    I can't help but feel that this looks identical to the civil rights protests in the 60s where State and local police ran a muck and pounded on peaceful protestors who were just seeking the right to vote and desegregation.  I find it very sad that after all these years of civil rights advancement and the election of this nation's first black President, some whites (primarily in the south) seem so stuck in the past, and that their local police still seem to think that there is nothing wrong with beating on black folk who take to the streets to demand justice.

    Personally, I hope that President Obama and Attorney General Holder come down hard on the local police, like the Kennedys did in the 60s.

      Ha! That would take a little thing called courage.

      Obama: Pro-Pentagon, pro-Wall Street, pro-drilling, pro-fracking, pro-KXL, pro-surveillance. And the only person he prosecuted for the U.S. torture program is the man who revealed it. Clinton: More of the same.
