This is just the latest in a series of criminal acts of unprovoked police violence against peaceful Occupy protesters. See this [2]this [3]this [4]this [5]this [6]this [7]this [8] and this [9].

As I noted [10] earlier today, the problem is the militarization of U.S. police forces [10]:

Journalists from across the spectrum have documented the militarization of police forces in the United States, including CNN [11]Huffington Post [12]Forbes [13]Esquire [14]The Atlantic [15]Salon [16], and the Cato Institute [17].


But the militarization of police started long before 9/11 … in the 1980s.
