"This was a paramilitary assault," said Naomi Archer, a spokeswoman for South Floridians for Fair Trade and Global Justice. "There has to be some accountability."

Is she correct, is the local government overstepping it's powers, or testing them to see just how much they can get away with?

The police state is closer than people know, when is it enough?

On one hand, looking at the meeting in Seattle, Quebec and elsewhere, I can understand the police's point of view. There has been a lot fo violence and damage done by protesters in other cities. However, I also think their heavy handed approach was a bit much. not everyone's a potential looter, and I'm guessing thsoe who were considering taking advantage of the chaos were scare too #less to do anything about it.

A good example of what happens at these things. The article quotes such "attacks" by the protest as "Sling Shots and objects thrown at officers". Now since obviously the "Chicken-Sh!t" people who were doing that weren't the ones in the FRONT of the crowd, they weren't the ones to get beaten down by the officers. Only the peacefull protesters get beaten down as they are the ones near the police.

Stupid people always ruin it for everyone!!

Know what bothers me about all of this,

where are the individuals protesting that are unhappy?

why is it a bunch of 'suspect' socialistic umbrella groups showing up at these protests with their rent a crowd with them.

in my mind there would be a lot more credibility if there were real average non-agendized types showing up to voice their displeasure or dissatisfaction.
