Looking at all the barriers put up, the massive legion of officers in top of the line riot gear and all of this. They went way overkill with this against some protesting citizens, especially since it is our right to do just that.

And people complain about the protests costing tax payer money, gee I wonder why?

No one will ever know and everyone will believe whatever the MSM says afterwards. The police have strategically divided them on purpose in order to squelch free speech, by threatening abusive force.

I don't know why you are so angry and determined to apologize for a police state. People were still speaking when the cops moved in, quit lying about it...I'm not the only one watching. You're just making a fool of yourself.


Who says I'm angry...I'm actually pretty pleased with the Chicago police in how they handled it. They handled occupy when they were in Grant Park well...and they handled this well.

Of course you will get the ATSers that cry over every action the police take...but you can never please drama queens.

Then they failed by inciting violence. The police themselves are the cause of the violence, how is that keeping anything peaceful? The only thing "not peaceful" I've seen is police beating protestors and threatening the use of sound weapons.

From what it looks like on these streams, I would have assumed they declared local martial law.

Please show how they incited violence.

ATS members love to make this claim all the time...but they can never show any proof.

I think the CNN coverage was primarily for propaganda - there was a HUGE show of force.
The tactics used in Chicago were really quite chilling - going after the indy press before the event, arresting people and accusing them of terrorism - when (reportedly) it was just beer making stuff?

Wheeling out the LRAD so early on, and having a few cops put on gas masks - the really heavy handed initial confrontation w/ the black block.

I never really trust the black bloc. Can't ever tell really who's side they are on. Often suspect they are provacateurs. Didn't see any block block guys bleeding either....just the protesters that were behind them.

So I dunno. Think it's all been designed to show how powerless and futile resistance is. JMO.

I'm sure the business owners in the protest area are extremely grateful for the police presence.

Have you seen the videos of people cheering the police as they were moving to the protests areas??? I'm not sure if those made it on youtube yet...it was on the local news.

If you want to make claims like the police are inciting all the violence...you need to provide specific examples or look like a fool.

I'm very happy with how the police handled it.

I've always told you...I love watching protests...especially when the idiots start getting beat down for failing to employ basic listening skills.

Well, I've only been watching for a couple of hours and have yet to see any police brutality or anybody causing problems. Did anybody get a video of what you are telling me happened, I'm guessing earlier.

Maybe read it, go to the links and watch the friggin videos.

I'm offering my opinion...just like everyone else.

My opinion is that these protesters that decided to stay to cause confrontations are idiots and get what they deserve. These idiots also make the rest of the days protests look bad.

My opinion is also that the police have done a fine job of dispersing the remaing fools who decided to try to cause trouble and are now just left to wandering the streets.
