Phoenix protesters stirring up trouble after President Trump’s rally received a less than kind welcome from local police. Gas and pepper balls were lobbed into groups of hooligans in an effort to disband the juvenile chaos.
One protester got a little more than he bargained for and is now part of internet lore.
This athletic shorted gentleman, donning a gas mask was shot right square in the nads with a pepper ball after he kicked a gas canister back in the direction of law enforcement.

Maybe don’t kick gas at riot cops?

Don’t we all?
Maybe it's because it's a week from football season, but every time I see #PepperBalls I hear "…here comes the BOOM!" in my head.
