Thank you for being someone to offer up something as evidence.
In this video, I see only 4 possible cases of abuse. The first two where a cop punches a guy, and when the cop flips and pins a guy in an orange
shirt. I can't hear what is being said between the cops and the protestors, or see what led up to the incident, but it looks like they more than
likely used excessive force. The incident with the women and pepper spray, most certainly. That incident was more than 3 weeks old and not at the Time
Square location. The last possible case, was where a guy was laying under a cops scooter rolling around. The cop doesn't appear to be driving it
exactly, and I can easily see this one as a guy trying to make a scene or get arrested.
Let's assume that even that last one, and the others are certifiable cases of police brutality. The all occurred in the day time, and uncertain of
the location in proximity to the Marine.
The Marine said he saw a woman get punched. If this is the case, whey did he not charge in when witnessed and risk arrest to defend the woman?! Why is
no one criticizing him for his lack of action there? If he had made a big stink at a legitimate point of brutality as he claims, THAT video would have
been on the internet and I may just well be singing his praise as a hero of the people. But no, we only see him at night in an area of police doing
nothing, and screaming as if they were clubbing people left and right. His main complaint in the video was that there were cops even there and they
were dressed in partial riot gear.
I hope any cops who abuses the protesters get fired. I also hope that any protester who acts like an @$$ to feel important or get attention for
themselves or any social/political cause, gets the full punishment for their crime. This Marine, in the video that is his claim to fame, was simply
making an @$$ of himself. He defended no one. He just puffed up his chest, and let out a lot of hot air.
