and more footage to add additional context...
I have friends in this crowd, for what it's worth. Really close ones at that. I have no time to diary, as I'm working. So this is it. Here it is.
Watch the video at least from the 3 minute mark on and tell me, what do you think and what do you feel? This is some of the clearest footage that I've seen yet on last night's arrests -- 11 that were reported, IIRC. And yet, it looks a little like a Hieronymus Bosch painting after the 3rd minute into this video. Cops in riot gear with batons with lots of people on the ground. I will spare the commentary. Watch it yourself.
So how exactly does this sit with you? Ethically?
Just wanted to share and bear witness together.
Sorry no time to write anything profound. Hope the video speaks for itself. It shouts at me. I keep thinking, "I have friends in that crowd." But no idea what's happened to them yet.
If this troubles you, kindly phone SF Mayor Ed Lee: (415) 554-6141
