chemical ages being dispersed after that week in two thousand sixteen until until a couple of weeks ago about twenty one days ago. I here in Charlotte, when I protested first gathering started happening. Here in Charlotte I went out again to try to. At the escalate certain situations where. Police Department, decided on my services. Weren't welcome. An Mba arrested me as I was trying to direct people out of harm's way as they were deploying those chemical agents. So they might have stopped using it for you, but they had it and then began using it again as you just said so, what did the city council do then recently Mr Winston? On June eighth. We. We were already on the already on our agenda to adopt our fiscal year budget. Prioritizes on when he will be spent so I added a an amendment to that budget, which disallows our police department from using fiscal dollars in the twenty twenty one. FOR FOR For using any of that money to acquire new or maintain existing stocks, chemical agents that are used for crowd control person. We also set up. A process? That charges the council and the city manager to work at all times scrutinizing adjust police spending overall policy implementation because we know. That we cannot change a police behavior tactics or Simply, by making one motion or changing policy, we have comprehensive look. And make adjustments about happy operating Tuesday hoops. But to be clear just just because I don't want there to be any confusion about this. The move by the city council still does not explicitly explicitly prevent the Charlotte Mecklenburg. Police Roma from using tear-gas correct again. That was the important part of the second part of the man. Is that you know it? Stopping them from buying for a year does not do anything about the existing stocks. It does not change the policy of how operate around crowd control in crowd. Dispersal again best needs to be depot policy discussion on, and we know that there are ways that police departments can acquire things without using fiscal methods right. There's policies that allow police department assisted trade with other police departments, so if CFP the size of Of they have a car to that. They don't want any more. They can go in trade it to. Let's say Greens. Boroughs a police department for let's say chemical agents so again. The important part is most important for each is a second part where we are inserting a democracy into the policy. Making of our police departments in that is something that hasn't been done here in Charlotte even though we all always had the political ability to do so well professor. Feigenbaum you've been listening patiently and I and I am grateful for that. Do you WanNa? Just respond to some of the things you've been hearing Braxton, east and say. Yeah, it's a fascinating troubling story, but also all too common both in Contemporary Times as well as throughout history and I think it really.

"Nathan Baka. He's an investigative reporter. At W. USA nine in Washington DC. So why can domestic law enforcement use tear gas on citizens when it's banned as a weapon of war? That is the question we want to explore this hour. And joining us to help us do that. Is Anna Feigenbaum author of the Book Tear Gas from the battlefields of World War One to the streets of today. She's also associate professor of communication and digital media at Bournemouth University's Talbot campus in southern England and she joins us from poole England welcome to on point. So first and foremost just want to pick up where Nathan left off. What we do know is that in the days after that June, first protest and police action, all of the law enforcement agencies US law enforcement agencies involved there including the US Park Service police. The bureau prisons the secret, service CETERA. They all denied using tear gas on the protesters. In subsequent days, part of those denials were walked back. for example, a spokesperson for the Park Service. Police said I'm not going to say that pepper balls don't irritate you. I'm not saying it's not tear gas, but I'm just saying that we use pepper balls that shoot a powder, so first of all help us understand. Is there a meaningful difference between the types of materials that law enforcement use that are broadly called tear gas. So dear, gas is an umbrella term, and it's really just a kind of euphemism for what is a toxic chemical agent. And over time we've had different kinds of these toxic chemical agents developed so currently we use kind of what generally seen as two sets, one poverty, no C., which more frequently get called pepper sprays. However, that is misleading because they can be a powder. Just as in that case, then we have our what usually get called tear gases which are see us less often CR, NCAA and also last often see is really the widely used one that too can be distributed as a powder, or as an aerosol, and we normally have. With the smoke that is what makes it look like gas, but that's not necessarily exclusive. So from a kind of chemical composition side of things they can actually be dispersed in deployed in more or less similar ways in terms of if you're the person that's being hit by these things, there's not going to be a huge difference. On which chemical it is, that has been used. There'll be a difference whether you're sprayed in the face, or whether you're in big clouds of gas, or whether like with the those steam ball grenades. You're having pellets shot at you or with. Your have been pellet shot you as well as having the gas, so the ways in which you're going to be hit by. Something is going to matter more if you're the person being hit than the actual composition of those different. Okay so that the delivery mechanism we talking about there. I'm seeing here that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Call C. N. and CS gases, the most common quote Kurokawa, most common forms of tear gas, and as you heard Nathan described there, they were picking up canisters that were labelled as such right off the street in in Washington, so which one of these are all of these? The ones that are banned for use by soldiers in war. So all of those would be classified as chemical agents that are banned in the use of war, and there's a couple important stipulations that are why we have that distinction particularly in the context of the United States, so for the United States. What makes that justification of those distinctions is that they say it's banned in warfare ofensive purposes so it shouldn't be used as. A weapon in the way that you would have, you would go in, and you would fire missiles. It shouldn't be used in that way offensively and hang on for just a second, because we do have to take a quick break and I'll let you pick up. That thought on the nuances here when we get back, so we are talking this hour about the story of tear gas, and why it's.

Wyoming part number six, one seven zero on, June, first, he was in Lafayette Square reporting on a major protests near the White House that evening president trump. Trump walked to saint. John's Episcopal Church for a photo op, and just before seven PM. Law enforcement officers from at least three agencies cleared protesters from the area for the President's walk Nathan picked up the canisters that had been fired at protesters by the police. You know what it looks like. It looks like a shotgun Shell, a very big silver medal shotgun shell. When you look in the inside, you see it, says scored and scorched, because something was launched there with some powder, and it exploded out. Soldiers cannot use tear gas on the battlefield, but domestic law enforcement can use it on American streets why? Well. That is the question we are exploring this our.

"You know you have to understand that the history of riot control is also a marketing history. You know these are products. It's a set of technologies that is obsessed with innovation and money comes from very small and incremental changes and upgrades, and so it's useful to think about right control in a similar way that we would think of any kind of technology that is. Is constantly being upgraded and re marketed to us. Only the police are the buyers. So what are the different ways that we see? Police deployed tear gas during protests. Yes, right now we're seeing things that one company calls it the Ballerina grenade, so it bounces up and down on the floor, and that was actually intentionally designed to stop with the police call throwback. With protesters pick up a canister and throw it back at police lines. Though very often, protesters are actually pickup canisters to just remove them and get them out of the way. To not harm people. Something we see, it received a lot in the US right now, which are is a brand that's called pepper bowl, and that's the thing that looks like a paintball. The actually comes out of a machine gun device in order to be able to fire, lots and lots of pellets at a high frequency of people, and that was also developed in order to be able to hit more parts. Parts of someone's body because the larger impact munitions ones that we normally call rubber bullets, those you're supposed to be very careful about where you fire someone because they can cause a lotta damage, they kill people sometimes right. Yeah, so the big ones. If they hit someone in the head, they can kill or if they hit a vital organ, whereas the little pepper balls because they're smaller. They like it's, it's really disturbing to look at their early marketing material, because basically like we've developed something that you can now just use to like hit people a lot more. What exactly does tear gas? Due to the human body, the effects of teargas go well beyond making people cry. They are intentionally designed to actually cause psychological trauma and physical pain, so trying to get people to do what you want by causing them as much pain and harm as possible without leaving lasting injury, so that is the goal in general of riot control technologies. What are the long term effects of tear gas the medical research on the long term effects of gas are. Themselves a very politically contentious area. The majority of studies that are done on tear gas have been conducted by the military manufacturers, so it's very difficult to find independent studies. The small independent studies do exist point towards a concern that tear gas might cause lasting respiratory damage that it could worsen asthma, and we know that it does definitely have worse effects for people with asthma. Okay, so there's still a lot of questions about the impact of tear gas, and I'm assuming that that is also dose dependent. Right if you're. You'RE GONNA go to multiple protests and encountered multiple times. The impact might be stronger on you in the long-term, but we don't really know so. We would know that if you encounter multiple times, the impact will be worst. The thing that really makes it worse is how much is fired and in how enclosed of a space, and so where we see sort of maths, death mass injury from tear gas is when it's been fired into a really small enclosed space, the back of a truck, a prison cell a car. Children have died from going inside of a house. And so if it's used on people in those kind of confined spaces, you're much more likely to have a serious injury. The other way of course that people get really harmed by tear gas is when they get hit with the canisters. The grenades themselves. So Ana, I can't help, but point out you know. This is called a nonlethal tool and yet you've just mentioned that it does in fact, kill people. Is that my hearing that right? Yes, there's also a lot of contention over the term nonlethal. And that's why there's been an argument that we should call them less lethal instead with the idea that they're less likely to kill rather than that. They are somehow incapable of killing, but what I tend to ask when this terminology comes up is, can you please describe to me what a less lethal death looks like? It truly is. Extremely startling very scary. Yeah, and that's a really important part of its design that it is so scary, startling and traumatizing, and that you remember that moment of having happened to the first time or the hundredth time. And it was designed intentionally to be like that it was supposed to make you feel like you were dying, and at that was why you had to disperse. That's why you had to get away. Also in early advertisements, we see this idea that it makes the protesters choke and cry, and they look silly, and they look stupid, and that's really useful for police propaganda. Wow, okay, so actually just trying to embarrass protesters and make them look dumb. Yeah, and what they used to call because of course was the nine hundred twentieth, so what they used to call destroy the mob spirit teargas was intentionally designed to make people afraid to make them not want to go and be part of protest. To to fear, what would be like to be in that assembled space? If people are in a situation where they might be exposed to tear gas. Is there anything we can do to protect themselves? So tear gas because it gets into your eyes, and because it gets in through your nose, and you're in your mouth. Anything that covers those parts of your face would help prevent it from. Being as painful, the only study that's been done in kind of academic world says that water is by far the best thing to us to flesh out of your eyes to clean off your skin. You know there's all these formulas that go around and. I luckily have not been tear gassed multiple times and tried all of those formulas so I think we also need to say activists, knowledge versus academic knowledge here, but the only study that does exist says use water. Wow, okay because I've seen. People use a lot of milk in the US I. also have a friend who recently told me that lemon juice helps. So there's no evidence that that might be better than water. There's no. Peer reviewed scientific evidence. That says that the lemon thing has been going on since the very very beginning urine is the other one. I don't know if you want that in your podcast. Yes I definitely want that in my podcast. Are you kidding I definitely don't want anything coming back. If a bunch of people start peeing on each other after this fight gust cool I will I will take the brunt of those emails..

"I. This is my friend. Chris was telling me this sounds very much like if you're familiar with the story in in after Solomon Dies boom, his son becomes the air the tribes of Israel get together with them, and say look at your your father made our yoke heavy now therefore lightened heart services, your father, and his heavy yoke on us, and we will serve you in Robe Brigham told him to go away for three days, and he asked the old man what they should do in the olden, said you know your father really did treat them badly. Lighten the load. And they will serve you loyally. And then rebe masks the young men, and the young men said, don't line their load. Make it even harder and punish them. Your father punish them with whips. You punish them with Scorpions and bone took the advice of the young guys. And when Israel came back, boom said I'm going to punish you with Scorpions where my father punish you with whips I'm GonNa tax you even more? And what happened, Israel said screw you guy. And they went up and started a new kingdom in the end the divided kingdom last until Israel fell. I'm afraid that Donald Trump is listening to young advisors, the island of misfit toys, the guys who were never successful politics, and hitched their wagon to Donald. Trump early and in hitching their wagon Donald Trump. he he's listened to. They've been the loyal ones, and he's not listening to the old guard Gop. He suspicious of them. They're suspicious of him. Neither of them like each other but I I don't know that listen to the one, or the other is going to get him very far I just I that. Giving that speech last night while tear-gas was raining down on the protesters behind the White House, and then walking over to the church, just to hold the Bible in the air. That added nothing to his coalition. And made some of the people I know some of them. Who? They're willing to hold their nose and vote for him, but it made them squeamish. And you can hate him, and you could say well. They're not. They're not true. Maga- heads and they were never going to afford, but he's he only one by seventy thousand votes. In Pennsylvania Michigan Wisconsin. Don't want Joe. Biden judicial picks. I don't want Joe Biden to replace Ruth. Bader Ginsburg I. Want Donald Trump to do that. I don't want Joe Biden's tax policy. I WON'T DONALD TRUMP's tax policy. I don't want Joe Biden's foreign policy and what Donald Trump's foreign policy. But I'm worried if he keeps going down this path with a strategy strategy. Listening to the young guys who just trying to win the news cycle as opposed to win the election. That it's GONNA end badly for all of us, and that's really really really a problem, Neil. A Augustine is a reporter for W. Cop the news. Radio Station in Washington DC. It's all news all the time. Let me read you this twitter threat. He's put up. US Park police explaining its decision making including clearing Lafayette Square at least twenty minutes before DC, seven PM. Curfew on night for the protests, a source says tear gas was never used instead smoke canisters were deployed which don't have an uncomfortable irritant in them. The source says Park. Police didn't know president. Trump would be walking across the park. Several minutes later park. Police say the reason. The crowd was dispersed with smoke canisters. Canisters is that at that moment? Officers were being pelted with water bottles. Another factor was that the protesters had climbed on top of the structure of the North into Lafayette Square that had been burned the day before. Obviously, this is the park police side of the story. I'll be checking with deputy. OPIE reports all the see last night to plug in what they observe with the park police. You're telling me police. Police will be released day. Obviously, folks in the White House will be asked today about the president's walk across Lafayette, Square to St Johns Episcopal Church, but my part police sources. The agency made his decision to you. Smoke canisters at that moment because of what was being thrown at the officers, not because president trump planned to make an unannounced walk to the park park. Police will be releasing a statement later today we. We will keep asking questions in theory, it's possible. Another agency used tear-gas in addition to park police uses canisters, but my source on the scene gotTA dosa smoke, but didn't feel the irritants of tear-gas. Clearly, the phrase tear gas has been used widely in the reporting so okay, so no tear gas, Ju-, smoke canisters and according to the park police. They're doing it twenty minutes before seven PM. Because a curfew, okay? Perfect. Still terrible optics for the president to then at the end of his speech say now I'm going to go visit a very special place and use an army of of security agents to form a barricade with the crowd, so he can walk to the to do the the church to hold up the Bible. There's also does show you in the heat of the moment. How much the media does! Get wrong so okay. No tear gas. Tear Gas, okay? But the optics y'all you do we live in Shallow Society of stupid people. You do have to worry about the optics of this sort of stuff. and. That's.
