Short Description: -- It's your right to watch the Cops!

Though often labelled "less lethal" and claimed to be "harmless", actually many proved to be fatal, not to mention lots of them being banned in war by e.g. the Geneva Convention but nevertheless frequently used by policeforces worldwide (like e.g. Dum Dum Bullets that a.o. killed Jean Charles de Menezes, but also the so called "Tear Gas").
