    Brace Yourself, Aaron Sorkin is about to fuck the police again

    The new Netflix movie called the Chicago7 apparently shows the Chicago cops on the first night of the convention riots armed with shotguns (Winchester model 12s, etc). The trailer alone has three images of cops armed with long guns, one even holds a Garand rifle.
    I have watched every clip I can find from that week in 1968. The cops had night sticks, and revolvers, not long arms. The military had rifles, not the cops.
    Good or bad, the cops used night sticks on protestors, not one single report of shooting, pistol whipping or shotgun-butt teeth extractions can be found.
    This whole movie is going to be a long commercial for civil unrest and anti-cop violence.

    By the way, some of the rioters have admitted to tossing bags of human excrement at the police at the start of the rioting. To me, that sounds like a learned behavior, one learned in prison.

    Foggy, but my history teacher in 11th grade (a published historian whose focus was on Cold War/Vietnam and domestic history) had pics of Chicago PD with shotguns in his book and slide presentation in our American History class. There were long guns aplenty. As you mentioned were National Guardsman with Garlands, M-1 carbines and fixed bayonets as well.

    Edited to add...

        This is great that they are releasing a movie like this now. Just in time to get more cops killed and riots destroying cities before the election.

                It's all designed to make one re-think his support for Trumpy. You're going to see more of this shit as Nov 03 gets closer. And you'll hear the so-called unbiased newscaster warn you if you vote for Trumpy, it's only going to get worse.

                    The white helmets are cops, first two pictures. Those black jacket guys must not be regular cops, the first night at least all the street cops were in shirtsleeves.
                    A few shirtsleeve cops had shotguns with canister attachments for tear gas.
                    The other pictures you posted, (not with the round white motorcycle style helmets) are military, the National Guard was brought in.
                    Those bayonets are National Guard.

                      Second photo down, the three officers in white helmets and black jackets. Is that an M1 carbine the middle officer is holding? It looks like one to me but he is holding it like it has a pistol grip.

                        he is holding it by the mag while he pats that guy down.

                        Why? I have no clue. To me that is the least ergonomic/steady place to hold that rifle from like that...but it does keep it close to his body in case someone wants to grab it.

                          Duh, I should have recognized that. Thanks for pointing it out. I would never think of doing that because I’d assume it would frog up the functionality and cause a misdeed.

                              A few elections back the DNC was in Chicago again and some of the CPD got in trouble for wearing tshirts that said, “My father kicked your father’s ass!” Or so legend has it. I think it should have been issued to them all.
