44. No one punched a horse, the cops are lying.
The cops are trying to make people believe unarmed protesters would attack police on horseback who have guns and nightsticks.

The horses were used as weapons, against us. Plenty of people got knock down.

This isn't the first time the police on horseback have attack protestors. In 1992 the Republicans had their convention,in Houston and the police attacked people across the street from the AstroDome sitting on the ground listening to speeches. About 50 cops charged down on these people on horseback, many, many people were injured. Nightline showed this live, and I will never forget that night. I didn't get hurt because we had got there late and we had to stay in the back area, so we could get to safety.
