Why does the government not want us to have a voice?

Its comments like this that continually get my blood pressure boiling.
APPARENTLY ITS NOW ILLEGAL TO PROTEST - VIOLENT OR NOT - ANY KIND!!!
As that is what your comment and others of the like are implying! Of course the act of protesting is going to break some law of some kind as that is the point! You are showing your disapproval of something! Plus, lawmakers make such laws so in the event this happens...... ITS ILLEGAL!
So the act of protesting is for the most part 'against the law' I am shaking im so furious!!! That pig woulda had my boot to his face! This is where all this is headed! Ridicule me all you want, but how many videos and images of this will it take to wake up!
Non violence should beget non violence. Those kids did nothing to warrent that officers act of flexing his muscle!

This was on yahoo:
The online "hacktivist" group Anonymous published the personal contact details on Monday of a California university policeman who used pepper spray on protesters, and it urged supporters to flood him with phone calls and emails.
On youtube the otherday i came across a video of OWS in Tulsa,OK and it showed cops also pepper spraying sitting protesters. I thought about sending the video to some news sources to see if it makes the air.I lived in Tulsa for 20 years and cant not stand the police there they are so arrogant.

I'll tell you where the "nonviolent" thing falls to pieces.
If it is I, protesting and getting hurt, I will play the role of Ghandi and use their violence to shame and discredit them.
If it is my daughter, the pig dies.

See, the moment the pepper spray would have been used, I would have been in the guy's face.
To hell with civil disobedience, that guy needed a good shove in an eye opening direction. However, I can't help but wonder why in the flying hell would ANY police officer find this an appropriate move on their part? Perhaps its a good thing however.
More and more people are starting to see the brutalization of the little people in a big way. While I hope it doesn't escalate to such violence as Tahrir Square, I can't help but think that 'Non-Violent Protest' is getting us no where.
