The official Twitter handle of the Colorado Springs Police Department tweeted their displeasure at protestors donning gas masks.
The tweet claimed that they were hoping for a peaceful night. But clearly implied that those hopes were dashed because protestors donned gas masks.
Unsurprisingly, this tweet met with a lot of flak from fellow Twitteratti. Not everyone seemed to share CSPD’s displeasure at the reduced effectiveness of the tear gas retaliation.
