People saying that this guy must of broken the law and deserved this, may or may not be true. The problem here is the manner in which this was done, there is suppost to be a process during an arrest, where a person is read thier rights and have been told why they are being arrested. Having protesters around does not negate the responcibility of law enforcement to act according to the Law.

These clowns went there to cause trouble so they could make these tapes and spread false propaganda.

That is one of the worst posts I have read here, by someone who likes to think they know what they are talking about....
do you really think that anybody in a riot situation is worried if their pants are bloused correctly with their boots? I can guarantee there are service men right now in the desert that have unbloused pants.. and are not concerned with it.
Typically, when a contracted security force is brought into a situation like this.. they will don "military" looking uniforms to give the idea to the people around that the military is involved. It is a form of psychological warfare, making those they are against feel up against a larger force. Most people do not pay attention the the details.. just that there are men in camo.
The point you are talking about the riot gear.. you have obviously never been in the police force.. they don't particularly go around and make sure everyone is wearing the same gloves.. thats a laugh.

Your right I have never been in the police force, but as stated above Ive worked with them for many years. And what about you???? who said any thing about everyone wearing the same gloves. My point was you don't get all dressed up in the fancy plastic riot gear and then put on mechanic gloves. They are not suited to combat situations. Before you jump on that one yes I know about Mechanic gloves. Ive been a hobby racer for more dollers then I care to remember The backs and tips rip far to easily there only gift is they grip well but there is no protection there what so ever.
The whole out fit is gearted for protection do you honestly think they are going to leave the backs of the hands unprotected?
Next time maybe do a little research before posting ok.
