Is this also a "war crime"? See: French police clash with 'yellow vest' protesters in Paris, 129 arrested.

Or is it only a "war crime" if the military uses tear gas? But not if the police uses tear gas?

PARIS (Reuters) - Police fired tear gas, stun grenades and water cannon in battles with “yellow vest” protesters around the Champs Elysees in Paris on Saturday and clashes erupted in other cities across France in a third weekend of demonstrations against high living costs...

...there were 5,500 protesters in Paris and some 36,000 elsewhere in France. Police unions reported 582 road blockages.

Nantes airport in western France was briefly closed after protesters reached the tarmac and clashes with police broke out in the city center. In Tarbes in southwestern France and Le Puy-en-Velay in the center of the country, protesters laid siege to local police stations. Violent clashes also broke out in Charleville Mézières in the northeast.

For anyone interested, enter "yellow vest protest movement" in a search engine and select "images". Lots of interesting stuff, apparently this has been going on for a couple of weeks and it is getting bigger. US news coverage of this is almost zero.
