It is clear where the Indy is getting this (false) chronology from. They are getting it from the only source that has reported the chronology in that way--the police. EVERY firsthand account, including those that laud the crowd fighting back, have independently confirmed that this happened AFTER the cops charged the crowd, released gas, and struck demonstrators. And yet Sorg is still intent on putting forth this "troublemakers" and "outside agitators" narrative, even when its only source is the police themselves, who have a clear and obvious interest in retroactively justifying their behavior. What a pathetic excuse for journalism.
