  •  Complaints to the US Civil Rights Commission (6+ / 0-)

    Force public hearings on excessive use of force being used to crush protected political dissent.

    U.S. Civil Rights Commission
    Can't individuals make complaints?

    Congress has oversight powers. Call your Reps and Sens and demand they hold hearings on excessive police violence and repression of the First Amendment rights of citizens. Why should they be comfortable?

    Complain to the US Attorney General, and to the various State Attorneys General.  

    Make some noise.
