Tear Gas Talk

There has been much discussion in the City of Albany about their police force’s use of tear gas and other militaristic methods to quell protests following George Floyd’s murder last Spring. The Common Council is proposing a ban on such methods, with an amendment allowing for the use of tear gas in hostage situations. Public comment rose to new levels at a hearing on Monday night, April 5. The matter comes up for a vote on April 19.
