Do you know that the children in North Korea thinks Japan makes all the Disney movie? They have no idea they are American made.
Now that is a police state. An officer with a baton isn't.

There's something about this video that isn't right. It doesn't sit well in my gut. Something seems...weird.
I haven't slept yet. I watched this clip once, and it literally caused me to spend the entire night sobbing in my girlfriend's arms and trying to put my finger on what it was that bothered me so much. It's not the fact that the police are beating up the protestors; this is something we've seen before. There's something much more dark--much more black--than anything I've seen before this.
This video really, really disturbs me. It seems...manufactured.

ignorance is refusing to look at what led up to this incident and to take that video clip at face value.

Ah, but that is the question at hand, what if the protestors were trespassing, would it make a difference, or were asked to leave or given fair warning?
Most police are issued a uniform, as part of that uniform are equipment to do their job, weapons go with the territory. If the protestors were trespassing or had been told to leave and then chose not to, well then it is a different story. What if was at your house, all of those protestors on your front lawn chanting, would you have wanted the police to be nice about evicting them or would you just want them gone? Was there any blocking of the entrances and exits?
There are too many questions to make a judgment about this.
As much as I dread the idea of another war. I think a war needs to be waged against the ruthless cops that refuse to make peace.
The police attacked without apparent provocation.
The people responded by pulling the injured to safety and shielding them. It's infuriating, but the people handled it just as they should have. Non-violent resistance
