Dangers of Tear Gas

Hey everyone, sorry I keep posting so much! It's my way of procrastinating on other work.

I just saw this article on BBC and thought it was interesting, particularly with all the riots going on in Egypt, Syria, and even at Occupy Oakland.

What do you think? Should tear gas be used as a means of dispersing angry crowds? Or does the threat of injury and sometimes death outlaw its use? How should governments deal with potentially violent mobs? Do citizens have an unlimited right to free speech and assembly, or should governments place limits on human rights?
