    Press was pushed out of Dewey and across the street, and arrest wagons parked so as to block film crews from seeing what was going on inside the park. Only the one "police approved" photographer was allowed in. Those who tried to film were roughed up and had lights shined into their camera lenses to stop filming. Chris Faraone of the Boston Phoneix was told to get out or he'd be arrested. He had to have a "BPD issued" press pass to be there - BPD hasn't issued those in 8 years.

    Just because we weren't openly tear gassed doesn't mean civil rights violations didn't happen. There was, in fact, an LRAD present on Atlantic Avenue, though it was not used. BPD was ready to incite a riot, just like last time.

    When are you going to understand that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage. - Practical Magic
