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.

Don't want maced?
Simple, don't go to stupid fucking protests.
You want change?
Work for it, instead of sitting on your arse on a pavement all day.

Why do you support police using mace, rubber bullets, tear gas, and batons at these protest?
Do you condone the actions of the authorities doing the same in lybia and egypt?
Regardless of whether or not you support this movement, how are you okay with this?

In Lybia and Egypt, they aren't using rubber bullets and pepper spray.

You wimpy, naive children are a disgrace to people who truly have to fight for their freedom.

You fight for your piece of somebody else's pie. And, you whine when you are treated like the bratty children that you are.

How about just shutting the Hell up, finishing school, hitting the pavement (with shoeleather, not a tent), and finding a job?

Stop wasting everybody's time and the taxpayers' money. The taxpayers are the real 99% (even if only 53% of people in this country pay taxes) and the only people you're hurting are them.

By the way, did you know that the 1% pays 40% of the taxes in this country? Did you know that the top 10% pay 90% of the taxes in the US?

How much more is their "fair share"?

How about EVERYBODY pays taxes? Now, THAT would be fair!
