      Now what do you have to say about the fact police excess is vastly over-reported here on DK?

        My contention is that there should be NO police excesses at all.  The shit that the cops did to the Occupy encampments and demonstrations was not merely unconstitutional in many cases, but criminal as well.

        The fact that people here are unhappy with such abuses of authority does not constitute "over-reporting" in any way.  Discussion of same in several diaries with varying viewpoints is also not "over-reporting."

        You know why there aren't any diaries about cops NOT abusing Americans?  Because nobody gets - nor deserves - any publicity for doing their job the right way.

        Struggle with dignity against injustice. IS there anything more honorable that a person can do?

      •  So it is okay by you that (0+ / 0-)

        protesters get beat up, kettled for hours and then tear gassed when they have no where to go, bottled up in vans for hours until they are forced to soil themselves, taken to jails and crammed in together and not allowed to sleep, eat or defecate and those that don't get that treatment get slammed into car fenders, plate glass doors and what ever else is handy (and oh by the way if you have a medical condition don't ask to keep your meds!)

        All that is okay, but us expressing our dismay and displeasure displeases ....YOU?
