Anyhow, it's clear from the photo that the cops aren't even looking at the man, but instead focused on something more menacing in the background. Shame on the photographer for not capturing what is actually going on.

That weapon looks like a teargas launcher, though I've never seen one so I'm only speculating. If so, it's used to disperse a crowd, not subdue individuals. It's painted scary black though, so clearly an "assault weapon".
