Tear gas is banned in international warfare — and in use in Ferguson, MO
In case anyone didn’t know, the use of tear gas was banned in international warfare at the Geneva Convention. These are human rights violations, people. Ferguson PD needs to be put in front of a UN board as war criminals. They are also arresting and detaining journalists.
it is legal to use for domestic “riot control” though. convenient.
everyday i remember that my favorite conan nerd is the guy who thinks wearing a black onesie to a koushien game is a great idea
If you’re wondering what “rubber bullets” are and what they look like this is it. This is what Ferguson police are shooting and the peaceful protesters. This is what’s making gaping holes inside of the protesters.

1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson
1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson
1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson
1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson
1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]
People trying to go home, get detained

New Lupin III: The Musical details emerge!
Today we have learnt some exciting new information on the upcoming Lupin III musical. The all-female show will be performed by Takarazuka Revue and will begin showings during January, 2015.
The musical’s title has now been revealed - it’s called 『ルパン三世 ―王妃の首飾りを追え！―』which translates to Lupin III ~ Chase After the Queen’s Necklace! ~
The show is to be performed by the Snow Troupe, led by Top Star actress Sagiri Seina as Lupin III. The female lead role, actress Sakihi Miyu, will play the character Marie Antoinette. Queen’s Necklace will also conclude with a Revue show, titled Fancy Guy.
So far there is no further information on the story, although it promises to be filled with romance and adventure. Only a small preview image has been released so far - but expect to see a full sized poster very soon.
Considering the title and the attire of Marie Antoinette, we can only speculate that we will see Lupin travelling back through time to steal a precious treasure.
Our lovely reporter, Leonnielim, plans to visit the troupe and see the musical at the start of next year. She hopes to compose a full written review sometime afterwards, so look forward to that!
