Suppressing Nonviolent Dissent

An anthology of police brutality at encampments across America.

Veterans assaulted with truncheons, women dragged through the streets by their hair, grandmothers pepper sprayed in the face, peaceful protestors bludgeoned while sitting. Sound like something authorities in Egypt, Tunisia or Syria would order and condone? Think again. It's happening here in the US.

Actually he made a valid point and you just responded with an insult. Ows revels in being disruptive and causing mayhem and the police responded in kind. Most people want these demonstrations to end. I think you will continue to lose support as this goes on.

The police responded to peaceful protesters with violence and 'he' supported it, as do you I assume. These demonstrations will not, and should not end, because what you are witnessing is the death of Democracy in your country. Support is worldwide and growing, that is why your police are resorting to this kind of action, it has been luck rather than judgement that nobody has died yet. If you want to see the future of your country look to Syria or Egypt.

In Syria and Egypt, the people were and are protesting against oppressive governments and military rule in efforts to bring freedom to their people, as they understand it.

OWS is protesting against success and the people who have earned it, because a bunch of spoiled children are jealous and want to steal their own piece of the other guy's pie.

It's literally disgusting that you morons compare yourselves to people who are willing and sometimes have to die for their freedom.

Now, go answer your iPhone and play on your iPad, moron.
