“We were seeing a lot of injuries to the face and the head that required some surgery and caused some blindness,” says Dr. David P. Darrow, a neurosurgeon at M Health Fairview and Hennepin Healthcare Systems hospitals in Minneapolis.

“This seems pretty extreme to us, especially since many of the people injured were just bystanders, not even in the protest.”

So less-lethal can still be overkill.
