JWH44, I have a couple of questions for you.
1st, why do you hang around on this board and read the posts?
2. I am aware there are 2 sides to every story, but with a lot of the info posted on this site in regards to law enforcement and military, are you appalled by any of it? And if so, if you find it unconstitutional, or an abuse of powers, what are you doing, or willing to do, from your position to make a difference?
looking forward to your reply.

It's a disgrace! Really, these people's taxes pay them, and they treat them like this? What is happening to America? God, we don't see this in Canada. Then again, I must say that the police here in Toronto are very friendly. The first time I visited in 1997, I was lost downtown, holding a map and trying to figure out where I was, and a cop car approached me...

The second video is a relatively small, peaceful assembly by we are change, who were denied a permit to march in protest.
Portions of the third video were taken by students at Pitt who were gathered in a dorm union, watching the protest on the street below. Students in the adjacent stairwell were gassed, lightly injured by the scuffle and not allowed to leave the area to return to their dorm. They were not part of the protest.
