@Korgasm_ I've been watching your videos from yesterday in Houston for #OccupyThePorts

@Korgasm_ Great work. I had a quick question - was it confirmed that the police and firefighters gassed folks in that big, red tent?
_ @deadprescience
@cjohanns It was an air tank used to inflate the tent structure. This has been clarified many times over the last 24 hours but no one seems

@Korgasm_ I heard someone saying over and over again that it was an air tank in the video.
Cryn Johannsen πŸ†˜ @Cryn_Johannsen
@Korgasm_ unfortunately, people are still tweeting that they were gassed.
_ @deadprescience
@cjohanns to notice or pay attention to mine or @Ghostpickles timelines. Hopefully I'm done clarifying now. No annoyance toward you, fyi.
Cryn Johannsen πŸ†˜ @Cryn_Johannsen
@Korgasm_ None taken. I guess I should have looked at your timeline. Sorry! Busy as hell, and just thought I'd ask.
_ @deadprescience
@cjohanns Just tired of populace in general spazzing out over it. If they'd look closely, they'd find the truth. I suppose that is a ...
Cryn Johannsen πŸ†˜ @Cryn_Johannsen
@Korgasm_ Understood. It's disturbing the way they blanket the protesters with the tent. It's secretive.
Cryn Johannsen πŸ†˜ @Cryn_Johannsen
@Korgasm_ but it's bad to spread misinformation around like that.
_ @deadprescience
@cjohanns reflection of our education systems on the whole though. No one taught to think for themselves. Just debt incurred and cattle we

@Korgasm_ I also think people are very much on edge right now, and Twitter can be a dangerous place for that! :)
_ @deadprescience
@cjohanns are, led blindly to the slaughter, thinking this is how it's supposed to be, what we're made for ... I wish there were more like

@cjohanns I was part of that flap about the canister, to be honest. Here's the discussion I had re: the gas. http://t.co/M2Ez8Ghc h/t @M9196

@cjohanns you and I. Alas, I severely digress. :P
Cryn Johannsen πŸ†˜ @Cryn_Johannsen
@Korgasm_ Well, people are just freaked out. So, I give 'em the benefit of the doubt. Keep up the good work!

@cjohanns @Korgasm_ The problem is that even though we had no evidence of gas being used against them it doesn't mean it could not happen
_ @deadprescience
@cjohanns Agreed. The reason I got so agitated yesterday was precisely because people fly into rumor-mode instead of fact-checking mode.
Cryn Johannsen πŸ†˜ @Cryn_Johannsen
@Korgasm_ Gotcha. It is important, as you and I both know, to provide the facts.
Cryn Johannsen πŸ†˜ @Cryn_Johannsen
@Korgasm_ Otherwise, it just becomes fear-mongering, and that's what we're against!
🏴 Exceedingly Unseelie πŸ–€ Anti-Brexit Dissident @der_bluthund
@cjohanns @Korgasm_ The fact that we're still asking legitimate questions about what actually did happen under that tent shows this unease
_ @deadprescience
@der_bluthund @cjohanns Evidence was collected by people on the ground (me and others). It was there for all to see that it was an air tank.
🏴 Exceedingly Unseelie πŸ–€ Anti-Brexit Dissident @der_bluthund
@cjohanns @Korgasm_ We're now actually concerned that our governments may one day actually gas protesters down
Cryn Johannsen πŸ†˜ @Cryn_Johannsen
@der_bluthund of cousre! We are all concerned about the what-ifs, especially with #NDAA and so forth. @Korgasm_
_ @deadprescience
@der_bluthund @cjohanns Anything could happen. A cow could've fallen from the sky but doesn't mean it would happen. #ridiculous
