I’m sorry, this has gone too far. This has happened in police department  after police department, and it has gone too far. Our police look like  the goons in Russia and China. Please watch this video and send it to  everyone you know. This has gone too far.


This is pretty horrifying.
Here’s my idealogical crisis of faith about OWS:  It doesn’t become powerful until all of those people standing around taking pictures are sitting down with the protestors.  They can’t pepper spray everyone.  But I can’t bring myself to be one of those people because I don’t understand what it ultimately accomplishes.  Me not understanding the intent is not the same as condemning the intent, but I just kind of don’t get it, you know?
