    Does anyone recognize this pitcure? I've had it for a while now and would love to know the backround of what was going on.

    The good old days. Imagine if this were today???

    You toy with us, Rock. I wish I were a cop back when we were allowed to be cops.

    My initial guesses would be either the Harvard Sq. riots or busing in southie. If you don't luck out, I'd contact the folks at the MSP Museum and Learning Center. Someone there could definitely help.

    Thank you. Guess the cat's out of the bag, I'm a bit of a research nerd.

    I knew a Trooper who worked undercover during those riots who got a wood shampoo from his own guys. Tough times.

    About 15 years ago I went to a massive brawl out at The Tent at Marina Bay....the best shot I got in that night was on one of my sergeants on a backswing when I didn't know he was behind me. I never told him until after he retired, and then he just laughed about it. He wasn't laughing that night.

    State Police end the takeover of a Harvard University building in 1969.

    I take it that's from the Harvard riots.

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    The university does not like to acknowlege those dark days. "Nope, didn't happen." is the usual response.

    Then, you can smell the class of 1970 two days before they return for reunions and hear the chanting 12 hours away. "Hey hey, ho ho, this Chardonnay isn't chilled just so!" "What do we want, BONUSES! When do we Want them, Retroactive to 2007!"

    Times have changed!

    That's one badass gas grenade launcher. At first look I thought it was an old movie projector.

    That's a CS/CN fogger cc, you used to pour whichever solution was used into the chamber and it created a fog that you, in theory, could control the placement instead of firing canisters. We still have an old Smith and Wesson model somewhere in the basement at work.

    I think it's a fogger, which basically produces a tear gas cloud continuously, my National Guard unit had one. It's better than tear gas grenades, because they operate continuously as long as they have fuel, and they can't be thrown back at you. You just need to make sure you're upwind when you use it.

    Thanks for the clarification on that, Johnny and Delta. On the MDC we threw dead fish and rotten Kelly's Roast Beef sandwiches at them.
