Yesterday I was on the receiving end of a few police batons and lucky enough to only inhale trace amounts of pepper spray–and that was plenty for me. Thankfully the baton hits were gentle as they moved me out of the way and the tear gas/pepper spray was not a direct hit like which is more than I can say for some of the protesters. Definitely a day of adrenaline! See video below or on the USA TODAY On Politics Blog (with commentary!) and look for the long chaotic clip where I hit the deck while rolling.
