    Even in the report from this post, the newscaster says that police responded to an "unruly crowd". Then the people act like they were just out having a picnic. Newsflash people of California: You instigate a fight with the cops, and you're gonna get it.

    Like I said, it's these people who need training. Training on how to be a civilized human being. You have a beef with the cops? Fine. Just better not come confronting them and instigating violence. Lessons learned protestors.
    You are ignoring the reason for the protest. One of their fellow citizens was executed by these cops. That is why they were gathering. They were protesting police brutality. If ever a police force was in a position where moderation was demanded, it was this situation just because of the reason for the protest. They reinforced their image as the bad guys with their brutal response. I expect a great deal more from police. They're well paid babysitters who shouldn't have guns. That is, unless they can prove that they actually have brains and I don't think that is a occupational requirement.

    That is pure BS. If the POLICE are being protested then why block traffic, break windows on PRIVATE cars/shops and start fires? Did you see ANY signs? Most of the "protestors" may, in fact, feel that the police (or at least an officer or two) did something wrong, but that does not mean that the police should simply no longer protect themselves or others in the community. Selecting small segments of carefully editted film can make any situation look just the way you want it too. Many other reports describe property damage and lawless behavior, the perps dash through the "protective" crowd and seek cover among the "innocent", as the police persue them it looks like they are "cruel" to those that seek to stop their chase. It is rarely those in the front row that throw the rocks or bottles, smash property or cause mayhem, they hide behind the "innocents" that offer them cover. The actions of the crowd (mob?) must be addressed as a whole, since access to specific individuals within it is nearly impossible, BY DESIGN.

    Lack of training is a lame excuse. They had ample time to train since the OWS police brutality.

    Exactly how many dead OWS protestors have we seen, nationwide? I don't seem to remember any, but I may be mistaken.

    You measure police brutality by the number of persons dead?

    Look up Wiki or your own source for the definition of Police Brutality.

    I don't need to look anything up. I know what my definition of the term is quite well already, thank you very much.

    There's no excuse for breaking the law, not on the part of the police or the protesters.

    People who engage in civil disobedience should know that they will be arrested, tried, convicted, and punished. It's an extreme statement of protest, but there should be no expectation of leniency.

    Having said that, is there even any need any more to point out that the whole post-racial America thing is just not working out?

    For those of you that do not recognize it the quote here is called "common sense". When our police (you know the folks we call when someone is being raped, beaten and kidnapped) do a wrong go after them legally. Why trash your own town destroying other people's property? Recall the Los Angelas riots where the blacks burned their own neighborhoods down leaving some folks homeless. "Don't bring a knife to a gunfight".
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
