  •  You make it sound like it's okay (3+ / 0-)
    In the 1960's, you would expect to be set upon by dogs, sprayed with a fire hose and beaten with truncheons - or even shot.  
    People knew that they would face that abuse, but that doesn't make the abuse right.

    I really don't understand where you're coming from here. You're suggesting that it is okay for non-violent protestors to be met with violence. I don't get it. Just because that is what often happens does not make it right.

    Sometimes the police have to take a deep breath and use patience as a tactic. The fact is, nothing was on fire at UC Berkeley. They could have kept their cool.
