      this shit is NOT going to go unanswered.  There is no doubt in my mind that there is going to be a violent response to the wave of cop violence.  I think that the "Black Block" troublemakers are going to get even more troublesome this year, and it's going to make it harder to demonstrate peacefully, because when one of those people breaks a window and the cops start breaking heads, people are going to start to go all South Korea on their ass.

      The cops have no respect for their fellow citizens and no fear of demonstrators, what with their shields and masks and armor.  I think they are going to be seriously surprised when they start winding up in the hospital themselves.

      Don't know how to get around this.  The cops have made peaceful protest impossible, I think President Kennedy had something to say about what that leads to.

        If the government is unwilling to hold law enforcement accountable for violent criminal misbehavior the only remaining remedy will be retributive violence.

        Advisors for President-Elect Barack Obama feared the new administration would face a coup if it prosecuted Bush-era war crimes, according to a new report out this morning.
