SWAT

On the John Ireland Bridge over I-94 in St. Paul on Sept 4, at a standoff between police and RNC protesters staging a sit-in in the middle of the road (with an expired marching permit). This particular standoff ended peacefully with the protesters getting up and trying a different route, only to run into more police which eventually led to arrests, pepper spray, flashbangs, and tear gas after the sun went down.

 

EDIT: This edit is pretty bad, with not a lot of detail on the guy. I have a later version I like better here: SWAT revisited
