    I think all journalists should just boycott the police press conference. They don't give answers and always just lie anyways, what's the point of it?

    I would wager that is the exact reason he is allowed out.

    Surprised they have not been pepper sprayed yet by cops asking for their press cards.

    It's like getting the murderer's statement at the police station, even if a total bunch of lies. It locks them into a narrative- if I were a defense attorney, I would make sure I have the "official statements" given at the press conference which will likely conflict with new, made-up BS at the trial if half of these sham cases even get that far. Hoping the prosecutors just "decline to prosecute" on most of these crap arrests.

    I also like to see the song and dance, the pure spectacle of the BS excuses they make. For whatever reason, CGTV keeps translating into English on YouTube...what a joke.

    Cops vs everyone else that's the mindset they have, just watch the lone fireman barley escape a beating and arrest.

    To their credit, at least they did not accuse him of being a fake fireman.

    Finally saw the video of the medic who got hit with the tear gas grenade/projectile.

    It shows him standing in an area that was apparently approved for protesting (I know that they revoked the approval at some point).
