13. what's up with the cop on the left?

the hair, hair color and headband look awkward to me. ETA: also the only cop with full pants and full sleeves and no sunglasses. Looks like that cop took sunglasses off to hang over the first word of Hedy's shirt.

They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel at these departments.

Take this Ashland Massachusetts Police Officer as an example.

7. ...

 

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) --At least eight people were arrested, including a 90-year-old political activist, following a march in downtown St. Louis Monday afternoon. The marchers were protesting Governor Nixon's order to activate the National Guard.

The protesters, who chanted "National Guard has got to," marched from Kiener Plaza to the Wainwright building at 3:00 p.m. Monday. Governor Jay Nixon has an office in the building.

Eight arrests were made around 4:30. All of the suspects were arrested for failure to disperse. One of the people arrested was Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor, who is now a political activist.

To the idiot jury ...I say this because if I were her and they tossed tear gas it would bring back some real memories. I am sooo pissed about this.

11. +1, 000, 000

Funny I was watching cops on cnn telling people to move from a spot police themselves had ordered them to earlier. To another spot and then arresting people and journalists for standing still in the second spot they were ordered to, instead of marching.
And I said outloud " the police are acting like jack booted thugs. My god, they don't even care that the eyes of the country are on them.
So if that lady thinks it is an injustice, what happened, then the people of this country need to wake the hell up!!

25. What an idiot...

He fired at least 5 or six shots...maybe more. Unbelievable. He imagined a threat and then just went crazy with a barrage of bullets... That poor old guy. Plus, his wife kept wandering into the road while trying to figure out what had happened; I was afraid she was going to get hit by a car.

Awful video. Scary and sad. Shocking.

Thank god that cop was a piss-poor shot. With all the bullets he fired, that guy should have been dead.

I know that I have heard to stay in the car with yours hands on the steering wheel until asked to get your license, etc., but I never took it seriously that some cowboy cop would really think I was a threat.
