CNN Anchor Suggests the Use of ‘Water Cannons’ in Ferguson; Twitter Responds

Twitter has schooled Rosemary Church on water cannon usage.

CNN anchor Rosemary Church has just received a dragging courtesy of Twitter. Church had the audacity to suggest that maybe “water cannons” should be used on the protesters in Ferguson, Mo., and the look on Errol Barnett’s face was priceless.

Maybe one can say that because Church isn’t from the U.S. (she was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland), she doesn’t actually know much about the old-school police tactics used on black people during the civil rights movement? Or maybe she doesn’t know that water cannons are actually quite harmful? Or maybe she’s just another talking head on CNN who has no idea what she’s talking about?

Most of the people on Twitter agree with the latter:
