1. Whatever it was, not tear gas but irritating something,

not thrown by police. Smoke bombs thrown AT police.

2. Objects thrown at police first

 

About 15 minutes after curfew started.

3. I'm watching it live on MSNBC.

They're reporting that it's apparently from some kind of smoke bombs that were thrown by protestors and that the police haven't deployed any kind of smoke or gas.

4. Police have now deployed pepper balls.

I don't know what "pepper balls" are. Probably like pepper spray but in a canister or something.

6. Pepper balls are pretty much the same thing as paint balls,

only difference is the contents of the projectiles.

5. Something's on fire.

The streets have mostly cleared. It's mostly police and media plus a small number of people who seem determined to disobey the curfew.

9. The remaining small group is throwing things at the police.

The police are showing restraint.
