There has been unwarranted and massive police brutality against peaceful demonstrators exercising their First Amendment rights. A veteran of the Iraq War is in serious condition due to the actions of the Oakland Police Department.

      The Police in this Counrty are to much like a military force. The Government needs to be brought down several nothes.

      The Police are there to PROTECT AND SERVE. But to PROTECT AND SERVE what? The people who pay their wages through taxes or the interest of the "1%" who are many times exempted from taxes? Well if CITIZENS standing up, demanding equality with the 1% leads to militarization of the police, then I think we can adequately determine where the loyalties of the police lie. if the only purpose the police SERVE is the violent PROTECTION of the status quo--i.e. corporate run control of the world--then they must leave. I am reminded of the images of African Americans in the 1960s being hosed down by racist police for preaching equality. Must striving for equality always have such dire consequences?
