I remember they did this at the G20 event in Pittsburgh last year.
Some of you may remember, it was all the rage on ATS a while back when everyone was discussing the noise weapons/deterrents they were using. They were
driving up and down streets blaring a deafening high-pitched siren. There were also several videos of them clad in rather expensive and flashy gear,
marching down streets beating the piss out of people, even young women.
Well I specifically remember a video, where everyone was herded into a park area on the campus at the Pittsburgh University, who were mostly students.
In the video, the people kept saying "They couldn't go anywhere, they have us surrounded and blocked off." The police kept telling them to leave, yet
they couldn't, and eventually moved in on the students with tear gas and batons. The video ends when someone is getting beat to the ground.
I thought that was crazy. Some people claimed that "they were lying about being stuck there or surrounded" and that "they shouldn't be there anyway".
Yet they were on campus at their school, as far as I remember.
Last year, around that time, I still held an ounce of disbelief at the current state of police brutality, corruption and manipulated events. The
police chief declared martial law on the city, and many people were rounded up and beaten, as a show of force. After that event, I know longer give
our police "situation", any benefit of the doubt.
