“I think other parts of it was the human rights violations that was done by law enforcement officers there against the protesters who were peacefully protesting and they just massacred them. Not with bullets, but with mace and the acoustic sounds they made. It’s made for terrorist attacks to basically rupture eardrums. They had all kinds of sophisticated military stuff out there. The acoustic sound device; they use it for riots. It’s made to just basically shatter your eardrums.”
Ken Blackbird, Interview excerpt, March 2018
