Nope. Not a war crime. Because the use of tear gas is legal by US police and US federal authorities. Note the "military" did not participate. However, due to a 1975 executive order, the US military is allowed to use tear gas for "defensive purposes", even though the US became a signatory to the UN convention in 1997 (not 1993). The US Senate specified that provision at the time of signature in 1997, and they have prohibited any presidents since then from changing US law to remove that provision.
