Following the murder of George Floyd, protests have continued across the United States and the world.

By now most of you will have seen the videos of clashes between protesters and police officers.

People are understandably angry and disturbed at the daily anti-black violence which is often perpetuated by people who are supposed to uphold the law. Meanwhile, the president has been accused of “fanning the flames” of conflict and it’s all looking extremely distressing.

In Atlanta, Georgia, a remarkable video captured police forces using tear gas on protesters.

But the wind had other ideas, as the gas is seen being blown back onto the police rather than towards the protesters.

On social media, some people interpreted this as a sign that mother nature is not a fan of people being tear gassed.
