The American and local governments make so much talk about freedom and liberty yet react with such brutality toward those who take advantage of the liberties they have been given to address grievances they have with their government.
I see your point, but "to all things there is a season". there is a time to protest, and a time to Gather suporters, Preverably amoung law inforcement so what is illistated above does not happen. Besides What is Anaheim? And were was this? California is notorious For Using police brutality against Assembly's Greater then 3. everywhere else excluding the capitol I can't imagine such a thing happening without just cause.
The concept of 'free" trade is misleading as hell.
It implies that there is an even starting point, but if your already a billionaire tycoon and you flood the markets with venture capital funds to squeeze out the 250k companies it plays out like bigoted tyranny.
Protest it, I friggin dare you!
Only then does this picture take on its most potent appeal.
And "fascists" in place of "fasts"
Excuse me..I tend to type too fast and sloppy! lol
I read an article online awhile back where they actually denied a man the occupation of policeman because he was literally, "too smart", and "Would get board with police work". Doesn't surprise me. The dumber you are, and the less you question things, the more controllable you are.

The building was abandoned for years, what the hell does the city care if something useful is done with it? In a place like Oakland, with extrordinarily high amounts of murder, rape, break ins, prostitution, etc., the only thing the police care about is a group of people trying to improve their community..
They have a few vids on Youtube, we should try spreading them.
I think that might explain the psychopathic nature of some cops.
If you are going to hurt me do so with your own abilities.
Democracy Now, though it's pretty biased, even if it is toward the protesters. [link]
Basically search Anaheim Police Brutality, and you'd probably find a lot of results on what will probably become a highly partisan issue.
"we're gonna free the shit out of you!!"
At any rate nice piece.
For a country that has contributed so many artistic wonders to the world, it saddens me to see the casual thuggery of the authorities. When I see things of this nature, I can't help but think that something is deeply wrong with America, that there's no relief to the problems the people face and that the entire nation has a kind of cancer, eating away at it piece by piece.
Like I definitely don't hate America. Had it not been for America giving sanctuary to my ancestors, I wouldn't be here. And as someone who spent time in Paris, I can definitely say there's a lot to be admired about America with its efficiency and convenience and of course its food and its art [link]
America has just lost its way. And it really bugs me when people use words like liberty and freedom not as actual ideas but more as essentially meaningless propaganda words.
I've just become incredibly cynical about government yet incredibly optimistic about people since around 2011, seeing both the rise of populist movements and the brutal backlash by government forces.
