I looked but didn't see a thread about this situation in the recent pages
Well it seems like 2011 is the year of protest and riots and sure enough it's made it's way into the US.
First off I think the police are handling the protest incorrectly.
Here is a video of one on the Brooklyn bridge. NYPD makes no attempt to stop protesters from getting onto the Brooklyn bridge, knowing that they would be arrested if they made it to the main roadway. The video shows the police LEADING protesters onto the roadway (even stopping traffic to let them through) and then blocking them off with nets in the middle of the bridge with no escape and arresting 700 people.
There are plenty of videos and accounts about this situation. Pepper spraying girls etc. What is your take on it? The only violent parts of the protest are majorly started by the police thus far. Nothing overly violent has happened yet.
