53. Don't worry, there will be video as there always is, which is why the police tried to make taking

their photos, illegal.

We already have seen video of brutality from this weekend, so I do not doubt we will see video of those protesters being brutalized by the cops.

Much as you appear not to want to believe it, since last September, 99.9% of the violence at Occupy protests has happened only when the police showed up. The Police are the violent perps at every demonstration.

They have nearly killed many civilians, who were saved by other protesters, there is plenty of evidence of their brutality hours and hours of footage, from any different angles.

I do not understand your question. When the cops were held back in Oakland for a day, a day when over 100,000 people showed up to both protest their violence against protesters after the near killing of two Iraq war vets, there was not a single act of violence for the entire day. That many people, with minimal police presence because they had so disgraced themselves just days earlier, and not a single violent act.

The police are the violence instigators, every, single time. They are a threat to the safety of American citizens and should be kept far away from citizens exercising their 1st Amendment rights. I don't know why there have not yet been arrests and prosecutions. We are still waiting for the name of the criminal who nearly killed Scott Olsen. It's been months now, their 'investigation' must surely be complete??
