Police PepperSpray Activists

Police Casually Walk a Line of Sitting Protesters Spraying Them Point Blank in the Face w/ Pepper Spray (Occupy LA)

(November 18th, 2011) Just released, an officer casually walks a line of sitting protesters spraying them point blank in the face with pepper spray after they refused to follow orders. This will probably be all over the news soon claiming excessive force. They should have followed orders and it wouldn't have happened. They were told to leave after cops had took away their tents, the protesters refused.

    As a veteran, I fought for your right to freedom of speech. I also fought for the right to tell you how fucking stupid it is.

    Force is only authorized when evading arrest or applying force in return. These people are sitting down. They are not fighting the police, they are not running and they are not being violent.

    While I respect that you have the right to say what you feel. I believe that you should be pepper sprayed for saying it... they're just sitting... you're being loud and stupid.
