After the first ICE guard ran us over with his truck, the rest of them ran over & pepper-sprayed us. The police present just stood by and watched, doing nothing.

Via Daily Caller:
A protest outside a prison that works with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) turned chaotic after a truck drove into the crowd, and officers were forced to use pepper spray on demonstrators.
People affiliated with Never Again Action were protesting Wednesday night outside the Wyatt Detention Center, a privately run facility in Rhode Island that has a contract with ICE to hold illegal alien detainees. The prison, located about ten miles north of Providence, has been subjected to Never Again’s protests since July, according to the group’s Facebook page.
This tweet is dishonest
Report says protesters were *pepper-sprayed* by officers after they wouldn't move: "About a dozen people were treated for irritation due to the pepper spray … 1 person was taken to the hospital for a minor injury"
No mention of injuries from the truck https://t.co/OpOlgdV762
