With the whole world watching...

Some times there are things done by the police that can't be ignored:  The shooting and critical head injury done to a protesting Marine, in Oakland, over the last few days is one.

This is our country and we OWN it.  We pay for the streets, we  pay for the sidewalks.  They are ours to use, even in Peaceful protest and to use because OUR taxes paid for them.

Remember when arch enemy China arrested people for just standing in a group, silently?
Do we really want that sort of police force here?

  1. I stole your crowd control clip for my own blog. It's a scandal how the police have behaved.

  2. Amen to that.

    This must stop, and it must be recognized for what it is. It's an out of control public service created so that we all didn't have to carry guns.

    This public agency is NOT EVER to be used against the People, exercising their constitutional rights.
