New scare lie from Murdoch's NY Post - concrete filled tennis balls

Massive assault by perhaps ONE such object. (maybe...)


The NYPD are being pelted with concrete-filled tennis balls during George Floyd protests, the NYPD warned its members Sunday.
[nypost.com]

The two unidentified officers, who were following protestors Thursday after a demonstration in Union Square, were at the corner of Ninth Avenue and West 25th Street when they were pummeled with the rock-hard balls, according to an advisory obtained by The Post.

“One of the two officers was hospitalized with a contusion (bruise) to left shoulder,” it said. “Please be cognizant of all objects in persons’ hands or lying on the ground during these protests.”

“Stay safe, stay protected, and covered.”

At last one concrete-filled tennis ball has been recovered, a police source said.

The lies never stop from America's right wing agitators.

I don’t care even if it’s true.

Give protestors the padding, the shields, the guns, the unfettered access to streets, the law and just the overall power. Oh, and pay the protestors and with full benefits while you’re at it.

And then have the police whine about projectiles being thrown at them. Until then, I do not care.

It would be pretty easy to make a blob of concrete, but I just can't imagine how you would fill a tennis ball with concrete. Why would you even try?

Oh... and it's the NYP.

You would need to slit the ball and then squirt the concrete in there like cake frosting. And then wait for Ito dry.

Be easier to fill it with water and freeze.

"Ow that hurt! That ball felt like it was full of concrete!"
"Great idea! Let's say that's what happened. Then we can justify the rubber bullets and tear gas."

If your intent was to injure, wouldn’t a rock do as well without the fuss?

Rocks just aren't effective if your intent is to create fear and cast blame.
