People protesting the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd in nearby St. Paul, Minnesota, ran from tear gas deployed by police. The tear gas canisters used by the St. Paul police appear to be manufactured by Defense Technology, a subsidiary of Florida-based weapons dealer Safariland, whose tear gas has been deployed against protesters in numerous other U.S. cities in recent days.
